HOCKEY: Trenton tops Churchill, Woodhaven rolls (PHOTO)

Billy Brock had a goal and an assist as Woodhaven clobbered St. Clair Shores in its opening game a week ago.

The Trenton hockey team opened the 2012-13 season with a 5-4 win over Livonia Churchill with help from numerous player, new and old.

“All three of our lines scored,” Coach Mike Turner said. “That is always good.”

Phillip Pugliese and Quinn Preston each got the first goals of their high school careers and Preston had back-to-back goals in the second period to give the Trojans their first lead of the night.

Brad Teska and Andrew Sawyer had the other Trenton goals and Sawyer’s turned out to be the game-winner.

“Our defensive zone coverage needs to be better, but we got some good scoring and we came from behind twice in the game, so that was good to see,” said Turner.

Sawyer (goal, two assists), Preston (two goals, assist) and Justin Dunn (three assists) had three points each in the victory.

Trenton led 5-3 when Churchill pulled its goalie and scored with less than a minute to play, but Trenton killed off the final seconds.

Nick Ramirez got the start in goal and claimed the victory.

Trenton returns to the ice tonight for its home-opener against Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook.

Between the first and second period, Trenton will honor former Trojan star Andy Greene and raise his retired No. 8 into the rafters.

Alex Robinson also had two goals and Billy Brock, Brett Gomolak, Trevor Kowlaczyk and Jake Swindle had one goal each.

Williams assisted on four of the Woodhaven goals, giving him a six-point night. Moore and Mike Perry, who had three assists, each finished with three points.
