Beavercreek had an opportunity to play on the big ice at Nationwide Arena on Tuesday afternoon when they faced the Gahanna Lincoln Golden Lions. This is a yearly treat for the boys, but it really never gets old! Family and friends enjoyed the friendly confines of the Columbus Blue Jackets home ice and many a picture was taken.
The Beavers had lost their previous two games each by only a goal and were raring to bounce back and get another W. The game was close early on, but they put the game away in the second when they scored 5 goals. Mason Mikesch had two goals and two assists, Max Pezzot had two goals, Cole Gutterman had one goal and 4 assists, PJ Kosir had a goal and an assit, Nate Schivelbein had a goal and an assist, Marshal Enfield had a goal, Joe Bordas had a goal, Joey Duford had two assists, and Asa Hebert got an assist (way to go Asa!). Kevin Bovair and Ben Duford split time between the pipes for the Beavers and collectively turned away 15 shots on the afternoon.
Next up for Creek is a much anticipated OHSAA playoff game Friday night at 8:45 PM against the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks at the Ice Haus, which is next to Nationwide Arena.
