Cats win on Senior night… Fall to St. Francis

by Coach Elliott on January 12, 2011

The Wildcats split a pair of games over this past weekend to take their overall record to 11-6-2 and 4-1 in the Northwest Hockey Conference. On Friday night the Cats overwhelmed Centerville 6-0 but fell Saturday in league play to St. Francis 5-2.

On Friday night the Cats honored their Seniors as Kevin Klever and Austin Wolf joined the lineup. They also peppered the Elks net with 58 shots, 31 in the 2nd period, as they cruised to a rather easy 6 to 0 win. Junior Phil Bowles needed to make just 13 saves to register his 8th win of the season and 4th shutout. Nolan Culver registered a pair of goals and Brent Easton scored his 1st of the season. Zack Felser, Aaron Booth and Drew Korn also scored for the Cats.

The next evening the Cats took on St. Francis with 1st place in the NHC on the line. The Cats had won the previous game in a great battle 3 to 2. This game had much of the same. Both teams played great as they traded blows like a couple of heavyweight fighters. Shots were even as the teams took turns seizing the games momentum. However, the Knights made better of their scoring opportunities and hit the empty net to seal the win 5 to 2. Drew Crandall and Culver were able to keep the game close and Austin Gryca played well in net stopping many quality scoring opportunities from the Knights, but it was not meant to be for the Cats on this night. The lose drops the Cats into a 1st place tie with St. Francis at 4-1 in the league. Both teams will face B.G., SJJ and Findlay over the final few weeks to determine a regular season league champ and 1st seed for the Red division league playoff at the end of the regular season.

This weekednd the Cats travel to Pittsburgh for the Bethel Park MLK Tournament.
