December 19, 2013The University Liggett boys' hockey team remained undeated after beating visiting Midland 6-2 last week.
"We were a little too complacent on the ice and didn't play our game," head coach Mike Hamilton said. "I've noticed that the last game, too, but the guys played better in the third period.
"We need that level of intensity to continue."
The Knights scored a goal in each of the first two periods to build a 2-0 lead.
Senior Jake Jerome scored the first goal early in the first period, with senior William Yates assisting, and Yates tallied at the 5:29 mark of the second period, with sophomore Harrison Wujek and junior Stephen Campau assisting.
The Chemics scored in the first minute of the third period to cut the deficit to 2-1, but senior Vincent Scarfone tallied two minute later to give the Knights the two-goal cushion. Yates and sophomore Alexander Minanov drew assists.
The Chemics scored with each team skating with four, cutting their deficit to one goal again, 3-2.
After that, the Knights turned on the jets and put the game away by scoring the next three goals.
Junior Mason Demsey scored at the 6:13 mark, junior Jacob Smith scored at the 3:57 mark and sophomore Brett Abdelnour scored (power play) at the 1:47 mark to turn a 3-2 lead into a comfortable 6-2 advantage.
Smith assisted Demsey's goal, while Jerome assisted Smith's tally. The final two assists went to Demsey and senior Cole Zingas.
Junior Luke Soyka earned the win in net.
Liggett is 5-0 overall.
