The 2003-born sniper scored once and assisted a teammate on Friday, then put up another goal and two more helpers on Saturday. O’Neal’s five points rank tied for fifth among NA3HL skaters after week one.

The 2002-born forward lit up the scoresheet with a pair of assists before scoring the game-winning goal on Friday, then nabbed another two tallies — including another game-deciding goal — in Saturday’s rematch victory.
