Sylvania Can't Survive Powerful Storm Surge

January 6, 2019

SUNDAY, Lapeer, Michigan - The Sylvania North Stars traveled to Lapeer to take on fellow Little Caesars competitor Lapeer Storm, and the surging Storm squad continued their recent divisional dominance.  With a short-handed squad (Storm missing 3 key players due to illness/injury) the boys put forth one of their best all-around performances of the season.


Giving up an early lead, the Storm knotted things up at one, when Jordan Davis took a Brennan Bernard pass and found the top-shelf mid-way through the first period.  Literally 30-seconds later, Brennan Bernard again found Jordan Davis in the neutral zone and #5 did the work from there, dancing around a couple of North Star defenders and finishing things off with a brilliant deke of the Sylvania goaltender to make things 2-1 after one period of play.


Early in the second, Sylvania scored to tie things up 2-2 on a power-play goal and then took the lead 3-2, when the Storm failed to clear the puck on an attempted break-out.  The period ended with the visitors from Sylvania leading 3-2.


In the final stanza, play was back and forth, with the Storm maintaining a slight edge in chances.  With a little over eight minutes left to play, #14 Zaviero Politowicz stole an errant clearing pass and fired a hard, low wrist shot that was steered aside by the Sylvania goal-tender, but #87 Logan Larsen was driving to the net and buried the rebound home, to put an exclamation mark on a strong game by both players and tie things up at 3-3.  Less than two minutes later, Brennan Bernard won the face-off draw to Jordan Davis and #5 let a quick wrist shot fly off the cross-bar and in, to regain the lead for the Lapeer Storm.  The game would remain 4-3 for the following several minutes with scoring opportunities being thwarted by both netminders.  After an intense scramble in front of the Storm net, #12 Cade Doud was able to poke check it from the Sylvania shooter, and Brennan Bernard won the foot race to the far boards for the loose puck to find #5 Jordan Davis, who put the finishing touches on not only his four-goal performance, but also on the visiting Sylvania North Stars.


Josh Eager steered aside 22/25 shots faced to lead the Storm to victory, and was aided all game long with strong defensive play by Nick Hoffman, Devon Grote, Cory Hall, and fill-in defenseman Dylan Callan.  


The customary Storm hard-hats were awarded to #87 Logan Larsen for his strong play on both ends of the ice, and the aforementioned #88 Dylan Callan for his strong performance along the blue-line.


With the win, the Lapeer Storm find themselves in a 3-way tie for second place within the Little Caesars Howe 3 White Division and finish up regular season action on Saturday against divisional foe Grosse Pointe at the Polar Palace in Lapeer.
