University Liggett’s boys’ hockey team split its games last weekend, falling 8-0 to Orchard Lake St. Mary’s and beating Toledo St. John’s 5-0.

“I think the St. Mary’s score is a little deceiving,” head coach Robb McIntyre said. “We had our chances to score and they had a few bounces go their way. It’s one of those games you look at and see some positives, even though we were mercied.”

It was a scoreless opening period, but the host Eaglets continued to pressure until they finally scored midway through the second period.

After that, it was all Eaglets as they tallied five more second-period goals and ended the game with a little more than three minutes left in the third stanza.

Sophomore goalie Luke Soyka suffered the defeat, stopping 40-of-48 shots. He rebounded to blank St. John’s two days later.

“It was a weird game,” McIntyre said. “They had good scoring chances early in the game, but somehow we managed to dodge those and scored on our end.”

Junior Jake Jerome scored twice to lead the host Knights. Senior Jake Soyka and junior Lordanthony Grissom also tallied for the Knights.

Liggett is 3-3 overall.
