Sunday Wrap-Up: Wildcats move into 1st place with sweep

September 29, 2013

Johnstown's Alex Okicki posted his first shutout of the season in a 2-0 road win over the Soo Eagles on Sunday.

Wichita Falls Wildcats 3 @ Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees 1 – The Wildcats beat the Killer Bees, 3-1, on Sunday to finish the weekend sweep and move into 1st place in the South Division. Chase Munroe made 33 saves to earn the win, while Jordan Jancze had a goal and an assist. Max Reisinger and Will Vosejpka also scored for Wichita Falls in the win. After a scoreless 1st period, Vosejpka got the first goal after a well-executed odd-man rush. Next, it was Jancze who scored after another odd-man rush, this time with the Wildcats shorthanded. Rio Grande Valley pulled within one midway through the third period after Evan Schmidbauer pulled the puck off the left-wing wall and beat Munroe on the top shelf. But the Wildcats responded soon after, as Max Reisinger skated the puck along the right-wing wall, cut inside at the top of the circles and unleashed a laser that beat Olli Kalkaja blocker side at 14:34 of the third. Boxscore

Johnstown Tomahawks 2 @ Soo Eagles 0 – Jordan Watt scored two goals, including a penalty shot, and Alex Okicki stopped all 28 shots he faced for his first shutout of the season, as the Johnstown Tomahawks defeated the Soo Eagles 2-0 on Sunday afternoon. The Tomahawks took two out of three games this weekend, and have won four of their last five. Watt scored his first goal, a power-play goal, from the right side of goaltender Paige Skoog at 5:15 of the second period. After being pulled down on a breakaway attempt, Watt was awarded a penalty shot. He took advantage of this opportunity, sliding the puck underneath Skoog and into the goal with 2:09 remaining in the third period. Both teams had their share of scoring opportunities in this game, but both goaltenders were solid with Okicki stopping all 28 shots he face and Skoog stopping 24 of 26 shots in the loss. Boxscore

Kenai River Brown Bears 4 @ Minnesota Magicians 2 – Three straight goals in the middle of the game proved to be enough for the Brown Bears as they doubled up the Magicians on Sunday afternoon by a score of 4-2.
