MB JV-9 defeated visiting St. Paul’s School (Covington, LA) 8-3 on a bright and sunny Sunday morning at Mountain Brook High School.  Wearing their new white uniforms, the score suggested the Spartans and the Wolves were engaged in a tight 4-3 contest through three quarters but the Brookies dominated play and controlled the ball for long stretches without scoring.  This changed in the fourth quarter as Mountain Brook’s defense took over by holding SP scoreless while the offense netted four goals to put the game away. 

The Brookies’ motion offense continued to improve with Mountain Brook outshooting St. Paul’s by a factor of more than two to one, and, again, four of the eight goals scored were assisted.  Kemper “Special K” Sanders took his season tally to 8 goals with 4 goals on the day.  Taylor “Speed Racer” Carson and BamaLax Star Crawford “Rolex” Tindle each recorded 3 points with 1 goal and 2 assists in the game.  Benjamin Rosenthal opened up his scoring account with a soft shot that cascaded into the net.  Elijah “Fear The Turtle” Welman broke open the contest in the fourth quarter with a nifty dodge and shoot from his customary left side which careened nicely into the right side of the net that set the stage for three more goals that quarter. 

Mountain Brook’s defense continued its fine run of form by shutting out St. Paul’s in the fourth quarter.  The Brookies have given up only one goal in the fourth quarter of all three games.  BamaLax star David Favrot, Porter “Porterhouse” Williamson, BamaLax star and Brine All-American Patrick Doud along with the talisman of the defense, Goalie Thomas Byrne, consistently stifled the physically larger and quicker SP attackmen.  Goalie Fuller “The Amish Boy” Crocker made key stops in the second and third quarters when he was called upon to play after a penalty by Byrne.  Malcolm Luttrell made his debut for Mountain Brook and played significant minutes with James Pugh and Christopher Jones on defense.  The man-down defensive unit of Favrot, Williamson, Doud, Pugh, Jones, and Charles Albert Fell IV again showed their mettle by only allowing one goal in nine opportunities.  Surprisingly, Fell did not have a single penalty.

Mountain Brook travels to north Alabama to play Madison County powerhouse Bob Jones High School in their next GBYLA game.
