The Palisades Dolphins, ranked No. 11 in the latest coaches poll, returned from an 11-day layoff Tuesday and didn’t miss a beat. Palisades (7-3) jumped out to a 14-0 lead and routed visiting Birmingham 24-2 for its fifth consecutive victory.
Aidan Caso (7 goals, 3 assists) led the Dolphins scoring, with Macchio Rissone (5g, 3a), Alessandro Caso (4g), James Burkes (3g, 1a) and Ethan Rubin (1g, 3a) all contributing at least four points. Fifteen of Pali’s 24 goals were assisted, and eight different players figured in the scoring.
The offense had opportunities throughout the game thanks to face-off middie Milo Sherman, who won 22 face-offs and also contributed two assists to the scoring effort.
After a Thursday game at City League opponent El Camino, the Dolphins take on No. 5 Westlake at home on Friday.
