Eric Fries scored six goals and added an assist to lead Corona del Mar to a 16-3 win over Huntington Beach Wednesday. Despite playing without Jordan Pakzad and Brennan Greenwald, the Sea Kings held the Oilers scoreless in the first half and allowed only six shots on goal the entire game. Jason Simaan also sat out, and Matt Saucedo filled Simaan’s big shoes with a 13/21 (62%) faceoff performance. Nick Puglia won his only faceoff.
Nate Neumann had a hat trick. Sachin Gokhale (2g, 2a), and Stephen Von Der Ahe (2g, 1a) scored two apiece. Jordan Greenhall (1g, 2a), Ryan Meckler (1g), Connell MacLean (1g), Bobby Purcifull (1a), Jack Denning (1a), and Nick Severson (1a) also got on the score sheet. Nick Guizan and Parker Susolik combined for three saves.
