Sunday Wrap-up: Springfield, Kalamazoo complete Sunday sweeps

November 4, 2012

Matt Wurst had the game-winning goal and an assist as Kalamazoo swept Port Huron with a 6-3 win on Sunday.

Springfield 6 @ Johnstown 4 – The Jr. Blues stayed hot, completing a weekend sweep of the Johnstown Tomahawks with a 6-4 win on Sunday.  The win moved the Jr. Blue past the Janesville Jets into 6th place in the North Division, just two points behind Johnstown.  Johnstown led 4-2 going into the third period, but Springfield scored four unanswered goals, including Mike Fazio’s game-winner with 1:50 remaining.  Johnstown’s Andrew McDonald started the scoring with a stick-side goal less than five minutes into the game. Springfield would quickly make it a 2-1 with goals from Ryan Atkinson and Trevor Stone just 19 seconds apart. Atkinson’s goal was his fourth in two games, following his hat trick in Saturday night’s game.  Johnstown tied the game 2-2 on a Connor Wright shot past the glove of Ryan Kellenberger. Mitch Kontny gave the Tomahawks a 3-2 lead with his team-leading eighth goal of the season at 13:00. Connor Wright finished the Tomahawks scoring with less than a minute remaining in the second period.  Springfield received third period goals from Mike Severson, Devin Mitchell, and Nate Chasteen, who scored on an empty net after Brennan was pulled with 1:15 left in the game.

Port Huron 3 @ Kalamazoo 6 – The Jr. K-Wings completed a weekend home sweep of the Fighting Falcons with a 6-3 win on Sunday. Brett D’Andrea, notched a hat trick for Port Huron, but it wasn’t enough, as Matt Wurst led the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings to the win.  Danny Hamburg gave Kalamazoo an early 1-0 lead. D’Andrea scored and tied the game up with :15 seconds remaining in the first period.  It was all Kalamazoo in the second period, as Luc Boby made it 2-1.  Adding to the Kalamazoo lead was Trevor Boyd who split the Port Huron defense and beat Max Milosek for his third marker of the campaign.  The third period was full of scoring, as D’Andrea was able to score his second of the game, bringing the score to within 3-2.  Just over two minutes later, Kalamazoo would tally another goal of their own, as Wurst let a slap shot go from the point that beat Milosek, and would be the eventual game winner.  Adding to the Kalamazoo lead later in the period was Brendan Vetter, who gave the Jr. K-Wings a three-goal lead.  However, it would be D’Andrea for the third time on the day who did his best to bring his team back into contention.  But the Jr. K-Wings offense couldn’t be silenced, as Patrick Spellacy capped the game off with a goal of his own.
