HOCKEY: Carlson gets big win over Grosse Ile

The Carlson hockey team has turned things around by adding two big wins to its season recently.

A week ago the Marauders took on Grosse Ile and knocked off the Red Devils 6-2 in a back-and-forth affair.

Carlson took an early 2-0 lead in the first after playing what Coach Dennis Gundick called the team’s best period of hockey this season.

Tyler McIntosh smacked in a perfect shot to the upper shelf to get the team on board with help from Anthony Martucci and Tommy Kramer.

The Red Devils kept pressing, but it was the Marauders who struck next with a goal from Pat Holder, assisted by Drew Coleman.

Carlson held Grosse Ile scoreless for another period and added another goal of its own in the second for a 3-0 lead.

Tommy Miles had a nice shoot and drive play, assisting on Steve Trosell’s goal for the three-goal advantage.

Four minutes into the third, Carlson capitalized with a power play goal on a give and go from Ben Ott to Austin Bliznik.

Grosse Ile finally got on board for a 4-1 game, but Holder responded with another goal after nice puckwork from Coleman and Austin Jarinski.

Grosse Ile managed to knock in another, but Carlson did as well for the win.

With a minute and a half left, the Marauders were short handed but Kramer and Martucci fed the puck to McIntosh who sealed the deal for the win.

The Red Devil goals came from Jake Kettlehut and Mitch Daley for his first goal of the season. Dean Ziberi and Alex Pflum had the assists.

Grosse Ile Coach Jason Durbin said it was just a bad outing for his team.

“It was a good game by them, and a complete bad game by us,” he said. “It was definitely disappointing.”

Carlson Coach Dennis Gundick was pleased with the win over a tough Grosse Ile team.

“Grosse Ile is a well-coached team and we knew we had to stick to our game plan,” he said.

On Dec. 4, the Marauders knocked off Crestwood 9-0 in a game that lasted two periods.

“Our guys played like a team,” Gundick said. “We made some great passes all night.

“Everyone got to play and made the best of it. Everyone contributed and we got a much-needed win.”

McIntosh and Ott finished with two goals each, Jake Thomas scored his first goal and Coleman finished with four assists.
