Fast start helps propel Grafton/Port hockey team past Barron/Chetek in opening game of Baldwin tournament
Productive offense and steady defense gave the Grafton/Port Washington hockey team a victory in the opening game of a three-day tournament in Baldwin on Monday.
Adam Schoenfeld, a junior forward, scored twice and had one assist to lead the Ice Hawks past Barron/Chetek, 5-3, at the United Civic Center.
Senior forward Travis Sette scored his team-leading 10th goal of the season for the Hawks, who also got one goal apiece from senior Zach Wilson and
sophomore Tim Grams.
In addition to Schoenfeld, Grafton/Port got assists from Wilson, Grams, Steve Wick, Gavin Lancello and Joe Benson.
Goalie Chase Hollander, a junior, helped preserve the win by making 37 saves.
After jumping to a 2-0 lead in the first period, the Hawks played the Golden Bears even the rest of the way.
Barron/Chetek was outshot, 29-18, in the first two periods but stayed in contention with a 19-11 edge in shots in the final period.
The victory improved the Hawks’ season record to 6-1-1.
Through Monday, Schoenfeld led the team with 18 points, followed by Sette and Wilson with 15 and 11, respectively.
Grafton/Port was scheduled to play Cedarburg at the Ozaukee Ice Center on Dec. 23, but the game was postponed due to injuries and illness. No makeup date has been announced.
The Hawks — a co-op team that includes players from Milwaukee Lutheran as well as Grafton and Port — continued play this week with games at the
Baldwin tournament Tuesday and Wednesday.
Their next game will be Tuesday, Jan. 4, when they host Oshkosh at 5:30 p.m. at the Ozaukee Ice Center.
