John Chase and Joe Cirillo each scored twice to power the host Patriots (7-1, 6-1 SMAC) to a rout over the Wolverines on Thursday.
Single goals were scored by Jimmy Moltz, Matt Schwartz, Adam Kratz, Nathan Howard, Jack Hillman, Ryan Phelps, Josh Shinsingsuk and Shane Frendach.
Huntingtown splits pair
The Hurricanes (7-3, 6-3) added a win and a loss to their record in a three-day homestand.
Against Leonardtown, Phil Brown scored, but the Raiders prevailed 2-1.
Against the rival Cavaliers (2-5-2, 2-5-2), Keith Merriman scored both goals as Huntingtown prevailed 2-1 in overtime.
“I am hoping our team has turned the page from inconsistent to consistent play,” Calvert head coach Doug Jones said. “They played as a team throughout the entire match [and] we lost … but boy did they play well. I couldn't be more proud of them. If they continue to play like this, we will surprise a lot of people.”
