Hyde capitalized on some of Rocky Hill’s mistakes and was soon ahead 5-0 after an Alex Holland 13 goal. On the defensive side of the ball, senior goalie Blake Smaldone 12 was impressive in his first start and made some key saves in the first half to shut down the Rocky Hill offense. In the second half, Hyde continued to dominate both sides of the field led by junior attackman Joe Yanovitch’s 13 three goals in the second half and McMorrow 12 who finished with six goals on the day cruised to victory 18-9 to claim their first win of the season. In addition to the offense having a strong day, defensively  Ethan Thoms 12’ andEvan Dienstag 12’ helped shutdown the Rocky Hill firepower.
