QV downs Meadville in opener

WARRENDALE — The Meadville Bulldogs hockey team opened the season with a 4-1 loss to Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League Class AA opponent Quaker Valley on Monday at the Baierl Ice Complex. 

Scoring for Meadville (0-1, 0-1 Class AA) was Ryan Scheppelmann. Cody Lewis got the assist. 

That was all the Bulldogs could muster against Quakers stopper Collin Rice. 

“We actually did a lot good things,” said Plunkett. We out-shot them 43-22. But their goaltender just stole the game. We had half a dozen point-blank shots, we sustained pressure at times. We couldn’t solve the kid.”

Meadville hosts its first home match of the season on Wednesday, welcoming non-league opponent Harborcreek to the MARC at 7:30 p.m. It will be the Bulldogs’ annual Pink at the Rink, the kickoff of a year-long fundraiser for the Yolanda G. Barco

Oncology Institute.
