JAYâWith the crowd already warmed up from the girls big win, the Falcon boys were able to ride the back of their stand-out goaltender all the way to the 3-0 win over Champlain Valley Union.
"Chris Bronson was amazing tonight," said assistant captain Nate Stewart, âEverything (he did) was just perfect. He covered us many, many times and definitely kept us in it.â
