Jason Thompson/Gulf Breeze News Jasper Bowles lets a shot fly in GBHS’ 22-2 win at PHS Saturday, completing a Feb. 22 suspended game. Jason Thompson/Gulf Breeze News The Gulf Breeze boys lacrosse team scored 10 unanswered goals on Saturday as they beat PHS 22- 2 in a game that was suspended because of a transformer malfunction on Feb. 22.

The Dolphins led 12-2 last month when the power went out and PHS and couldn’t be restored. Gulf Breeze led 7- 1 after one quarter, with six different players scoring goals.

Noah Haas scored twice in the first 12 minutes, while Carter Couget, Jordan Pliska, Jake Molina, Tucker Smith and Patrick Fisher all scored once.

T.J. Caldwell, Smith and Molina all scored in the second quarter before the transformer blew. Chris Durst had a pair of assists on Feb. 22, while Couget and Haas both had one.

Molina and Haas both scored before the second quarter ended Saturday, with GBHS up 14-2.

The Dolphins tacked on four more in the third quarter, courtesy of Pliska, Couget, Nick Daly and Molina.
