Battle of the Woods

Friday, 01.17.2014 / 11:51 AM

In the Ravenwood Raptor’s Jan. 15 match-up against the Brentwood Bruins, the Bruins dominated early and despite a late Raptor rally, fell to Brentwood 2-1.

Brentwood and Ravenwood is one of the most intense rivalries in GNASH. The two schools are less than seven miles apart and the hockey teams have met in the last three state championship games. Many of the players have gone to school together or played on the same travel hockey teams throughout their careers.

In front of their large and vocal student section, the Bruins outworked the Raptors in the first period. With a minute left in the period, Brentwood pinned the Raptors in their zone for over a minute and a half. After a bad bounce off a Raptor skate, Bruins captain Michael Feeney was left wide open and blasted a goal past Ravenwood’s Josh Friedenberger. Less than thirty seconds later, with the Bruins relentless on their attack, Feeney was left open again and knocked the puck out of midair and put it through Friedenberger’s legs. Feeney’s two goals gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead heading into the first intermission.

The Bruins, outshooting the Raptros 15-6 and controlling play, came out flying again in the second period, forcing Raptor Coach Dan Keczmer to use his time out to get his team together.

Following the timeout, the Raptors played like a new team, adding seven shots in the last six minutes of the period. Raptor senior Will Lamb cut the Bruins’ lead in half receiving a short behind the net pass from Sam Riley and knocking it home just before the end of the period.

The hits increased in the third period as both teams tried to energize their student sections and their teammates. Both sides had many scoring chances, but both Friedenberger and Brentwood goaltender Daniel Falls stood tall. With less than a minute to go in the game, the Raptors pulled their goalie, but even with the extra attacker, could not find the back of the net as time expired.

With the 2-1 win, Brentwood jumps to first in the GNASH Tier One division with a record of 9-3-1. The Raptors remain in fourth place (7-5).

Three stars of the game: (1) Michael Feeney (2 goals); (2) Daniel Falls (19 saves); (3) Josh Friedenberger (20 saves).
