St Margaret’s dominated all facets of the game from start to finish in this match up between tw top 10 teams.  At the face off X went 16 for 22 in one of his best efforts of the year, he continues to improve as the year goes on.  In the goal Sebastian Chicas made 11 saves vs 3 goals for a whopping .783 save %.  Defensively the Tartans held Tesoro to 18 shots while the Tartan offense took 42 shots.  1 vs 1 as well as team defense were strong start to finish as Tesoro was held to 1 goal until the 8 minute mark in the 3rd quarter when they got their 2nd.   

Offensively the Tartan shot the ball extremely well to say the least.  The Tesoro goalie is having a big year so shooting accuracy was key in this one.  A combination of great inside dunk looks and accurate 8-12 yard step downs shooting was a recipe for very efficient offense with four players having 4 or more points on the night. had 7 goals in all and sparked the first half dominance.    went 3 and 1, he continues to have a big year despite drawing  the long stick defender the majority of the time.   went 1 and 3 while getting topside all game, while Seth Forstat went 2 and 2.  With 3 points Matt Goeninger shot very well from range going 2 and 1 hitting 2 open looks on 12 yard step downs. Start to finish, it was St Margaret’s night vs a very good Tesoro squad who just ran into a buzz saw but should make plenty of noise in the playoffs.
