St. Margaret’s continued it’s push towards No. 1 by beating San Ramon Valley High School 16-9 on Friday.

San Ramon Valley entered the game with a 7-1 record,  their only loss being a 13-11 opening day decision to the St. Ignatius team that is ranked No. 7 nationally in the Under Armour/IL poll.  St. Margaret’s became only the second team this year to put up double digits on the Wolves.

Things started off well enough for the Wolves when  Austin French (Denver)  scored off the opening faceoff to give San Ramon Valley a 1-0 lead.   The Tartans took over after that and went on a 10-1 run to close the half at 10-2.  Nick Shanks and Samuel Harnisch both riddled the Wolves’ defense with first half hat tricks.  Paddy Fallon scored two first half goals, and Kevin Cox and Nick Iavarone had one each.  Liam Mullin who finished the game with three goals scored SRV’s second goal of the half.

San Ramon Valley tried to comeback in the the second half but the Tartans would have none of it.  John Connolly led a defense that continuously frustrated an offense accustomed to putting up 14 points per game.  When the Wolves did manage to generate some offense, Payton Fales was there to make 16 saves.  Paddy Fallon became the third Tartan to score a half-game hat trick when he did it in the final 24 minutes to finish with 5 goals on the night.  Shanks matched Fallon’s output and added three assists to finish the game with eight points.  S. Harnisch had 6 points (3g, 3a).  Cox scored 2 goals and Iavoarone one.  Erik Suh and Ryan Harnisch ,who won 16 faceoffs, each had an assist.
