Austin Lukaschewski racked up his second hat trick of the season for the Bishop Foley Unified Warriors in their 7-2 road win over the Macomb Lutheran North Stallions Saturday night.

The Warriors' Steven Jacques also got his first high school goal. That goal turned out to be the gamer-winner.

The victory was the first for Bishop Foley in the Catholic High School League, and third overall for the season.

“Before the game,” said Warriors head coach Dave Williamson, “the coaches asked the boys to come out and get a good start and that’s what they did. We scored three goals.”

Lukaschewski opened the scoring about five minutes into the first period. Matthew Blake and Steven Jacques worked the puck forward to Lukaschewski at center ice. Lukaschewski dumped the puck past a Stallions defender, picked it up and went in untouched on the Stallions goalie for the score.

Two minutes later, Lukaschewski made it a 2-0 lead for the Warriors with a close-in shot that beat the Stallions' goalie high on the stick side. Warriors defenseman Rudy Stuglin fed Lukaschewski the puck.

Jacques then made it 3-0 in favor of the Warriors with just under five minutes left in the opening period. That goal held up as the game-winner. Matthew Blake and Dominic Doxen got the assists.

“Stevie got his first high school goal and it was the game-winning goal. That’s always nice,” said Williamson. “That does a lot for his confidence.”

The Stallions held the edge in the shots on goal in the first period, 13-6. However, it was the Warriors that were on top in the score 3-0. The Warriors scored on three consecutive shots, the third, fourth and fifth shots for the team in the period.

The second period brought new life to the Stallions, and a new goalie, Rocco Viviano, in the net for the team.

“In the second period, the other team outhustled and outplayed us. In the middle of the second period we woke up and outshot them,” reflected Williamson after the game.

The Stallions Zach Weglarz scored at 11:03 in the period, and then, less than a minute later, netted the Stallions second goal of the game.

Suddenly the game took on a whole new appearance with the Stallions trailing by a single goal, 3-2.

Late in the second period, the Warriors' Kristin Doxen passed the puck up to captain Kaylan Taylor. Taylor passed the puck across the net to Tyler Hiltunen, who got off a quick snap shot. The puck bulged the twine at the back of the Stallions net.

The Warriors were back to a two goal lead, 4-2, at the end of the second period.

Shots on goal flip-flopped in the second period. Lutheran North had six to the Warriors 14.

Each team had twelve shots on goal in the third period, but it was all Warriors on the scoreboard, as the team tacked on another three goals.

Lukaschewski completed his hat-trick on the Warriors fifth goal of the game. Lukaschewski just got out of the penalty box. Kristin Doxen passed the puck up to Tyler Hiltunen, who got it to Lukaschewski at center ice behind the Stallions defense. It was a breakaway goal for Lukaschewski on the Warriors' first shot on goal of the third period.

Matthew Blake netted the Warriors sixth goal. Jacques took the first shot and Blake buried the rebound. Lukaschewski set up the play.

“Matty Blake is getting icetime with Austin (Lukaschewski). He can keep up with Austin and he seems to find the open holes. He’s very creative with the puck, too,” said Williamson.

Hiltunen completed the scoring in the game with a second effort goal scored at 6:24 in the third period. Lukaschewski got his fifth point of the game with the solo assist.

Williamson also paid a compliment to his defense after the game.

“I can count on one had the number of odd-man rushes they had, two. I thought our D played stellar.”

The Warriors Alex Day got the win and a complete game.
