Soud­er­ton Area’s of­fense was strong early and then sim­ply over­whelm­ing, as the In­di­ans earned a 10-1 vic­tory over Ne­shaminy in a Sub­ur­ban High School Hockey ieague non-di­vi­sion game at Hat­field Ice Thurs­day night.

Daniel Rock led the Big Red with four goals and Bran­non Evans added a pair in what was a dom­i­nant of­fen­sive per­for­mance.

“We were even miss­ing some kids tonight, and we just came out and played our hearts out, like we should,” said cap­tain Dy­lan Manto, who added a third-pe­riod goal for first-place Soud­er­ton. “Danny Rock had some great plays for us tonight, and we were work­ing pretty well to­gether.”

Alex Polit­sky, Evans and Rock all scored first-pe­riod goals to put Soud­er­ton firmly ahead, 3-0.

“We hadn’t played well the last two games and this is some­thing we were aim­ing to do - come out fast, come out hard,” Big Red coach Matt Mon­tagna said. “Dump the puck and go get ‘em. We were chas­ing hockey pucks. That’s all we wanted them to do. Don’t dance around, just

The Big Red’s on­slaught in­cluded an amaz­ing 59 shots on goal.

“They did not stop,” Mon­tagna said of his team. “They had two tough losses (af­ter a 4-0 start), games they were ca­pa­ble of win­ning, and I think they wanted to make amends for it tonight.”

Ed DiCre­cio had a busy night in net for Ne­shaminy (2-S), mak­ing 49 saves while Soud­er­ton new­comer Bryce McMichael stopped 11 of the 12 shots he faced.

“He’s hang­ing in there, man,” Mon­tagna said hap­pily.

Soud­er­ton would be thrilled to keep giv­ing the young­ster leads like the one he had Thurs­day. Af­ter Rock scored again in the sec­ond pe­riod to make it 4-0, the In­di­ans more than dou­bled their lead in the third.

The Big Red scored from just about ev­ery­where, be­gin­ning with Evans’ sec­ond goal, this one off the power play, to make it 5-0. Af­ter Eric Gra­ham broke the shutout for the Red­skins, Rock, Clay Anders, Chris Malanga, Manto and Rock again all put shots away to com­plete the rout.

“We want to get back on a roll,” Manto said.
