ADRIAN, Mich. – Senior forward Logan Taylor had her second superb showing in a row tallying five assists and one goal in the 10-0 dismantling of Manhattanville in their first game of two in Arrington Ice Arena for the 2nd Annual Bruiser Bowl.
Junior goal tender Jade Walsh made her first start since the November 8 game against Concordia. Walsh saw limited action only needing to make two saves in two periods as the Bulldogs kept the puck in the Valiants end for the majority of the game. Freshman goal tender Anne Rademacher made an appearance in the final period for Adrian. She made nine saves during her 20 minute shift to preserve the shut out.
The Bulldogs started fast scoring with only 1:10 off the clock in the first period when Lexie Tzafaroglou beat Manhattanville goal tender Megan Messuri to give Adrian the 1-0 lead. Kristin Lewicki would score her first of two goals on the night just a little over four minutes later to extend the lead to 2-0 with 14:39 left in the first period. Adrian would pile on three more goals, scored by Kaylyn Schroka, Sydney Smith and Logan Taylor, to take a 5-0 lead into the first intermission.
Much like the first period, the Bulldogs would start fast scoring just 45 seconds into the period this time with Michelle Jones scoring her first of two goals on the night. Sarah Shureb would score nine minutes later before Jones would put the puck in the net for the second time with 6:38 left in the period bringing the score to 8-0. Brooke Lupi would get in on the action a few minutes later, scoring the final goal of the period on a power play goal pushing the Bulldog lead to 9-0.
In the final stanza, Adrian would play more defensive. The lone goal of the period would come with 7:50 left to play in the game when Lewicki scored on a power play.
The Bulldogs dominated in shots 51-11. Adrian went 2-for-11 (0.182) on the power play; Manhattanville went 0-for-9 on the power play. The Bulldogs also dominated faceoffs, winning 42-of-67.
Adrian will play St. Olaf on day two of the Bruiser Bowl at 4:00 p.m.
