The Beavercreek Varsity Hockey team found success in two preseason games in Sylvania this past weekend. The team–backstopped by solid goaltending–dominated in both games, with several players tickling the twine.
Sophomore Owen Huff was not only the first to put the biscuit in the basket in the Friday night game vs Perrysburg JV, but he added another goal to his tally later in the game. Sophomore Joey Donahue was on fire with three points (two goals and an assist). Sophomore Riley Hanson capped off the scoring in the 5-2 win with an unassisted goal. Junior Ben Duford and freshman Ian Champagne split the game in net.
Taking what they had learned the night before, our players displayed some fantastic team play in the Saturday night game vs Whitmer. Junior Thomas Bush scored a hattie, while freshman Alex Elsner rang up an impressive three point night (two goals an an assist). Senior defenseman Braden Cox pocketed two pucks (including one unassisted), while Donahue added another goal to his successful weekend. Duford and Champagne split the 8-0 shutout win.
