A poised effort by senior goaltender Cameron Stepka allowed the Shoremen to take some chances and exhibit some excellent passes while Stepka backstopped the team to her second shutout of the season. She improved her record to 11-3 overall and has a 2.26 GAA on the season.
Avon Lake scored just 1:57 into the game when sophomore Justin Share crashed the net and scored a goal that would hold up to be the game-winner. Assists on the play went to fellow sophomore Tommy Kacmarcik and freshman Murphy Mohar. Later in the period Nick Ospelt fought through illness that kept him out of the previous game to score a highlight reel goal. It was his first of two goals on the night and he now has nine on the season.
Junior defenseman Hunter Hall played a very strong game overall and was rewarded with his first goal of the season off a slap shot from the point. Luke Farthing and Brian Walasinki battled hard on the play and were credited with the assists.
The Shoremen scored again in the second period when Connor Koncelik buried a great shot top-shelf after a brilliant saucer pass from freshman Brady Starck.. Freshman Adam Kelly picked up his 6th point of the season when he was credited with the other assist. The goal was Koncelik’s team-leading 28th goal in just 20 games. Jared Aslaksen assisted on Ospelt’s second goal and now has points in three straight games and 36 overall.
Avon Lake improved to 18-6 overall and is right back in action Wednesday January 17th when they travel to North canton- Hoover in a GCHSHL Blue North Division showdown.
