Freshman Tristan Moss was 13/19 at the faceoff x. Goaltender Justin Lugo was credited with 8 saves in the win.
Tha Bobcats were led by Ryan Eisenmann who scored a game-high 5 goals.

Tonight at 7 at Oxbridge in West Palm Beach, we will get an early season look at a couple of teams who may meet again in the state play-offs. Both ranked in the top 10, this should be a good one.
