BIG FIRST HALF LIFTS ST. PETERSBURG; 127-95
In the season’s highest-scoring match to date, the Bloods – propelled by veteran midfielder and former Sandringham trainee Jason Blackbourn, promising rookie tall Jesse Hayes and the always-steady Aaron Crittenden and Austen Kugler – posted a devastating 6.5 onslaught in a furious fifteen minutes that seemingly all but decided the affair.
Philadelphia-region natives Dustin Jones, Pat Bilder and Dionne Jones regrouped at the big break, however, closing to within ten points early in the final stanza.
The aggressive play in midfield created opportunities for the Green, with Kyle Roun, Kenneth Scheidt and David Senko all notching multiple majors in the second half.
A Blackbourn supergoal and a series of neutralizing 70-yard clearances from Jake Keglor as the clock became a factor iced the affair.
The Kangas (2-0) will have an opportunity to respond Saturday, February 10, when they host Pasco BlackDog in an 11 AM start at Crescent Lake.
