Josh pounded in our second goal at the end of the third quarter. The fourth quarter proved to produce the winning goal again by Josh but with the great teamwork of the whole team and an immediate assist by Loran. The goalie did a great job this half. Ben hustled as forward. Great game guys !

John Carter's energetic defense, and a steal by Brian Swartz held back the Attack. Justin Lashing scored a dynamite goal with Andrew Snyder and Glenn Steinbaum persistently pressuring the ball. Noah Nudell scored the second goal as defense by Michael Schlossberg, John Kellenberger and Sean Taylor helped Jack Johnson turn back attempts on goal.
