Otselic Valley 5, Brookfield 1
SOUTH OTSELIC – Otselic Valley reached the 10-win total on Friday night racing to a 4-1 lead over Brookfield in the first half.
“It wasn’t a great game from our point of view,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “We were just a little ragged and rough around the edges, and I hope we can work out the kinks. Brookfield played hard and made a game of it.”
Jason Olin led the Vikings’ offense with hat trick, and Dusty Davis had the Vikings’ other two goals. Dylan Comfort picked up eight saves for OV, whose record is now 10-2 overall.
“It was a closer game than the score indicates, and they probably had the ball more of the time,” Loomis said. “We were just able to put the ball in the net when we had the opportunities.”
