LEEMING LEADS WINGS TO CONVINCING WIN OVER TIGERS
IHSA PREMIER LEAGUE - ROUND 1 - GAME 1
Redwings 9 Tigers 3
The newly revised Ice Hockey South Australia Premier League kicked off the 2017 Season with a rematch of last season’s two Grand Finalists, with the reigning champions Adelaide Redwings storming home with a convincing 9 - 3 win over the Adelaide Tigers.
The 2016 IHSA Premier League Scoring Champion Tyler Leeming, picked up where he left off last year scoring four goals and adding an assist in the Wings win, with Nicola Pau, two goals and single tallies to Trevor Walsh, Steve Best and newcomer Dave Gal rounding out the scoring.
“It’s always a good tough game against the Tigers and I don't think the final score truly reflects the intensity that was on the ice”, Leeming pointed out after the game.
“Considering it was our first game of the season I thought we played well. Obviously there are areas we need to work on, but overall it was a good effort, but both teams”, he added.
Gil Krmac, Kent Algate, and Brandon Taylor replied for the Tigers.
The Wings outshot the Tigers 52 - 25.
