Lambert Tops Milton 17-5, Improves 3-1 Overall And 2-0 In Area Play
On Saturday, the Lambert Longhorns traveled to take on the Milton Eagles in an area match up as the Longhorns looked to pick up their second area win of season. The Longhorns wasted no time taking command of the match as they jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the first period. The Lambert defense continued to shut the Milton offense down in the second period of play as they only allowed the Eagles one goal in the period while adding four more of their own to take a 10-2 lead at the half.
The third quarter would be a much more competitive one for the Eagles despite being outscored 3-2 in the period, Milton appeared to slow the Longhorns’ offense down. However, Lambert would quickly get back on the offensive attack as they would outscore Milton 4-1 in the final period of play as they picked up the 17-5 win, improving to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in area play. “The biggest thing is we’re taking it one game at a time and we’re improving every game. That’s what we want to do,” Lambert coach Timmy Geran said after Saturday’s win. “We want to be the best team in May,” Geran added.
Senior captain, Brent Starcher echoed Geran’s statements, stressing that the goal for the Longhorns is to be “the last team practicing every week and I think as we go through the weeks, we’re working more and more as a team, getting better every day,” Starcher said.
