MIAA JV league game versus St. Paul's hits the legendary Mimi DiPietro Ice Rink in Patterson Park on Thursday evening. Fresh off their best team practice of the year, the Ice Cards come out attacking quickly with a snipe from senior Kyle Epple netting his first goal of the season. Shot was great, celebration was questionable as the Hall bench was trying to figure out if he was stung by a bee or playing the banjo. Matt Meyers, Mason Gage, & Caleb Fisher would also add goals. Top two forward lines would battle for scoring supremacy as Zach Dooley & Christian Ford would each add two goals in the 8-2 Hall victory.
Joe Ketchen continues to shine in the pipes picking up another hard fought MIAA victory for the Ice Cards placing them at 3-1 in division standings.
Long John Silver's Shrimp Basket Player of the game: #25 Brendan Connell Solid forecheck & backchecking from the gritty assistant captain who added two assists. More importantly prior to game, was combing the rink for estranged pucks. A solid effort, adding 6 more to the team bag.

Joe Ketchen's 31 saves kept the red & gold in the game to match the high powered & dominate offensive play of the Spartans. Goals by Dooley, Johnson, & a pair from Heseltine capped the scoring for the Cards. Christian Ford & Peter Castaldi added two assists as well. The coaches dug deep on the bench to get a bit more aggression on the break outs, freshman Mason Gage would answer the call by throwing his body all over the ice making sure each Spartan knew what just hit them.

Calvert Hall's JV Ice Cards come out firing & beat Gilman 14-1 Thursday at Ice World. Hat trick by sophomore assistant captain Christian Ford lead the Hall in scoring. Total team effort on the score sheet as all contribute to the offense. Hats off to two newcomers to hockey world freshman Caleb Fisher & senior Matt Meyers pick up their first goals in a Calvert Hall uniform. Nic Heseltine prooves that forgetting your helmet is not such a bad thing. Borrowing a rather larger helmet from teammate Caleb Bright, Heseltine would bury two goals in his new bucket.
