Marquette Redmen icers spread scoring around in 9-1 victory over Negaunee
MARQUETTE — Marquette spread the wealth around as 13 players had a goal or assist in the Redmen’s 9-1 mercy rule-shortened victory over Negaunee in a high school hockey game played at Lakeview Arena on Tuesday.
Freshman Ethan Phillips led the MSHS scoring with a three-assist playmaker, which includes helpers on both of senior Gaetano Cammarata’s first-period goals.
The opening goal came just 19 seconds into the game as Negaunee freshman goalie Ryan Kerkela faced 56 shots and made 47 saves.
Marquette needed nearly 12 more minutes to make it 2-0 on a shorthanded goal by senior Cooper Anderson, then added two more by Cammarata and junior Evan Kroll to take a 4-0 lead into the first intermission.
The Miners got their goal about 3 1/2 minutes into the second period on senior Jack Mattias’ unassisted tally.
Marquette then scored three more in a span of 5:15 later in the period with two by senior Jakob Peterson and one between those by freshman Joe DeMattia.
The Redmen got their final two tallies in the third, the first by junior Ansel Frost just 37 seconds into the period and the game-ender by sophomore Jack Sides with 6:40 left.
Despite the shortened third period, MSHS held a 22-0 shots advantage in that period.
Senior Hogan Nemetz had two Marquette assists, while teammates Dylan King, Owen Riipi, Andrew Fedrizzi, Dylan Baldwin, Evan Kroll and Ryan Baldwin picked up single assists.
MSHS junior goalie Brennan Hakkola was called on to make eight saves.
Negaunee travels to Houghton on Tuesday, while the Redmen go to Escanaba next Thursday.
