Grant Zimmerman recorded his first win as a head coach on Wednesday night as the Center Colonials defeated Mount St. Joseph’s by a score of 23-1. It was a dominating performance for the Colonels to secure their first win the the Zimmerman era.

Centre was led by Miles Diehl with 5 goals. Chase Poplin and Leland Gray each tallied 3 goals in the Colonels win. In goal the Colonels played Connor Jongewaard, Willis McCutcheon, and Jack Perryman as they all split time. 

Kevin McClanahan scored the lone goal from Mount St. Joseph’s. In goal for the Lions Austin Lowery and Dakota Lambing split time evenly with each guys getting 30:00 of action.

It was a dominating performance for Centre, and it all started from the opening faceoff. With Nic Malubay got the scoring started for Centre early on in the first. That Malubay goal was the start of a five goal run to open things up for Centre in the first. Mount St. Joseph’s got their first and only goal from Kevin McClanahan with 1:57 in the first. 

After that Centre continued their domination as they held a 15-1 lead at the half. They continued that trend through the second half as the Colonels finished with a 23-1 win over the Lions. 

Centre lead in every single category during this game. They had 57 shots to Mount St. Joseph’s 7. In the ground ball battle it was 45-11 in favor of Centre and the Colonels converted 19-20 clears as well. That much success all over the field usually leads to wins, and it did here tonight for Centre.
