In what has to be one of the teams’ most competitive opponents, the Little Hoyas played in Bears in the Bears’ Den. Momentum switched back and forth with the end result a tie.

The home team (due to an odd scheduling quirk, GP was designated to make the last line shifts) scored first with a big slap shot from the point and on the way to the nets it was redirected past Landon goalie, Jack Concannon at 5:24. For this period, the Little Hoyas outshot the Bears 6 to 4.

Early in the second stanza, the Bears were penalized for 2 minutes. While short-handed the visitors scored on a Patrick Gilles assist to Tommy Crittenberger @ 13:44. The score did not remain tied long as the short-handed goal seemed to energize the Landon team; plus, it should be noted that the stands were filled with many Landon boys, parents and friends.

A little more than a minute later, JACOB RUTENBERG winning a face-off to Brian Jordan who set up ADITYA KRISHNAN (in all caps since both are corrections; sorry;I APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL NOTES ABOUT CORRECTIONS)  for a goal @ 11:51. That momentum was sustained when Colton Rupp circled from the corner and as several Little Hoyas converged on him, the senior captain picked a corner @ 8:38.

The refs called another penalty on the Bears, but of no scoring benefit to the home team. Coincidental minors against both teams opened up the ice and the smooth skating Bears capitalized with a Crittenberger to Ben Gilbert to Wellington goal @ 0:55.1.

It is hockey accepted wisdom that the hardest lead to hold is +3 and that adage proved true unfortunately. The Little Hoyas scored at 12:44, 7:00 and 0:15.8 with 6 skaters on the ice.

A well-played game in which sound play in the Bears’ nets was tabulated with 25 saves by Jack Concannon.
