Latin scored first goal of the second quarter. Cannon then put a run on scoring three unanswered goals by Timmy Hennigan from Trevor McWilliams, Baylor Koch from Connor Larkin and Trevor McWilliams as a result of an aggressive ride. Score was 10-5 with three mins to go in the half. Latin scored another goal with less than a min to go off a quick whistle. Halftime score 11-5. Third quarter had Latin posting three goals to Cannon’s one goal by Brendan McWilliams. Latin posted 4 more goals in the fourth while Cannon put up two goals by Brendan McWilliams. We played down three players due to injury and two players due to sickness. We continue to work hard and once we can get a full team playing we will pull it all together. Two conference games next week home at Cannon on Tuesday and Friday. The team is coming together in time to peak for the playoffs. Keeping everyone healthy will help us in our playoff run.
