The Norsemen scored quickly 14 seconds into the game, but that would end up being the only lead for the Norsemen. The Foothillers scored 4 in the first and led throughout the game. A great battle by two hard fought teams. The Norsemen never trailed by more than 2 until the 4th quarter when the Foothillers outscored the Norsemen in the 4th 2-0. Andrew Higginson led the Norsemen scoring with 3 goals, also scoring one each were Matt Ramey, and Sheldon French. Erik Nordquist’s 2m play resulting in getting 4 Foothillers ejected, and his active defense helped with a steal and 2 blocked shots. Erik was player of the game. The Norsemen have to settle for 2nd place in league, and now move on to the playoffs. Chances are they will meet Grossmont again in CIF.
