The Bruins’ win was the fifth in a row against Foothill. Wilson beat Foothill (14-5) in the S&R Sports Cup Tournament a couple weeks ago and beat the team three times last season, including in the CIF Southern Section Division I Finals. On Tuesday, Foothill jumped out to a 3-2 lead, but the teams were tied at 6 at halftime Charles Wright, who created three man-up opportunities, two of which resulted in penalty shots for Wilson, scored three goals, and Scott LaBounty scored twice and Scott Huntley added a goal of his own for the Bruins, who moved up to No. 2 in the CIF-SS Division I poll. “I think we just had too many turnovers,” Foothill coach Jim Brumm said. “They do a really good job of capitalizing when you do.” “We dropped off JW. He is a strong player,” Wilson senior attacker Kyle Wootten said. “We just stuck to our game plan and played hard all four quarters and came out with a win. We have been working on our counter all week. The counterattack is what we’ve been lacking.” Sagehorn scored one of his four goals on a power play 5:51 into the fourth quarter to give Wilson (15-3) a 10-8 lead. The return of Matt Sagehorn and Anthony Artukovich from competing with the U.S. junior national team in Argentina went well for Wilson High on Tuesday night at Tustin High. The Bruins’ box defense contained the Knights’ JW Krumphloz, their pressure on the perimeter forced quite a few turnovers, and the team converted power-play opportunities, penalty shots and scored off the counterattack and in the post to edge Foothill, 10-9. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
