Quad Header

The Quad Header is normally a heated contest featuring Loyola and New Trier. The contest for Blue this year was no different. With plenty of fans in attendance for a local showdown, Blue took the ice for a 4pm Sunday matinee game against Loyola Maroon. Maroon struck in the first period scoring with six minutes remaining. In the second, Maroon took a bigger lead as two quick goals gave them a 3-0 lead going into the third. Play was characterized as aggressive and physical with shots being taken by both sides. In the third, Blue mounted a charge starting with a Gardiner goal assisted by James. While it is true there may have been an unintentional, deflected puck which crossed Maroon's goal line, the officiating staff did not award the goal. The contest remained heated and competitive, yet without further scoring for a 3-1 final. Goaltender Lee faced and steered away 36 shots.
