Orchard Lake St. Mary’s snapped a three-game losing streak with an 11-6 victory over Troy on Saturday, April 30.
Chris Koski had four goals to lead the Eaglets (5-5), along with two assists.
“I am not saying Chris came of age today because that might be too strong a statement to make, but he’s certainly beginning to understand the offense after 10 games and it couldn’t come at better time,” said St. Mary’s Head Coach Greg Normand. “We’ve asked a lot of Chris since Doug Boyd was lost for the season with a broken leg, but I really think some of this stuff is starting to sink in.”
Nick Parr also had two goals and five assists for the Eaglets.
“Nick is another one beginning to understand what we want in this wide open offense,” Normand said. “In the beginning of the year, Nick thought he had to score, but we’ve asked him to pass and that’s working for us right now.”
Garrett Anderson and Spencer McInnis also had two goals each, while Sean DuPack and Brandon Fagnani each scored a goal.
Peter Miller, a freshman, also picked up the win in net for St. Mary’s, who hosted Warren De La Salle on Tuesday, May 3 after press time, and will welcome South Lyon tomorrow, Thursday, May 5 and Okemos on Saturday, May 7.
