CC takes 3-2 lead into third period

CC senior Rylan Schwartz found his scoring touch, recording his second goal of the night when he popped free in front of the Bemidji State net and backhanded the puck in for a 3-2 lead headed into the third period on  Friday night at Colorado Springs World Arena.

Archie Skalbeck found Schwartz for the second time that night for the primary assist, an important stat to note since this was their first game playing on the same line with captain William Rapuzzi this season.

Hard work behind the Bemidji State net sparked the Tigers to two goals in a 2-2 tie with Bemidji State headed into the first intermission.

Junior Alexander Krushelnyski controlled a 50/50 puck behind the BSU net and sent a diagonal pass out front to Charlie Taft, who shot low. His shot went off Beavers goalie Andrew Walsh’s left leg pad and ended up between the sophomore and the left post, where CC senior Scott Winkler poked the rebound in to make it 2-1 with 4:45 left in the first period.

Schwartz opened the scoring when he took a pass from Skalbeck while in the corner and made a quick move to the front, from where he jammed the puck in between Walsh’s leg pads from by the left post only 2:06 into the game.

BSU’s Jordan George and Danny Mattson had the scores for the Beavers which included Mattson’s power-play goal with only 1:42 left in the period.
