The first day of 2016 we get back down to high school sports covering a varsity hockey game at Queeny Sports Complex in Ballwin. We had the Chaminade Red Devils hosting the Lafayette Lancers.
The first period was good solid hockey with each team scoring a goal and being awarded a minor penalty each. The Red Devils outshot the Lancers 9 – 7. The second period got a little crazy as there was nine penalties handed out. The Red Devils scored three goals and outshot the Lancers 13-6. In the final frame the Lancers started coming alive outshooting Chaminade 11-9 and scoring a goal but the Red Devils answered with two of their own.
The Red Devils won by a score of 6-2 and outshot the Lancers 31-24. There was 65 minutes of penalties handed out. These included 3 misconducts, major and 15 minors.
A side note, we were informed that Lafayette was playing without their number one goaltender as she was out for surgery. We have been told that she was one of the best in this level of play and the pending surgery may hinder her future chances in college
In other hockey action out at Hardee’s this evening. It appears as an unofficial score but St. Mary’s defeated Ft. Zumwalt South. As the flood waters receded the Falcons hosted Vianney. Going into the third period the Vianney Griffins were leading the Falcons 4-1 with shots on goal tied at 22.
