Boys Hockey: Blizz Beat New Richmond 4-2
On Thursday night, we had a special sports presentation as the WSFLG Blizzard hosted the New Richmond’s Tigers. It may have been the best game of the year for the Blizz as they got three power play goals, two from Alex Hopkins, and came back from an early 2-0 deficit to win 4-2.
The Blizzard scored four unanswered goals to earn their fourth
win in a row. Goalie Brandon Roufs was also fantastic. New Richmond is a big, fast, and intimidating team, but after some early trouble in the first period, the Blizz recovered and put together their
best all around game of the year.
Jake Langevin addeds an insurance goal in the third period in his third game back following his suspension. In his first game back, he scored five goals and added two assists.
Final score: Blizzard 4, Tigers 2
Our Josh Miggler spoke with Coach Grant Nicoll after the game, and both the coach and the announcer seemed equally impressed with the team’s performance.
