Bowles ties own single season shutout record helps push Cats into district final

by Coach Elliott on February 27, 2012

Goaltender Phil Bowles matched his own single season shutout record of 7 he shares with Bobby McElheney and Craig Trego in helping the Cats dispose of the Findlay Trojans 9 to 0 this past weekend and send the Cats into the district finals this Saturday night versus St. Johns.

The Cats actually came out a little slow in the 1st 3 or 4 minutes before Jacob Koback and Drew Crandall scored on a couple of fluky goals in the 4th and 5th minute to give the Cats a jump start. 1st Koback cleaned up a rebound off of the side of the net for a 1 to 0 lead and then Drew Crandall took care of a mix up between the Trojans goalie and defenseman for a 2 to 0 lead. Brady Storer and Cody Estrel would make it 4 to 0 before the end of the 1st period and the Cats would never look back. Nick Laplante scored a pair of goals in the 2nd along with single goals from freshman line-mattes Josh Koback and Ian Clement as the Cats led 8 to 0 after 2. Senior Brad Wadsworth capped off the night with his 1st career goal in the 3rd for the final margin 9 to 0. That was more than enough for Bowles. The Senior stopped all 20 shots he faced as the Cats recorded their 11th shutout of the season.

The Wildcats will face the Titans on Saturday night at 7 for the right to head down to Columbus for the state Frozen Four. Tickets are on sale at both the  High school athletic office and at Tam-o-shanter this week.
