The AYHL Maize team looked to be in control early in their match up with the Green squad early on Saturday morning at Family Sports, but soon found themselves in a dog fight during a battle of top contenders in the Arapahoe High School Summer League.
Maize got things rolling right away and jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first period. Zackary Fechner (2G, 1A), Brayden Orlowski (1G, 1A), and Jack Gorjestani (1G, 1A) all scored in the first to give them the early advantage.
Green would not be discouraged by the deficit, and would mount a comeback over the next period and a half. Jackson Mundell (2G) got the momentum back for the Green team by scoring two goals in the second, allowing his teammates to help out with two goals at the beginning of the third, capped off by Nathaniel Champeau's (1G, 1A) game tying goal to knot things up at 4-4.
It was not meant to be for the Green team, however, as Maize would pull away in the end with the last two goals to pull out the 6-4 victory. Joshua Allison (2G) would close things out by scoring his second goal of the game for Maize in the win.
