MECHANICSBURG — Gavin Rallis scored nine goals to lead State College in its season-opening throttling of Mechanicsburg 14-2 Wednesday.
The Little Lions offense scored eight goals through the first three periods while the defense held the Wildcats to five shots for the game.
After a scrimmage on Saturday we realized we had to move the ball more and offensively we were able to find open men and get assisted goals, State Coach coach Jeff King said.
Sawyer Weldon scored two goals. Sam Schwab and Nick Chambers had the other tallies.
Goalie Shane Levine stopped all five Wildcat offerings. State College will play at Central Dauphin East on Tuesday.
Defensively, the fact that Mechanicsburg only generated five shots on cage is a tribute to (defensemen) Eli Seeland, Cole Schailey and Andrew Kelly, King said. Were getting off on the right foot, but we have a long ways to go.
