Rittman High School
With rain falling throughout, and after a 45 minute delay for lightning and thunder, the Indians came out storming! The boys scored 5 goals in the first 15 minutes, to put this one out of touch for Tuslaw. Brandon Leyva scored the first and third goals, almost identical, 25 yard shots from the right side to the lower left post and in! Sandwiched around were 3 goals by Grant Frase in the initial half. After some liberal substituting Tuslaw managed to place two shots into the net.
The second half again started strong as the Indians saw more goals – 2 from Will Swartz and one from Eli Vale. Brandon and Eli both scored their first ever varsity goals!
Assists were credited to Will Swartz (3), Grant Frase, Michael McDermott, Logan Leach and Allan Mackey all with one each.
Kye Scheibe protected the pipes with his usual high level of acumen and was adeptly replaced by Jakub Zehetner.
The Indians now stand at 4-3 on the season. They do not play again until Saturday, Sept 16th when they host Northwestern at an 11 a.m. varsity match followed by the JV game.
