The Westview Wolverines edged the visiting Dawson Mustangs in a non-conference game Friday night. Westview’s offense got off to and early start with two quick goals by junior attack man Cole Carola in the beginning of the first quarter and the Wolverines never looked back going into the first half leading 6-1. The Mustangs had their chances in the first half but the Wolverines’ team defense and phenomenal goalie play by junior Connor Ciemiewicz (13 SV;s) stifled the visitors and proved to be the difference. Down 8-2 in the 4th quarter, the Mustangs staged a comeback by dominating the time of possession to chip away at the lead, but eventually came up short.
The Mustangs utilized their spring break to escape from the inclement weather to travel to San Diego to play La Jolla Country Day and Westview. Dawson is one of several Colorado teams that come to Southern California to enjoy the SoCal sunshine and test themselves against the California teams. Westview has hosted several Colorado teams over the years and makes a point to emphasize sportsmanship by hosting a pizza party in the stands so the teams have an opportunity to share in the love of the sport.
