Hello Cleveland! Over the MLK Holiday Weekend Green traveled to Cleveland and played in the St. Ignatius Tournament and proved again it is a very resilient team as it took 3 of 4 games including an incredible comeback against Shattuck St. Mary. While the entire team played very well, the line of Charlie Burton, Jack Raith and Matt Mulhern had a huge weekend leading the offense with 12 of the team's 17 goals.
Game 1- Culver Academy - Green opened Friday night with a 5-0 win over Culver Academy from Indiana. Hayden Wieczorek got the shutout with a strong game in the net. The highlight of the game was junior Tristan Jones getting his first goal of the season off a wrist shot from the point after Alex Levine won the draw straight back. Tristan's grandfather from Washington D.C made his first trip to see Tristan play this season and it was great he got to see the goal. Mulhern and Raith each had 2 goals and 1 assist to lead the way. Green's penalty kill was particularly good in this game as it often had better chances than the Culver power play.
Game 2- St. Francis - In its first game on Saturday, Green played St. Francis from outside Buffalo, NY. Johnny Huber opened the scoring at the 10:22 mark of the 1st period as he got the puck at center ice and skated into the St. Francis zone, made a quick cut to the left, and sent a wicked wrister far side top shelf. Goalie WIll Douthit was challenged several times in the 1st but kept them off the board. St. Francis kept coming in the 2nd period and tied it up at the 10:33 mark with a power play goal. But Green answered a little over 3 minutes later when Raith converted a beautiful 2 on 1 pass from Burton. Green tried to hold the lead in the 3rd and Douthit made some big saves including stopping a breakaway 4 minutes in. St. Francis kept a cherry picker in the neutral zone and tried several times to spring him loose. The strategy finally worked with 2:41 left when St. Francis got a player behind the Green D with a nice pass and he went in and scored to tie it up 2-2. There was no overtime and it went to a 3 player shootout where unfortunately Green lost.
Game 3- Shattuck St. Mary - Green only had a few hours to deal with the heartbreaking loss to St. Francis. Apparently it wasn't quite enough time because Green came out flat and when the clock hit the 9:32 mark Green found itself down 3-0. Showing great character and mental toughness Green did not give up, and Wieczorek shut the door the rest of the way. This was one of the roughest games of the year and 16 penalties were called, 9 against SSM. Green had to keep its composure to have a chance. The Green power play struck twice in the 2nd period to cut the lead to 1. Michael Graham had the first, with assists by Huber and Louis Lybrook, and Raith got the second assisted by Mulhern. Near the end of the 2nd period the Green penalty kill had several great chances, including Huber getting a penalty shot that was stuffed. Green pressed in the 3rd and was finally rewarded when Mulhern had a beautiful tip in of a Dillon Munson shot at the 3:30 mark to tie the game. Then Green got a 5 on 3 power play and with 16 seconds left in the game Raith got the winner assisted by Burton. It was a great comeback after a disastrous start.
Game 4- Providence Catholic - Green's final game was against Chicago rival Providence Catholic. Green was 1-2 against Providence this season so this was a chance to even the season series against a highly ranked rival. Green saved its best game for last with a great team effort and convincing win. Providence got the first goal just over 2 minutes in but Green came right back 47 seconds later with a Burton goal assisted by Mulhern. It stayed tied for 6 minutes until Green got the lead that it would never give up when Raith was credited with a Providence own goal. About a minute later Graham made it 3-1 with a slap shot from just inside the left circle, assisted by Lybrook and Huber. Providence made it a 1 goal game again a couple minutes later, but Nico Meyer, with a rocket slap shot, and Mulhern added goals to give Green a 5-2 lead after the 1st period. For the 2nd period Providence switched goalies to try and change the momentum but it didn't work. Providence did get a power play goal in the 2nd, but Raith added a power play goal in the 3rd period off a beautiful cross ice pass from Chris Sonnenschein to close out the scoring 6-3 and cap off a very successful weekend.
