Robby Gunderson netted four times last Friday, helping CKS Warta to an 8:2 win over Berber Stars in the Champions Division. Vikings kept pace with the leaders, trouncing Czarny Dunajec 8:0. Warta lead Vikings by one point as the season enters the home stretch.
Warta exacted revenge over the Stars, who had won the first meeting between the teams 4:2. A full-strength Warta side came prepared and focused, surging to a 4:0 lead by halftime.
Will Butler opened the scoring, driving a strong shot through traffic past the Stars goalkeeper. Gunderson scored twice to make it 3:0, and then Juan de la Cruz added the fourth on a power play.
Warta kept pushing after the break, leading 5:0 after Gunderson's third tally. The Stars responded through Michael Mendoza, but David Aranda's strike made it 6:1. Daniel Fernandez brought the Stars to within 6:2, but Gunderson and Samir Ghiasi put the result to bed with two goals at the end.
