Trenton held off a late-charging Wyandotte Roosevelt squad to earn a 5-3 victory on Wednesday at Kennedy Ice Arena.

Kenny Styles scored twice and picked up two assists, while Jordan Cormier scored a goal to go with three assists to help guide the host Trojans to victory.

The victory gave Trenton (13-8-1) a season sweep of the Bears (9-10-1 overall), as the Trojans had knocked off Roosevelt 3-1 last month in Wyandotte.

Trenton got on the board first as Cormier scored a powerplay goal 10 seconds after Roosevelt’s Jeff Johnson went to the penalty box for interference. It would be the only special teams goal of the game.

Styles and Richard Boulware assisted on Cormier’s 16th goal of the season.

One minute and one second later, Jack Palazzolo would beat Bears goaltender Jake Timmerman for the second goal of the first period.

Palazzolo tallied his ninth of the season from Drew Welsch and Brandon Morgan to put Trenton up 2-0.

Roosevelt (9-10-1 overall) cut the deficit in half later in the period when Andrew DeSana beat Trenton goaltender Anthony Lemerand at the 12:21 mark of the opening period.

DeSana’s ninth of the season was assisted by Bailey Byrd.

But Trenton increased the lead to 3-1 as Nolan Szczepaniak showed some adept skating to control the puck and get a spinning shot on goal that beat Timmerman at the 14:17 mark. His eighth goal of the season was assisted by Cormier and Styles.

The second period featured no scoring, as Trenton held the 3-1 lead until 3:05 into the third period when Styles gave the Trojans a three-goal advantage, with assists going to Cormier and Szczepaniak.

But the visitors did not go away, as they scored the next two goals of the game.

About two minutes after the Styles goal, Roosevelt’s Matt Gilbert netted his 14th of the year, from Mario Steffin and Jacob Ford, and cut the deficit to 4-2.

At the 9:44 mark, Turner Mann lit the lamp for Roosevelt and it was suddenly a one-goal game. Assists went to Byrd and DeSana on what was Mann’s sixth goal of the season.

“We kind of lost our composure, we didn’t have the intensity all game,” said Trenton Coach Chad Clements. “They were down 4-1, and the next thing you know, it was 4-3.”

On the other side, Roosevelt Coach Mike Quint said his team has been focused on trying to maintain a high level of play late in games.

“We work every day. We skate. I think we had more legs in the third period,” Quint said. “Usually, the third is not our period, but we’ve been working on it.”

Down by a goal in the third, the Bears had the momentum and still had seven minutes left to try and even things up.

However, Styles dashed the Wyandotte squad’s dreams of a comeback when he put the puck past Timmerman with 1:43 left in the game.. His 17th goal of the year, again from Cormier and Szczepaniak, allowed the Trojans to escape with the 5-3 victory.

Next up for the Trojans is a home game on Friday against U-D Jesuit, while the Bears will be at Divine Child the same night.

The hockey district playoffs will get underway Feb. 27.
