The Indians improved to 3 – 2 overall on the season and 1 – 0 in league play.
Hillsboro was led by Marshall Ward who recorded a hat-trick for the Indians. The other goal for the Highland County crew came courtesy of Payton Bell who also had an assist in the game.
Logan Crafton and Spencer Rudy both recorded assists for the Indians on the night.
The play in goal for Hillsboro was top notch as Jason Lovely recorded five saves in the first half before being replaced by Joe Rudy at the start of the second half. J. Rudy had seven saves for the Indians after taking over for Lovely.
Weber was pleased with the play of his team. “We played well overall and had a good amount of shots on goal. I’m excited for the boys notching their first league win.”
