The (FNV) Griffins added to its lead when senior Sean Nowosatka
scored on a rebound off the stick of fellow senior Kenny Kujawa
to build a 2-0 lead at 13:56 of the opening period.
Freshman scoring sensation Brendan Maly
opened up a 3-0 FNV lead with assists coming from Dubuque and Nowosatka at 9:19 of the second period.
Just 33-seconds later, FNV senior defenseman Tanner Hare
followed up with a laser wrist-shot from the point, picking the top left corner to make it a 4-0 game, with an assist from freshman defenseman Spencer Dietrich
at 9:52 of the second period.
Fenton/Linden would not go away, however, and would get on the board with a goal from junior Dylan Conte
with an assist from sophomore defenseman Lincoln Wright
to cut into the FNV lead (4-1) at 4:42 of the third period.
FNV rounded out the scoring when Kujawa lit the lamp with an assist from Nowosatka to make it a 5-1 game at 5:38 of the final period.
Senior goal tender Brendan Schrems
earned the victory for FNV following a stellar night between the pipes, where he allowed just the one goal for the Griffins.
Fenton/Linden will take on the Lakeville Alliance this Wed. night at 7:30 pm at the Polar Palace in Burton, MI., while FNV prepares for a visit to take on the Bay Area Thunder Monday at 7 pm at the Bay County Ice Arena, prior to hosting senior night next Saturday Feb. 17, against the (East Lansing area) East Side Stars at 7 pm at the Saginaw Bay Ice Arena.
