The Atom AE Huskies hang on in their series against the Arthur Vipers as they defeated them 2-1 in game four at the WRC on the weekend.  The Huskies dominated the play and worked hard as a team to secure the win.  The Vipers lead the series 5 points to 3 in a 6 point series for the Tri County League Championship, and the Huskies will return to Mount Forest for game five against Arthur on Wednesday night.  Arthur was first on the scoreboard late in the first period as they scored on a power play with a tough shot by Bryan Richardson (12) that snuck through the 5 hole.  Max Evans was screened but then shook off the goal.  He proved his determination and confidence as the Huskies' netminder and was outstanding in the remainder of the game.  The action continued and still the Huskies were scoreless after the second.  In the third, the Vipers began to look tired and the New Hamburg boys took advantage.  Quickly into the third Brandon Ropp got ahold of the puck in front and blasted one in to the elation of the home crowd.  Excellent assists to Jake Schweitzer and Ryan Hillar on the goal.  A few minutes later Zachary Hart snuck one by, as it got past Riley McCabe and rolled over the line to go ahead in the game; an assist to Aidan Voisin.  Harty had one of his best games, always hustling and getting back to backcheck.  He was extremely effective in the game and an offensive threat.  The Huskies had minutes to hang on and the incredible aggressive play from the defensive players, and the excellent hustle of Sam Herrle and Schweitzer made it happen.  The Huskies worked hard to clear the puck and keep it out of their own end.  Good stick handling by Charlie Slessor and Noah Walmsley.  Adam Barr and Luke Timmons were amazing with their game sense and terrific hustle.  Scott Carey, Ryan Hillar and Joey Entz were involved in every play and did their jobs consistently and with passion.  Bravo again to the Huskies' defense!  Forward lines also worked well together and there were various passes from Corson Myers and Jack Weiler.  Great encouragement from alternate goalie Tyler Jackman.  Good luck to the Huskies in game five on Wednesday night.  Go Huskies!
