Creek Puts On A Clinic, Downs Sycamore 9-0

Domination.  That’s the best word to summarize Beavercreek’s victory over the Sycamore Aviators Saturday night at Sports Plus.  The Beavers were playing their second game in as many nights against a SWOHSHL Gold Division foe.  Unlike their somewhat uninspired victory over the Mason Comets on Friday night, Creek came out with a focused purpose Saturday.  Puck possession, tape-to-tape passes, and solid defense.  That’s Creek Hockey at its best.

Like pretty much every game this season, the Beavers took a while to get on the scoreboard.  They finally did ten minutes into the game when Marshal Enfield found the back of the net off a sweet pass by Braden Cox.  A few minutes later on a penalty kill, Mason Mikesch squeezed in a shot in under the goal tenders arm pit off a clearing pass from Alex Folga, giving Creek a 2-0 lead.

The Beavers really got things going in the second.  Enfield got his second of the night off a pass from PJ Kosir to start things off.  Less than a minute later Braden Cox lit the lamp off a rebound from an Enfield shot, giving Creek a 4-0 lead.  This was followed by a beautiful tape-to-tape-to-tape goal by Mikesch, that was assisted by Cole Gutterman and Tanner King.  Also in the second, Max Pezzot got a power play on a nice give-and-go play from Cox.  Mikesch rounded out the scoring in the second on another nice pass from Gutterman, which gave Mikesch a hat trick.

Creek kept the peddle to the meddle in the third and were rewarded for their effort with another Mikesch goal, this one assisted by Joe Bordas and King.  Gutterman rounded out the scoring for the evening with a sweet goal that was assisted by Kosir.  The net minding combo of Kevin Bovair (two periods) and Ben Duford (one period) recorded the shutout victory.  Creek out shot the Avs 56-10 on the evening and that poor net minder for Sycamore was probably seeing shots in his sleep!  Next up for the Beavers is a game on Sunday 12/9 at 10 AM against the Elder Panthers at Northlands.



Beavers Best Comets, 7-1

Beavercreek was back on the ice Friday night for what turned out to be their first regular season road game of the season when they faced off against the Mason Comets at the Sports Plus.  Although the Comets were participants in the Frozen Creek the weekend prior, the two teams did not play against each other during the tournament.  As with many Creek hockey games this season, the better part of the first period was a feel out process and the game remained scoreless until Mason Mikesch scored on an unassisted tally.  Shortly after that Mikesch scored on a power play goal that was a snipe shot from the top of the circles.  Later in the first, Braden Cox found pay dirt off the rebound a shot from Marshal Enfield.  Not to be out done, Mikesch scored his third goal giving him a hat trick in the first!  Mason responded with a goal of their own, however, Creek sported a 4-1 lead after one.

Mikesch got the lone goal in the second, on a dipsy doo how do you do move that left the Comet’s goal tender on his belly.  Cole Gutterman lit the lamp early in the third off a sweet pass from Mikesch from behind the net.  Mikesch ended the scoring on the evening on another sniper shot, which gave him 5 goals on the evening!  Kevin Bovair was the Beaver’s net minder for most of the game and turned away 10 shots for the victory.  Ben Duford came on late in the game and turned away two shots.  Next up for Creek is another SWOHSHL affair, this one against the Sycamore Aviators Saturday night at 9:30 at Sports Plus.
