Just an update for November games, after beating Norway house at home the team traveled up to OCN to face the storm the next morning. Saturdays game was a good road victory for the team winning 5-3 with goals coming from Spenser Kilbrie (2 G - 1 A), McMahon 1 G,
Veitch 1 G and AP Talon Kelly had a nice breakaway goal. Trent Kroeker and Jarrett Kokolski each had a pair of assists and Patrick Denis and Brett Barkmand also had an assist each. Travis Schalk is marked for the Win in net after a solid performance.
After breakfast the team started out strong and finished strong winning 9-1 to make a long bus ride home a little bit sweeter with 4 points. Top Dawg for the game was Trent Kroeker getting 3 goals and one assist. Jon Narverud received the W in net.
Next up we had the Reigning Champions from Peguis on the 15 of November and ended up stealing an overtime game to sneak out with an extra point. Two goals from 16 year old Mac Playford was the turning point for the team and McMahon won it on a deflection to win the game. Jon Narverud with the W.
After that the team was heading to St Malo to face the November 22 and they played a solid game receiving the shutout and scoring three goals from Kalon Jonasson, Spenser Kilbrie and Jarrett Kokolski. Jon Narverud in for the Win.
Next the team played the Peguis Juniors November the 27 and the results were not good for the streaking Dawgs. A 6-0 shutout lose at home leaves a sour taste in everyones mouth after a dismal attempt.
After that lost the team played OCN @ home Friday the 29th and the team came out firing scoring four goals in the first. But after that quick start the team started to slow down their game and after three straight goals from the Storm, Cory Kuldys finally woke the boys up with a beautiful top shelf goal in the third with 3:51 left to play.
The coaching staff has been pleased with the teams progress so far but stresses that the hardwork ahead will be key in the teams success for the remainder of the season.
Tonight the Dawgs played host to St. Malo Warriors. The first period started off slow with both teams keeping the puck between the blue lines without to much hitting. The pace picked up with the first goal at 3:14 from the Dawgs Shane Taylor. St. Malo put the pressure on after the Dawgs took the first plenty of the game. Both teams started the hard hitting games we are enjoy coming to watch. From one end to the other the puck was fired, giving both goalies a workout. With less then 3 minutes left and two players down, the Dawgs fended off the attack of the Warriors to end the first with a 1 to 0 lead. It would not take long for the Dawgs to boost their lead on goals from Cody Gibson at 2:22 followed by one from Ryan Veitch at 5:19. The Warriors put the pressure on the Dawgs goaltender Jon Narverud finally resulting in their first goal form Liam Butters at 13:05. The Dawgs expanded their lead from a Cory Kuldys at 15:29, giving them a three goal buffer. The Warriors fought back with a payoff at 17:21 from Jacob Klick-McMahon. This would hold tell 10:44 of the third when Jarrett Kokolski started the goals for the period. Goals from Kalon Jonasson at 11:11, Brett Barkman at 12:12, Connor Jonasson at 15:40, Trent Kroeker at 16:10 and the final goal goes to Spener Kilbrei ending the game with a 11 to 2 victory for the Dawgs.
