Game 9

May 14th, 2015              

    Well, tonight was a bit bittersweet for Drew and many of his Lapeer Storm teammates. Not only was this the last game of the spring season, but it would also be Drew's final game with them before he moves to Florida. Not only was this hard on Drew, but some of the kids that he has played with for a while were pretty emotional about it too. Not to mention the extra members of the team - the players families, who we have come to really enjoy spending time with! We are definitely going to miss all of them!

    Things were looking bleak early though, as the Flags jumped out on top early, scoring the first two goals of the game. After being moved to defense for the early part of the season, Drew has been back at left wing for the past few games. He has been creating some quality scoring chances lately, but couldn't manage to get any behind the goalie. Tonight was different, however, as he netted the first goal for the Storm in the first, making it a 2-1 game. The period ended after another Storm goal and a 2-2 tie. The second period opened with another goal for Drew, giving him two for the game and his team a 3-1 lead. The defense was strong for the Storm in the second, keeping the Flags off the board. Another Storm goal gave them a 4-2 lead heading to the third period. For a while the two teams traded goals, making the score 6-4. Drew managed to find the back of the net one more time in the third, giving him a hat-trick for the game, his first career hat-trick! His final goal pushed the lead to 7-4, which was the final score as this season comes to an end. Great job team, and great job Drew!
