It was all Farmington all of the time Monday night in a one-sided 14-1 win over St. Cloud Tech at Tiger Stadium.

Eight different players scored for the winners who waltzed to their third win a row while upping their season record to 6-4.

The Tigers roared to seven unanswered goals in the opening period and by intermission were sitting on a comfortable 10-0 cushion.

Tech scored its only goal of the night in the third period but the home team netted a pair of goals in each of the final two frames to win going away.
