Though the outcome wasn’t what the Rockets had hoped for, they left everything out on the ice last night in their first round Baron Cup match up against Amherst.
The Rockets held the Steele to just two goals in the first two periods of play. They were able to keep the pucks to the outside causing trouble for the Steele to work their cycle out of the left corner.
The 3rd period started with Jake Gaudino ripping a shot from the left circle passed Amherst goalie to make it a 1 goal game with 13 minutes left. Amherst answered back when a non-goalie interference call allowed them to retake a 2 goal lead. From then, a parade to the penalty box caused the Rockets to surrender an additional 3 goals.
Rockets goaltender, Sean Gulley, kept Bay in the game making 33 saves on 39 shots.
Thank you to Bay Seniors Will Kenney, Chris Eifert, Jake Murray, Jackson Polhkamp and Jake Gaudino for a great regular season, tournaments and playoffs.
