Newtown at Allegany

Newtown wrapped up their double-header weekend with a road trip to Salamanca to take on the Allegany Arrows at the ACC.  With only 15 runners it would be Newtown's second short-benched game in a row.

Starting goaltender Clint Jones was given a well-deserved day off and backup Neil Schindler stepped up for the start.  It was all Newtown from start to finish.  Faceoff man Linden Stevens (1,4) setup multiple odd-man rushes in the first, winning the draws to himself then finding an open teammate cutting to the net.  Bobby DeFreze (5,1) opened the scoring on an underhand skip shot from 10 yards out and would bury four of his five goals in the first.  Returning to his hometown arena for the first time this year, Rudi George (3,2) added two of his three and the period would end 11-1 in favor of the NGE.

Newtown opened the second with a quick goal by Tyler Strassburg (2,2) as Linden Stevens once again won the draw to himself and hit the open man.  It was then the defense's turn to get in on the scoring as Lyle Stevens (3,1), Jake Davis (2,2), and Levi Thomas (1,1) all found the net in the second. Kori Halftown (3,2) put one over the goalie's shoulder from an extreme angle catching and shooting from the goal line extended on one of eight assists from lefty Preston Lay (2,8).  LeRoy Halftown (2,2) scored both of his goals in the second, and the period ended 20-2 Newtown.

In the third the Golden Eagles took the foot off the gas as the running time made the period fly by.  Drew Stevens (1,7) added a goal to his assist total and DeFreze, K. Halftown, and George capped off their scoring with one a piece.  Ross John, Trace White, and Josh Kacprzak anchored the defense that gave up only 2 goals.  After a few merciful crease calls nullified Newtown goals, the NGE were content to just work the clock and leave with the win.  Final score: 25 to 2.  

This week Newtown prepares for another double-header weekend as they take on the Tonawanda Braves at Logan Field in Pembroke Friday night at 8pm and the Six Nations Slash Saturday at 7pm in a home contest at the Gil Lay Arena.
