Junior Ty Caffarelli (No. 44 above) and Lucas Newton (No. 24 above) and senior Shawn Fromme (No. 20 above) combined for 12 goals to lead Corona del Mar to a convincing 18-8 win over Servite in the first game of the season for the Sea Kings. Caffarelli lead all scorers with seven goals and Newton (3g, 1a) and Fromme (2g, 2a) picked up four points each to pace CdM.
The Sea Kings never trailed and controlled all aspects of the game by winning 17 of 26 faceoffs and frustrating the Friars on the defensive end of the field. Juniors Tyler Brown, Alex Chanawatr and Chase Habermehl made it difficult for Servite to find an offensive rhythm, helping senior goalie Wyatt Rieden pitch shutouts in the 1st and 3rd quarters.
