Hockey: Mules split in weekend action (Photos added)
January 8, 2013Bedford High School
Fri. Jan. 4 – at St. John’s
Due to a late scheduling change and a weather cancellation, the Mules got back into action after almost a three week break. First up was an NHC rematch with St. John’s. The game was a virtual carbon copy of the first encounter, with Bedford coming up on the short end of a 5-1 score.
The Titans built up a 2-0 lead in the first period, both goals coming on power plays. The Mules made it interesting midway through the second period on their own power play. Noah Szenderski found the puck in a scramble in front of the St. John’s goal and scored, assisted by Connor Glick.
Late in the period the Titans regained their two goal lead, added an insurance goal early in the third period, and finished off the Mules with a late period goal. St. John’s peppered goalkeeper Adam Glick with 40 shots, while Bedford was held to 12 shots.
Sat. Jan. 5 – Home vs. Ann Arbor Huron
The River Rats came into the game with a 1-7 record, and it looked like Bedford figured that a win for the home team was a given. Much to the Mules’ surprise, Huron staged a third period rally and emerged with a 7-4 win.
Huron opened the scoring late in the first period, but Noah Szenderski tied it with six seconds remaining, assisted by Kyle Kuhr and Jim Schulty. Bedford had its first lead in the game in the third minute of the second period on a Weston Swick goal, assisted by Dominic and Michael Pisanti.
Midway through that period the River Rats tied it, but within a minute the Mules regained the lead on Dominic Pisanti’s goal, assisted by Michael Pisanti and Kuhr. Before the period ended, Huron scored twice to grab a 4-3 lead at the break.
Expecting another comeback, Bedford was shocked when Huron scored twice in the early stages of the third period. Jacob Ansara scored in the last minute of the game to make it a 6-4 game, but the River Rats added an empty net goal in the dying seconds for the 7-4 final.
