Ohio bounced back from its first season loss with a 4-2 victory over Maryville Saturday. The comeback was led by an increased effort on defense and consistent scoring across all three periods.
Here are the numbers to know:
Ohio garnered a hefty 19 total penalty minutes, with 10 occurring in the second period. Despite ample chances, Maryville only capitalized on one opportunity to score on the power play.
The Bobcats only took 25 shots on goal against the Saints, one of their fewest shots on goal all season. The Saints didn’t put up much more, as they had 30 total shots on goal.
Ohio goalie Max Karlenzig had a save percentage of 93% Saturday. Karlenzig has been a consistent defensive performer for Ohio, and his ability to hold off Maryville’s 14 shots on goal in the third period showed his talent.
The Bobcats scored two of their four goals in the second period, including the go-ahead goal scored by JT Schimizzi. On the other hand, the Saints scored their only two goals in the first period.
