Wednesday, the Varsity Hockey team squeaked out a 3-2 win over the Fenton/Linden Griffins on Wednesday night.
The first period featured a seesaw of lead changes with the Griffins taking advantage of a powerplay to net the first goal. Lakeland stormed back with a goal from Senior Kyle Sierota thanks to a filthy pass from linemate Fisher Christian. Junior Robby Lewis added a second goal with an unassisted snipe from the right circle. The Griffs tied up the game on a timely breakaway late in the period.
No scoring in the second period and much of the third set up a dramatic end to end rush by Sierota for his second of the night. With just under 3 and a half minutes before overtime Sierota took the puck from deep in the Eagles’ zone and muscled his way up the left-side boards, cut to the net at the goal line and hammered home the game winner.
The Eagles had to kill off a late penalty to seal the win. Senior goalie Jason Slicker stood tall in the net turning back 26 of 28 shots for the win.
Coach Ronayne: “We’re happy walking out of there with a win. Fenton outshot us and really turned it up in the third. But Kyle scored yet another big goal for us. He’s scored enough big goals that we need to find a nickname for him. But as a team we need to play stronger on the puck.”
