Arrows Shot Down by Westminster

Arrows (0-2) shot down by Westminster Wild, 20-7. The Westminster Wild (2-0) keep pace with the Baltimore Bombers in Maryland IBLA action.

A huge offensive output was the difference in this one. The Wild blew it open with an 8-3 first quarter.  The rally was created with markers from, Myles Cohen (1g), Johnathan Thelen (5G,1a) converting a Justin Case feed, Hunter Davis (3g), Brendan McGrath (3g), Justin Case (2g 1a), Mitchell Howell (2g,1a), Will Smith (3g) and another from Thelen that more than offset the Arrows. 

Taylor Koncen (2g), Jay Minor (1g,1a), and Thomas Hanulak (2g) supplied the Arrows offense. The Wild built on the lead in the second with 6 more goals to offset the Arrows who posted 4. Thelen started with a pair. The second set up by Case, Hunter Davis, McGrath, Case, Mitchell Howell with his second, and McGrath getting his hat trick.

Maryland countered with net benders. Will Murphy (2g), Koncen putting home a Scott Joyner (1a) set up, and Hanulak contributing. That signaled the end of the Arrows scoring. Westminster kept the pedal to the metal with Thelen, Will Smith, Troy Becker (1g,1a), Thelen, McGrath from Becker, and Hunter Davis closing the score sheet. The Arrows get shot down in an offensive barrage.
