Exciting start to the season for the Redwings!

The Varsity Redwings faced a tough matchup in their opening game Sunday at Loyola. The Redwings opened up the scoring with a power play goal early in the first period. After a tough bounce in front of the net that tied the game 1-1 where it remained through the first period, the Redwings were able to open up a 3-1 lead in the second period. Loyola pressed hard but the Redwings were able to answer Loyola’s attack, eventually holding on for a 4-3 victory in their season opener.

The JV Redwings drew a tough first matchup against a veteran Waubonsie team at the Pow Wow tournament this weekend. They followed with a low scoring goalie battle against Highland Park where they fell just short to drop their second game of the tournament. The Redwings found some offense in the last two games of the tournament however; closing out the last two games with 9-2 and 7-1 victories to finish the tournament with a 2-2 record.
