Mason Snyder (Sylvania OH) made thirty-three saves on thirty-four shots to earn his sixth win of the year.

“I thought we really turned it on in the second period and were able to get a few past their goalie and that carried us into the third and eventually to the win.” Said head coach Kenny Miller

On Saturday the Cherokee would travel to Lansing to take on the Wolves and fall by a score of 4-3 in a shootout. Byrd and Mitchell would each score power-play goals for the Cherokee in the game. Caleb Williams (Genoa OH) also found the back of the net for Toledo. Weinrich chipped in two assists. Stelmaszak, Gilbert and Maroszek all had one assist.

Chad Simmerman (Sinking Springs PA) made thirty-two saves for the Cherokee in the loss.

“I felt like we outplayed them and just couldn’t find a way to score in the OT, for most of the game we were the better team but we ran into a hot goalie and when that happens its tough to win. All in all it was a good weekend for our guys to get three out of four points.” Added Miller

The Cherokee return home this Friday when they play host to the Metro Jets. Face off is set for 7:00PM
