Monroe tops Bulldogs

Posted: Friday, January 21, 2005

The Nikiski Bulldogs dropped a Greatland Conference hockey game to the visiting Monroe Catholic Rams Thursday at the Jason Peterson Memorial Rink in Nikiski.

The Bulldogs stuck with the Rams early in the game as Mike O'Brien answered Monroe's opening goal with an unassisted tally at 10:45 of the first period.

Monroe Catholic regained the lead just before the first intermission, though, and added a third goal early in the second period.

Robert Zinck pulled the Bulldogs back to within a goal, 3-2, with a second-period goal, assisted by Matt O'Brien, but Monroe Catholic answered just 24 seconds later for a 4-2 lead.

The Rams scored the only goal of the third period. Cole Titus and Skylar Hunter had three assists for Monroe.

John Schwenke made 32 saves for the Bulldogs.
