    Corey McAndrew had a 12-save shutout and 10 Dallas players got involved in the scoring when the Mountaineers routed host Lake-Lehman, 15-0, Monday in a Wyoming Valley Conference game that also served as the Old Stick Game between Back Mountain rivals.

    McAndrew made seven of his saves in the second quarter to help Dallas open a 9-0 halftime lead.

    Stone Mannello led the scoring with three goals and an assist.

    “He definitely has been stepping up his game the last few games,” Dallas coach Jared Hunt said of Mannello, who last week had a hat trick, including the overtime game-winner against Wyoming Seminary.

    T.J. Herron had a goal and assisted on four others.

    “He’s a threat to score and a threat to set everybody else up,” Hunt said. “He’s our top point-getter on attack right now.”

    Dallas took control of the game early and got two goals each from Dave Lipinski, Nick Solinsky and Ryan Trum. Lipinski also had an assist.

    “I was pretty satisfied with how we played after the first quarter,” Hunt said. “We were coming off a tough loss against Crestwood Saturday so we were trying to gear back up.”

    Nick Ziemba added a goal and an assist.
