Redmen roll early

By Journal Sports Staff

MARQUETTE – Not knowing what to expect from Ashwaubenon (Wisconsin) in Saturday’s game, Marquette Senior High School head hockey coach Doug Garrow didn’t want the Jaguars to get any momentum.

“We wanted to make sure we jumped on them early and the kids responded,” he said after the Redmen posted an 8-0 mercy rule win at Lakeview Arena.

MSHS (16-6) scored four times in the opening period and coasted from there.

“After the first couple of goals, our team speed took over,” Garrow said.

Joe Phillips led the way with two goals and two assists. His brother, Jake Phillips, added a tally and three assists while their linemate, Jacob Patterson, chipped in a goal and two helpers.

“They led us again,” Garrow said. “They work well together and communicate well.”

Donny Schultz contributed a goal and three assists for the Redmen in a game halted three minutes into the third period due to the mercy tule.

“Donny had a great game,” Garrow said. “He was really good on faceoffs. Two of our goals came after he won faceoffs.

“We really controlled play down low and didn’t give (Ashwaubenon) a whole lot of (scoring) opportunities.”

Marquette goaltender Dylan Sibilisky had to make just seven saves in posting the shutout.

Tanner Carriere, Aydin Frost and Spencer Samppala also notched markers for the Redmen.
