South junior Tenley Shield looks up ice during the second period of the Blue Devils’ 5-1 win over Bloomfield.
December 13, 2012
Grosse Pointe South’s girls’ hockey team won its third straight game, beating much improved Bloomfield 5-1 last week.

In year’s past, Bloomfield wouldn’t register a shot on net and the game would be over after two periods due to the eight-goal mercy rule.

Not anymore and it’s to the benefit of the league said South head coach Joe Provenzano.

“This was a good hockey game and our girls had to work hard to earn this win,” Provenzano said. “I like the fact that Bloomfield and other teams improved their roster. It makes for better games and improves the players’ skills.”

The host Blue Devils took a 2-0 first-period lead when junior Tenley Shield lit the lamp twice. Her first goal was assisted by senior Allison Daudlin and the second was unassisted.

Bloomfield scored its goal with only 2:40 left in the opening period. South goalie Isabella Strickler couldn’t get back quick enough after making an initial save. Bloomfield’s Nicole Pomish scored.

Shield completed her hat trick at the 9:48 mark of the second period. She skated in alone and fired a shot on goalie Madi Kramer, who made the save, but Shield was able to corral the rebound and shoot it into the back of the net.

Senior Darian Dempsey scored at the 2:24 mark of the third period with Daudlin netting another assist, giving the home team a 4-1 lead after two periods.

In the final stanza, freshman Ellie Flom scored with Daudlin and Dempsey drawing assists.

Strickler earned the win, stopping a dozen shots in the process.

Last weekend, South scored a 3-1 victory at Livonia Ladywood, improving to 4-0 in the Michigan Metro Girls High School Hockey League.

Shield, Dempsey and Lindsey Makos scored goals, while Gennie Martin and Sam Taylor had assists.
