HOCKEY: Trojans score 22 times in two games

The Trenton hockey team’s offense was at its explosive best last week as the Trojans scored 22 times in two games, won twice, and improved their season record to 5-3.

Livonia Clarenceville fell 10-2 a week ago. On Saturday, the Trojans hammered visiting Woodhaven 12-2 in game that was halted after two periods.

“Our offense was definitely there,” said Trenton Coach Mike Turner. “We need to be more consistent with it and play like this against some of the good teams in our league.”

Against Woodhaven, Trenton scored its 12 goals on just 31 shots and scored plenty on each Woodhaven goalie, Steven Hurley and Trevor Monaco.

Everything was working for the Trojans, who scored on two of their three power-play chances.

It was a four -point night for Justin Dunn, Griffin Sawyer and Aaron Arturi. Dunn and Sawyer each had two goals and two assists and Arturi had a goal and three assists.

Mitch Galea, the leading goal-getter in the Michigan Interscholastic League with 14, scored twice as did Phil Pugliese.

Brandon Burke, Sol Markus and Quinn Preston had the other Trenton goals.

Grant McClellan chipped in with three assists.

Garrett Carroll played goal for Trenton and stopped 13 of 15 Woodhaven shots.

Nick Youngheim had both Woodhaven goals and Dom Moore assisted on both of them.

Trenton led Churchill just 3-1 heading into the second period a week ago, but turned the game into a rout with four second-period goals.

Pugliese had two goals and two assists and Galea and Dunn each had two goals and an assist.

Griffin Sawyer, Andrew Sawyer, Nick Bondy and Preston had the other Trenton goals. McClellan had three more assists and Preston and Andrew Sawyer had two each.

On the same night Trenton was beating Churchill, Woodhaven grabbed a 4-3 overtime win against a strong Plymouth Salem team.

Woodhaven trailed 3-2 late in the game, but Drew Holland’s power-play goal in the final minute times it at 3-all. He was assisted by Moore.

Two minutes into the extra period, Moore himself netted the game-winner.

Moore got credit for the goal, but most of the work was done by Yousef Suede, who drew a Salem defender and the goalkeeper to him before slipping the puck to Moore for a slam-dunk goal.

It capped a three-point night for Moore. Brett Gomolak and Jon Szczepaniak also scored for the Warriors, who are now 5-2.

“We played very well in the third period and in the overtime,” said Woodhaven Coach Bryan Sullivan. “Salem was a very good team and they were a lot bigger than us, but we decided we wanted to win and we got it done. It was a pretty good deal to see.”

Woodhaven finishes the pre-holiday portion of its schedule with a home game tonight against Ann Arbor Pioneer and a game at Southgate Saturday.

Trenton is at Grosse Pointe North today and at Orchard Lake St. Mary Saturday.
