Walpole, MA - Despite taking the first game of the weekend, the Express’ successful seven-game streak was broken by the Valley Jr. Warriors on Sunday.
Game 1: East Coast Wizards
Saturday night the Walpole Express faced off against a speedy East Coast Wizards club. The Express started slowly until Rudy Carson scored a pretty goal off a Frankie Cefalu and Jeremy Carignan passing play. The game remained fast-paced and physical throughout as the Express battled to a 4-1 victory. Once again, Connor Rodericks stood tall in net stopping 35 of 36 shots to improve his record to 4-0 on the season.
