  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Falcons score 7 goals against Wilfrid Laurier, dominate Golden Hawks in preseason exhibition game

The BG hockey team took advantage of its exhibition game and scored seven goals against the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks, a university from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

“The exhibition game is a very necessary game,” head coach Chris Bergeron said. “It’s been six weeks of captain’s practice or very limited team skills stuff and they want to hit somebody else.”

The Falcons started the exhibition game with a goal by forward Cam Wojtala 36 seconds after the first puck dropped. Wojtala’s goal was assisted by fellow forward Bryce Williamson.

The second BG goal came from forward Ben Murphy a little more than nine minutes into the game while the Falcons were on a power play. Williamson received another assist on the power play goal, as well as defenseman Ralfs Freibergs.

After the first period, BG’s dominance against* Wilfrid Laurier was apparent as the Falcons recorded 11 shots compared to the Golden Hawks’ three shots during the period.

The two teams were looking to score more goals in the second period and they were more than capable.

The Falcons scored three goals on the Golden Hawks during the second period. The first came from Williamson just less than a minute and a half into the start of the period. He was assisted by forward Dan DeSalvo and forward Adam Berkle.

About a minute later, freshman forward Matt Pohlkamp got the puck into the net, thanks to forward Chad Sumsion and defenseman Jose Delgadillo.

Just more than nine and a half minutes into the second period, the Falcons scored their third goal of the period, this time from freshman forward Pierre-Luc Mercier. Mercier’s goal was assisted by Sumsion, who had two assists in the win Saturday.

Wilfrid Laurier looked to capitalize off the fifth BG goal and got its first and only goal 45 seconds later from center Greg Lamoureux, who was assisted by defenseman Chad Lowry.

BG’s final two goals and highest period shot count (19) came in the third period. Forward Ryan Carpenter got an unassisted shorthanded goal just more than six minutes into the final period. The final goal was scored by DeSalvo and assisted by Copper and Berkle with 7:24 left in the game.

With just more than five minutes left in the game, Berkle and Wilfrid Laurier left winger Greg Cerilli got into a scrum and after Cerilli threw a punch, both of them were sent to the penalty box for the remainder of the game.

All three of BG’s goaltenders saw playing time against the Golden Hawks Saturday night. Tommy Burke started the game for the Falcons and recorded three saves in his 20 minutes of play time.

Tomas Sholl got the most time of the three, spending 30:34 on the ice, which spanned the second and third periods. He recorded four saves and allowed one goal against Wilfrid Laurier. Scott Zacharias spent a little more than nine and a half minutes in goal and recorded one save.

The Falcons begin the regular season with their first weekend series more than fall break in Schenectady, N.Y., against Union College. BG’s regular season home opener against the Ohio State University Buckeyes on Oct. 15 is set to start at 7:07 p.m.
