Cats win 2 move into 2nd place!

by Coach Elliott on February 8, 2010

The Wildcats played 2 NHC games over the weekend winning both against Southview and Bowling Green to move into 2nd place in league play with 1 weekend left. St. Francis with 15 points leads conference play followed by the Cats at 14 and then SJJ with 13.  Northview needs a win over St. Johns on Saturday to claim at least a second place finish in league play. There remains a possibilty of a league title with a win and help from SJJ and Findlay against St. Francis. A 1st or 2nd place finish would run Northview’s streak to 6 straight years of finishing in either 1st or 2nd in the NHC red division.

This past weekend the Cats claimed the mayors cup over Southview with a 6-4 win on Friday and avenged an earlier loss to BG with a 2-1 win on the road Sunday. In Fridays game the Cats started slow giving up an early goals to SV before Anthony Holley evened the score at 1. Mark Hall scored on the powerplay to give the Cats their first lead. The lead was short lived as the Cougars hit for 2 goals in the 2nd to take a 3-2 lead mid-way through the game. Aaron Booth Tied the game at the end of the 2nd to give the Cats some much needed momentum.  Northview would take control of the game with a 3 goal outburst in a 3 minute span of the 3rd. Tyler Harding finished off a nice pass from Zach Felser, and Defensmen Graham Kelsey and Jordan Jones pushed the lead to 6-3.  Southview would add a late goal to close the scoring out in a 6-4 win.

Sunday the Cats jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead before hanging on to deafeat Bowling green 2-1. Felser opened the scoring on a breakaway goal off a nice play from Kelsey and Dalton Carter.  Nolan Culver added a goal near the end of the first to make it 2-0 after 1. The score remained that way until the 5 minute mark of the 3rd when the Bobcats closed to within 1 on a power play goal.  Northview held off BG for the rest of the game killing off another powerplay late for the final.

The wins pushed the Cats overall record to 15-8-3 and 7-2 in league play. Northview will wrap up regular season play this Saturday at 7 with the Titans of St. Johns @ Tam-o-Shanter.
