Boys Hockey: Wingers split with Austin, South St. Paul
Austin appeared to have caught Red Wing feeling down after a bad loss on Tuesday, but the Wingers regrouped from a two-goal hole and beat the Packers, 4-2, on Thursday.
Austin took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission, and still had a hold on the game until Jack Nevitt scored unassisted 13 minutes, 30 seconds into the second period. Then, Teddy Lillico scored off assists from Michael Stoffel and Jack Maroushek at 6:55 of the third to tie the game.
Noah Bolland got the game-winner at 10:42, on a feed from Cam Blue, and Mack Maroushek scored the final goal four seconds before the horn.
Red Wing put 41 shots on Ryan Flanders, who made 37 saves. Zach Harding stopped 21 of 23 Austin shots.
Two goals in the first 36 seconds of the game made Tuesday's game between Red Wing and South St. Paul an electric one right away. But the Packers pulled the plug with two more goals in the first, and four in the second on their way to a 7-4 win over the Wingers.
Mack Maroushek scored unassisted to pull Red Wing even less than a minute into the game, but by the time Barrent Blaney scored at 11:37 of the third, the Wingers had given up six-straight goals to South St. Paul. Michael Stoffel also scored in the third for Red Wing.
Zach Harding gave up all seven goals on 33 shots. Jacob Toensing made 13 saves to pick up the win.
