La Crosse Freeze 14, Rochester Ice Hawks 4
If you’re a fan of high-scoring hockey games then this was one to be at.
The Freeze got things going with six goals in the 1st period from five different players including Sam Wenner, Ben Johnson, Hunter Breza, Daylon De Souza, Wenner and Daniel Toycen, respectively. Taylor Trapp (3), Matt Wolter (2), Jerame Schuetzle, Reid Brown, Toycen, Hunter Dolan, Patrick Gazich and Johnson. The Ice Hawks added one of their own at the 4:11 mark but the Freeze took the 6-1 advantage into the 2nd.
The middle frame was much like the first. Ben Henderson, Wolter, Dolan, Trapp and Wolter again each added to the 6-1 lead to go up 11-2 after Rochesters Dominik Bogdzuil stopped the bleeding at the 16:31 mark. JP Eykyn, Mick Nisbet (2), Schuetzle (2), Brady Thiering, De Souza (2), Gazich, and Jared Bromberg all added assists in the 2nd.
The 3rd was a little more competitive with Bromber (Nisbet, Eykyn), Eykyn (Nisbet, Henderson), and Dolan (De Souza, Bromberg) all adding goals. Rochester added two to make the final score 14-4.
Only one game this weekend for the Freeze and it’s this Thursday night against the North Iowa Bulls. Tickets are only $4 when you preorder them online. We’ll see you Thursday at 7pm!
