Seniors Josh Meier, Grant Harrison and Kamden Gilday-Dube all tallied a goal, with Gavin Schillerstrom and Franco Juarez also finding the back of the net.

Schillerstrom, Harrison and Ryan Madden recorded an assist as well.

“It was a great night,” FDSH head coach Joe Jackson said. “We controlled much of the game, had plenty of shots and played excellent defense.

“It was also great to honor our 14 seniors and their parents for all the hard work they have put in.”

Along with Meier, Harrison and Gilday-Dube, seniors Adam Pearson, Carter Delanoit, Milo Hamilton, Nathan Rethwisch, Andrew Kendall, Antonio Prates and Thornton Aljets were recognized.

“It’s a great group that really has worked hard to get better,” Jackson said. “This was a good one for them to have.”
