Teddy Kluesner and Aidan Lenz also found the back of the net for Edgewood, while Homestead picked up goals from Joey Buenz and Pierce Stastney.
Game 4 Appleton United 2 Arrowhead 1 SO
Quite possibly the performance of the Admirals Cup this year comes courtesy of Appleton United goalie Gage Olson, who stopped an amazing 65 shots during regulation and overtime and another seven in the shoot-out to earn the victory. Arrowhead's Casey Sodolski scored the first goal of the game, but that was matched late in the second by AU's Cole McCabe. The only player to score in the shoot-out was Appleton's Trevor Tomoda and that, coupled with Olson's play in net, was enough to give them the victory.
