Falcons hockey team: undefeated champions
The Scripps Ranch High School roller hockey team completed an incredible undefeated season by beating Rancho Bernardo High 9-6 to win the 2019 CIF Metro Conference Championship on March 4.
The game against Rancho Bernardo provided plenty of excitement. It was just what anyone would expect in a championship game. Both teams obviously wanted to win, but the Scripps Ranch players not only had the talent to win, but also the unbeatable will to bring about a hard-fought victory.
Rancho Bernardo was the first to score. But that didn’t faze the Falcons. They stayed focused and stuck to their game plan. At the end of the second period the game was tied 6-6.
Scripps Ranch owned the third period, not allowing Rancho Bernardo to score at all, with the game ending 9-6.
While an MVP was not named, Captain Cody Sherman was a standout with a hat trick and two assists. However, the credit can be given to the entire team that played well together and supported each other the entire season.
With an 18-0 season, the Falcons showed great chemistry between the players and coaches. Cody Sherman is the only senior on the team, which means this chemistry is going to carry over into the next season.
