The Adrian Maples blew into Chelsea on a very windy, cloudy afternoon. The Jv team mercied the Maples with an 8-0 shutout that ended early in the second half led by 2 goals each by Parker Shaw and Chris White, and then it was the varsity’s turn to fight for a victory.
Chelsea took control early and kept lots of pressure on the Maples netminder and then with 4 minutes gone in the first half, Matthew Klink made a great shot for the first goal of the game. Several minutes later it was Senor Isaac Smedshammer with a beautiful kick about 20 yards out which the wind took and circled around into net for the 2nd goal of the game. Seven minutes later it was Junior Cullen Lindsay with a hard kick right down the middle to give the Bulldogs a big 3-0 lead. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs defense kept the Maples, not only off the scoreboard, but without a shot!
At about the 12-minute mark, only two minutes after Lindsay’s goal, it was Senior Callum Krause putting the ball in the back of the net for a big 4-0 lead. 3 minutes later Adrian scored on its first shot on goal of the half. The Bulldogs would take a 4-1 lead into the half.
In the second half, it was more of the same as Chelsea just dominated play and piled up the shots. At the 12:14 mark on Chelsea’s 18th shot of the game, it was Krause picking up his second goal of the game. The Bulldogs finished with a big 5-1 victory and ended the game with 20 shots on goal while only yielding 1 goal on 1 shot for the whole night.
Senior Matt McDaniels was in net for Chelsea the first half, Junior Logan Mahalak played in the second half. Chelsea is off until Tuesday the 6th when they travel to Lincoln.
