deOndarza scored the game-winner with 11:09 left in the second half off a Tanner Conners assist.

The keepers stood strong the rest of the way with the Chiefs' Branden Ashley making 10 saves and the Hornets' Ryan Taylor turning away 11 shots.

Aiden Pearl accounted for both of Seton Catholic's goals, and Gavin Bobbie turned away nine shots for the Knights.
"The boys are getting better each time out," Seton Catholic coach Charlie Gay said. "We need to reduce the the amount of time that we let up and need to continue with applying pressure. That’s where Boquet Valley did a good job of capitalizing on when we would let up or relax. They’re a good fundamental team and played well the entire game.
"We are improving each time out. Aiden Pearl played a great game for us tonight from start to finish as did Oakley Buehler for them. We’re very young, and lack of experience shows. But as time goes on, that too will improve."
