IHSA Senior B LEAGUE - Round 2 Game 2
Redwings 7 - Blackhawks 1
Adelaide Redwings veteran mainstay Peter Boyle fired three goals and assisted on a fourth to lead his team to a decisive 7 - 1 win over the Blackhawks in Senior B League action last week.
Boyle scored twice in the second period and added his third in the final frame, with Dylan Hand adding two goals, and Aaron Grubb and Ben Pfitzner rounding out the Wings’ scoring with one goal each.
Chris Stanton scored the lone goal for the Hawks on an unassisted play late in opening period.
“The win over the Blackhawks was a surprise considering we initially thought we’d be a bit lean on the offense, but strong on defence, as we saw in our opening 3 - 1 loss to the Tigers” said Boyle.
“We’re a little uncertain about this season as our team list is still unsettled, however we are hoping with the return of Guy Martinson, who along with other senior players will assist the new additions with some guidance and wisdom” added Boyle, a National Team member in the late 1980’s.
Jo Phillis recorded the win in the Wings goal, stopping 14 of 15 shots, while counterpart Sam Poole stopped 29 of 36 shots in the Blackhawks net, including a busy 16 shot third period.
The win improves the Wings record to 1 - 1 and in a tie for second place with the Blackhawks, three points behind the first place Tigers.
