A Nathaniel Furrer goal with two minutes remaining in the first half made things close — but only temporarily, as Scott quickly scored to start the second half and cruised to a 4-1 win over Oneida Friday evening.
Playing on what was a de facto neutral field at Bear Creek, the Indians and Highlanders battled with in what turned out to be a tie-breaking game in the District 4-A/AA standings as the regular season came to a close.
Miklos Obrusanszki scored off an assist by Jake Storey two minutes into the first half, followed by a Prestin Bee goal off a Kyler King assist with 10 minutes remaining in the half, as Scott went up 2-0.
Oneida answered late in the half, with Furrer's goal, to cut the deficit to 2-1 at the intermission.
The tie did not last long once the second half started. King scored off Storey's second assist of the night five minutes in, giving his team a 3-1 lead.
That was followed minutes later by Bee's second goal of the night, as the Highlanders took a 4-1 lead and then continued to play solid defense the rest of the way.
