CBC showed why are the best team in Mid-States this season as they improved to 20-0-1 on the season. The Cadets swept the season series from the defending Challenge Cup Champions the SLUH Jr. Bills in convincing fashion at Affton Ice Rink, outscoring them 5-1 and outshooting them by a 4 to 1 margin.
SLUH received some terrific goaltending from their Custom Shirt Graphics Player of the Game Branden Haselhorst who kept his team in the game but the vaunted CBC offensive attack was too much. The most significant goal came late in the second period after SLUH had cut the Cadets lead to 2-1 with a power play tally from Steve Lockwood.
As time was ticking down on the middle period, CBC Junior Josh Bell got behind the SLUH defense and buried a pretty shot under the cross bar with under 12 seconds left in the period to restore CBC’s two goal lead. For that clutch effort, Bell was named the Cadets Player of the Game.
The Cadets would tack on two more goals early in third period from Austin Rueschhoff and Joey Lupo to win going away 5-1.
