Aidan Larson scored late in the second overtime period to give the Judge Bulldogs a 4-3 win over the East Leopards on Wednesday night at Judge Memorial High School in Salt Lake City. The two schools, separated by just a few city blocks, played about as evenly as possible, which made for an exciting game. The game also marked the first regular season win for new Judge head Coach Chuck Gosselin who took over for long-time coach Dave Allen last summer.
Judge scored first when Ben Butcher drew the defense on a dodge from X and found Anthony Parker in the middle of the field who bounced it in. East equalized at the 2:11 mark in the first quarter on a goal by Seth McConkie. Miles Eyre gave the Bulldogs the lead in the second quarter when he found space down the alley and ripped it into the top of the net. Both goalies, Kort Johnson for East and Johnny Garlinghouse for Judge played lights out, stopping point blank shots and controlling the defenses.
