On Wednesday Jan. 25, the Grosse Pointe South Boys Hockey team beat Port Huron Northern 5-2 at Port Huron.

 

The game went back and forth the whole first period, yet no team could put the puck in the back of the net. Port Huron Northern got on the board first, scoring just two minutes into the second period. The Blue Devils finished the period off strong though, getting back to back goals first by Jakob Fillmore ’17 then by Jack Flynn ’17.

 

The third period was all South from the start with the Blue Devils scoring three goals, two by Connor McKenna ’19, and putting them up 5-1, not stopping until Port Huron was in the rear view mirror. After Port Huron scored one last goal with a minute left in the game, the Blue Devils left Port Huron victorious.  

 

“That first goal was big,” Fillmore said, “it tied up the game and put us in a position to keep the momentum going.”

 

After that first goal, the boys ran and never looked back, scoring four more unanswered goals, crushing Port Huron Northern players and fans.

 

The game was very physical from the start, which added to the Blue Devils’ challenge of winning this game on the road.

 

“They were definitely laying the body out there,” Patrick Bourke ’17 said, “we had to just keep playing our game and keep our heads up.  We were confident we could come out of here with the win and not have to play to their level.”
This win advances the boys hockey team to 18-5-5 on their season.  Their next contest is at home against Wyandotte Roosevelt, so come out and support the boys hockey team in their quest for victory.
