Sea Kings storm Marina for 18-3 win.

 Senior midfielder Chris Von Der Ahe (3g,1a) led the initial charge as the host Sea Kings (14-2) scored the first 12 goals of the game and eventually earned an 18-3 win over visiting Marina (11-8). With the win, CDM improved to 14-2 with one game remaining in the regular season.

Less than a minute into the contest, Von Der Ahe scored the game's first goal, converting a pass from Ben Palitz (So./Midfield) with 11:18 remaining. Within a few minutes, he found fellow senior Todd Kitzens (2g,2a) to increase the Kings' lead to 2-0. Three minutes after that, Von Der Ahe took matters into his own hands, notching the Kings' third tally with an unassisted goal at the 5:19 mark.

Shortly after the ensuing face-off, sophomore defenseman Brett Greenlee scored an unassisted transition goal and CDM quickly led 4-0.

Casey Mix (Sr./Attack) and Ben Palitz (3g,1a) each scored in the last thirty seconds of the quarter to give the Sea Kings a commanding 6-0 lead as the horn sounded to end the opening stanza.

"I thought we had a number of kids step up today," said CDM head coach G.W. Mix. "I was really proud of Von, Max and Ben. They did a terrific job. We gave Max and Ben a different role to play today and they performed very well."

Casey Mix (5g,1a) scored four of the first five goals of the second quarter. Max Kline (So./Midfield) assisted on Mix's first goal, his second was unassisted on extra-man. Face-off specialist Nino Chavez (So./MIdfield) won the next face-off and buried the ball in the back of the net to give CDM a 9-0 lead. Moments later, Kitzens found Mix again. Lastly, it was Sherwin Gersten's (So./Midfield) turn to assist the senior attackman who recorded CDM's second man-up goal. Palitz scored with 4:12 remaining and the score was 12-0.

Mix's extra-man goal was one of four the Kings converted on the afternoon. CDM went 4 of 6 when they had the man advantage (.666%).

Sophomore defenseman Hugh Crance opened the second half scoring on a transition goal two minutes into the third period. Von Der Ahe earned his third goal after taking a feed from Palitz. Kitzens followed suit taking a pass from Mix and rifling it past the Marina goalie. At the end of three quarters, CDM led Marina 15-2.

"I thought our transition game was much improved today. We did a good job of getting up and out. We had two defensemen score goals which is a good indication we are pushing the ball upfield quickly."

Palitz and fellow sophomore Max Kline scored the last three goals of the day for the Kings. Palitz notched an unassisted goal at 11:19. Kline converted a feed from senior attackman Beau Goulding a few minutes later, and an unassisted goal with 2:34 on the clock. CDM took an 18-2 lead.

Sophomore goalie Hoyt Crance left the game at halftime, having recorded two saves (.666 SV %). Freshman goalie Nick Guisan replaced Crance at the half and recorded his first three varsity saves (.600 SV %).

Up next for CDM is Mater Dei (3-10), the Sea Kings third Trinity League opponent. The Monarchs visit Corona del Mar on Friday, with a 3:30 varsity game and a 5:15 JV face-off.
