GASPARI SCORES PAIR AS WINGS EDGE THE FALCONS

June 15, 2017

Senior B League - Round 9  Game 1

Redwings 4 - Falcons 1

 

Matt Gaspari’s two late goals led the Adelaide Redwings to a 4  - 1 win over the Adelaide Falcons in Senior B League play last Thursday at the Ice Arena.

 

Both of Gaspari’s goals came with less than a minute to go in the first period and then again with seconds to go in the third period, as the Wings improved their record to 7 - 1 - 1 - 0  and tightened their hold on first place with 23 points. The loss dropped the Falcons back to 2-7 and tied for third position on the ladder with the Blackhawks, both with 6 points.

 

Lukas Mojzisek and Jason Lowe scored the other two goals for the Redwings, while Christian Murdoch scored on a nifty pass from the “sly old fox” Orville Hildebrand for the Falcons only goal of the night.

 

The Redwings held 3 - 0, and 3 - 1 leads after the opening two periods, but both sides battled back and forth most of the game with the shots even at 29 - 29.

 

Wings goalie Jonny Cousins made 28 saves to register the win, while Dale Glover stopped 25 shots for the Falcons.

 

“The team played well and with a bit of hard work out there, it all came together” said Gaspari after the game.

 

“We focused on getting the puck to the net and keeping the pressure on. Scoring the two tonight and contributing to the win really felt good”.

 

Gaspari started playing ice hockey back when the Summer C Grade first kicked off at the Ice Arena, playing for the Killer Bees.  After a few years of playing in the summer league he was drafted by the Redwings and has been with the red and white for the past eight seasons.

 

All four clubs will return to the ice for Round 10 of the IHSA Senior B League on Sunday 25 May with the Tigers hosting the Redwings at 6:45pm, followed by the Falcons and Blackhawks at 8:15pm.
