The Vikings dominated Central Washington University 17-2 on Saturday at the Bellingham Sportsplex.
The game began quickly when a little over one minute in, Western junior Greg Parsons scored the first goal, followed quickly by a goal by freshman Aaron Hack. Five minutes later, Parsons scored another goal, giving Western a 3-0 lead. After scoring one more time in the first period, Parsons finished the game with three goals.
“I’m never happy with my performance, but I think I did alright tonight,” Parsons said. “I just need to keep my head up and pass the puck more.”
Western scored nine goals in the first period, while only allowing one goal by Central. After the break, Western came back and scored two goals in the second period. Starting out the final period, Hack scored his third goal of the game in the fifth minute.
“I had a good game and I put some goals in so it felt good to score,” Hack said.
By the end of the game, Western scored five more goals defeating Central 17-2. Coach John Dougan had no doubts.
“I expected us to dominate the game,” Dougan said, “(although) maybe not by that much.”
Western is now 2-2, and its next game is a home game Saturday, Oct. 13 against Eastern Washington University.
