Despite being almost equal in the Shots-on-Goal column (22-20), the Eagles fell to the Hornets of Saleen 6-1 Wednesday night at the Cube.
The Eagles looked good in the first period, trailing by only a goal 1-0 , but the second period proved to be their demise. The Hornets scored 3 goals in the middle stanza while the Eagles only mustered 1, from freshman forward Sei Nakamura (assisted by Henry Hescheles and Ryan Schmunk) when he pushed the puck past the sprawled Saleen goalie during a scrum in front of the net. The Hornets tacked 2 more goals on in the third, resulting in a 6-1 final score.
The boys hit the ice next during the Dan Jilik Memorial all-city tournament January 4th & 5th at the Cube…be there or be squared.
