Joe Bussard/Tyler Stitt lead Xtreme to 7-2 win over Short Handed Yeti
The Xtreme is off to a 3-0 start after defeating the Yeti 7-2 at 6:00 Monday. The Yeti, playing ironman, kept it tight through two periods before the Xtreme pulled away in the final frame with three unanswered goals to close the game. The teams battled to a 1-1 stalemate in the first period before the young guns from the Xtreme made their mark. AJ Cebulskie gave his team a lead off with a shot from 5 feet away off a nice feed from Tyler Stitt. Stitt added a goal shortly after when Chad Walter made a cross court feed to the second year standout.
Joe Bussard tallied the second of his team high three goals (he also added an assist) to start the third period before Phil Pompeii answered with an end-to-end rush to make it 4-2. But any hopes of a comeback were squashed by three more Xtreme goals to close the game.
Clint Lingenfelter stopped 23 of 25 shots for the Xtreme while Adam McKinley was extra busy in the opposing net, turning aside 40. The Yeti fall to 1-1-1 on the season and will take on the Colonials next week. The Xtreme will square off against the Hooligans.

Calvert-Schindler Connection leads Knights to 5-3 win over Hooligans
The Knights are more known for playing in high scoring fast paced games, but last night, they proved that they can win with defense as well. In a postgame interview, Jason Iseler credited the Knights for their strong defensive effort and thought their speed made the difference in the game. The game was tight the whole way, with each team scoring a goal in the 1st period (Cory and Andy). The 2nd period saw the Knights go ahead 3-2 with 2 more goals from Andy Calvert. Eric Llewellyn would add a goal for the Hooligans in between Calvert’s goals. The game remained tight in the 3rd period, only this time, it was Kurt Schindler who did the damage to the Hooligans, adding 2 goals, including an insurance goal late in the game to preserve the win for the Knights. Cory Schuckers had 2 goals and an assist to lead the Hooligans, while Eric Llewellyn added a goal and 2 assists. The Knights were led by the Calvert-Schindler connection, which accounted for all 5 Knights goals. James Nelson kept the Hooligans in the game making 22 saves on the night, while his counterpart Todd Schickling made 20. In his postgame interview, Jason Iseler didn’t think the Hooligans tested the Knights rookie goalie enough. The Knights are now 2-1 on the season and will look ahead to the Lazers next Monday night, while the 1-1 Hooligans will take on the Xtreme.
