President's Update November 25th, 2013

On Friday evening all teams were in action in the HHL. In Raymore, The Bethune Bulldogs won their third game of the year by scoring a shorthanded goal midway through the third period to clinch the win 3-2 over the Rockets. Tyler Dobrescu scored what would end up being the winner. Raymore came back to tie this game twice. Lucas Ulmer got the Bulldogs on the board in the first and Tyrell Shulko would answer that later in the period. In the second period Jens Johnson would score on the power play to give the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead going into the third period. Shulko would tie the game for the Rockets early in the third period before Dobrescu would score to make the final 3-2 for Bethune.  Each team had four minor penalties…interesting enough was the fact that there wasn’t a duplicate call within the eight penalties….so eight different penalties….Ryan Seibel picked up the win in net for the Bulldogs and John Arscott was in net for the Rockets.

In Avonlea, the Arrows scored four goals, including two power play goals, in the first period to power their way to a 7-3 victory over the Cupar Canucks. 2013 League MVP Shay Neufeld scored twice in the first period, once on the power play, and added an assist to lead the way for the Arrows. Calvin Watson scored on the power play and James Ardelan scored the first of two goals he scored in this game to complete the first period scoring. Layton Ludwar and Mark Jelenski with a power play goal would score in the third period to complete the Arrows scoring. Jaret Eberle scored twice for the Canucks in the second period, once on the power play, and Donovan Chow scored shorthanded for the Canucks in the first period. The Canucks had eight minor penalties, two misconducts and a game misconduct. The Arrows had nine minor penalties. Nathan Fischl picked up his first win in net as an Arrow and Jamie Wutke was in net for the Canucks.

President's Update - November 22nd, 2013

Strasbourg @ Lumsden

The Lumsden Monarchs won their second game in a row with a 7-5 victory over the Strasbourg Maroons. Once again it was the line of Brady Aulie (2G, 1A), Steve Eberts (2G, 2 A) and Austin Preete (1G, 2A) that did most of the damage with ten points in the game. Jesse Matlock scored unassisted and Miguel Pereira scored an empty net goal to round out the scoring for the Monarchs. Will Hood picked up his first HHL win in net stopping 25 of 30 shots. At the other end of the ice Jeremy Ellis, a former junior teammate took the loss stopping 34 of 40 shots for the Maroons.  The game was close throughout. Lumsden scored first and Strasbourg scored a power play goal from Greg Ferguson late in the first to tie the game. Aaron Decorby and Tanner Exner scored in the second to give the Maroons a 3-1 lead. Lumsden would then score four goals to take a 5-3 lead and then in the dying seconds of the second period Evan Meyers would get the Maroons to within one. Lumsden scored in the first minute of the third period and with just over two minutes left in the game Aaron Decorby would score to get the Maroons to within one. An empty net goal would seal the victory for the Monarchs who evened their record at 2-2-0. The Maroons fell to 1-1-0. The Monarchs had one minor and the Maroons had four.These two teams will meet again in Strasbourg on Friday evening.
