Storm shutout Lakeshore Optimist
andrew brethauer march 18th, 2011

The Mooretown Storm scored two late shorthanded goals on route to a 5-0 shutout over Lakeshore Optimist in the Atom division of the March Break Tournament.

The first period held scoreless, as each team had their chances but both goalies were able to stand strong, keeping it shutout despite long chances by each.

In the second period Mooretown opened the scoring Joseph Kraayenbrink found Keaton Ranger alone in front of the Optimist net, and he put it passed Hunder Hendrie to make it 1-0 for the Storm.

Zack Date had a breakaway chance for the Optimist but Braiden Shaw came up big with a save to keep his shutout. This would prove to be a big save as the Storm would come back down the ice on a breakaway. Although Caleb Bourgeois was able to disrupt the play, the puck would still end up on Ranger's stick, as he would wrist it passed Hendrie for his second of the game.

In the third period with the Storm up by two, Lakeshore would press for a goal, but with the puck in their own end, their defence came up big with blocked shots. But the pressure would finally collapse the defence, as a shot of the board goes to Tyson Passingham who finds Travis Nicholson alone in front who beats Hendrie five hole to put the Storm up 3-0.

Lakeshore Optimist looked to finally get on the board with a late period powerplay, but the speed of Mooretown was to much even on the short hand. Brennan Baltzer skated the ice from end to end, dekeing passed Hendrie for a shorthanded goal.

Seconds later, Kraayenbrink would do the same, adding in a second short handed goal as the Storm went on to a 5-0 victory, with Braiden Shaw earning the shutout.
