Corey Mackin tallied six points in four games in a perfect 4-0 week for Allen. He had three goals and three assists including the game winner on Sunday.
“It was a good week for us as a team,” noted Mackin “We had everyone doing their part and contributing. I feel like we really played together this week. It was fun to be a part of. We just have to make sure we don’t take any steps back.”
