Findlay roundup: Hockey closes regular season with a victory

BOWLING GREEN — Keaton Rider scored three goals as Findlay High School’s hockey team doubled up the Central Indiana Knights club team 6-3 in the Trojans’ regular season finale at the BGSU ice arena Saturday night.
“Great game for a rebound game after the St. Francis loss,” Findlay High coach Craig Perry said. “The Knights were fast and had pretty good skill so we had to play fast to keep up with them.
“I am really proud of this team. No one thought we would win 10 games this year with all the scoring we lost from last year and how difficult our schedule was.”
Harry Hall, Parker Fetterman and Reid Perry added a goal apiece as the Trojans wrapped up the regular season with a 14-11-3 record.
Hall and Blake Grey both recorded two assists while Ethan Franks, Ethan Plesec, Kevin Kuhn and goaltender Storm Woodward had one each.
Woodward saved 22 of the 25 shots he faced. Findlay scored on six of its 28 shots.
“We could have been 20-5 if we played better for about two minutes. We gave up six games this year with less than a minute to go. I am looking forward to the playoffs and we are entering feeling pretty good,” Perry said.
Up next for the Trojans is a 3 p.m. district quarterfinal game Saturday at Tam-O-Shanter as the Trojans will face the winner of Thursday’s game featuring Anthony Wayne and Perrysburg.
