Cougars Can’t Brave the Storm

Saturday night brought the highly anticipated contest between the TABC Storm and the Frisch Cougars varsity hockey teams. Fans from both sides filed in, and by the time the face off dropped it was standing room only.

Both teams came out strong, but it was Daniel Levy who wrapped it around and shoved the ball in the net to give the Storm the first lead of the game. After some more back and forth play and power plays for both teams, the period ended 1-0.

In the second period, Frisch was able to put the pressure on and tie the game at 1, on a shot by Bryan Alter. After drawing a penalty, TABC was able to capitalize on the power play as captain Shua Naor buried a shot on a pass from Daniel Levy to give the lead back to the Storm.

TABC came out flying in the third period, starting with the first shift, when Naor scored his second goal of the game making the score 3-1. Shortly thereafter, Frisch defenseman Johnny Newman rifled a shot three quarters court to the back of the net as a Frisch player was coming out of the penalty box. However the goal was disallowed as the player was still offside when the shot was taken.

TABC capitalized on the very next shift as it was captain Ari Fuchs who was able to bat a ball down in the middle and score, to extend the lead to three. Right after the six minute mark it was three-year varsity senior Sam Eisenstadter who scored his first goal of the season off the face off; this put the game away with the score now 5-1. Frisch was able to put up another one late, on a goal by Sammy Wietchner. Tremendous goaltending was seen by TABC senior Shua Beilin. TABC is now 5-0 and holds the top spot in the West. TABC travels to SAR Tuesday night to face a Sting team that’s 4-1.
