Habel Shuts Down Owen Sound Attack, Dramnitzke Beats Caledon
Submitted By Kory Green on Sunday, December 16, 2012
They say a team is only as good as its goaltending and its success hinges or their play. Well the New Hamburg Twin City Re/Max Minor Peewee Huskies have certainly received quality goaltending so far this year and this past weekend was no exception.

Friday night the team made the long bus ride to Owen Sound and blanked the Attack 2-0. Mavrick Habel chalked up his eighth shut out of the season in the Huskie net in superlative style. Some may have come easy this year due to the defense first mind set of his team mates, but this one was truly deserved. In particular, Habel literally stood on his head to make two incredible back to back saves at point blank range in the second period preserving the one goal lead he was given only moments before. “(It’s) good to have a goaltender back there (who) makes you forget the mistake you made when you come to the bench,” commented head coach Kory Green, “’cause you focus on the big save,” he said.

The Huskies were missing three players, so there was lots of ice time to go around. This caused Jake Schweitzer to play all three forward positions during the game. “It was tough to play. Especially centre was the hardest (because you) have to get back,” said Schweitzer.

On Sunday the Dogs returned home to host the Hawks from Caledon. By the end of the second period the Huskies had built up a 5-1 lead and cruised to a 6-1 win scoring with two seconds left in the game and extending their unbeaten streak to twenty-three games (21-0-2). It was a game that tested the special teams on both sides. “It was a good game. Need to work on PP (but) PK was good,” thought assistant coach Jeff Livingstone. A failed ‘D’ to ‘D’ pass on one of those power plays led to a Hawk breakaway that goalie Sam Dramnitzke absolutely robbed the Caledon player on, flashing the leather to make an unbelievable glove save.

Luke Egers scored one of the Huskie goals in a peculiar, impressive fashion on a great effort. “Well, I meant to pass to Hergie for an area pass (but it) went off the boards,” said Egers. “I hustled and got the puck (after it rebounded) but then I tripped. I saw an opening five hole but went back post,” he added. Somehow Egers got the shot away as he awkwardly fell for the highlight goal.
