Local stars at the 2021 YMNC


On the YMNC side, Stripes used a 6-0 win over Stars to claim the gold in the U-16 division. James Callahan (Manchester, Mo.) opened the scoring 90 seconds in on a field goal. Ethan Reynolds (Moorpark, Calif.) added his name in the 11th minute. At the start of the second frame off a penalty corner, Mehtab Grewal (Somis, Calif.) sent a low backhand into the right corner. Trailing 3-0, Stars came out in the third quarter with a succession of penalty corners but were unable to convert. In 33rd minute, Callahan got his second of the game finishing a goalmouth cross. Next off a penalty corner, Grewal sent a drag just off the right post that Michael Fortini (Santa Rosa Valley, Calif.) deflected. To cap off the scoring, Luca Civetta (Key Biscayne, Fla.) scored off a penalty corner.

The Stripes team also won the U-22 division, topping Stars 3-2. After a scoreless first quarter, Stripes capitalized two minutes into the second frame off a field goal. A shot by Reuben Kruger’s (Wilmette, Ill.) tipped off a defender and Danish Singh (Phoenix, Ariz.) tapped it in off the far post. Stars found the equalizer in the 42nd minute after a quick restart was passed to Jason Garrett (Oak Park, Calif.) who found space and sent a backhand into the net. Following back-to-back penalty corners, Stars grabbed the lead in the 51st minute when Cameron Spach (Newbury Park, Calif.) tucked in the rebound off the goalkeeper. With five minutes to go, Stars’ Spach received a 5-minute yellow and Stripes wasted no time capitalizing. Wyatt Katz (Santa Rosa Valley, Calif.) used great individual skill to beat two defenders on the left baseline and scored to tie the game. Another Stars green card gave Spirit a two-athlete advantage and with two minutes to go they reclaimed the lead off a penalty corner. Henzor Motta (San Juan, Puerto Rico) beat the fly and sent it into the net for the game winner.
