Marian men’s hockey shuts out Bethel

November 27, 2017

Marian University men’s hockey (5-2-1, 2-2-0 NCHA) closed out a four-game stretch of non-conference games shutting out Bethel 2-0.

Senior Derek Thorogood closed out the weekend having a hand in every Sabre goal as he would score on the power play and assist the second goal of the day.  His power play goal came at the 13:51 mark, his seventh goal of the year, with assists to fellow senior Hunter Stewart and freshman Dondre Watson.  The goal came just eight seconds after the Royals were called for a slashing penalty.

Freshman Alex Cheveldave then lit the lamp for the first time in his career at the 9:31 mark with assists to Watson and Thorogood.

For the second consecutive Saturday game, sophomore Hunter Vorva recorded a shutout stopping all 19 shots he faced.

Marian held a 30-19 advantage in shots led by a game-high four shots from senior Braden Crone.  Crone also had a good game in the face off circle where he went 9-4, while Thorogood also recorded nine face off wins.

Marian returns to NCHA action when they host Finlandia Friday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. from Blue Line.
