CAM­BRIDGE — Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester’s Brice Bromwell scored four times and dished five as­sists Fri­day in a 13-5 vic­tory over Gun­ston.

The Vik­ings im­proved to 2-1 while Gun­ston fell to 3-3 on the young sea­son.

C-SD’s Josh Blades scored three times. Zach Lewis and Ja­cob Day­ton added two goals apiece. Da­jawan Jackson and Sammy Slacum each scored once.

“We played bet­ter as a team,” said Vik­ings head coach Steve Hur­ley. “We are a very in­ex­pe­ri­enced group be­cause we are play­ing with sopho­mores and a fresh­man on at­tack. We are just young, so we need reps.

“When you are young, you play well one day, and then you come out and you don’t play so well,” he added. “We are go­ing to have this all sea­son. This is the best we’ve played all year so far. We just got to keep build­ing on that.”

The Vik­ings took a 2-0 lead in the first quar­ter with goals by Jackson and Bromwell. Gun­ston’s Henry Pankhurst scored late in the first to cut the lead in half at 2-1.

C-SD be­gan the sec­ond quar­ter with Bromwell find­ing Blades for a goal. Bromwell in­creased the lead to 4-1 when he curled in from be­hind the net to beat the keeper. Pankhurst came right back and scored to cut the lead to 4-2 mid­way through the sec­ond.

Af­ter a se­ries of pos­ses­sions, Hur­ley called time­out for some ad­just­ments. The talk worked. With Bromwell di­rect­ing the of­fense from be­hind the net, he found a streak­ing Lewis for a goal to lead 5-2. The score be­gan a 9-0 run for the Vik­ings.

“What I re­ally liked today was how the kids re­sponded when we got in the hud­dle and talked,” Hur­ley said. “The kids did a great job of mak­ing ad­just­ments.

“It re­ally showed on the of­fen­sive side,” he added. “They ex­e­cuted ver y well. A lot of them got chances and con­verted.”

With two min­utes left in the half, Bromwell again found Lewis com­ing to the net for a goal and a 6-2 lead. Bromwell capped the first half with a be­hind-the-back goal with 17 sec­onds left for a 7-2 lead.

Gun­ston had chances to get back in the game, but C-SD sopho­more goalie De­von Doll stood strong and made 14 saves.

“He did a great job,” Hur­ley said. “He is just a sopho­more so it is about get­ting those reps in net. We were able to ex­tend the lead be­cause he played very well in goal.”

The Vik­ings scored three times in the third. Day­ton opened by win­ning the face­off and scor­ing for an 8-2 lead. Blades scored min­utes later with a rocket from the top of the box. Slacum then scored off a feed from Jackson to make it 10-2.

Blades scored his third goal to open the fourth. He found a clear lane off a pass from Shain Green. Day­ton then won the en­su­ing face­off and scored for a 12-2 lead. Bromwell’s fourth goal made it 13-2.

Gun­ston’s Luke Stehle scored three times in the clos­ing min­utes of the fourth quar­ter.
