Romeo boys hockey coach Nick Badder wanted a repeat performance of the Bulldogs’ first period in their Division 2 regional championship game on Saturday.

He got it.

Behind three goals, two of which came just over a minute apart, in the opening 17 minutes, Romeo breezed by Anchor Bay, 8-3, Tuesday to reach a state semifinal game Thursday at USA Hockey Arena.

“We thrive on the first goal,” Badder said. “That’s huge for us. It shows we’re focused and ready to go. We thrive on confidence. That’s our biggest thing.”

Romeo (24-2-1) built a 5-0 lead Saturday on Port Huron Northern before finishing off with a 7-1 win.

“This is the furthest Romeo hockey has ever been with this team it’s awesome,” said senior Logan Jenuwine, who finished with two goals and four assists. “It’s really exciting moving on.”

The Bulldogs fell to Grosse Pointe South in the quarters last year, 8-2.

“We try and get a quick jump by getting that first goal,” Jenuwine said. “Then we just go from there.”

Blake Gabler and Lucas Kaczor had two goals apiece for Romeo, while Nick Blankenburg (two assists) and Frank Ruffino also scored. Logan Ganfield, Jacob Petri, Brett Lanski and Andrew Cate had assists. Goalie Nolan Kare turned aside all but one shot he faced.

Anchor Bay (13-14-1) got goals from Trevor Momot (two assists), Tyler DiDonato and Brian McClure. Anthony Novara also had an assist.

Four of the Bulldogs’ goals came on the power play.

“It was pretty simple, we played over a period in the penalty box,” Anchor Bay coach Mel Rettell said. “That’s probably one of the favorites to win the states so you can’t do that. We needed every inch of the ice to be perfect and it wasn’t.”

Romeo, which has outscored its three tournament opponents by a combined 23-7, went 4-for-8 on the man advantage.

“You have to take advantage of those, especially at this time of the year,” Badder said. “That has to be a guaranteed goal every time. We’ve been preaching that all year. We still need some work on the power play because teams coming up are just going get harder and harder.”

Romeo took advantage of a pair of two-minute, five-on-three man advantages, rattling off a total of three goals on four chances.

“Our power play hasn’t been great all year, but we’ve been working on it,” Jenuwine said. “We really stepped it up and buried a few of those opportunities.”

The Tars came in outscoring their first two tournament opponents a combined 6-3.

“They earned it, they’re going to do well,” Rettell said. “We wish them the best. They’re our brother from the MAC so we hope for the best for them.”

Romeo will face Ada Forest Hills Eastern (17-11-1) in a semifinal Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth.

The Hawks, who needed triple overtime to beat Marquette on Tuesday, lost to the Bulldogs earlier in the season, 6-2.

Livonia Stevenson will meet Hartland in the other semifinal at 5 p.m.

The Division 2 state championship game is Saturday at 10 a.m.
