Bulldog hockey team
improves to 11-2 season
by SHARON JENUWINEAfter a big night of "Sticking It To Cancer," the Bulldogs had to put the celebration on hold and get ready for a league hockey game on Saturday, Jan. 19, when they faced the L'Anse Creuse North Crusaders.
As the period began, it was evident that the momentum from the previous night was carrying over as Hunter Jenuwine opened the scoring for the Bulldogs assisted by Dustyn Fleming and Cam Gillem. The energy continued on the ice as Jake Rutkoske scored assisted by Wyatt Bevins and Gillem. The Bulldogs ended the period leading 2-0.
The second period had the Bulldogs shorthanded several times. With 10 minutes left in the period, Trevor Tessmar scored assisted by Dakota Danescu. Again, the Bulldogs were shorthanded but kept the Crusaders from scoring and the period ended with a score of 3-0.
The third period started as Jenuwine scored an unassisted goal making the lead 4-0. The scoring would continue for the Bulldogs as Gillem scored assisted by Jenuwine and Bevins, making it 5-0. Mitch Pacitti was ready to open the lead to 6-0 when he scored assisted by Adam Soboleski and Mitch Bidus. The Crusaders were not going to be shutdown yet as they responded with a goal and the score was 6-1.
The Bulldogs continued to be a force as Soboleski scored back-to-back goals assisted on the first by Pacitti and Fleming and then by Pacitti and Alex Gurnsey. The score was now 8-1. One more goal ended the game in a mercy call as Rutkoske scored assisted by Danescu and Kyle Nedbal. The final score was 9-1 and increased the Bulldogs season record to 11-2.
Head Coach John Minjoe was proud of his team.
"We were real strong this weekend," he said. "It was a very emotional game yesterday and then we had to come back right behind that with a league game. We did the things we had to do to win. We have a 10-game winning streak and that is something special."
The Bulldogs are hoping to keep that winning streak going as they head out on the road midweek to play Notre Dame Prep Fighting Irish on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at the Troy Sports Center at 7:45 p.m.
