Country Day Wins First Game at Cadillac Tournament 3-1
Detroit Country Day hockey improved to 4-0 with a 3-1 win against host Cadillac at the Cadillac Thanksgiving Tournament.
Country Day worked the power play to perfection to score its first goal just under nine minutes into the game. From the left point, Jake Hartje passed to Shane Switzer at the right point. Switzer found Sebastian Stankiewicz all alone at the left circle. Stankiewicz moved right in on goal, and beat Cadillac goalie P.J. Nemish with a high hard shot.
Four minutes later, another good passing play produced the Yellowjackets' second goal. Max VanAntwerp found Zach Bensinger behind the Viking net. Bensinger quickly got the puck out to Jack Bergmann at the right slot, who buried the puck for a 2-0 first period lead.
Most of the second period was scoreless, but Cadillac converted with a little more than a minute left in the period. Tyler Thomas scored from Gabe Gischia and Spencer Graham to cut the Country Day lead to 2-1 after two periods of play.
Country Day finished the scoring at 4:21 of the third period when Toby Murray scored on a wrap around after a pass from Jake Hartje.
