The Rosemount Irish broke open a close game with a five goal outburst in the second period on their way to an 8-2 win over the Wildcats last Friday at the Wildcats’ holiday tournament at Chisago Lakes Arena. The Irish built a 7-0 lead before Brandon Caudill’s power play goal ruined the Irish shutout four minutes into the third period. Andrue Trelstad and Justin Lawry assisted on Caudill’s goal. Tate Swanson scored another power play goal for the Wildcats later in the period, assisted by Cooper Hoheisel and Caudill. The Irish outshot the Wildcats 43-16 for the game.

The Wildcats played a much more competitive game against the Proctor Rails in last Saturday’s tournament game, but still ended up on the short end of a 4-1 score. The Rails scored twice early in the first period before Adam Hanson scored halfway through the period to pull the Wildcats within one. Justin Lawry and Jace Meierhoff assisted on Hanson’s goal. But the Rails got that one back just over a minute later to push their lead back to two. Proctor added a goal in the second period and turned the lead over to the defense, who allowed the Wildcats just six shots in the third period. Shots were nearly even for the game, with the Rails having a 29-28 advantage.
The Wildcats (0-2) will take on Legacy Christian Lions at Schwan’s Super Rink (Rink #5) in Blaine this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. And next Tuesday, December 6 they will head up to the Mora Civic Center to play the Mustangs at 7:30 p.m.
