Danes Drop Game to Dawson
April 25, 2012Fountain Valley School
The Danes suffered another tough defeat against the Mustangs of Alexander Dawson on Saturday, in spite of the stingy defensive play of the Danes. The game was played at CSS field to honor the CSS/FVS cooperative team this year.
The Mustangs played ball-control offense for the majority of the game, while the Danes played a zone defense. The Danes' defense would play well for a series, then clear the ball to the offensive half. The offense, while running decent plays, was unable to possess the ball for a sustained time period, so the Mustangs gained the advantage with many offensive opportunities. The game progressed this way until midway through the fourth quarter, when the Danes began to pressure the ball on defense. Mat Larimer had another big game between the pipes with 17 saves.
The halftime score was 5-2 Mustangs. The game ended with a score of 8-4, Mustangs. Dane goals were scored by Ian Pelto (2), Luke Dilzell (1 goal, 1 assist) and Sage Houle (1).
