Warriors Go on the Attack, Pound Newbury 22-9

Westlake’s starting attack line produced 16 goals Wednesday as the No. 3 Warriors pounded visiting No. 6 Newbury Park 22-9 in a Marmonte League game.

 
Spencer Tyoran (7g), Duke Cohen (5g, 4a) and Brett Reilly (4g, 1a) did most of the damage for Westlake (10-3, 5-2), which won its third in a row after consecutive one-goal losses to Oaks Christian and Thousand Oaks. The win re-establishes the Warriors as the favorite to win the Marmonte — four other teams are currently tied for second with three league losses.

One of those teams is Newbury (10-4, 4-3), which lost for the first time in six games.

Wednesday, Westlake’s Kitt Stoddard won 23 of 27 face-offs, goalie Matt Kilkeary stopped 12 Panthers’ shots, and defenseman James Sullivan collected nine ground balls.

With all that possession time, Westlake poured on the scoring. The Warriors led 6-2 after one quarter and 10-4 at halftime.

In addition to the offensive display by its three starting attacks, Westlake received contributions from middies Jacob Mannisto (1g, 3a), Joe Brandolino (2g, 2a), Nick Reilly (2g) and Stoddard (1g, 1a).

Junior Robbie McInerny scored four goals for Newbury, and senior Chasen Colter scored three. Senior Jack Jensen (1g, 2a) and senior Erich Wuesthoff (1g) also scored.
