Cats settle for Consolation win in Cleveland

by Coach Elliott on January 3, 2011

The Wildcats once again went 2 and 2 in Cleveland. This time they settle for a Consolation game win in the St. Ignatius Holiday Tournament in Brooklyn. After an opening loss to Gilmour Academy the Cats rebounded for a win over Erie McDowell. A loss to Ignatius eliminated any chances of a appearence in the finals. The Cats did defeat McDowell a 2nd time however to salvage a pair of wins in the otherwise dissapointing trip.

On Monday the Cats played Gilmour Academy. The Cats played well overall but 2 powerplay goals by Gilmour were enough to sink the Cats 2 to1. Ryan Laplante provided the lone goal for the Cats.

The Next morning the Cats took on Erie McDowell out of Pennsylvania. Nolan Culver and Tyler Harding staked the Cats to an early 2 to 0 lead. McDowell scored on the powerplay to close  to within a goal before Culver and Aaron Booth scored for a 4 to 1 lead after 2. Senior forward Nolan Culver was lost for the rest of the weekend after and unfortunate mistake by the Refs during the 2nd intermission. Ryan Laplante traded goals in the 3rd period  for the final score 5 to 2.

That Evening the Cats took on St. Ignatius. In a rematch of the state final the Cats started well however, Ignatius took advantage of a couple of miscues to grab a 2 to 0 lead after 1 and never looked back. Ryan Laplante scored for the 3rd straight game, but the Cats couldn’t find their offence as many quality scoring chances went by the way side in the 5 to 1 defeat.

The next morning the Cats again took on McDowell in the Consolation game. Phil Bowles picked up a rather easy shutout in the 3 to 0 win. Ross Roberson picked up his career first goal and Drew Korn and Zach Felser also hit for the Cats.

Northview returns to Tam-o this weekend with a pair of games. On Friday they take on Centerville at 5:30 before a showdown with St. Francis in what could decide the regular season league champion on Saturday at 7.
