The Riverview Rams (8-4) Varsity Boys team hosted the Canterbury Cougars (7-4) at the Ram Bowl on Thursday evening in a non-district, no-divisional matchup. The Rams scored first on a goal by senior Kevin Southerland to start the game, but the Cougars came roaring back with five unanswered goals, and took a 5-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Cougars defense stifled the Rams and pushed the lead to 8-3 entering halftime. Canterbury outscored Riverview 5-to-4 in the second half, cruising to a 13-7 victory.
Defensively, Riverview’s George Benitez played a solid game, forcing 2 turnovers, snagging 4 groundballs and even scoring a goal with the long pole with only :04 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Although the Cougars were able to find the back of the net with 13 goals, Riverview’s Will Leffler stopped an additional 12 shots by the Cougars, including 6 fantastic saves in the 4th quarter.
Canterbury had five different players tally 3, or more, points in the game, with Carson Fuchs (3G/2A), Sean Mahoney (3G), Chase Thompson (2G/1A) and Spencer Dopman (2G/1A) all contributing to the scoring. The Cougars’ FOGO Derrick Hueniken was 16-for-23 at faceoffs (70%).
