Las Lomas scored the first goal of the night in their first possession. But Grant Jackson answered back by scoring the next goal. Leo Barakos and Michael Bone also scored in the first quarter with one more put on the scoreboard by LL. Score at the end of 1st quarter was Dons 3 to LL 2. Fynn Chorak had a beautiful pass to Nathan Lee for a goal and Nathan Brickman sent one to Jack Thoren for another goal. Score at halftime Dons 5 to Las Lomas 4. Considering that the last match up of these two teams ended in a tie and a Don’s win in overtime, many were wondering at halftime if this game was going to be a repeat.

Matty Mariani was unstoppable at face-off winning 11 takes all together and every take in the 2nd half. Jake Landry, Nathan Lee, Nathan Brickman, Jack Thoren and Luke Olson each had goals in the 2nd half. Final score Dons 10 to Los Lomas 4.
