First Period

We begin the game with Loyola’s Jack Gustafson skating in from the right hand circle and snapping in the opening goal.

A minute later, the Ramblers are back on offense as Michael Baker picks up the puck and shoots glove side on Sean Denker. That extends the lead to two.

Loyola looking to add another one to the scoreboard as Gustafson stickhandles in over the blue line. He passes to Maxime Gabal, but Denker stops him.

Second Period

Second period and the Huskies are trying to generate some offense. Although, Bradin Haynie soaks up Ben Lombardi’s shot from the point keeping Naperville North hockey off the board.

William Schreiber adds to the lead as he gets the pass backdoor for the easy finish. Naperville North hockey falls in the Blackhawk Cup to Loyola Gold by a score of 4-0. Loyola will advance to take on Glenbrook South in the state quarterfinals later this week.
