Maroons Snake Bit By LaSalle, Youth Showing Promise
The Vipers left the Maroons snake
bit handing them a 7-3 loss.
Maddux Rychel, Zach Power, and Dallas Anderson had the Chatham goals.
The young Maroons are showing promise on the ice, despite wins coming a little farther between.
Adrian Stubberfield, a Chatham
product, was all over the ice for the Maroons. He had a power play assist, but also drew a pair of penalties, and was used in all situations, including alongside Chatham’s top line, and one special teams. Stubberfield was part of many of Chatham’s chances.
Underage defender Carson Noble, who played Minor Midget ‘AAA’ last year for the Chatham-Kent Cyclones was another standout. He showed poise with the puck making strong first passes, and also playing a key role on Chatham’s power play. Noble made savvy passes from the blueline with the man advantage and was one of Chatham’s top players throughout the game.
Second year players Evan Wells and Zach Power showed growth in their game. The duo are playing strong hockey on both sides of the puck, and look to be part of Chatham’s emerging young core.
