KVA continued its commanding play in the second quarter, scoring four more times to take a 9-1 lead into the half.

Luke Pegram led the Spartans with four goals in the game, with Sam Fuquay scoring thee times, Franklin Irvin and Hayes Griggs adding two apiece and John Robert Carr scoring once. Carr also continued to dominate on faceoffs for the Spartans.

Coach Scott Burnette credited Troy Bickel for controlling the middle of the field for KVA.

“He is like the point guard on the field,” Burnette said of Bickel. “And our defense obviously played well, holding them to one goal with Jordan Smith doing a great job in goal.”

The Spartans shut out Parrott in the second half, but only scored thee goals, substituting freely and working on passing and their offensive sets for the 12-1 victory.

“So many people played well. It was a great team effort,” Burnette said. “We did a great job running our fastbreak offense and controlling the ball for the entire game.”
