Sewanhaka had junior Sultan Taj pick up a nice goal to keep Sewanhaka fired up. We saw more of the same from Roslyn in this quarter, good shot selection and ball control. Also, their defense was strong because they held a good Sewanhaka team to just 2 goals in the first half. The score was fourteen to two at the half.

Sewanhaka’s scorers were seniors Christopher Salazar and Christian Batista. Roslyn hung tight with the good ball control. Sewanhaka stepped up with big goals and playing stellar defense to hinder Roslyn’s fierce offense and keep them to just one goal the whole quarter.

Overall, for Roslyn, they played well in every aspect of the game today which is presumably what led them to the big win. This game should give Roslyn some serious momentum moving into the playoffs. For Sewanhaka, it was a tough game. However, they shouldn’t beat themselves up too much. After giving up fourteen points in the half, they held a good Roslyn offense to just four goals in the second half. This should be a morale booster to them seeing as their playoff hopes are still alive.
