Team Wildside defeats Team Storch'em 40-28 in the first week of MNTH Fall League

With the help of 15 goals by Wilder Freed, Team Wildside had a score fest over Team Storch'em by a score of 40-28 last night in the first week of MNTH Fall League. 

Team Wildside was no stranger to the sound of the net moving last night. Wilder Freed (15 goals), Isaac Odim (5 goals) and Sami Khemakhem (5 goals) all went off on a scoring fest. The surprise story though was the play of new comer Adam Nelson, who scored 7 goals in his first League action, leading all new comers. Team Wildside starts off the League season with a win and they will look to continue their strong offense into next week. 

Team Storch'em had great contributions from Stephan Storch (8 goals) and Josh Hetterick (8 goals) but it was the spotty defense and missed opportunities that hurt them in the loss. Team Storch'em will look to improve these categories for next week. Team Storch'em had a very hot and cold night on defense. Early on in the first half, the defense was very spotty and Team Wildside was able to find gaps and holes through Team Storch'em. In a possible glimpse to next week, Team Storch'em showed a tight and aggressive defense in the second half. Lead by the great physical play of new comer Nick Wolff and some great steals by fellow new comer Marcus Vandersanden, Team Storch'em showed a strong showing second half. We'll see if next week they can keep this momentum and get a W.  

Both team's used their back up goalies for this week, after last night both teams may need to consider taking away the "back up" and adding "Co". Dan Bellandi (Team Storch'em) and Max Leitschuh (Team Wildside) both had very strong performances in goal despite their first position on their respective teams is away from the goal. We may see them in goal again but I'm sure both of them will be happy to share the goal next week once each team's goalies come back. 

Even though the score says different, this game was competitive but of course offensive driven. Both team's will look to continue this next week.
