2016-17 Week Three Recap
The rematch of last year's finals featured a very different look than the series back in May as the Seals (1-1) took on the Hornets (2-0). With the Seals missing goalie Dean Olivas Jr. and the Hornets missing elite scorer Kevin Konfara, both team required other players to step up. The Seals got strong goaltending out of back-up Brendan Nienhaus. Meanwhile Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer subbed for the Hornets posting three goals. Ultimately, the Seals proved triumphant defeating their foes in a lopsided 10-3 victory. Both teams now sit at 2-1.
The second game was one to remember between the Cobras (1-1) and Wolf Pack (0-2). A back and forth scoring game through and through. Both teams have a very balanced scoring approach and this showed in the game. Wolf Pack captain Jeff Fleshner, and Cobras forward Jordan Zmich each registered 5 goals in the contest. The Cobras at one point had a string of 5 consecutive goals. However, the Wolf Pack never gave up. Goaltender Trei Cools kept calm to keep them close. With just over a minute to go Wolf Pack forward Anthony Theuer rifled one past Cobras goalie Jamie Porter to give them the lead. The final score ended at 9-8 with the Wolf Pack being victorious for the first time this season. Each team now has a 1-2 record.
This season is shaping up to be yet another close one as all 4 teams have earned victories at this point. Join us at the next game on November 20th at Canfield Arena in Dearborn. The Seals take on the Wolf Pack, and the Hornets take on the Cobras.
