H.S. HOCKEY: Armstrong clips ’Dogs in OT

MEADVILLE — Christian Miller scored with eight seconds remaining in overtime as Armstrong beat Meadville 5-4 on Monday in non-conference hockey action at DeArment Ice Arena.

The goal was Miller’s second of the game and came just moments after having his penalty shot stopped by Meadville goalie Austin Guanzon.

“I feel bad for Austin Guanzon,” Meadville Bulldogs’ coach Jamie Plunkett said. “He had a good game.”

Guanzon made 29 saves on 34 shots.

“He really rose to the occasion,” Plunkett said. “He made a lot of big saves throughout the game and really gave us a shot to win.”

Armstrong took a 1-0 lead with 13:51 to play in the first period on a goal by Hunter Grafton. Meadville came back to tie it with 8:48 remaining on a goal by Bryan Ray. Armstrong reassumed the lead with just over two minutes left in the period on Grafton’s second goal.

That lead grew to two goals in the second period. Miller scored his first goal with 10:40 to play in the period to put Armstrong up 3-1. Bryce Cozzens cut the deficit back to one (3-2). But Armstrong answered just over a minute later to push its lead back to two (4-2).

Meadville wasn’t finished, though. The Bulldogs scored two unanswered goals to close out the second period. Ray scored unassisted with 2:05 left and Steven Shafer knocked home the tying goal with 18 seconds left in the period.

Neither team scored in the third period, sending the contest to OT.

“They’re a good team,” Plunkett said.

Meadville fell to 1-4-0 with the loss.

The night wasn’t a complete loss for the Bulldogs, though. It was “Pink the Rink” night at DeArment Arena, a kickoff event for the “Power Play for Prevention” program, which is designed to raise money for the scholarship program at Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute.

Plunkett said it is unknown how much money was raised last night.

“It was a good event,” Plunkett said. “We had a nice student section turn out. It was good.”

Trevor Johnson, Owen Miller, Shafer and Jeff Millin all had assists for Meadville.

  • Teen doping Survey: Teens experimenting with HGH on the rise

    Michael Guerreri wanted to try human growth hormones so he could look like a pro wrestler. Joe Badalanato hoped HGH would help him become a better football player. James O’Brien figured the drug would improve his fastball.
    The three 18-year-olds from suburban Philadelphia told The Associated Press this week that they bought bottles of HGH online in the past year. Turns out, what they bought was fake.

Poll

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
