The Grand Blanc Bobcats Varsity Hockey team dropped a tough game to Mount Pleasant last Wednesday night at the Dort Federal Credit Union Arena 9-1.
The Bobcats opened the scoring with a power play goal from Alex Mosqueda on helpers from Rylee Edmonds and Brody Rosol but after that it was all Mount Pleasant who scored 9 unanswered goals in a shortened game that ended after 2 periods. The young Bobcats lost their composure a bit and never recovered.
On Saturday, the Bobcats traveled to Royal Oak to face the Ravens in a game that seem to match equal line ups. After Royal Oak opened the scoring, the Bobcats answered with a pair of goals. The first scored by Brody Rosol unassisted and the second scored by Owen Walker on assists from Alex Griffel and Hunter Bankstahl.
The Ravens then scored 4 quick goals to make it a 5-2 lead after the first period.
In the second, the Ravens again opened the scoring before Grand Blanc answered with a goal from Kevin Lahaie on helpers from Rylee Edmonds and Hayden Seguin. Royal Oak answered back again before Owen Walker made it 7-4 on assists from Hunter Bankstahl and Hayden Seguin. Royal Oak scored a set of goals again before the same line of Walker (Hat Trick), Seguin and Bankstahl made it a 10-5 game after 2 periods.
In the third, the Bobcats scored a pair of goals…first by Rylee Edmonds who scored his first Varsity goal from Seguin who continued to make spectacular passes to his team mates all night. And then Seguin himself tallied on the Power play from Walker and Bankstahl, but Royal Oak answered each goal with one of their own to finish the game 13-7.
“They basically had 2 guys we just could not stop tonight. Defensive zone coverage and goaltending let us down a bit but we will bounce next week against Ubly High School on the road next Thursday.”
“We scored enough goals to win a hockey game but some of the young guys got caught standing around a bit and did not have their best games.”
“Fortunately these guys just continue to work and not lose focus at practice. We can only get better as the season moves forward.”
