The Agoura Chargers, who climbed from No. 10 to No. 7 in this week’s coaches poll, potentially climbed up another rung on the ladder Tuesday with a 12-7 victory at No. 6 Peninsula.
Junior middie Marty Shargel led Agoura with goals, and senior attack Lucas Lagola scored four. Mark Adams, Jacob Roub and Zach Tripp (1g, 1a) also scored for the Chargers, with help from Noah Miller (2a), Brad Roache (1a) and George Galer (1a). Sophomore Spencer Foreman won 18 of 22 faceoffs for the Chargers.
Agoura (2-1) actually trailed the Panthers 4-2 late in the second quarter, but a four-goal burst in the last two minutes gave the Chargers a 6-4 halftime lead. Another four-goal run to open the third quarter put the Panthers in too deep a hole to recover.
Senior goaltender Connor Graves did his part to keep Peninsula in the game, recording 13 saves — many of them spectacular. Junior Kyle Beachboard scored three times; senior Emilio Nunziati had two goals; and seniors Koby Tseng and Kurt Landon each scored once. Junior Scott Phillips again lead the Panthers with nine ground balls.
Peninsula (2-1) plays at No. 15 El Segundo on Friday. Agoura plays host to No. 14 West Ranch on Friday.
