The top-seeded Warriors outscored Eden 10-3 in the first period and won what is believed to be their first championship since 2008 with a 16-11 win at Veterans Memorial Park.

Salamanca lost in the 2019 final to Eden as the Raiders scored 12 of the game’s last 15 goals after the sides were tied at 3-3.

The Warriors received a pair of seven-point games from Amos Whitcomb and Nate Kettle. Whitcomb scored five times, while Kettle had three goals to go with four assists.

“It was exciting,” Salamanca assistant coach Larry Wheeler said. “We told the boys we had to swing out the door this time because we’ve had slow starts in the season and Amos Whitcomb has just taken over.”

Kelvin George scored three times, while Tre Turner had two goals and an assist. Carson Redeye scored a goal and an assist for Salamanca (11-2). Goalkeeper Jarod White made 20 saves for the winners.

“It was our year, and we dedicated the season to seniors who didn’t have a season in 2020,” Wheeler said.

Wyatt Dibble had four goals and three assists for second seed Eden (10-5).

The Flames scored seven goals in the second half to overturn a 4-1 halftime deficit.
