Cadets Crush Wagner
Posted on October 22nd, 2016

HACKENSACK-NEWARK, NJ - Wagner became ARMY WEST POINT's second weekend sweep victim in a home-and-home series. The West Point squad kicked off its home schedule in Hackensack with an 8-6 win in a competitive affair that ramped up each period.

A 1-1 first period featured a goal by early-season freshman sensation Max Krieg, who then notched a second goal in the second as part of a three-goal onslaught by the Black Knights. Firsties Tyler Rettke and Mitch Deridder found the back of the net to give ARMY WEST POINT a 4-1 lead. After the second intermission, Wagner scored three of the game's next four goals to draw within a goal. Firsties Drew Lysakowski and Jake Brown kept the cadets ahead and secured the win.

The Sunday tilt was a lopsided match at Newark's Prudential Center, home of the New Jersey Devils. The Black Knights bedeviled Wagner, jumping out to four-goal lead through two periods, 4-1, then closing out the victory with two third-period goals. Goal scorers included Cory Miller, Chris Callahan (2G), Matt Ouellette, Mitch Deridder, and Max Krieg.
