Bluebirds knock off Knights

Print Article

BELOIT - All things considered, Beloit Memorial's boys hockey team would rather win Thursday's rematch with the Janesville Bluebirds anyway.

Visiting Janesville won the regular-season finale for both teams Saturday at Edwards Ice Arena, 5-2, spoiling spoiling Senior Night for Beloit (8-16-0, 2-12-0). The teams meet again at the Janesville Ice Arena on Thursday, however, and survival in the WIAA postseason will be at stake.

The Bluebirds, who went 1-11 to start the season, finished the regular season 6-5 over their past 11 games.

Kyler Kobs had two goals and Dylan McGuire added a goal and an assist as Janesville swept the regular-season series with Beloit. Kobs put Janesville up 2-0 lead in the first period. Beloit drew within one goal, scoring with 35 seconds left in the first period on Casper Clark's goal.

The teams traded goals in the second period. AJ Russotto gave the Bluebirds a 3-1 lead before the Knights answered with Aiden Saunders scoring at 11:42 of the period.

Janesville's Cooper Iverson scored a power-play goal and McGuire added an empty netter with 40 seconds left.

"We just made some bad decisions in the third period," Beloit head coach Kurt Buchs said. "We can play better, but the bous need to make that choice."
