COLMAR >> Coming into the season, Central Bucks West knew it had a solid first line.
The rest has been an explosive surprise.
“We knew we had that first line. There are a lot of goal scorers on there. But our second line is doing a good job moving the puck,” Bucks coach Dave Baun said. “They go to the net and when you go to the net, you score a lot of goals.”
CB West did just that on Thursday night at Hatfield Ice, pulling away from William Tennent for an 11-3 victory.
“We had been struggling with our starts a little bit,” said West’s Christopher Trefz, who scored a pair of first-period goals. “The past couple games, we got down a few times. But we’ve always bounced back. I think we’re a persistent team. We’ve had big changes all up and down the lineup. I think our new kids are really starting to buy into the system.”
The Bucks battled to a 2-2 tie at the end of the first period and then things really started to connect.
West got goals from seven different players. ‘
“We’re looking at the process,” Baun said. “We think if we play well, it’ll help us at the end of the season. So we’re looking at the process of how we play. We figure if we play well, the results will come.”
Daniel Poliak had a hat trick for the Bucks, and Trefz and Samuel Poliak each scored twice. Evan Hee, Jacob Lang, William V. Loughnane and Keith Orlando added to the scoring frenzy for West.
“When you look at our scoring, at the beginning of the year, it was all our top line,” Trefz said. “But now it’s starting to even out a little bit. The new kids are really starting to buy into the system. I think that’s big and we’re really happy with them.”
Mason McKeever and Zachary Devor each scored for the Panthers in the first period and Justin Carrelli scored late. The Bucks broke a 2-2 tie in the second period and controlled things from there.
“It was a physical game. We weren’t really used to that and I like how we responded,” Trefz said.
