The second half of a weekend swing in New Jersey was a chance to see how the L/A Fighting Spirit would bounce back from a loss.

Just fine, thanks.

Led by Colby Siering’s hat trick, the Fighting Spirit rebounded from their initial defeat of the season with a convincing 8-2 win Sunday afternoon over Skylands.

L/A (9-1-0-0) dropped a 6-0 verdict Saturday night to Jersey Shore in a battle of the final two undefeated teams in the NA3EHL.

Siering scored back-to-back goals in the third period to start a string of five unanswered tallies that put away the win. He lit the lamp at 2:13 and again at 5:38.

The goals were Siering’s sixth and seventh of the season. He also gave L/A a 2-0 lead with a second-period score.
