DeKALB – The speed of Barbs’ forward Mauro Talamantes was on full display Tuesday night as DeKalb throttled the Kaneland Knights, 5-1.
“This feels like an important win,” DeKalb coach Brent McIntosh said. “The No. 1 point in our dressing room before the game was to put in what we call a results-driven performance. We couldn’t afford a second loss in conference this early.”
Talamantes answered the challenge from his coach by scoring three goals for the Barbs (6-2-1,1-1) two of which came in the first half to put the Knights in an early hole.
