ROCKVILLE – Ten different players scored for Wootton in Tuesday’s 17-4 win over visiting Springbrook but the Patriots received a hat trick from a brother act.
Wootton senior Myles Romm and freshman Mase Romm each scored three goals to lead the Patriots to victory on Senior Night.
“They’re both real good players,” said Wootton head coach Colin Thomson. “They work well together but they also work well with the other guys.”
The win helped the Patriots improve to 7-5 while Springbrook dropped to 7-3.
“It feels great,” said Myles Romm. “We needed the win to really boost our confidence. It’s great that we got the good win, we got everyone to play which has kind of been a problem this year so everyone is kind of feeling good right now.”
Besides the brothers Romm, Wootton also received goals from Isaac Lish (two goals), Joe Montesano (two goals), Jack Wright, Sam Ellis, Brad Verdin (two goals), Brett Rudden, Max Child and Jake Ledner.
Romm, a four-year varsity performer at Wootton, said he enjoys competing alongside his kid brother.
“It’s awesome,” he said. “It really is. We’ve never played [together] before. I’m a couple years older than him so we’ve been on different teams ever since. He’s learning from me, I’m learning from him. It’s just been awesome to play together.”
Meanwhile, the freshman standout said the feeling was mutual playing alongside his big brother.
“It’s awesome,” said Mason Romm. “It’s incredible, I can’t even explain it. He’s helped me on and off the field.”
