With one game left to play after Monday night’s 6-2 victory against the Wrong Stuff, the Screaming Squirrels have just about wrapped up third place – and have a shot at second place – heading into the playoffs. The Squirrels have won seven of their last eight, the one loss coming on a day in which several players couldn’t show up.
In the Resor rink Monday, Don Marks netted two goals, and Rob Myers added a short-handed tally in the first period. The teams skated to a scoreless second period, but the Squirrels stepped it up again in the third. Only nine seconds in, Myers scored again. Only 15 seconds later, Tony Richelsen wristed in a shot from the point. The Wrong Stuff got a pair of power play goals later in the period. Then Richelsen netted another short-handed goal with about a minute to play in the game.
Drew Thiemann faced 15 shots in net as the Squirrels put up 25. Along with his two goals, Myers finished with two assists. The Squirrels played without Brian Jackson, Adam Hughes, Jon Magi, and Charles Wolstein.
The final game of the regular season in Thursday, at 10:40 p.m. in Logsdon, also against Wrong Stuff.
