HOCKEY: Shrine uses big second period to handle Bishop Foley

The Royal Oak Shrine Knights mounted an overpowering five goal second period assault on rival Madison Heights Bishop Foley to help grab an 8-2 victory lead in a CHSL game played Friday night at Royal Oak’s Lindell Arena.

“It was a tough loss,” said Bishop Foley Head Coach Dave Williamson.

The Knights’ Chris Bradley lead the scoring for Shrine with a hat trick. Zack Zednick accounted for two Shrine goals. Joe Terbrack, Chris Kelly, and Michael Mann who opened the scoring in the first period, also netted a goal for Shrine.

With Bishop Foley down by three goals in the first period, Nich Garbarz scored Foley’s first goal with just under six minutes left in the period. Andrew Williamson set up the play with a wicked shot from the point. Garbarz, who was in front of the net, picked up the rebound and buried it for the goal.

That would be it for Bishop Foley scoring until the third period.

Shrine controlled the second period The Knights scored in every facet whether it was even strength, shot-handed or on the power play.

“It seems when we’re down by 5 or 6 goals, that’s when we wake up. Adversity hits, the green light goes

off and we have to skate,” said Williamson. “We have to go back to work at practice and work on the things we have to work on.”

Bishop Foley played their best period of hockey in the game in the third period. Foley outshot Shrine in the period 13-12 and scored the only goal of the period.

Foley’s David Halvorson charged up the left wing, past a Shrine defenseman, streaked to the front of the Shrine net and jammed the puck past goalie Steve Erwin. The unassisted goal made it 8-2 for Shrine with 12:07 left to play. Halvorson leads Bishop Foley in scoring with six goals.

“There were a few bright spots,” said Williamson. “(Like the play of) David Halvorson again, game in and game out.”

Commenting on some of his players, Williamson pointed out some other bright spots in his team’s

play. “I was really happy with Dominic Finazzo, Dominic Doxen, Jacob Doxen, and Andrew Lakocy. They stepped up. They’re getting more ice and they took advantage of it. They made some good plays in the third period.

“(We) had some of the young guys go in, Ricky (Gagliano) and Noah (Barczyk). They got a few cracks,” continued Williamson. “Noah had a real good shift. A kid hooked him, he kept his feet moving, he kept skating and there was a penalty. Noah did his job. (He) made the most of his opportunity.”

Shrine had the upper hand in shots on goal with 50 to Bishop Foley’s 32 shots on Erwin.

Daniel Collins started the game in net for Bishop Foley and faced 18 shots. Collins made 13 saves. T.J. Hatch took over goaltending responsibilities for Foley at 14:24 of the second period. Hatch faced 36 Shrine shots and made 33 saves.

Bishop Foley continues CHSL play Saturday night at home against Cabrini.
