They have three league games remaining. Goalie Chris Cudney continues to stop 75 percent of shots on goal, making him one of the toughest goalies to shoot on in the Northern California Junior Lacrosse league. The JV middies have been led by Nathan Whitfield with excellent play by Keegan Banks and Cole Thompson. Tim Bonnington continues his dominance in faceoffs winning over 80 percent. Daniel Whitfield is leading the attacks by averaging two goals and 1.5 assists a game, while Garret Slatter is putting up several multiple goals and assists per game. “Most impressive about this team is the ball movement and having more than six players scoring in every game while more than 60 percent of the team goals are assisted,” said coach Ron Whitfield. ?
