HOCKEY: Carlson splits final week

The Carlson hockey team split games in its final week of the season with a loss to Roosevelt and a mercy-rule win over Monroe.

Against Roosevelt, the game was closer than the 6-1 score indicated.

The Marauders only trailed only 3-1 with six minutes to go in the final period.

The lone Carlson goal came from CJ Yacoune. Pat Holder had the assist.

“We were happy with our play the first period and a half, two periods,” said Carlson Coach Dennis Gundick said. “(We thought) we’ve got a chance here. With Wyandotte you’ve gotta take the chance with the opportunities.

“Unfortunately the cards weren’t in it for us. That five-on-three kind of deflated us. (But) it was a decent game for us. We played a good team.”

The Marauders responded well in their next game with an 8-0 win over Monroe.

En route to their victory, Carlson saw five power play goals.

Monroe hung with the Marauders in the first period, but the Carlson offense proved strong and the team took a 3-0 lead after the first period.

Anthony Martucci got the scoring started, assisted by Richie Brown.

Tommy Miles netted the first power play goal of the night, also assisted by Brown.

Pat Holder got his offensive night started with back to back goals in the first and second period.

Tyler McIntosh and Yacoune had the assists.

Yacoune then continued his strong season and recorded a natural hat trick in the second period with three power play goals.

McIntosh and Holder assisted two of the goals, and Nick Milot assisted on one.

Holder finished things quickly just a minute and a half into the third period to cap off the scoring and get the mercy win.

McIntosh and Yacount had the assists.

Gundick and his team knew Monroe is a young team and used the game as preparation for their regional game.

“We were more concerned because we are getting ready for Thursday’s regional game,” Gundick said. “We were worried about not moving the puck as well as we thought we could.

“As it turned out, we moved the puck good (but) I thought we played a little bit sluggish at times.”
