Early in Thursday afternoon's game against Oliver Springs at Jane Terry Hoffman Field, Oneida saw a well-placed shot sail a little tall and over the goal.

That was not an indicator of things to come.

In a game that saw the Indians dominate the action and attempt numerous shots on goal, Oneida scored early and often in the first half to build a 5-0 advantage in the first half, then coasted to a 6-0 win over the visiting Bobcats.

Nathaniel Furrer scored early to get the scoring started for the Indians. He would later score again, while Matt Phillips also pitched in two first half goals as the Indians cruised to the big lead early.

Luca Gregori also scored to round out Oneida's first half scoring.

The Indians added one more score in the second half, with Colton Grey scoring on an assist by Zac Patton.

On the opposite end of the field, Alex Bowling went the entire 90 minutes at the goal to turn away Oliver Springs' scoring opportunities and help the Indians to the shutout.
