Caleb Brown scored four goals and Chad McOscar netted a hat trick of his own as the Comets routed CC.
Jonesville out-shot the Golden Eagles 18-9 and Comets head coach Pat Bernklau said his team took advantage of the fact CC is “young and a little light.”
He was especially pleased with the play of Brown who put into action some of the things he’s been working on in practice.
“”He and some of the other guys did a wonderful job of finishing better,” he said. “I’m proud of all the guys and the effort they put out there.”
Adam Thorp added a goal and two assists for Jonesville who is 10-4-1.
