North prevails in Junior/Senior Showcase game

Jonathan Ruiz and Pat Curiale each scored two goals as the North defeated the South 9-2 in the Junior/Senior Showcase game played at Hollydell. After spotting the South a 1-0 lead on a goal by Eric Simone just over one minute into the game the North would score the next eight goals. Kyle Parks began the streak as he put home a pass from Ruiz right along the side of the net, Jason Spieker also assisted. That line created a lot of scoring opportunities all night. Curiale, playing with teammate Garrett Quinn would give the South the lead for good at the eight minute mark as he broke in with Quinn on a 2-on-1. Adam Seitz scored an unassisted goal thirty seconds later and the lead was 3-1.

Ruiz got his first of two on the night late in the period with Spieker and Parks getting the helpers and it was 4-1 after one period. Jordan Kreifels converted on a pass from Quinn and Curiale to give the North a 5-1 lead early in the second period. Cole Zucker and Curiale would score goals two minutes apart and the North was in complete control at 7-1. Spieker got his goal near the end of the period and the lead was 8-1. Taylor Olson would get one back for the South but Ruiz ended the scoring late in the third.

Notes: Olson received the Senior leadership Award prior to the game in his final appearance representing Clearview; Coach Walters will be hard pressed to replace his presence. Nice job by Jack Scarpinato and Bob Teti both referees assigned to the game, with not one penalty called in a fast moving game.
