Honorable mentions from this game go to Ethan Harrington and Austin Hyrn. Ethan is a Junior defenseman who always steps up when his team needs him. He performed very well in tonight’s game playing solid defense and making some big checks. Austin is a freshman middie who consistently scores many goals. Tonight he had a hat trick and an assist. Austin is a very valuable player to the Gators and you can always count on him to score goals when needed.
Great win Gators and good luck on Monday against Panther Creek!
