Jenison Zeeland Varsity hockey played Saturday night against next door rivals Hudsonville Eagles. We saw almost a full roster with a couple players getting back on the ice after while away, welcome back #18 Jacob Wells.
First period the game was back and forth with both teams scoring a pair of goals. Jenson’s goals were scored by Chad Lemke and Skyler Vining with assists coming from Nate Altena and Teemu Hakkala. Brett Batten was in the net all night and in the second period he and the rest of boys in black came to play. Brett and the JZ’s defense with Heyboer, Webber and Voss doing the dirty work let Hudsonville have nothing in the second period and gave the offense time to go to work. Scoring 8 goals before the end of the period created a running clock and the end of the game after two periods. Starting this explosion of offense was captain Chad Lemke who put up a hat trick for the night (3 goals). Then scoring was Teemu Hakkala with a goal and another assist, Hunter Jamieson with a goal and an assist, Tyler Cleveland, Brett Veltema, Clayton Boerigter all with goals and then nailing it shut with a goal and an assist was Ryan Schab . Also assisting in the evening were Joel Clark with four assists, Joey Hasenjaeger with two assists, Ethan Boelkins and another one for Nate Altena.
This game also marked the half way point of the season for the Cat’s, so if you wanted to come out to see the fastest game on the planet you need to make plans. Thank you to all of the fans and the student section! You guys were great
