Slow Start Dooms Lane
Apr. 20, 2017
A slow start and Lane found themselves down 9-1 at halftime against Oak Forest. The offense couldn't get much going and the defense spent a lot of time trying to get the ball back to the offense. Vince Wilkinson scored the only goal for Lane in the first half on a dodge down the alley and a high hard shot that found the top right coner of the net.
It's wasn't until the 4th quarter that Lane began to show the talent they've demonstrated in recent games. Using speed, Vince Wilkinson scored again in the 2nd half to get Lane going with another high hard shot. In a man down situation, James Coyne, senior defenseman, forced a turnover, scooped up the ground ball and quickly fired a pass over the midline that resulted in an assist from Ike Wolf to Brian Tait.
Tait then assisted Wolf for Lane's fourth goal. Then another to junior, Roman Treuthart, who deftly grabbed Tait's off shoulder pass and buried it far post. Tait then scored his second of the game for Lane's sixth goal. But time had run out. Final score was 11-6.
Max Velazquez had a nuymber of saves in goal for Lane. Scorers were Brian Tait (2G/2A), Vince Wilkinson (2G), Ike Wolf (1G/1A), Roman Treuthart (1G).
