Weekend Hockey Recap: Two wins for the Mules
January 8, 2012Bedford Sports
Fri. Jan. 6 – home vs. Maumee
A big second period propelled Bedford to an 11-1 win over Maumee in a penalty filled game mercifully shortened by the 10 goal differential rule. When the game ended, the Mules had six players on the ice, five in the penalty box, and four on the players’ bench. Maumee was in a similar position.
Dominic Pisanti had a huge night for Bedford, scoring five goals, including four in succession during the second period. Kyle Kuhr had one goal and five assists. Five other players chipped in a goal apiece – Travis Krider, Grant Harper, Devin Keener, Josh Hoogendoorn, and Noah Szenderski. Krider also had three assists.
Harper got the Mules on the board with 2:53 remaining in the first period, but Maumee evened it a minute later. Following two spectacular saves by Adam Glick on a Panther breakaway, Krider put Bedford in front for good on a short-handed goal with 42 seconds remaining in the period. The Mules were outshot by 13-8 but clung onto a 2-1 lead at the first intermission.
Then Pisanti put the game out of reach with a goal two minutes into the second period, followed by three power play goals, making it 6-1 with eight minutes left in the period. Hoogendoorn and Pisanti added more power play goals, making it 8-1 at the break. Then the penalty boxes became filled as five players on each side received a minor plus misconduct in a pair of scuffles.
Keener scored a short-handed goal 13 seconds into the third period. Two minutes later Szenderski made it 10-1, followed 15 seconds later by Kuhr’s slap shot from the blue line that found the back of the net and the game was over.
Sat. Jan. 7 – at Ann Arbor Huron
For the second day in a row, second period scoring made the difference as Bedford overcame a 2-1 deficit with a five goal performance, then added a third period goal in cruising to a 7-2 road victory over Ann Arbor Huron.
Once again it was Dominic Pisanti leading the Mule scorers with three goals. After Huron had tallied a minute into the game, Pisanti evened the score a minute later on a power play. Huron added their second goal two minutes later, and the last 13 minutes of the period were scoreless. For Huron, their scoring was over for the night.
A minute into the second period, Pisanti had the game even again, and 83 seconds later Jimmy Schulty put the Mules ahead for good. Travis Krider, Devin Keener, and Pisanti added goals over the last six minutes of the period as Bedford built a 6-2 lead into the second intermission. Grant McCormack closed out the scoring with a power play goal midway through the third period.
Bedford outshot the River Rats 42-17 during the game, and were 2-for-3 on the power play, continuing their torrid 49% pace, while holding the opposition to 13% over the first 11 games. The win evened the SEC record to 2-2, raising the overall record to 8-3.
