Huskies split pair in boys hockey

Stratford Gazette

Stratford Northwestern boys hockey team split their last two Huron-Perth games, leaving their record on the season at 2-1.

In their last game at Dufferin Arena, Huskies skated to a solid 6-2 victory over South Huron Panthers.

After a tight-checking and scoreless first period, Northwestern’s Nick Castell bulged the twine to make it 1-0 on a nice passing play from Evan James and Jackson Blowes.

South Huron responded, but Blowes connected on a breakaway to make it a 2-1 game going into the third period.

Huskies clinched it by scoring four goals in the third period--all by different players. Dalton Carde opened the scoring, finishing off a 2-on-1 break with Castell. Wade Niezen buried a shot from the point to make it a 4-1 game, but the Huskies didn’t stop there.

Wes Wickenheiser and Jacob Smith also scored in the final frame, putting the game out of reach.

NW goalie Adam Chiocchio was solid in the win.

Central Huron 5 – Northwestern 4

After starting the H-P season 2-0, Huskies dropped their most recent game to Clinton Central Huron 5-4. The game was played last Wednesday at Dufferin Arena.

Northwestern got off to a great start, scoring two goals in the first eight minutes of the game, thanks to Nick Castell and Jackson Blowes.

Central Huron, however, stormed straight back, with the help of some sloppy defensive zone play by the Huskies, and were leading 3-2 by the end of the first period.

Wes Wickenheiser banged home a rebound, the only goal of the second period, and the score was tied 3-3 going into the third.

Goalie Ryan Van Dam made a couple big saves early in the period to hold Northwestern in it, and Castell fired his second of the game to give his team a 4-3 lead.

But with less than 10 minutes to play, Clinton managed to score two opportunistic goals. Huskies applied late pressure, but couldn’t produce the equalizer.

Northwestern’s next action is this Thursday, Nov. 28 as they take on rivals Stratford Central Rams at Dufferin Arena. Game time is 2:10 p.m.
