coun­ter­part, Bucs goalie Josh Chaney (11 saves), coun­tered with a save at the other end. Kra­tovil then scored from in front of the crease off a pass from Smith to make it 6-0 with 6:42 left in the half.

Jake Miller fi­nally got the Lions on the score­board with 1:09 re­main­ing in the half. He pumped in a low left­handed shot off a pass from Chris Con­nor for a 6-1 game.

Sticher fired in an un­der­hand shot on a fast-break to put the Bucs ahead 7-1, 54 sec­onds into the sec­ond half. Only two goals were scored in the third quar­ter, the other a tally by Queen Anne’s Bran­don Hick­man on a sprint rush after he scooped a ground ball.

The scor­ing opened in the fourth quar­ter with eight goals to­tal. The Lions (8-3, 3-1) closed within 9-5, with 4:01 to play when Paul Gill cir­cled from be­hind the net and scored with a left-han­der. But that would end their scor­ing, and the Bucs coun­tered just 16 sec­onds later. Doyle ri­fled in a shot off a pass from Lewis to make it 10-5 with 3:45 re­main­ing.

Smith net­ted a high shot at 2:23 and Mooney tal­lied off a re­bound with a one-handed be­hind-the-back shot to fin­ish the scor­ing at 1:30.

“I think we’re a pretty bal­anced team,” Jones said. “We have a lot of guys who can be dan­ger­ous with the ball and we do a good job of shar­ing it. When we run our ‘O’ any of the six guys play­ing ‘O’ can score.” Fol­low me on Twit­ter @csknauss / email me at ck­nauss@star­dem.com
