Wells led 2-1 at half, but goals from Frick, Johnson and Mason Ward pulled them even farther ahead of the Orange.

“Indian Lake/Long Lake was bouncing back from a double-digit defeat, and the team played with intensity,” Indian Lake/Long Lake coach Ben Conboy said. “Wells was equal to it, finding an early lead, not allowing IL/LL’s two-goal comeback to weaken their spirits and then getting hot down the stretch to capitalize on multiple opportunities, which put the game out of reach.”

The Indians’ Tyler Bolebruch also tallied at the 24:27 mark of the first half.

Aidan Atwell registered a goal in each half for the Orange.

Devon Millington responded for Johnsburg/Minerva with a ball in the back of the net from Evan Wing.
