Bears Hockey 0 Calvert Hall 4

As the teams warmed up on the Mount Pleasant Rick, it was clear that the Cardinals were fired up. When the first puck dropped, the deep (20 skaters), big and physical home team exploded. The Bears had problems getting the puck out of their own end of the rink, had tremendous success hitting their opponents’ shins on shots and were unable to win the 1 v.1 battles that they had in their two previous games.

At the end of the 1st 17 minutes, the home team had posted three goals. Landon put 5 SOGs and Ty Morton made 6 saves.

During minutes 27 through 44, the Bears shut out the “Cards” (Ty 4 saves) but even with the advantage of 4 minutes of PP, the visitors only had 6 SOGs.

The last period saw Landon put 9 shots on goal and Ty save 6 CH shots. Early in the period, Henry Chiperfield left the ice with an injury. Despite missing a defender, the visitors allowed only one goal, a PP. The numbers were L SOGs 6, L saves 9.

It is hard to conceive that this Calvert Hall team had lost to DeMatha and St. Mary’s Ryken; perhaps the Cardinals roster was depleted due to outside commitments in those two losses?

In the past few seasons, the Bears have suffered similar defeats and then improved for the rest of the season. Perhaps the boys will show their development against Good Counsel on Friday at the Bears’ Den.
