The seniors led the attack for the Warriors, including Asher Smith’s all-around stat line of five goals, four steals and three assists.
Cody Schwasnick finished just behind Smith with four goals while Griffin Yamaoka, Eli Sheaffer and Kristian Main all found the back of the cage twice.

The Warriors are set to take on Thousand Oaks on the road on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
