ULN Dispatch – 04.23.2015

High School

– Boys, Varsity | Park City 16, Skyline 3 (User Submitted)
Park City Varsity traveled to Skyline Stadium on Wednesday to make a statement and the mission was accomplished with a 16-3 victory. Park City turned it on early and often winning all 4 quarters on the day. The offense was led by the high power attack trio of Kolton Atkinson (5g 3a), Cole Flinders (5g 2a), and Beau Pederson (2g 4a). Also contributing on the day were midi’s JJ Pickard (2g), Chad Merrick (2a), Chase Christensen (1g), and Rhino Smith (1g). Ian Sime faced only 6 shots on cage (3 saves) as the defense of Josh Hales, Tobin Greenwald, Jeff Turner, and Chase Flinders suffocated the high powered Skyline offense that had only scored less than 10 goals in 1 other game this year. Jackson Burton was strong on faceoffs as usual even though his stat line was lower than typical (14 of 22 for 64%) as the PC wings had some trouble picking up gb’s on the inconsistent stadium grass. With the win PC moved to 15-1 (3-0 in conference) on the season with 3 games to go.
– Boys, JV | Park City 14, Skyline 5 (User Submitted)
Park City JV set the tone for the day with a 14-5 victory over the Skyline JV team. 9 different players registered points on the day. Leading the way was Will McNamara (4g), Alec Olsen (2g 2a), Matt O’Brien (1g 2a), Eli Levine (2g), Nick Butterworth (1g 1a), Kyle Walterson (1g 1a), and Christian de Lemos (1g 1a). Gator Olsen and Parker Burnham also chipped in with a goal each. Connor French and Billy Honey combined to make 6 saves. For Skyline, goalie Dell Smith made 15 saves as he was under a constant barrage of shots for 4 quarters.
