The Annual Turkey Bowl rivalry between Brebeuf and Carmel continued Saturday. The game ultimately ended in a tie between the two teams, but served a greater purpose. There were around 100 turkeys donated by the players and families of both schools to the Wheeler Mission House.
The Brave’s opened the gobbling, excuse me, scoring when defensemen, Ben Hannel, started the play in the Brebeuf zone. He handed the puck off to forward, David Duncan, who found his new line-mate, Andrew Penca, for the first goal of the game. The first period would end with a Brebeuf lead, 1-0.
Carmel came out hot in the second period with Teagan Compton scoring 2 straight un-answered Greyhound goals, boosting Carmel to a 2-1 lead.
Carmel would maintain that lead deep into the third period. Ben Hannel would once again find the puck at his stick in his own zone sending it up the ice to Michael Bounsall, who chipped the pass perfectly off the boards and around the Carmel defense. Bounsall would carry the puck in towards the goalie where he found leading scorer, Andrew Penca, for his second goal of the game, knotting the score at 2.
Since the game was not a scheduled conference game there would be no over-time.
Brave’s goalie, Nick Boccone, stopped 21 of 23 shots and made some big saves in the later moments of the game to keep the score tied.
Brebeuf has a brief break in the schedule for the holidays, returning to action against Summit City on December 6th at the Carmel IceSkadium.
