Pioneers' Hodgson keeps up torrid goal-scoring pace
Richardís Michael Hodgson kept up his incredible pace this season with five more goals last week and led the Pioneers to a pair of victories. For the season he has 36 goals so far and 53 total points.
On Thursday night, Carlson put up a strong fight, but was edged 3-1 by the host Pioneers (14-3-1)
The teams were scoreless for the first period, but in the second each scored one.
John Ames found the back of the net for Richard just 34 seconds into the second period, assisted by Michael Hodgson. The Maraudersí lone goal came from Austin Jarinski, with assists going to Richard Brown and Gage Darga.
Jack Skrzynski scored for Richard six minutes into the third period to make it a 2-1 game and both Devin Dickow and Brandon Damron picked up assists.
With just 14 seconds left in the contest, Hodgson scored an empty-netter and gave his team a 3-1 lead, which would be the final.
In goal, Matt Mandernach stopped 24 of 25 shots for the Pioneers.
Two nights later, Richard knocked off Bishop Foley 6-2, as the locals scored three goals in the first period, one in the second and two in the third.
Hodgson led the way with four goals and both Damron and John Sawicki each added one. Damron and Zach Gilreath both finished with two assists, while Ames, Dickow, Joe Lavine, Tyler Riney, Christian Spangler and Eric Blevins all had one.
With hat tricks from both Jesse McGowan and Andrew Miller, Huron came away with a big 10-4 win Saturday night on the road against Crestwood Unified.
Crestwood scored first to grab a 1-0 lead, but Huron hit back hard, as Jesse McGowan tied the game with an unassisted goal and Jerome Logan scored to make it 2-1, with assists going to Devin Collins and Aaron Pyzik.
The Chiefs extended their lead to 3-1 with a goal from Miller, assisted by Zack Pawleszski and Jesse McGowan, and then Pyzik ended the first-period scoring with a goal that was assisted by Collins.
Crestwood scored just 54 seconds in the second period, but Miller scored again, assisted by Collins and Christian Nill.
The Chargers scored to make it 6-3, but Jesse McGowan scored his second of the night and gave his squad a four-goal advantage at the end of two. Collins and Miller picked up assists on the Jesse McGowan goal.
Crestwood scored to open the final period, but Tyler Graves answered, assisted by Collins and Gunner Burley, and both Miller and Jesse McGowan completed hat tricks to wrap up the victory. John Michael Kosiba and Pawleszski assisted on Millerís goal and Jesse McGowan was assisted by Josh McGowan.
In goal, Tyler Keller got the win by stopping 18 of 22 shots
The previous night, Huron played a scoreless first period and was tied late against 14-1 Troy, but ultimately fell 5-2.
The Colts got on the board first with an early second-period goal, but Collins answered for the Chiefs and tied the game, with an assist going to Pawleszeski.
Troy regained the lead at the 10-minute mark, but the locals tied it up with less than three minutes to go in the second period with a goal from Jamison Cobb, which was assisted by Tyler Graves and Josh McGowan.
Unfortunately for Huron, penalties hurt the team late and the visitors capitalized with three power-play goals to go up 5-2. In goal, Keller stopped 21 of 26 shots by the Colts, some of which were fired at close range.
The tough season continued for Cabrini as the squad dropped two more games last week.
On Wednesday the Monarchs (1-13) were knocked off 8-1 at Ann Arbor Skyline, as the lone goal for the locals went to Joe Hay and Sheldon Varhol picked up the assist.
Three nights later Cabrini trailed only 2-0 after two periods at Royal Oak Shrine, but ultimately fell 6-1. The Monarchs goal scorer was Varhol and he was assisted by Chris Sukel.
In two MIHL games last week on its home ice, Roosevelt was crushed by a combined score of 13-1. The Bears (6-10) fell 7-1 to Brother Rice on Wednesday and 6-0 Saturday against U-D Jesuit.
The only goal for Roosevelt was scored Wednesday in the second period by Andrew Storey, which was assisted by Jacob Jennings and Joshua Hinderliter.
In goal, Frank Cerulla stopped 35 of 42 shots on Wednesday and on Saturday Cerulla and Trevor Porter combined to stop 30 of 36 shots.
