Bedford — The 2017-18 Goats are a really good hockey club. There’s a reason they finished the season 16-1-3 and the number one seed.
With a 7-2 victory on Wednesday night against the visiting Bedrica Indianeers, The Goats move on to play next Tuesday, and the Indianeers are done.
Goaltender Vincent Lee continued his winning ways by making 22 saves out of 24 shots. He had a stellar season finishing 13-1-3.
Defenseman Rob Klein made his presence known. As soon as he took the ice he made an immediate impact by giving his team the early 1-0 lead. Klein played extremely well on defense and finished the game with a goal and two assists.
After one period of hockey, it was a one-goal game.
The Indianeers came to life in the second period. Bill MacDonald put the team on his back and scored two goals. His first goal came at the end of a power play. Thomas Malone (17) was called for a trip which gave the Indianeers some momentum.
After two periods of hockey, it was a 3-2 game with the Goats maintaining the lead.
Colin Casey, who was The Goats leading goal scorer all season long with 25 goals, found the back of the net just a minute into the third period to give his team a 4-2 lead.
The Goats would put up four goals in the third period, including an empty-netter in the final seconds of the game to pull away and get the victory.
