Boys’ hockey upset by Holy Family 7-3

Jeremy Pastir, Staff Writer

Scoring, and scoring often, tends to be the Red Knights strategy going into most games. Overpower other teams with an offensive onslaught of shots in the first and second period, and survive the throughout the rest of the third. However, issues arose on December 12th, 2013 when the boy’s hockey team ripped off 50 shots on goal, only managing to score on three of them, and ultimately falling to Holy Family 7-3. HF turned the tables on BSM, beating them at their own game by scoring four unanswered goals in the first period. Any momentum that was gained for BSM when sophomore Zach Risteau scored early into the second period was stripped away not even one minute later. HF added one more goal before the period ended making the score 6-1. BSM was able to muster two more goals, with Ben Newhouse and Peter Heimbold scoring one apiece, but the significant lead posed too much to overcome. The Red Knights fall to 4-2 on the season, and hope to regain some momentum against Hibbing.
