Rosecrans 2 – Coshocton 7
At first, this pivotal ECOL matchup appeared to be close. A goal ten minutes into the contest by Coshocton senior Lucas Dunlap put the Redskins in front, but it didn’t last long.
Rosecrans’ Logan Lazar responded with a goal 30 seconds later, but the Bishops were unable to keep up with Coshocton’s pressure in a 7-2 loss.
Dunlap followed his initial score with two others, both in the second half. He was joined in the scoring column by fellow classmate Evan Johnson.
Playing in their final game at Kids America, the senior duo accounted for all seven CHS goals in the win. Johnson’s first tally came about ten minutes before halftime. He kept the pressure on, connecting for three scores in the span of a little more than ten minutes in the second frame for the Skins.
His four goal performance brings his season total, the best in the East District, to 24.
