Last night the University of Kentucky Hockey Club traveled to Youngstown State, coming away with an 11-1 win to move to 13-6-1-1 (2-0 SECHC) on the season.
The first score of the game went to Aaron Bickle in the first, with YSU then evening it at one apiece. Youngstown State would not score again as Eric Williams continues his great play in the crease this season, blanking YSU the rest of the way. Beck Schultz would score to give the Cats a 2-1 lead going into the first intermission of the game.
Kentucky would get a penalty early in the second, but while on the penalty kill, Beck Schultz would get a short handed goal for his second of the game and give Kentucky a 3-1 lead. Mike DeAngelis would score for a 4-1 UK lead, then Cory Day would net back to back goals for a 6-1 lead at the end of two periods.
Like the first goal of the second period, Kentucky would get a short handed goal for a 7-1 lead. This time it was Aaron Bickle for his second goal of the game. Schultz would net his 3rd of the game to complete the hat trick and give UK an 8-1 lead. This week’s player profile, Jimmy Kasch would then score a goal for a 9-1 lead. This goal, paired with the assist on the Bickle short handed goal to start the period, gave him 50 career points in 50 career ACHA games. Congratulations to Jimmy on this achievement.
Last week’s player profile, Max Boss would score to give the Cats a 10-1 lead. Beck Schultz then added goal #4 on the evening, and finishing off YSU by a score of 11-1.
