Landon Hockey 2 St. Albans 0

Ft. Dupont was built by the North in the civil war to defend the city of Washington. On Friday night, in front of a number of StA students, the Bears team defended its nets to beat St. Albans 2-0.

From the first to the last period, Landon controlled the puck and won most of the 1v1 chances. They outshot their opponents 35-10 with most of the home team’s opportunities against Jack Concannon (10 saves) during their power plays. The Bear D (Trevor Wolf, Alex Norwinski, Brian Jordan, Ben Gilbert and Jacob Ruttenberg) rarely allowed the Bulldogs to break out and dominated the neutral zone.

The good news for the home team was their goalie who stopped 33 shots by Landon. Trevor Wolf beat the StA goalie on a beautiful shot at the end of a breakaway. The goal was tallied at 8:02 of the last period.

At 2:56 remaining, the Bulldogs went on a power play and the Bear PK played aggressively and smartly, frustrating the StA team . Then the StA coach pulled his goalie. The 4 (and at 0:56- 5) Bears were able to best the 6 Bulldog skaters. As the clocked moved towards the end of the game, Tommy Crittenberger broke from his defensive blue line towards the empty net. As the Alternate Captain prepared to shoot without an opponent between him and an empty net, a home defender pulled him down. Under league rules, rather than a penalty shot, Crittenberger was awarded a goal @ 0:29.5.

The Bears, as throughout much if the game, controlled the puck for the remaining seconds. VICTORY

Great game; the Bears are on a roll. Bullis on Monday @ the Bears’ Den
