During the game, the team scored a total of five goals in the first quarter, four in the second quarter, and twice in both the third and fourth quarters.

Coach David Wallace noticed that the boys’ “played hard all game.”

Our defense was very strong in the fourth quarter,” he said. “We played together to forced bad shots.”
