Saturday Scores: Jamestown alone in 1st after sweep of K-Wings

October 21, 2012

Austin's AJ Reid had a hat-trick as the Bruins edged the Bismarck Bobcats on Saturday night, 4-3.

Kalamazoo 3 @ Jamestown 7 - The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings dropped Saturday’s contest at the hands of the Jamestown Ironmen by a score of 7-3, as Jamestown completed the two-game weekend sweep and took over sole possession of 1st place in the NAHL’s North Division.  The Jr. K-Wings struck first in Saturday’s contest six minutes into the opening period. Patrick Spellacy had the puck between the tops of the circles, and had plenty of time to rip a shot that passed Jamestown goalie, Reed Mimmack.  Quickly responding for the Ironmen was Elliot Tisdale.  During the early stages of the second period, Jamestown sprung out to their first lead of the game. Scoring on a slap shot off a face-off in the attacking zone was Dan Cesarz, who picked up his third point in two games against his former team.  Just a few minutes later, Kalamazoo was able to tie the game with a power play tally by Robbie Payne.  Just thirty-six seconds later, it would be the Ironmen regaining a one goal lead. This time it was Ross Pavek who was able to beat Alex Okicki.  Luc Boby would tie the game at 3-3 before Jamestown took back the lead with a goal from Payden Mielke.  Only fifteen seconds had elapsed in the third period before the Ironmen were able to extend their lead to two. Notching a power play tally was Dylan Zink making the score 5-3.  Only 29 seconds after the Zink goal, Jamestown was able to take a three-goal lead. Netting his second of the season for the Ironmen was Kyle Urso.  Putting the finishing touches on a remarkable run of scoring in the first 2:19 of the third period was Tyler Dunagen, giving his team a 7-3 lead. Boxscore

Soo 4 @ Johnstown 0 – Michael Covach recorded a hat-trick, scoring the first three goals in the Eagles 4-0 win in Johnstown, earning them three of a possible four points over the weekend.  After no scoring in the 1st period, Covach scored a power play goal and an unassisted goal in the 2nd period.  Covach added a 3rd period goal as did Alex Taulien.  Tyler Marble was spectacular in goal, stopping all 30 Tomahawks shots that came his way. Boxscore

Michigan 3 @ Port Huron 1 – The Warriors snapped a seven-game slide on Saturday night with a 3-1 win in Port Huron.  After a scoreless 1st period, Jon Farkas opened the scoring for the Warriors in the 2nd period.  Goals by Darren McCormick and Zack Szajner increased the Michigan lead to 3-0 before Nico Sierra scored the lone goal for the Fighting Falcons.  Trevor Gorsuch made 28 saves in the win. Boxscore

Minot 1 @ Brookings 3 – Two 3rd period goals were the difference as Brookings defeated Minot on Saturday night, 3-1.  Beau Ricketts scored for the Minotauros to open the scoring, but that would be all they would get against Blizzard goaltender Nick Deery.  Eric Brenk tied the game in the 2nd period for Brookings.  Vsevold Kramerev scored the eventual game-winning goal early the 3rd period and captain Thomas Williams added the third goal as insurance.  Boxscore

Austin 4 @ Bismarck 3 – Division-leading Austin left Bismarck with three of a possible four points over the weekend as they opened up a 4-1 lead and held on to win 4-3 over the Bobcats.  AJ Reid had a hat-trick for the Bruins, which included two goals in the 2nd period and the eventual game-winning goal in early in the 3rd period.  Bismarck got goals from Adam Knochenmus and two from Johno May in the final 1:08 of the game, but it would not be enough in the Bobcats comeback attempt. Boxscore

Coulee Region 2 @ Janesville 3 (OT) – Jason Ford scored :13 seconds into overtime on a wrist shot to give the Jets a weekend sweep of the Chill during their Pink in the Rink weekend.  The Jets won in large part thanks to goalie Austin Priebe who made 37 saves in the win.  Eddie Matsushima opened the scoring for the Chill, but the Jets answered back with goals from Conor Lemirande and Jordan Himley.  Hunter Anderson tied the game late in the 3rd to send the game to overtime. Boxscore

Amarillo 2 @ Corpus Christi 3 (OT) – Emil Romig wristed home a shot through a screen to give the IceRays a 3-2 overtime win over the Amarillo Bulls on Saturday in Corpus Christi.  The Bulls tied the game with just :38 seconds in regulation as Gage Christianson netted the equalizer to send the game into an extra period.  Geoff Fortman also scored for the Bulls, while Ryan Chiasson and Brandon Berkely scored in regulation for Corpus Christi. Boxscore

Springfield 0 @ Topeka 1 – In another game in which both teams struggled to put the puck in the net, it was Drew Kariofiles’ goal with less than four minutes remaining in regulation that would end up as the game’s only goal as Topeka salvaged a weekend split by shutting out the Jr. Blues, 1-0.  Spencer Viele posted the shutout for the RoadRunners, making 22 saves, while Ryan Kellenberger made 34 saves in the loss for the Jr. Blues. Boxscore

Texas 4 @ Wichita Falls 1 – The Tornado got goals from four different players on their way to a 4-1 win in Wichita Falls on Saturday night to move their record to 11-1-0, the NAHL’s best.  Cameron Brown opened the scoring for Texas less than three minutes into the game.  Sami Salminen answered for the ‘Cats, but it would be all Tornado after that as Leo Lumm, Michael Hoy and CJ Reuschlein scored for Texas.  Hunter Leisner stopped 31 of 32 shots for his league-leading 9th win of the season.
