But the Caps then found themselves playing defense against an aggressive Sanderson team for much of the first half. Sanderson scored twice in the half and junior defender Grant Tyler prevented another Sanderson goal near the end of the half when he cleared a ball in front of an open net.
Broughton had some scoring chances as the second half began, with the Sanderson keeper making good saves on shots by Krueger and then Gettinger.
But Sanderson scored twice more in the second half, once off a free kick and once off a long throw-in that somehow found its way into the goal, to earn the 2-4 win.
The Caps' record now stands at 12-1-2 overall and 9-1-1 in conference play with three conference games remaining in the regular season. Their next game is Wednesday, at home against Wakefield.
