FLATWOODS – East Carter’s defense contained the Russell offense last Thursday, in a 5-1 Raider victory.
Russell was credited with only six shots on goal. East goalie Trevor Cline turned away five.
The Raiders were able to put pressure on the Russell defense with long passes and then racing the Russell defenders to the ball in Russell territory.
While generating several shots, East was clinging to a 3-1 lead late in the second half.
The Raiders scored twice in the closing 10 minutes to seal their third win in four games.
Russell continues to struggle, dropping to 0-3-1 on the campaign.
Ethan Miller continues to fill up the nets for East. He had two more goals Thursday, giving him 11 on the season. He has scored in all four of East’s games.
Logan Cales also had two goals, plus an assist.
Patrick McDavid added a goal and two assists
