Trinity Prep pulls to 3-3 with win over University               

Trinity Prep pulled to an early 1-0 lead to start the game but University would not go away and finished the first quarter down only 3-2.    The second quarter was all Trinity Prep as the Saints scored 5 goals including back to back goals only 5 seconds apart in the first minute of the quarter when Dylan Davis scored on a feed from Luke Macchia then returned the favor on the ensuing face-off, dishing off the fast break ball to Macchia who finished with a nice turn-around shot from the hole.

University fought back again in the third quarter scoring 4 goals including a pair by Tyler Boncore, to finish the third down 10-7.  They moved it to within two at the beginning of the fourth quarter but the Saints answered right back.  The Cougars again moved the score to within two at 6:17 into the fourth on another Boncore goal and looked to be ready for a rally.  But 5 seconds later at 6:21 Macchia answered again off of another fast break feed from Davis right off of the face-off to score what would prove to be the back- breaker.  The Cougars would not threaten again as the Saints scored another two unanswered goals to finish an exciting, clean, fast game at 14-9.

Dylan Davis led the Saints in scoring with 6 goals and 3 assists, Luke Macchia added 3 goals and 5 assists.  Long Stick Middie Ryan Hinkley continues to score goals as he netted 2 last night.  That brings his total to 12 goals in 6 games while playing LSM.  Christian Funk added 2 goals and Travis Fredrick scored for the Saints as well.  Tim Carney picked up an assist in his first game back from an injury.  Reid Gill had another great game in the net as he continues to exceed the coaches’ expectations for the rookie goalie with 13 saves

Defensively Tom Huffsmith led the Saints with 12 forced turn-overs and picked up 7 ground balls.  He was awarded the P.A.W.S. (Promoting Athletics With Sportsmanship) award by the University captains for his hustle and sportsmanship.  Jon Wiese had 10 forced turnovers and picked up 6 ground balls and Justin Felder and Jake Smith teamed up to cause another 12 turn-overs. 

The Cougars were led by Tyler Boncore with 3 goals and 2 assist.  Kyle McDavid scored 3 goals and picked up an assist.  Frank Schornagle had two goals and 1 assist and Keith McDavid scored 1 goal.  Charles Faircloth made 9 saves in the goal.

The Saints (3-3) will head to Boone (5-0) for another District match up on Tuesday and the Cougars (2-3) take on Dr. Phillips (2-2) this Friday.
