Exciting Action at Lakeview Arena as the Marquette Redmen Hockey Team (0) Takes on the Escanaba Eskimos (1)

Faceoff in the zone

Marquette, MINovember 29th, 2016 – It was sure to be a tough game for the Marquette Redmen Hockey Team as they did battle with the Escanaba Eskimos. The Eskimos were coming off of an excellent football season, and their size and strength would be difficult for Marquette to overcome. The Redmen won the opening drop, but Escanaba quickly cleared the puck from their zone. Both teams knew it would be a very physical game, and just minutes into the first quarter, a Redmen player flattened an Eskimo in a great, clean open ice hit. Despite Marquette’s best effort, Escanaba put the puck into the net first when the Redmen failed to clear the puck from their zone midway through the period. The Eskimos were having a difficult time on defense, accruing multiple penalties in the first period, and Marquette nearly tripled the number of shots on goal that the Eskimos had near the end of the first period.

First Period Score:
Marquette Redmen: 0
Escanaba Eskimos: 1

Fighting for the puck

Fighting for the puck

The Marquette Redmen once again won the opening draw, but immediately lost control of the puck on a failed dumping attempt. Just a few minutes into the second period, Marquette received their second penalty of the game, but they were able to hold off the Eskimos, returning to full strength without giving up a goal. Both teams were playing some great defense, however, the Redmen continued to outshoot the Eskimos. As the period neared it’s end, Marquette suffered another penalty, but they were able to prevent any more goals before the end of the quarter.

Second Period Score:
Marquette Redmen: 0
Escanaba Eskimos: 1

Escanaba started the final period of the game with lead of a single goal, and they also had the remnants of a power play from the end of the second quarter. The Eskimos were unable to score, but things were getting desperate for the Marquette Redmen, who gave up another penalty with just under nine minutes left in the game. The clean first period was a distant memory as the final quarter wore down for the Redmen as they continued to give the Eskimos penalties in their attempt to make a comeback. Marquette pulled their goalie for the second game in a row, but even that wasn’t enough to even the score and force another overtime game.

Marquette Redmen: 0
Escanaba Eskimos: 1
