After coming off of losses the night before, both the Warriors and Green Wave were looking for redemption and a tally in the win column on Saturday night.
On Friday evening Walsh Jesuit took on Saint Ignatius at the Quicken Loans Arena where they lost in the third period by a score of 3-0 while giving up two empty net goals to the Wildcats. For Holy Name, they travelled to Winterhurst to play Saint Edwards High School in a losing effort by a score of 5-3. Scoring for the Namers in the matchup was Tyler Guarniere, Sebastiano Layne and Sean Bauchens.
Starting for the Namers in this Saturday night matchup was Anna Cvitkovich in goal, Jack Mohar, Brennan Dickey, Guarniere, Spencer Melcher and Nathan Fatica. The first period was a defensive battle as both goalies had miraculous saves with the score being tied at zero going into the first break.
With just only forty seconds into the second period the Warriors found the back of the net on a breakaway goal scored by Max Miotke. Only a few minutes later Walsh struck again this time with a goal scored by PJ Calleri off of a missed shot to make the score 2-0 going into the final period.
The third period saw very physical play and aggressive team play for all of the fifteen minutes. With five minutes into the period the Warriors found the back of the net with a goal scored by Miotke for his second of the night. With a few minutes left in the game, Coach Tim Sullivan decided to pull the goalie to have an extra skater on the ice, but Walsh took advantage of that and scored a shorthanded goal scored by Miotke for a hat trick.
When the final buzzer sounded the final score was 4-0 in favor of the Warriors.
Senior captain, Justin Sill was able to comment about the tough loss for the Green Wave as he stated, “We need to come back together as one as we have to get out of the habit of losing. I take full responsibility for this loss because I failed as a leader but can promise that it will never happen again. Best thing about today is that it is over and we can get right back at it on Monday.”
The Walsh Warriors move to 1-1 in the conference as the Holy Name Green Wave now has a record of 0-2.
