December 3, 2012Bedford Sports
Fri. Nov. 30 – Home vs. St. John’s
The Mules’ venture into the Northwest Hockey Conference Red Division began with a 5-0 loss at the hands of the high-powered Titans of St. John’s. Many predictions have the Titans taking the OHSAA title this year. Bedford proved that they belonged in the Division, holding St. John’s to no more than two goals per period in a cleanly played contest.
St. John’s scored halfway through the first period and twice in the first five minutes of the second period to take control of the game, the last goal coming on a power play. Their final two goals came in the first half of the third period. The Titans outshot Bedford 37-9, as goalkeeper Adam Glick thwarted many St. John’s scoring drives from start to finish.
Sat. Dec. 1 – Home vs. Saline
When Saline scored to take a 3-1 lead with just under seven minutes remaining in the game, few people could have predicted the final outcome. Bedford scored a pair of goals to tie it, then added the game-winner at 2:49 into overtime, eking out a 4-3 victory. The goal came out of a scramble in front of the Hornet net, and was credited to Josef Molnar.
Saline scored first, less than two minutes into the game. The Mules tied it a minute later on a goal by Drew Goupille, with Noah Szenderski and Jim Schulty picking up the assists. The Hornets scored the only goal of the second period, then picked up what they hoped would be an insurance goal at 10:05 of the third period.
Kyle Kuhr brought Bedford back into range, making it 3-2 on an unassisted goal at 12:24. Then Weston Swick got the Mules even, assisted by Tyler Ingalls, at 14:19. Both teams tightened their defense for the last 2:41 of the period, forcing an eight minute sudden victory overtime. Each team had one shot on goal before Schulty and Molnar teamed up to end it all. Adam Glick again kept the Mules in the game with several key stops. Bedford outshot Saline 26-21.
