Point edges Rapids
Posted by trasher on January 22nd, 2008 in Game Summaries, Uncategorized

When the Stevens Point Area Senior High (SPASH) Panthers face off with the Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln Red Raiders in any sport, you can throw out the records. These two teams compete fiercely like the long-time rivals that they are. On one hand, you had Rapids–second in the Valley with just three losses. On the other, SPASH, the owners of eight conference losses–after winning 32 games in the Valley the previous two years combined.

The contest Tuesday at the South Wood County Rec Center was the 32nd meeting between the teams, and the Panthers won for the 22nd time as they slipped past Rapids 4-3.

The visitors came out with a fire that the hosts could not match and grabbed a 2-0 lead by midway through the first period.

Donny Cousineau started the scoring when he grabbed the puck in his defensive zone and set sail up the left side. He blew past a Rapids defender and ripped a shot from the top of the left circle that beat Rapids goalie Kyle Patterson on the glove side, clinking off the right post and into the twine at the 4:34 mark. Matt Larson notched an assist on the play.

The fast pace continued, but no one would score until a controversial goal at the 9:02 mark.

Larson ripped a high shot from the right point that Marc Gruber re-directed past Patterson for the second Point goal. The deflection appeared to have been initiated with a high stick, and in fact, Rapids coach Pat McDonald argued that point so vehemently that he received a bench minor for unsportsmanlike conduct. The goal stood and Rapids found themselves with a two goal deficit and a fired up opponent.

Neither team would score during the remainder of the period, despite almost one minute of 5-on-3 Rapids power play. The Panthers held a slim 8-6 shot advantage during the stanza.

The first half of the middle period saw no scoring, but then¬†Rapids scored three times in a span of 2:19 midway through to gain a 3-2 lead and to change the momentum from the visitor bench to the home squad’s side.

Rapids (11-4-0, 9-3-0 WVC) scored on the power play on a some nice passing on the point. Nathan Bord worked the puck to the middle, where Shaun Borre caught and quickly slid it to the right point, and¬†Ethan “Lobster” Ambroziak ripped a one-timer past Point goalie Isaac Gorell.

Forty-eight seconds later Rapids tied the score when Ross Klabon beat Gorell from the low slot area. Korey Jaminski received an assist on his nice pass from the right corner.

With the energy flowing in the building, Lucas Van Beck grabbed a loose puck at center ice and beat two defenders and ripped a high shot to give Rapids a 3-2 lead at 10:55.

The momentum would change at the end of the period when Aaron Harstad punched in a rebound to tie the game at three with 14 seconds left in the period. Cousineau and Bobby Gregorich added assists on the play. Rapids held a slight 14-13 shot edge in the period.

Harstad notched his second goal and the game-winner at 4:42 when he poked under Patterson’s pads and knocked in the loose puck before the whistle blew. Zach Graham received an assist on the play.

Rapids would work hard in an effort to turn the tide, but despite the pleadings of the home crowd, came up a little short.

Tyler Hanzlik ripped a shot off Gorell’s mask with 3:30 left.¬†Then, after a time-out with 1:07 left, McDonald pulled the goalie¬†for an extra attacker. Rapids had a couple opportunities, but Gorell stood tall and kept the net puck-free¬†for the last minute or so. Point outshot Rapids 9-8 in the final period.¬†¬†

Gorell stopped 25 shots for Point (6-8-2, 2-8-2 WVC), while Patterson made 26 saves.
