The first score for Medomak came via Slavick Moody, who dribbled through a trio of defenders before scoring. 

Kristian Schumann (assisted by Bruce Bossow) and Kolby Staples also collected first half goals for the hosts to push Medomak up 3-1 at the half. 

In the second half, Medomak continued to play solid offense, said Medomak coach Jackson Fortin, with great midfield play by Atticus Blue, Nevan Power, Vishal Mellor and Zan Nyguen.

The strikers continued to get shots off in the second half, Liam Belyea continued to add an aggressive attack for the Riverhawks and helped create second chance scoring opportunities, Fortin noted. 

On the defensive side of the ball, Asa Appleby, Kayden Genthner, Sebastian Smith, and Finn Kelly played well keeping the ball up front and rarely giving up any ground to the opposing offense, said Fortin. 

Schumann scored Medomak’s fourth goal of the contest in the second half. 

No information was available for Troy Howard. 

In goal, Kael Sidelinger tallied 16 saves.
