Senior midfielder Bryan Goetz and Mark Buannic each scored four times to lead the Eastern attack.
The Eagles built an early 5-0 lead in the game, but the Seahawks had chances. Eastern goalie Jameal Hadeed (Parkland) turned away the first eight shots the guests put on the cage. Hadeed made 19 stops to collect the win in goal.
Goetz put the Eagles on the board just over two minutes into the period after Jake Pousson dug out a ground ball at the edge of the crease and pitched the ball to Marc Buannic on the wing. Buannic skipped a pass across the front of the cage, and Goetz fired an overhand shot for his fourth tally of the year and first of the day. Three minutes later Goetz returned the favor and Buannic put away his first of the year. With six minutes left in the first, Tim Lamb (Great Valley) tallied his first of three on the day on a nice roll-back move along the goal line.
The Eagles made it 4-0 on their first shot in a man-up situation. Buannic did the honors on a good skip-pass from Bryan Mizell (Strath Haven). Goetz made it 5-0 on a strong dodge down the right alley with a minute to play int he period.
