HOCKEY: Trenton dominates Anderson, Roosevelt

This much is certain this season: The Trenton hockey team has not gotten much of a challenge from local rivals.

In six games against Roosevelt, Anderson, Allen Park, Woodhaven and Carlson, the Trojans are 6-0 and they outscored their opponents 49-9.

Coach Mike Turnerís team added to their total last week with a 9-3 win in Wyandotte a week ago, followed by an 8-1 win in Southgate on Saturday.

Nick Bondy, Quinn Preston and Mitch Galea all scored in the first 10 minutes of Saturdayís game and that wrote the story.

Andersonís Mac Slowick scored late in the first period, but that was the only offensive highlight of the night for the Titans.

It was 4-1 after one period and 6-1 after two.

The Titans learned the peril of taking penalties again Trenton. Anderson had seven penalties (Trenton had five) and the Trojans scored on four of the power plays.

Eight different Trojans scored in the game as Turner rolled his lines and let everyone get into the act.

In addition to Bondy, Preston and Galea, Andrew Sawyer, Aaron Arturi, Justin Dunn, Brandon Burke and Phil Pugliese all scored for the winners, who had 44 shots on the Southgate goal.

Southgate responded with 24 shots at Trenton goalie Garrett Carroll, but he stopped 23 of them.

A week ago against Roosevelt, Dunn scored a natural hat trick in the first period and the Trojans led 3-1 after the first 17 minutes.

The Trojans owned the second period, scoring five times and taking an 8-2 lead into the final stanza. Trenton outshot Wyandotte 21-7 in the second period.

Dunn finished the night with four goals and two assists. Galea had three goals and two assists. Preston and Conor Cunningham had the other Trenton goals. Cunningham also had three assists. Sawyer and Bondy each had two assists in the game.

Nick Ramirez played the first two periods in goal for the Trojans and allowed two goals on 18 shots. Carroll played the third and allowed one goal on 12 shots

Roosevelt goalies Chandler Pattenaude and Trevor Porter bore the brunt of the 41-shot Trenton attack.

Andrew Storey scored both Roosevelt goals, the first on a first-period power play and the second on a third-period power play.

Trenton is now 11-3-1 and has not lost since a 5-3 setback at the hands of Birmingham Brother Rice on Dec. 7.

The road gets a lot tougher, now, however. Three of Trentonís next four games are against teams pegged higher than the seventh-place Trojans in the USHSHO overall state rankings.

Tonight the Trojans go to Livonia to face fifth-ranked Stevenson. Stevenson is No. 1 and Trenton is No. 2 in the Division 2 state rankings.

After going Mt. Clemens to face Warren De LaSalle Saturday, Trenton will face Brother Rice (fifth) and Novi Detroit Catholic Central (third) before heading into the annual MIHL Showcase.
