Squirt Panthers Shut Out Chiefs -- Stout Defense Gets Cats Off The Schneid
In the third period, Coach Schultz changes his lines around and featured Sliwinski for much of the frame. Jones had another quality chance, while goalie Joseph Schmid (14) made a spectacular but questionable on-his-back save to hold the Chiefs scoreless. On that play, Schmid took three consecutive shots, but could not seem to find the puck after the third rebound. The referee blew the whistle, believing Schmid was lying on the puck, and about a second later the Chiefs shoveled it in. But the call was a no-goal, and the shut-out continued. Finally, with only three minutes left to play, Holy’s persistence paid off as he slammed in a 10-footer from the right side, sealing the 3-0 win.
“I love a shut out,” defenseman Steadman was heard telling the press after the game. “Offense is flashy, but defense wins championships.”
