The score of the Bingham Miners vs Skyline Eagles game is not reflective of the excellent defensive play offered by both teams. From start to finish it was hard hitting, turnover causing, pain-inflicting play. Bingham came out on top 13-11, but Skyline did not make it easy.
Bingham came out determined to put the pain of their last loss behind them. The first faceoff set the tone with both teams fighting for possession. Bingham came out on top and Josh Croall drew first blood when he took a pass from Brigham Jewkes and put the ball in the net for a rare early first quarter goal for the Miners. After another faceoff and possession battle between Bingham’s James Packer and Skyline’s Ian Kadish, the Miners’ Matt Anderson streaked down field, looked to pass, but then dumped the ball into the goal taking the Eagles by surprise. Skyline tried to gain its composure, but Bingham again gained possession and Jordan Brough offered up his first goal on a fast break with an assist by Talen Little. It looked like Bingham was going to avenge its embarrassing loss to Waterford at the expense of Skyline. Defense on both sides ground it out causing turnovers with goalies Scott Bronson and Oliver Martin making great saves. The Eagles Lane Kadish decided to take the game into his own hands winning the faceoff and then weaving through the Miner defense notching his first goal unassisted. Skyline gained a little momentum and Chris Williams picked up a ground ball and then found his way to an unassisted goal as well. It was 3-2 and Bingham had lost a little steam, but they didn’t lose their mojo. Dallin Bentley scored off a quick pass from Croall. Skyline was able to achieve a two minute, non-releasable, man-up opportunity, but excellent play by Miners’ defensive players Jake Saenz, Bradin Wilson and Hayden Peterson with help from middie Cody Elmen held the Eagles scoreless. At the end of one quarter is was Bingham 4, Skyline 2. Read More
