The Trabuco Hills Mustangs had very little trouble handling the San Juan Hills Stallions Thursday night with a final score of 15-1.
Senior attack Joey Clarke scored 14 seconds into the contest from a nice feed from sophomore Harrison Evans off of the first of many face off wins. The first quarter ended with the Mustangs up 4-0 with added goals from Billy Barron (assist Jake Marthens) and 2 goals from Harrison Evans (assist John Kauo).
The trend continued into the second quarter as middies John Kauo and Jake Lansner dominated the face off spot. The Mustangs finished the half up 9-0 with goals from Lansner, Evans, Marthens and 2 more goals from Clarke, thanks to fine assists from Amiri Ponce and Andrew Blume.
Following halftime, the Mustangs didn’t wait to charge ahead further with Marthens ringing the bell first (assist Kauo), followed by nice dodge and rip by Ben Nguyen. Marthens found the back of the net again to log his third goal, only to be topped by Evans as he buried his 4th goal of the game.
The Mustangs cruised thru the fourth quarter but 2 more players would not be denied. Wyatt Koudelka drove from X beating his defender to get his first goal of the game and Andrew Blume let one fly, top left to beat the Stallions goalie once and for all.
All in all, a great team victory as eight different players scored. This young Mustangs team has surprised some around the county early on this season but have much stronger tests next week against Mater Dei and Aliso Niguel.
Defensive Coordinator Kevin Obeirne praised the play of the defense saying, “Although we had possession for a vast majority of the time we were focused and aggressive tonight, I’m happy with the way we played.” Goalie Nick Wilson and his defense should be very proud after this one and their stellar performance.
