The Brebeuf Braves hockey team was back in action today, making a short trip south to face the Bloomington Blades. The Braves continued their dominance on the road with a 5-3 victory.
Brock Moore used his powerful slap shot to get his team on the board during their first man-advantage of the game. Assistant Captain and leading scorer, Parker Baumann, followed up with an unassisted goal of his own late in the first period, extending the lead to 2-0.
The Braves came out of the locker room with even more intensity in the second period. Sarkis Torosian found the cookies on the top shelf when he roofed a rebound chance in front of the net, assisted off the initial shot from Matt McKay. Assistant Captain, David Peacock, started that offensive attack with a precise pass to McKay from the Brebeuf zone, showing great poise and patience.
There was definitely “Moore” where that came from as Brock lined up another blistering slap shot from the blue line for his second goal of the game, the Brave’s fourth. Luke Eckerle and McKay would be credited with the assists.
With a 4-0 lead, the Braves effort wavered slightly in the last period. They started the period on the wrong side of a 5 on 3, but Bloomington was only able to capitalize for one goal. Brebeuf slipped with a lack of discipline, sending seven different players to the penalty box in the final frame. The Blades scored a second power play goal just a few minutes later, making the score 4-2. Forward, Ryan Witchger, had enough of the Bloomington scoring and decided to net a goal of his own, assisted by Lane Erickson.
Brebeuf hung on to the 5-3 victory. Goalie, Nick Boccone, stopped 16 of 19 shots faced and carried a shutout into the final period, tallying another win between the pipes.
