It wasn't until the second period that Beaver began scoring goal after goal. What started at the 55th minute didn't end until the 89th minute, which happened to be five goals for New Kensington's opponent.
In total, New Kensington tallied up ten shots, three of which were kicked by Nate Andrews (Pittsburgh, Pa./ Sierra Catholic), and Joshua Zakrzewski (Finleyville, Pa./ Ringgold) saved nine of Beaver's.
