16U Team Impresses in Ottawa

The 16u hockey team won both of their first two contests this weekend against the Ottawa Sharpshooters. In the first game the Huskies came away with a 5-0 win and Verteri Virtanen (2019) recorded the shutout.

In the second game the boys won 4-3 as Brian Saunders (2019) made 14 stops in the win. Cody Monds (Forward, 2020) led the scoring with 5 goals, Nate Boak (Defense, 2020) recorded 4 assists, Sean Bunting (Forward, 2019) had 4 points (2G,2A), Weston Batt (Forward, 2019) had 3 assists, Zach Ellsworth (Defense, 2019) had 3 points (1G,2A), Will Aqquiett (Forward, 2019) and John Biechler (Forward, 2019) each had 2 assists, and Daniel Fagan (Forward, 2019) struck for one goal.

Head Coach Trevor Gilligan said, “I was pleased with our start to the season.  With limited practice, the boys showed a solid and consistent level of compete through two games.  We were able to capitalize earlier in Saturday’s game, taking advantage of the Olympic ice surface.  Sunday, on a smaller sheet, we struggled to find a rhythm in a penalty-plagued game, but we were able to claw back in the third period, scoring three goals to get the win. I felt the comeback on Sunday was great for our team morale moving forward.”
