“It was a great game to end a good first half of the season,” Warren Central coach Greg Head said. “We’re getting some great play out of some young players.”

In the girls’ game, Layken Stockstill made 22 saves in goal but Brandon beat Warren Central 4-0.
Jocelyn Jones scored all four goals for Brandon (10-2-1). She scored the game’s first goal at the 25-minute mark, and then three times in a seven-minute span early in the second half to finally subdue the stubborn Lady Vikes.
