With the locker room getting fired-up pre-game, the players all agreed this was their change to get their revenge for their first loss of the season to the Elmbrook Eagles at home 1-0.
It was on the Elmbrook Home ice at The Ponds of Brookfield where the Ice Lynx 10U girls enacted their revenge. Playing from behind most of the game, the Ice Lynx took advantage of 2 goals late in the game to come up with the 3-2 win. Stellar defense and a goalkeeping performance that saw 10 saves made the difference and the Lynx were able to hold on to their 3-2 lead, and advance their record to an overall 3-2.
Goals from the Ice Lynx came from Bryn Schairer, (1st period) Asst from Brinley Fortney, and third period (unassisted), and scoring her first as a Squirt (10U) Harper Vlasik. Harper's goal (unassisted) tied the game and sparked the charge that led the Ice Lynx to victory.
The Ice Lynx takes on the Lake Country Girls Coop from Arrowhead next weekend on Saturday November 23rd at 12:00 PM. This will be the first match-up for these two teams this season.
The Washington County Ice Lynx 10U Girls team put up a strong showing this last weekend, winning both of their games in convincing fashion.
Saturday's game had them matched up against the Ozaukee Ice Dogs 10U -B team. Goaltender Gwen was a brick-wall, stopping all but one of their shots on goal. The Defenders played dominantly keeping the puck inside the Ozaukee Zone leading to a 6-1 victory. Scoring their first goals of the season were F-Emma Bruening, C-Jillian Croasdaile, C-Bryn Schairer, C-Eva Lemmer, and F-Julia Jilling. Coach Mark Schairer only had this to say after the game, "That was awesome."
Sunday's matchup put the Ice Lynx against the Fox River Freeze 10U-B team. This B-team has a few first-year skaters that were aged 12, but that didn't stop the Ice Lynx from clawing their way to a 4-0 shut-out victory. Scoring their first goals of the season were Corah Pouzar and Jacie Smith. Gwen recorded her first shut-out in between the pipes. The win was a dominant one and saw the Ice Lynx out-shooting the Freeze 17-1. "It was a real team-victory. Everyone skated well, passed the puck, and took shots. It was fun to watch," one fan was quoted after the game. "We should have the Squirt boys come watch these girls play. They could stand to learn something from them," another dad said. If the Ice Lynx can keep this vibe going into travel season, they're going to be really exciting to watch. Congratulations on the 2-0 weekend Ice Lynx!
It's that time of year again! Hockey season is finally underway for our 10U Ice Lynx Girls hockey team. November 3rd was the opening game for the Lynx's 2019-2020 campaign against the Elmbrook-Waukesha combined girls team. Despite an early first period goal in the first 4-minutes of play, the Ice Lynx came roaring back for the entirety of the game.
Evenly matched on both sides of the puck, the Ice Lynx out-shot the Elmbrook team 10-4. For all 3 periods, the Ice Lynx defense kept the Elmbrook team out of their defensive zone and on the right side of the blue-line. Centers Eva and Bryn were able to generate some good scoring opportunities, but none were able to get over the goal-line to tie it up. Mites, Julia and Harper, showed great effort and played well in their first squirt games.
Overall, the game was great and well-played by all. There were no penalty minutes served by either team. Coach Mark had this to say after the game, "Strong defense and hustle from our forwards - it’s hard to fix when they did everything we said. Now it’s just fine tuning. I am very excited." Assistant Coach Eric Fortney commented, "There was great positioning, hustle, passing and shooting. The few mistakes that were made will get better with game experience. The girls gave 110% and we couldn’t have asked for anymore from them!"
Next up for the Ice Lynx is the Ozaukee Ice Dogs 10UB team on Saturday, Nov. 9th at 10:30 AM at the KMIC in West Bend, WI.
