Men’s DI Floor Hockey Showcases Goal-Scoring Talent

In Monday night’s first Division I Floor Hockey game, Young Gunz took on the Buttrixes.  This game was highlighted by prolific scoring and assists, and four players, two from each team, tallied a hat-trick.  The Buttrixes got off to a fast start, scoring three goals in the opening three minutes.  Not falling behind, however, Young Gunz, equalized and then took the lead briefly at 4-3, before the Buttrixes closed out the half with a 3 goal scoring run to lead 7-4 at the half.  In the second half, Young Gunz came within one of the lead, but were unable to take advantage, and in the end, fell by a final score of 11-8 to the Buttrixes.  Bryan Rooney and Bill Carey led the Buttrixes with three goals apiece, while Brendan Green and Kevin Aufiero each had three goals as well.
            In the second game of the night, Puck Yeah competed against Puckin A.  Puck Yeah dominated their competition from the start, scoring three unanswered goals in the first half.  Tim Culverhouse and Ryan Randall led the way scoring for Puck Yeah in the first half, as Puckin A looked to get on the scoreboard in the second half, trailing 3-0.  The second half would yield no goals for Puckin A, however, as they were shutout by a final score of 5-0.  Joe Feeny scored two goals in the second half for Puck Yeah to close out the victory.
