Howard 11, Atholton 6

Scoring nine goals in the second quarter, the Lions broke open a game they actually trailed by two at the end of the first 12 minutes. Nick Striebich led the way with four goals and an assist on a night where Howard coach Jimmy Creighton said his guys showed a lot of maturity.

"I don't really like taking timeouts early in the half, so we kind of just let them play through it," Creighton said. "I was proud of them. Atholton came out ready to go, but our guys didn't panic and really pulled together in that second quarter."

Goals: Ho - Striebich 4, Ruggles 3, Wendt 2, Mills 1, Gerus; A - N/A.
