Faribault Boys Hockey Dominates LaCrescent
The Faribault Falcons boys hockey team had a long happy bus ride home from LaCrescent tonight after a 3-1 dominating performance. The Falcons outshot the Lancers 38 to 16 recording double digit shots each period while holding LaCrescent under double digits each period.
Faribault was 1 for 3 on the power play and the Lancers were 0 for 3. 2:48 into the game Leighton Weasler (2) opened the scoring with an unassisted even strength goal. The first period would end with the Falcons up 1-0. 5:23 into the second period LaCrescent tied the game but it wouldn't stay tied for long. Faribault scored 1:25 later on a Zack Slinger (8) goal assisted by Jordan Nawrocki (2) and they never looked back.
Slinger (9) added a power play goal 8:47 into the third period assisted by Weasler (5) and Daniel Drevlow (1).
Junior goalie Jake Dolter improved his record to 3-0 with 15 saves in the game.
The Falcons are 4-1-1 (1-1-1 in Big Nine) and Lancers fell to 2-8. Faribault travels to Mankato West Tuesday. Their last game before Christmas.
After the Holidays they jump back into the conference on January 3 with a home game against Winona.
