A Well Oiled Machine!
Submitted By John Donkers on Monday, October 5, 2015
The New Hamburg LL1 Huskies came out flying in their second regular season game against the Hesspler Shamrocks! The boys demonstrated great team play again and were backed up by solid goaltending from both Brody and Shaun. 

The Huskies put pressure on the Shamrocks early in the game, with several great passing plays resulting in some great scoring chances. Thomas took an early tripping penalty but the Huskies did a great job killing the penalty and were actually able to apply pressure shorthanded. Owen and Aiden made this author think of the Sedin twins with their ability to move the puck tape to tape without looking. They made a great passing play and Aiden netted the first goal of the game. The Huskies continued to pressure and Simon capitalized on a great feed from the corner from Jonas to make the score 2-0. Hesspler fought back and were able to slide one past the Husky goaltender on a scramble in front of the net.
The Huskies opened the scoring of the next period seconds in on a beautiful goal by Ben Baptie. Another great passing play by the twins allowed Owen Burns to follow up with a great goal to make the score 4-1. Owen and Aiden continued to undress the defence and Owen Kropf put in his first goal of the game. Drew managed to slide on epast the Hesspler goalie on a high blocker side shot from a sharp angle, (Drew, if you read this, that is a low percentage shot. Consider trying something different?). Owen Kropf followed up with his second goal of the game to make the score 7-1 for the Huskies. Thomas seemed to have enjoyed his first visit to the box because he followed up with a second before the end of the period (He seems to be enjoying his role as the enforcer). The Huskies maintained great pressure in the third, with the coaches mixing the lines up, giving the defense a chance to see more action. Both Husky goaltenders did a great job between the posts, making some key saves, but their taste of the action was limited by the great play of the defense. In the post game interview coach Donkers expressed his pleasure with the entire team effort that the boys gave in the game. In fact, the bench was relatively quiet throughout the game since the boys performed like a well oiled machine. Congratulations Boys, on another great game. Keep up the hard work!
