NEWBERRY - The Wolves have extended their win streak to three in a row after downing the Sailfish of Palm Beach Atlantic, 9-4.
The first ten minutes of the first period would see neither team score. After a number of unsuccessful consecutive shots, Daytin Vidovich would put the Wolves (4-3) on the board. But the Sailfish (2-4) would counteract Newberry with a goal of their own just a minute later. Palm Beach Atlantic would have a number of opportunities to score in the closing minutes of the first, but would not be able to connect. On a pass from Dylan Mansur, Jeremy Ross would end the period in style with a goal to give the Wolves the 2-1 edge.
Newberry would come into the second period with much energy and a goal from Matt Cromie. The team would hold heavy defense throughout the second period, resulting in the Sailfish taking a number of wild shots. Ross would strike again at the five minute mark via a clean pass from Cromie. Stone Boone, the reigning AstroTurf SAC Player of the Week proved why he received the honor, extending the lead for the Wolves. The Sailfish would close the half with a goal by Colin Hayek.
Mansur would open the second half with two consecutive goals. Boone would follow up his teammates efforts with yet another goal, with the help of Mansur. Palm Beach Atlantic would score their two remaining goals in the last four minutes of the third, but it was not enough to take down the Wolves.
Both teams would have a sequence of shots in the fourth period, but were not able to act on any of them. Boone would end the scoring for the Wolves via a pass from Ross at the six minute mark. Things would get a little chippy in the closing minutes of the game, with the Sailfish accumulating three penalties.
The Sailfish would edge Newberry in shots 38-37, but in the end it would not be enough. Goalie Erick Szurley would record a season high 15 saves on the game. Boone would head the pack, recording three goals and one assist. He would also launch off seven shots with all but two being on frame. Ross would see all of his shots be on goal and would add two goals and one assist.
The Wolves will begin conference play against the Catawba Indians on March 10 at 1 p.m.
