Game 1 Summary: Black Widows vs. T-Rhyme

At first, this game seemed to be an even matchup between two solid teams. Joe Harris of T-Rhyme opened up the scoring only 2:57 into the first period, but was later matched by Andrew Hess of Black Widows. The first ended 2-1, in favor of T-Rhyme; yet this period would not forecast the rest of the game. T-Rhyme scored quickly, 33 seconds into the second period, making a point that they deserve the top spot in the league. The Black Widows were not disrupted by the quick goal, and managed to tie the game up with two consecutive goals in the second. At one point, the game was tied at three apiece. However, the final tally of 9-4 tells the story of third period full of goals. T-Rhyme scored four times, securing their victory in the third period.

Game 2 Summary: Team Brett vs. Danny Boys

This game featured a battle between the young and skilled Team Brett, and the older and experienced Danny Boys. The two teams were tied in the standings before the game, so a close one was expected, and the two teams delivered. The game began with each team scoring twice in the first, back and fourth. The second period went to Team Brett, scoring four goals and forward Andy Reuhl collecting a hat trick. Instead of bringing the Danny Boys down, this large lead acted more as a spark of motivation, driving Danny Boys on a monumental comeback attempt. Danny Boys pulled four goals together in the third period, all by different players showing their ability to work together, yet the four goals were not enough. Team Brett won the intense battle 8-7.

Three Stars:
1. Kevin Rawlik (F; Danny Boys; 3G 3A)
2. Andy Reuhl (F; Team Brett; 3G 1A)
3. Brett Heringhaus (F; Team Brett; 2G 1A)

The second contest of the night featured two fast paced teams, each capable of great offense. We were to see both teams put the puck in the net several times, yet settled for what turned out to be the most evenly played game this season!

BGSU Stick-and-Puck Sessions

The BGSU Ice Arena is considering adding stick-and-puck sessions to our schedule this fall. This would be a time to work on fundamentals with friends, teammates, family, or individually: skating, stickhandling, passing, and shooting; all in a non-scrimmage environment.

We’ve put together a survey to gauge interest in stick-and-puck sessions as well as other BGSU Ice Arena hockey programs. This is a great chance to provide your input on the Ice Arena’s hockey programs – let us know why you participate (or why not). If you have not completed a survey yet, please open the attached file and fill out: you can either print it up and turn in a hard copy to the skate shop (attention Andrew or Denis) or use the text select tool and copy into a Word file and Email back to us (

Please forward this survey to other hockey players you know. Even if they don’t play here at BGSU, their input is valuable as well!

Thanks, and see you on the ice!
