Los Alamitos has taken the first two steps in regaining Sunset League supremacy beating league rivals Marina on Monday and Huntington Beach on Wednesday. Last year was the first time since 2008 that anybody except Los Al had won the Sunset League title outright.
Los Alamitos struck first as Cody Miller assisted his twin brother Tyler Miller three minutes into the first. Jackson Browner faced a barrage of shots stopping all but three in the first half racking up 9 saves as Los Al went into the half up 6-3.
Los Al’s defense kept Los Al’s lead strong after tightening up in the second half and limited Huntington’s shots on cage. Hunting Beach’s James Sidrak still managed to score four goals as he tried to lead his team back from their early deficit with his last goal bringing them within three at 9-6. Browner got two more saves in the second to bring his save total to 11 as Los Al scored two late goals to finish the game. Brandon Ezell and Tyler Miller who both had a hat trick in the game were ever present on offense leading Los Al to a convincing 11-6 win.
Huntington Beach has a chance to bounce back tonight as they play tonight (3/14/14) at Beckman and Los Alamitos has a week to prep for their big matchup against on the 21st.
