Andrew Hyde scored three first-quarter goals to spark Grosse Pointe South to an 8-0 lead as the Blue Devils went on to win 16-5 over University Liggett on Saturday afternoon.

Andrew Wright netted three goals in the contest, and Robert Carroll scored twice in the first for South, which imporved to 7-3 this season.

"We've been working on diversifying offensively and defesively the last couple days so we have a full zone offense and defense, and that worked today," South coach Don Wolford said. 

Chase Urbach, Jack Denison each tallied a goal in the early barrrage from the Blue Deivls.

University Liggett got on the board with 32 seconds left in the first quarterby way of a Thomas Stevenson goal. After a scoreless second, Liggett struck first in the third with a James Jurcak goal to make it 8-2.

South's John Whitney stopped Liggett's momentum with his first career goal, then Hyde scored twice to put the game away for South. 

Jurcak finished with three goals for Liggett, and Nikolas Minanov closed out the scoring for South with two goals late in the fourth quarter. 

South will host L'Anse Creuse North on April 29. Liggett (2-2) will host Grosse Pointe North on May 2.
