Stars top Wingers
Aaron Haworth scored three times in the final 20 minutes of the first half to lead the Stars to a 7-0 victory. The manner in which the goals came frustrated Red Wing coach Matt Quinn and his players.
Holy Angels senior Ryan McMillan went down three times and got the call each time, including two that led to penalty kicks after a scoreless opening 20 minutes. Quinn stopped short of calling it diving, but still complained to those in stripes at intermission.
"They just play smart," Quinn said. "They play with what they can get away with and my boys don't play that way."
Mark Tatera and Jack McIlwain added goals before halftime to give Holy Angels a 5-0 lead. McIlwain and Alex Kern scored after the break.
Red Wing goalie Aaron Grave finished with seven saves. The Wingers managed four shots, with their best scoring chance coming on a header from Willy Ahern in the second half.
"We had more shots on goal in the second half, but we had more ball control in the first," Quinn said. "It was strange."
Red Wing, which fell to 1-2 overall and 0-1 in the Missota Conference, travels next Thursday to New Prague. The Trojans are in their first year as a varsity program.
