The Blue and Gold came out Smokin’ in the first period! Nick Townes started the scoring at the 9:42 mark with a shot past Chicago Goalie, Nick Kohn to make it 1 – 0. He was assisted on the play be Gavin Tufte and Kyle Cook. Then, just over two minutes later Mike Williams put a wrister past Kohn for the second Blues goal. He was assisted by Cody Kohn and Paul Byrne, score 2 – 0. Three minutes later Kyle Cook scored on assists from Cody Kohn (again) and Josef Pontasch. They still weren’t finished scoring in the first as Mitch Rogge put the puck in the net with help from Mike Williams and Cody Dixon. Just two and one half minutes later Mike Williams scored his second goal of the game on assists by Radim Matus and Mitch Rogge. After the smoke cleared and the dust settled, the horn sounded to end the first period with the Blues leading 5 – 0 over the Hitmen.
Period two saw the teams trade goals and our newest member of the Jr. Blues, Radim Matus scored the sixth goal for the Jr. Blues from the right side of the goal. He was unassisted on the play. Madigan of the Hitmen was given a minor penalty for slashing at 17:57 of the second. He also received a 10 minute game misconduct for slashing as well. Medjia of Chicago also was given a two minute penalty for slashing at the same time.
The third period was dominated by the Blues as they scored four more times. Kevin Walters started the scoring in the third with assists from Cook and Dixon. Tufte followed with assists by Nauman and Mike Williams. Ethan Nauman finally got a goal on a sweet pass from Chris Sitler. Kyle Cook scored his second goal of the game unassisted and late in the game Chicago scored their second goal. That made the final score 10 – 2 Jr. Blues as this was their most dominating game of the season.
