Eastview Boys Varsity Hockey vs. the Lakeville South Cougars – December 17, 2022

Eastview came up a little short losing 3-2. The matchup with the Cougars lived up to its billing, as one of the toughest tests of the season for the Lightning. The tightly contested 1st period played to a scoreless tie with the Cougars outshooting the Lightning 9-5. Lakeville South opened the scoring early in the 2nd period when an aggressive forecheck resulted in a 1-0 lead at just 25 seconds of the period. Eastview struck back at 1:26 of the 2nd period on an impressive even strength goal when Billy Downs #23 tipped a shot from the point from Logan Opgrand #2 and Graham Ellingson #22 to tie the game 1-1. The Cougars took a 2-1 lead on the Power Play (PP) at 9:06, which ended the scoring for the period. Shots at the end of the 2nd period were 20-13 in favor of Lakeville South. The Cougars scored an even strength goal just 2:14 into the 3rd to make it 3-1, before the Lightning cut the lead to just one goal late in the period at 14:12 on the PP. Brayden Kaldenbach #7 scored on a pretty pass from Tanner Kronberg #17 and Zach Wooten #9. Despite a furious effort by the Lightning to tie the game, the Cougars escaped with a 3-2 win. The Lightning outshot the Cougars 10-5 in the 3rd, and shots ended up 25-23 for the game in favor of Lakeville South. The Lightning fall to an impressive 6-2 for the season and are back in action on Wednesday vs. Gentry Academy at the Apple Valley Sports Arena.
