Ty Cahoe led the way for the Colts with 5 goals in the victory. Field Johnson also added four goals for DeSales, as well.

Bowling Green Tops South Warren

In the Battle of Bowling Green, the Bowling Green Purples took down the South Warren Spartans 1-3 in a hefty defensive battle. 

Junior Tucker Strode seemed to be the difference in this one, going 5-for-8 (.625%) at the faceoff dot, scooping up eight ground balls, and scoring one goal. The Purples also saw John Wuff and Ethan Ly score goals in the victory, as well. 

These two teams will face each other again in late April. The past two seasons, Bowling Green has won the first meeting and South Warren has gotten their revenge in their late-season meeting. So, we’ll see if history holds up this season or not. 

Fredrick Douglas, South Oldham Start Strong

Fredrick Douglas and South Oldham are both off to 3-0 starts through the second week of the season. 

The Broncos secured a 12-11 win over Tates Creek and a 15-4 win at Covington Catholic last week. Fredrick Douglas has an average win differential of eight goals and are currently led by junior attackman Zan Kropp, who has 24 points (16G/8A) through three games. Parker Randall has also gone 44-for-62 at the faceoff dot, thus far.
