“The biggest adjustment after the first quarter was changing sides,” Pimentel said. ”The sun’s glare on the water was incredible. Cameron (Neeley, the Cougars’ goalie) had a very difficult time seeing shots coming in.”
In the second period, Austin Davis and Nathaniel Camello had two goals each while Thompson and Nico Camello had a goal each for a 14-4 advantage.
“We are a more experienced team than Florin, and had no desire to embarrass them,” Pimentel said. “After establishing a significant lead, we told them ‘no more counters, set up the offense, and work the ball to the set.’”
El Dorado scored seven goals in the second half. Miller had three and Davis, Nico Camello, Kieran Taylor and Wienholz scored a goal each.
