CENTURY 5, POCATELLO 0
The Century boys turned it on in the second half against Pocatello, scoring all five of their goals after halftime for a blowout win at Century.
Aidan Hofeldt scored twice for the Diamondbacks, and Luke Esplin, Brayden Stouse and Shaun Abassi each added one.

In the second half, we were a little wasteful in front in front of net. We probably should have hung eight or nine on them.”
