The Beavercreek Varsity Hockey team passed the midway point in their 2015-16 season this past weekend with, despite a rough win-loss record, some positives to look back on and, more importantly, some positives to look forward to.
So, starting with a neat stat: At the mid point this season every player (not including goalies) has contributed at least 2 points with the points list as follows:
Ethan Green-28, Jonnie Ives-14, Nick Martin-10, Braden Sanders-6, Jack Belmonte-5, Shane Sanders-5, Nick Belmonte-4, PJ Kosir-4, Sammy Donahue-3, Chad Peacock-3, Joey Duford-3, and Brian Daniels-2.
Goaltending saves so far are Brian Daniels-330:, Kevin Bovair-159, Gram Doherty-137, and Scott Hergenrather-16.
Looking ahead to the next two weeks, the Beavers play away at the South Metro Sports Complex near Centerville next weekend with a Friday Jan. 8 game at 7pm vs. LaSalle, followed by two Saturday Jan. 9 games- 9am vs Sycamore and 7pm vs South Stars, and a Sunday Jan. 10 game at 8am, 10am, or noon. Make plans to take the short drive and cheer on your Battling Beavers as they start the second half of the season!
The following weekend Jan. 16,17,18 the Beavercreek Varsity Hockey team travels to the mecca of their winter tournament destinations in Strongsville, Ohio for the Ehrnfelt Memorial Hockey Tournament. The Beavers play a four game schedule over the Martin Luther King Day weekend and hope to return home with some hardware for the school’s trophy case.
Beavercreek returns home to the Kettering Rec. Center Friday Jan. 22 for a 10:00pm home contest vs St. Xavier and a Sunday Jan. 24 game at 4:00pm vs Talawanda, also at the Kettering Rec. Center. Mark your calendars now, as these nights promise to be a LOT of fun!
