Kevin McMorrow 12 to put Hyde ahead early 3-0. Hyde controlled the tempo for the majority of the first half and on the defensive side of the ball, defenseman Matt Forelli 13 was stellar along with starting goalie Blake Smaldone 12 to put Hyde ahead at the break 8-2. In the second half, Hyde continued to “pour it on” and Yanovitch 13’ continued his hot shooting  putting his fifth goal of the day away at the end of the third quarter. Senior goalie, Cullum Thompson 12 took over in the second half and anchored the defense along with help from senior defensive mid-fielder Kevin Smith 12 to help Hyde cruise to victory and remain unbeaten in SENE conference play with a final score of 16-6.
