Golden State Road Warriors; Kings win 3 in Frisco

4/15/12- The Sea Kings traveled eight hundred fifty-two miles, played three games in three days days, and won all three, improving their overall record to 14-0 (7-0 PCL).

"It was a long trip and it was very challenging to play three games in three days, early in the morning, but our kids did a great job of responding to the challenge," said CDM head coach G.W. Mix. "It was an honor to be invited to participate in the Langkammerer (Jerry Langhammerer Invitational hosted by St. Ignatius Prep). Too bad we didn't get to play SI, but we got some good games in and gained valuable experience and insight over the three days."

In the opening round of the event, CDM defeated Menlo Prep 15-5. Jack Ortlieb (Jr/Attack) led all scorers with three goals and four assists. Two other Sea Kings also recorded hat tricks, as Michael Keasey (Sr/Midfield) had three goals and two assists and Casey Mix (Jr/Attack) had three goals and three assists.

The Kings jumped out to a 5-1 lead at the end of the first period and added four more goals before intermission. Senior attackman Hunter Molnar recorded two unassisted goals in the first half. Jay Damon (So/Midfield) had a goal and two assists on the day, while Aaron Khosh (Sr/Midfield), Chase McElroy (Jr/Midfield) and Chris Von Der Ahe (Jr/Midfield) each scored once.

"It was a great start for us. Despite the long bus ride yesterday and the early wake-up call this morning (6:30 AM), I thought we looked pretty sharp. It was nice to also be able to get everyone an opportunity to play in the second half and rest our starting group's legs a little bit. That should help us later this weekend."

On Friday, the Sea Kings faced Marin Catholic, previously ranked sixth in northern California by LaxPower.

Behind great goaltending from senior Michael Ortlieb and first quarter goals by Jack Ortlieb (Jr/Attack), Brett Nelson (Jr/Midfield), Hunter Molnar (Sr/Attack) and Casey Mix (Jr/Attack), the Sea Kings jumped out to an early 4-1 lead and never led by less than four goals from that point forward, holding an 8-3 lead at the half and finishing off the Wildcats 10-4.

"We started off pretty well offensively, but Michael was terrific," Mix said. "He shut down almost every shot we gave up."

Ortlieb finished the day with thirteen saves and just four goals against (.764%). His brother Jack continued his impressive weekend outing, with three first-half goals.

Senior attackman Hunter Molnar had a pair of goals. Casey Mix (Jr/Attack) added a goal and two assists and Connor Canale (Sr/Midfield) recorded a goal and an assist. Todd Kitzens (Jr/Attack), Brett Nelson (Jr/Midfield) and Chris Von Der Ahe (Jr/Midfield) each had a goal. Michael Keasey (Sr/Midfield) had three assists.

Taylor Epp won fifty percent of the day's draws and added an assist. He continued to show he is one of the top face-off midfielders in the West.

In the final game of its three game northern California appearance, CDM overcame a slow start, laced with turnovers, to eventually defeat Bellarmine Prep 7-4.

"I think we were tired and it showed," Mix commented. "My hat's off to these kids. To travel this far, win three games in three days, with each one being tougher than the one before it. It's pretty remarkable."

Senior goalie Michael Ortlieb was outstanding, making nineteen saves and allowing just four goals (.826%), enabling the Sea Kings to overcome a poor day on offense and secure an important inter-sectional win.

"Michael made some unbelievable saves today. Our defense was the difference in this game. They really came to play. It's a sign of a solid team when the offense or defense bails the other one out of a bad day at the office, and that's what happened today."

With the game tied at 2-2 at halftime, Aaron Khosh (Sr/Midfield) and Michael Keasey were both on the receiving end of feeds from Casey Mix (Jr/Attack), the Kings quickly took a 4-2 lead and then held off the Bells to earn their fourteenth win of the season.

Jack Ortlieb (Jr/Attack) recorded a hat trick, senior midfielder Michael Keasey had a pair of goals and two assists and Hunter Molnar (Sr/Attack) added a goal.

"This was a solid team trip. We accomplished our goals. Now it's time to turn our focus to the balance of the regular season. We have a huge game on Tuesday."

On Tuesday, the Kings face perennial power St. Margaret's at CDM at 3:30 PM.
