IHSA PREMIER LEAGUE - ROUND 2 - GAME 1
Redwings 13 Black Hawks 1
Defending South Australian Premiers the Adelaide Redwings are off to a scorching start after two rounds, adding to their opening win against the Tigers, with a 13 - 1 demolition this week against the Blackhawks.
Star forward Steve Best was top Wing shooting five goals and adding three assists, while teammates Tyler Leeming and Nicola Pau with two each and Dave Gal, Marcel McGuiness, Adam Wise, and Anthony Browne all chipped in with single scores.
“I was happy with how both games have gone so far” said Best. “I've been teamed up on lines with a mixture of players so far, and we’re all working well and finding each other in the right sports. I hope we can keep it up the rest of the season.”
The Blackhawks fought back in the second period, out-shooting the Wings 15 - 7 but managed only one goal off the stick of Jarrad McDonnell, their only tally of the night.
Both goalies, Glen Forbes White of the Blackhawks, and Andrew Glass had busy nights despite the lopsided margin. The Wings outshot the Hawks 49 - 25.
