CapsLax Handle Millbrook Again With Ease
The Varisty Boy's CapsLax handled Millbrook again with ease winning 11 vs. 2 away Wednesday evening, 4/13. Except for a better 1st period, this game was a mirror image of the 1st Millbrook game several weeks ago. Mitchell Dupere tied his career high scoring 6 goals with several being worthy of highlight film, including an overhand in full stride on a deep angled shot past the Millbrook goalie on an unsettled transition situation. Sonny Creech had another big night registering 3 goals and 1 assist. Just like in the first Millbrook game, it is always a fan favorite when a long pole scores—this time Wilson Purcell put one past the Millbrook goalie, bringing a roar from the Broughton faithful. Oliver Fleming rounded out the goal scoring, with Sam Cramer recording one assist. Austin Johnston had another great game both in the cage and on defensive clears, despite a rare own goal. Many of the clears pushed the ball forward quickly, which resulted in unsettled situations and transition goals. As has become usual and customary with this CapsLax team, the defense was dominant all evening lead by Harrison Black, Gray Johnson, Gray Gordon, Ruffin Jones, Kelton Jones, Rob Rader and others. Millbrook struggled all evening while on offensive thanks to another strong effort by the defense. Dane Angell, Michael Eades, Wilson Purcell and the other face off players dominated all evening winning nearly every faceoff. This game was another dominant team effort by the Broughton Varsity CapsLax team.
