The Eisenhower hockey team improved to 2-0 in the MAC Red and 3-1 overall by defeating LCU 7-4 in a penalty filled game. Ike got the scoring going early again when Param Vyas scored on a power play thirty seconds into the contest. LCU came storming back scoring 2 goals within the next four minutes to take a 2-1 lead. Jack Hammond tied the score for Ike when he stole the puck from a LCU skater deep in their zone and slid the puck through the goalie's five-hole. The score would remain tied through the end of the 1st period.
Ike took the lead back early in the 2nd period when LCU turned the puck over in their zone as Brendan Marshall stepped up to gain control of the loose puck and passed it to Justin Heileg whose hard wrist shot hit the goalie's glove and bounced into the net. Ike then extended their lead after Spencer Solomon and Jaden Blevins helped win a puck battle deep in the LCU zone. Cole Weber came away with the puck and skated through three LCU defenders to then roof a sweet backhand over the goalie for a 4-2 lead. LCU scored on a late power play to make it a 4-3 game at the end of the 2nd period.
Ike extended their lead 5-3 early in the 3rd period when Sam Militello fired a slap shot from the blue line past the goalie. LCU was then able to score by taking advantage of Ike not being able to clear the puck at the end of a long shift to shorten the lead back to one goal. On the very next faceoff, Ike took back all momentum when Michael Mackey won the faceoff to Jaden Blevins who skated the puck through two LCU defenders and buried it for a 6-4 lead. Ike finished off the scoring for the game when Jason Geiger roofed a wrist shot to score on a power play late in the 3rd period.
The Eagles will next take on the Lake Orion Dragons on Friday, December 6th, 6:45pm at Suburban Ice Macomb.
