AMERY – That first win of the 2019-2020 season was elusive.
The WSFLG boys co-op hockey team concluded the season without finding it, while Amery easily spotted a trip to the second round.
In the first-round matchup on Thursday, the Warriors brought a quick end to the Blizzard’s postseason with a 15-0 home win to advance to the second round. Amery scored 11 goals at even strength, two on the power play and two shorthanded in the win.
The Warriors posted four goals in the opening period, all at even strength. They added two more early in the second period before the Blizzard got their second power play opportunity of the game. However, the Warriors successfully killed the penalty while scoring two goals to take an 8-0 lead near the midway point of the game.
With its first power play, Amery made good with a goal and added another with the skater advantage after WSFLG was called for its second penalty of the period. The Warriors eventually took an 11-0 lead into the third, where they added four more goals at even strength.
This was Amery’s third win over the Blizzard this season and the Warriors held a 35-2 scoring advantage in the sweep.
Cashton Kapp made 37 saves for WSFLG, which finished the season with a 0-19 overall record.
