Huskie Pee Wee Reds win the St. Jude Tournament!

The Huskies came out on Tuesday night with a bang!  They had to face the same team that they tied 3-3 only 2 days earlier.  The tone was set when Cory started the scoring early in the first period while other team mates sent bodies flying.  St. Jude players were reluctant to carry the puck as they watched one player flattened after another.  Cory scored a short handed goal with 1:05 left to play in the period.  The coaches loaded up a power line and Jeff Lopatka scored with 35 seconds in the opening period. Michael Bliss scored on a rebound to give the Huskies a 4-0 lead.  Jeff Lopatka put the game out of reach with a power play goal in the final minute of the second period.  With a 5 goal lead, the third period was played with a running clock.  Pete kicked out all shots to pick up the shut out.  "T" Marcoski picked up his 25th assist of the season to give him an incredible 100 points for the season!
