Senior captain Dea Edington was the top scorer with an impressive seven goals, five of which were scored in the first quarter. Junior Wyatt Barker and senior Cale Smith also played an aggressive game, with Barker scoring six goals and Smith scoring four.

Goalies, junior Erik Parawell and senior Riley Dow let in only three goals in the first two quarters and zero in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Parawell gave up four goals, but at that point the game had already been sealed.

“Today was a huge team effort because everyone got playing time. And everyone played at least half a quarter, so it was really good to see the young kids play as well as the seniors starting,” senior Ishan Pherywani said.

The team will play at home against Tam on Oct. 27 at 8 p.m.
