  • Christopher Santa Maria’s second goal was a nasty backhand after he deked the goalie

Key Takeaways

  • David Spielberger led all scorers with a hat trick.
  • Emily Barber played well in goal.
  • Caleb Santa Maria was injured in the first period due to an apparent knee injury. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!
