Nathan Skeen Shines as Foothill Defeats De La Salle

Foothill opened their spring break trip to the Bay Area with an 8-6 victory over De Lasalle on Wednesday night. Nathan Skeen led all scorers with four goals, three in the first half, and one assist. Goalie Ryan Blank (13 saves) and his defense teamed up to hold De La Salle to their second lowest point total of the season and half their season average.

Foothill out muscled the Spartans for 16 of 20 first half groundballs. The Dalis brothers, Tanner Boston and Jared Copeland took advantage of hanging Spartan sticks with multiple destickings. Sam Cron and Myles Smart dominated X with great help from the wings Nathan Knight, Chris Reem, Dalton Rach and Jared Copeland. Other scorers were Steven Oberly (1g 1a), Elis Geis (1g 1a,) Josh Fox (1g, 1a) and Evan Brown (1g).

Big thanks for the De Lasalle players, parents and fans. It’s a long tradition each to play them and they are always incredibly hospitable.
