PITSBURG — Nick Schmidt had four goals and an assist and Cannon Dakin added three assists, leading Bethel (12-2) to a convincing 8-1 victory Thursday at Franklin Monroe.

Jace Houck added a goal and three assists and Aiden Flomerfelt added three assists.

“Another typical hard-fought physical battle between Bethel and Franklin Monroe,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “Playing at FM is always tough. We practiced Wednesday to get ready for their high-line offside trap. We did not do as well as we would have liked in the first half, but in the second half we were better at attacking it. Good result when you do not play your best.”
