Landon 10 Good Counsel 5

The boys left campus on a nice, sunny and 60° degree afternoon and by the time that they arrived at the wind swept plains of Olney, Spring had reverted to Winter, or so it seemed. The Falcons came out hot, but eventually the 40 Bear players who got onto the field prevailed 10-5.

 

The home team took an early lead with an unassisted goal at 5:34 of the 1st period. The Bear defenders received a vociferous lecture from Coach Leachman. Landon finally responded when Peter Laco scored an unassisted goal with 0:51.2 remaining in the 1st quarter.

 

END OF 1ST QUARTER BEARS 1 FALCONS 1

 

The visitors took the lead at 9:23 with shot past the home goalie by Zach Buller. The GC team tied the game up at 7:57. The junior, future Dolphin Attackman drew attention from the Falcons’ D to make a pass to fellow 5th former (Charlottesville commit) Austin Petty who had time and room to blast a shot by the poor adversary goalie at 6:48.

 

Robbie Dunigan displayed his exceptional speed as he blew by hid Falcon middie to deposit the Bears fourth goal only 0:28 seconds later. A Falcon long stick middie scooped up a loose ball on the next face off and was able to score on his charge to the Landon nets.

 

HALFTIME SCORE BEARS 4 FALCONS 3

 

Coach Bordley’s halftime speech, the depth of the Bear roster talent, Jason Murphy’s successful face off adjustment or all of the above resulted in a very different 3rd quarter. Mr. Petty hit the bottom corner of the net at 7:15. Then Sam Lynch scored from a sharp angle at 6:48 for the Bears’ sixth goal and then Sean O’Brien added to the advantage at 3:16.

 

END OF 3RD QUARTER BEARS 7 FALCONS 3

 

Once again at the seemingly magical period surrounding 07:00 of the clock, the Bears increased their total goals with two successive scores—O’Brien from Laco at 6:43 and then the future Quaker/current Captain (a/k/a “Halo”) fed future Red Raider fellow Co-Captain for his 2nd goal of the day and the Bears #9 goal of the game. @ 6:14.

 

Many of the freezing teammates now had a chance to get warm as the Coaches freely substituted at every period. Within the last two minutes the Falcons had two tallies (@1:40 and @ 0:53.6). After the Falcon flurry, Jack Falk scored on an alley dodge @ 0: 47.1.

 

FINAL SCORE BEARS 10 FALCONS 5
