Belen over Miami-Killian 14-10
The Belen Jesuit Wolverines won an inter-district game against the Miami-Killian Cougars in Cutler Bay, Florida last night with a final score of 14-10. Illegal stick penalties in the 1st and 4th quarters were devastating to the Cougars erasing an early goal and setting up prolonged man-up opportunities for the Wolverines that resulted in 5 goals. Despite at 6-2 lead at half time, the Cougars kept pulling close, but a strong Belen performance for a 5-3 goal advantage in the 4th quarter sealed the win. Leading scorers for Belen included: Edwin Riccardo – 6 goals, Patrick Arrojo – 3 goals, Jorge Powell – 2 goals, followed by Robert Cosio, Kevin Pascual, and Michael Rodriguez with 1 goal.
