Busy weekend for the Mules hockey team
February 4, 2013Bedford High School
Fri. Feb. 1 – at St. Francis
The early game at Tam-O-Shanter ran late and it was Senior Night for St. Francis. As a result, the game didn’t start until 9:45. It was almost midnight by the time that Bedford completed a sweep against the Knights. It took 45 minutes of regulation play, a five minute overtime, and a shootout to do it.
Bedford trailed 1-0 after the first two shooters, but successive goals by Josef Molnar, Weston Swick, and Jim Schulty clinched the victory.
St. Francis took an early 2-0 lead, and that score held throughout the first period. But five minutes into the second period the Mules tied the game in a 25 second span. Kyle Kuhr scored first, assisted by Noah Szenderski, then it was Szenderski from Kuhr and Schulty. Each team added one more goal in the period for a 3-3 tie. Bedford’s goal was Szenderski from Schulty and Kuhr.
Molnar scored back to back power play goals early in the third period to give the Mules a 5-3 lead. Connor Glick picked up the assist on Molnar’s first goal, Kuhr on his second. The Knights added their own power play a minute later, then tied it with just under nine minutes left.
Adam Glick turned in a great performance in goal for Bedford, turning back 38 shots during the first 45 minutes, then six more in overtime. During the last three minutes of regulation and the five overtime minutes, the Mules spent six of them short-handed due to penalties. The shots were 49-29 in favor of St. Francis before the shootout.
Sat. Feb. 2 – home vs. Ann Arbor Pioneer
It looked like the Mules maintained momentum from their late night win with an early power play goal against Pioneer, but Ann Arbor responded with seven unanswered goals to earn a 7-1 win. Noah Szenderski had the Bedford goal, assisted by Josef Molnar.
The first period ended with the Pioneers up 3-1, their last goal coming while short-handed. Two late second period goals made it 5-1 at the break, and the visitors added two more late third period goals to wrap up the scoring. Ann Arbor outshot Bedford 37-10 during the game. Adam Glick and Austin Grycza shared goalkeeping duties for the Mules.
Sun. Feb. 3 – home vs. Northview
The Northview Wildcats, ranked third in Ohio, came to the Ice House with memories of their early mercy win over Bedford. The Mules hung with Northview for two periods, but the Wildcats took control of the game with three third period goals to defeat Bedford by a 5-1 score.
After Northview scored a minute into the game, Bedford’s lone goal came three minutes into the first period. Graham Goupille had the goal, assisted by Jonathan Rokicki and Grant Harper. The Wildcats added a late goal, then the teams played a scoreless second period as Northview maintained a 2-1 lead into the intermission.
The Mules were outshot 30-12 during the game, and finished their inaugural season in the Red Division of the Northwest Hockey Conference with a 1-7-2 record. Both ties went to shootouts, with Bedford at 1-1 in those games.
