Reynolds and Fawcett each scored three goals for the Highlanders in the win over Urban. Piedmont was able to spread the offense around, with Ian Joseph, Braydon Ellis, J.D. Harrison, Jack Youkstetter, Evan Eldridge and Petty each scoring one goal. Pappas and Joe Hempeck split time in goal, with Pappas recording five saves and Hempeck two.

Petty was the star the night before against Marin Catholic, scoring four goals and adding an assist as the Highlanders came up just short. Ian Joseph had three goals, and Ellis and Fawcett each scored once. Pappas had 11 saves. Hayden Leachman led Marin Catholic with four goals.

Piedmont’s March 15 game against Novato was postponed due to a field issue.
