Timber Creek Wins Pink and White Game Over Olympia 13-11

Written by Lee Roggenburg on . Posted in .
Monday evening Timber Creek traveled to Olympia to play the second annual “Pink and White” game. Before the game there was a great ceremony as players from both teams escorted family members and friends down the survivor’s walk to celebrate those who had won the battle against the breast cancer.  There was a moment of silence in remembrance of those who had passed away as a result of disease.  The big moment came when a check for $8000 was presented to MD Anderson. Once the ceremony was over and the game began the warm and fuzzy feelings were set aside and a back and forth slugfest began.  Olympia finished the first quarter with a 2-0 lead but Timber Creek got on track in the second quarter outscoring Olympia 5-2 to finish the half with a 5-4 lead.  Solid work at the face off X and good ball movement put pressure on Timber Creek’s defense in the third quarter.  Olympia put up five goals to Timber Creek’s single goal to finish the third quarter with a 9-6 lead and the momentum. The final stanza belonged to Timber Creek.  The Wolves outscored Olympia 7-2 in the final quarter.  Defenseman Kyle Paceckek took over duties at the face off X and was able to neutralize Olympia’s advantage.  He ended the evening with five ground balls and Timber Creek was able to hang on for a tough victory. Scott Turner finished the night with four goals.  Bruce Preeschl, Brock St. John, and Steven Torres each scored twice.  Justin Dionne, Joe Cassato, and Miguel Hernandez each had one each. Wes Collier scored three goals and two assists while Greg Ferone scored three and one for Olympia. Timber Creek improved to 4-3 on the season and host East River (0-5) on Wednesday.  Olympia draws to an even 3-3 and travels to Dr. Phillips (6-2) for a district game on Friday.
