In a display of overly aggressive play on Saturday, Burke fought hard against Valley for a spot in Friday night's semi finals. Emotions were high on the Burke side and they knew they were the underdogs. They gave it their all.
Fortunately Valley stepped up their games as well. The Tigers executed the offense brilliantly at times which led to three players with hat tricks. Including eight grader Crites, who opened the scoring for the Tigers and scored his first hatrick of the season. Did I mention Crites' second goal was so Gary Gait that ole G22 would have shed a tear? A thing of beauty.
Valley won 11-7 despite getting lazy late and advances to the semifinals Friday night.
