Eastern 12, Utica 6
After starting the year with four straight road tilts, Eastern opened the home portion of its schedule with a non-league game against a high-scoring Utica squad. The Eagles grabbed a 3-0 lead in the opening minutes and never looked back.
Eastern (3-2) entered the day’s competition knowing that the pressure would be on its defense to slow a Utica attack that had scored 18 times in each of its first two games. Eastern goalie Pat Groschen picked up the win with 12 solid stops, but it was the work of his poles in front that kept the Pioneer offense off balance all day. Ben Swan, Jon Pacitto, and Jordan Norris combined for 12 ground balls and six caused turnovers in the Eastern end.
Grant Ferguson led Eastern with two goals and an assist.
