Once again the Varsity Boy's CapsLax overpowered a Southeast Raleigh team with a dominating defensive performance, winning on the road 20 vs. 0. A Johnson and A. Cole combined for a rare shutout in goal, coupled with another stellar defensive performance registered by the strong Broughton D-pole combination of G. Gordon, G. Johnson, H Black, and K. Jones. In addition, G. Johnson and H. Black each got on the offensive stat sheet recording an assist and goal, respectively. Aside from a few procedure penalties, the FOGO trio of W. Purcell, M. Eades, and D, Angell won the important faceoff battle, securing nearly every possession, particularly in the first half.
On the offensive side, give a shout out to J. Moore who had a career high 5-point game (3 goals; 2 assists), and to C. Gilchrist who after being promoted from the JV team went onto to record 2 points (1 goal; 1 assist) in his first varsity game. A special acknowledgement goes out to C. Robinson who notched his first goal of the season at the buzzer as time expired at halftime. Goal production was shared throughout the entire offense lead by M. Dupere (4), S. Creech (2), then followed by H. Black, J. Burke, G. Cameron, C. Churchill, S. Cramer, C. Crouch, J. Dixon, O. Fleming, D. Pitts, C. Robinson, and C. Whyte who recorded one goal each. Of more important note, 12 of the 20 (60%) goals were assisted, something the team has been emphasizing in preparation for the three remaining conference games leading into the playoffs. Leading the way were M. Dupere (3), J. Moore (2), followed by D. Angell, S. Cramer, S. Creech, C. Gilchrist, G. Johnson, W. Purcell, and C. Whyte each with one assist apiece.
The team prepares for senior night this Friday @ 7:30 PM @ home following the Lady CapsLax Varsity game where we will acknowledge the 14 seniors who have made this particular Broughton CapsLax team so special.
