Boys’ hockey dominates Holy Angels

Will Jarvis, Staff Writer

Coming off a disappointing loss to Hill-Murray, the boys’ hockey team rebounded strongly, dominating the Holy Angels Stars en route to a 11-1 victory. Controlling the play, the Red Knights easily shut down the Stars on both sides of the puck.

Coming off a close but well-played loss to Eden Prairie, the Stars came took the ice confidently, but that all evaporated early as sophomore Chase Jungels redirected a point shot from senior captain Patrick Graham at 5:27 of the first period. Grant Besse and Daniel Labosky would each add one more goal in the period. Labosky ended up with 2 goals and two assists on the night.

The Stars had no answer for Benilde-St. Margaret’s in the second, as the Red Knights tallied on 5 more goals to the lead. The Stars’ frustration was quite evident, especially at the end of the period when Stars defenseman Ryan Gazich was ejected from the game for fighting after lots of pushing and punching in front of the Red Knights’ net after the whistle.

With running time in the third, the Red Knights coasted to victory, scoring three more goals. Stars captain Frankie Mork fired a shot from the point on the powerplay past senior goaltender Paul Lundberg at 14:15 of the third, but that’s all the Stars could muster up on the night.

The Red Knights will get back to action on Saturday for a home game against the Blaine Bengals.
