HOCKEY: Trenton gets defensive victory over GPN (PHOTO)
Trenton’s hockey game with Orchard Lake St. Mary was cancelled on Dec. 21 due to the ice storm in Oakland County.
That was disappointing, because the Trojans seemed in prime shape to take on the highly regarded Eaglets.
Coming off a dominating 4-0 victory over Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League rival Grosse Pointe North and fresh off one of their best practices in weeks, the Trojans were poised for a big game in Orchard Lake.
“It’s too bad we didn’t get to play,” said veteran Coach Mike Turner. “It seemed like we were really ready.”
The game will be made up Jan. 10 at Orchard Lake at 7 p.m.
A week ago Trenton visited Grosse Pointe North and held the Norsemen to just nine shots the entire game.
Trenton goalie Nick Ramirez stopped all nine of them to earn the shutout.
Justin Dunn provided most of the offense as he scored three of his team’s four goals, including the first two, midway through the first period.
Andrew Sawyer had the other goal and it was part of a four point night for the senior. Dunn also assisted on Sawyer’s goal, giving him four points in the game, also.
Turner was happy with the win, but said his team could have played better.
“We jumped out to a quick start and played really well in the first period,” he said. “In the second period we kind of got away from our game and got a little too individualistic.”
Trenton is now off for the holidays and will return to action with a home game against Carlson on Jan. 3.
The Woodhaven Warriors entered the holiday break on a happy note, scoring seven goals each in their final two game of 2013 and winning both.
The Warriors beat Ann Arbor Pioneer 7-3 a week ago and came back and beat Anderson by the same score Saturday night.
Billy Brock’s hat trick led the way to the victory over Pioneers. Alex Robinson had two goals and Dominic Moore and Jon Szczepaniak had the others.
Robinson also had two assists to complete a four-point night.
Trevor Monaco made 25 saves to earn the victory.
Saturday in Southgate, Woodhaven opened up a 4-1 first-period lead and never looked back.
Moore and Nick Youngheim had two goals each to pace the Warriors. Solo goals came from Brock, Robinson and Joel Alexander.
Brett Gomolak and Szczepaniak had two assists each.
Steven Hurley faced 34 shots and stopped 31 of them to earn the win.
The young Warriors are now a surprising 7-2 and they will return to action Jan. 3-4 when they host their annual tournament.
