Boys Varsity Hockey · Eles Scores Game Winner in OT to secure 1st GLHL Victory

Junior Justin Eles scored the last two goals for the Bruins, one came in the 2nd Period and the other came when the Bruins Hockey team needed it the most, in the Sudden Death Overtime Period.  Padua faced GLHL Rival Lake Catholic in a Friday Night showdown and it did not disappoint. Padua and Lake Catholic were tied after the 1st thanks to Junior Ryan Kisel’s goal to get Padua on the scoreboard and tie the game.  The 2nd Period was all Padua as Junior Evan Acino and Senior Justin Eles scored for the Bruins to increase their lead 3-2 as they went into the locker room to rest for the 3rd Period. Lake Catholic scored a goal in the 3rd to force the Sudden Death Overtime.  Junior Justin Eles came through for the Bruins and scored the Game Winner to secure the GLHL Home Victory. Junior RJ Schuette got the win for the Bruins in Goal on Friday Night. Padua will return to the ice this coming Friday as they play host to the States Best Teams in the Annual Padua Hockey Holiday Tournament at OBM Arena.
