Landon Hockey 2 Archbishop Spalding 2

The Cavaliers started the game with aggressive, physical play. The visitor skaters were first to the puck all too frequently. Their fore-checking resulted in two goals, at 5:13 and 3:21. The Bears played their game and were able to outshoot the AS skaters 7 to 6 with Sean O’Brien stopping 4 of the opponents’ pucks.

In this segment the referees determined that the Cavalier hits were inappropriate, perhaps in response to a hit in which a Bear was flattened on the ice and incurred an injury requiring his transport by ambulance to a hospital (hopefully the player is OK). The next AS hit resulted in a 2 minute and ten minute penalty against one of their players. During that advantage the Bears quickly moved the puck from Jack Barton on the right blue line to Colton Rupp positioned low on the right from which he quickly roofed the puck @ 7:31. The visitors evidently did not get the referees’ message and within a minute one of their players was hit with a 5 minute penalty.  This time Jack teed up a shot at the point and blasted it toward the AS goal. There Ben Gilbert redirected it for the Bears’ second Power Play and tying goal @ 1:49.

The last fifteen minutes were better played and with fewer penalties. There were no scores. The Bears outshot the Cavaliers whose goalie has a 1.92 GA average and stopped many good Landon chances. As usual, the home team defense involved al six skaters on the ice.
