Game Recap

OMG What a final for the San Diego Open, featuring two each county teams that know each other very well. Friendly league rivals Valhalla and Grossmont. And what a game they delivered. An incredibly exciting game that was not decided until the final second of the 3rd overtime. The teams traded leads several times during the game, but neither could get more than a 2 goal lead. At the end of regulation when all the dust settled it was the Hiller’s 9, the Norsemen 9. In overtime each team scored twice to take the game into sudden death overtime. Each team had their opportunity during the period, but it was an exciting outside the 5m line shot that ricochet off the bar and off the goalie and then finally into the cage by Higginson that gave the Norsemen their first San Diego Open win in over 20 years. It was pretty much a one man scoring show by Andrew Higginson who scored a whopping 10 goals in the game, even though he was double teamed most of the game. Woody Kueber put in the other 2 goals. And out standing passing by teammates Sange, Romero, Kueber, Ramey, and Pyjar all assisting on goals. Sange had 11 saves in cage, but it was his buddy field blockers that were amazing. Kueber, Higginson, Ramey, Nordquist, and Pyjar all assisting Sange by making critical field blocks on Grossmont’s shooters. They combined to help Sange by making 8 blocks on Grossmont’s shooters. The 8 blocks is 1 block short of the school record, but an amazing feat anyway. This was one of the most exciting games I have ever been a part of in my 33 years of coaching, and it was a thriller. It was also a special final, as it was the first time two east county teams faced off against each other in the finals. More power to us in the east county, and lets hope it continues.
Coach Houston and Coach Mitchell are so proud of this team and its accomplishments.

Game Recap

After last nights win over Granite Hills the Norsemen earned a spot in the top 8 of the Varsity San Diego Open. Only to earn the first game at 8 in the morning against the top ranked Titans. Poway ranked first in the tournament, cam out hard and fast outscoring the Norsemen 2-1 in the first quarter. 2nd quarter was all ours as we scored 4 to the Titans 2. 3rd quarter was all us again as we dominated the quarter going up 8-5 at the end of the 3rd. 4th period saw a lot of action by both teams, with each team scoring 3 goals, but it was enough for the Titans as the Norsemen secured a spot in the top 4 of the tournament with the 11-8 win over Poway. Game standouts were spread all over the place as this was a total team effort. Romeo, Nordquist, Pyjar each with a goal, Kueber with 2, and Higginson with 6. It was the effort of Romero, O’Carroll, Kueber, Stockwell, Nordquist, and Higginson on defense that swayed the balance of the game in our favor. These guys teamed up for an impressive 22 steals in the game. However it was the incredible work of Trenton Romero in the guard position that earned him “player of the game” status with 11 steals.
