Saturday night saw the Beavercreek Beavers take on the Troy Trojans at historic Hobart Arena. The Beavers came away victorious behind Sophomore Riley Hanson’s hat trick. Riley put Creek on the board early in the first off an assist from fellow Sophomore Carson Cox. Hanson placed the next two pucks in the net off assists from the Cox brothers in the second period to secure his hat trick and put Creek up 3-0. Troy got on the board late in the second with a goal in the final two minutes to go into the ice cut down 3-1.
Troy made the game interesting with an early goal in the third to put the score at 3-2. The Beavers held tough and added an insurance goal off the stick of Senior Captain Braden Cox from Sophomore Joey Donahue. Junior Ben Duford and Freshman Ian Champagne defended the net in the 4-2 Creek victory.
