After a tough loss to Barrington on Saturday, the JV Icecats looked to get their first win of the season Monday against a beatable Maine team.

The Icecats came out strong, getting a few close chances earlier in the game off of solid play from Icecats wingers Blake Dobson, Adam Cox, and center Tyler Garrett. Dobson, who had two breakaways on the night,  just couldn’t find the twine, while Cox and Garrett stepped up their play considerably giving added spark to the Icecat offense.

The Icecats D kept up its stellar play led by defensemen Matt Kalish and David Quinn, keeping Maine off of the scoreboard until late in the first when Maine scored off of a shot which hit a Icecat defender’s stick.  Maine put another goal on the board later in the second when a Maine winger snuck behind the Icecats defense and put a rebound behind goalie Nick Draths.

Draths continued his outstanding play between the pipes stopping 32 shots throughout the game, and coming up big in clutch moments with his quick glove. Draths, who is only a freshman, is 7th in the league in goals against average and his stellar play has kept the Icecats in many of their games throughout the season.

The lone Icecats goal was tallied late in the game by freshman David Vieth, who scored on a slapshot that trickled by the Maine goalie. The goal was Vieth’s first high school goal.

On another note, coaches Dave Schlaggeter and Mike Degeorge named freshman Scott Miller junior varsity captain, with junior Kalish and freshman Patrick Quinn as assistant captains. Congrats to all three.

JV’s next game is tomorrow, 11/11 8:40pm at Glacier against the archrival Carmel Corsairs.
