Thunder Hockey Earn Split to Close Fall Semester ActionPosted on: Nov 30, 2015
This past weekend the Thunder Men's Hockey team closed out the first semester with a set of games against the Red Deer College Kings. On Friday night in front of a loud contingent of Concordia fans at Bill Hunter Arena, the Thunder jumped out to an early 3 to 0 lead on two goals from Phil Dillon and another from Tyler Stevenson. However RDC fought back and tied the game on a controversial goal that appeared to slide underneath the side of the net. The Kings would take the lead into the 3rd and despite a good effort from Concordia the game would end in a 6 to 3 loss for the Thunder.
On Saturday the Thunder travelled to Penhold and once again jumped out to an early lead on a goal from Fil Kejdana. After Red Deer tied the game in the second period, the Thunder responded with a Chase Fallis goal which would prove to be the game winner. The final score ended 2 to 1 and Connor Dobberthien got the win in net with 39 saves. Beau Ferbey played his final game for the Thunder capping off an excellent 5 year career. Beau will be moving into the work force and the team would like to offer him best wishes as he moves on after earning his Bachelor of Management Degree.
"It has been a positive first half of the season for Concordia as they have nearly equaled their point total from all of last season," beamed Head Coach Dan Glegloff. "Going into the break the Thunder sit only 2 points back of a playoff spot and look forward to continuing to grow as a team after Christmas. Thanks to all of the fans and students who have supported the team this year. The players and coaching staff are looking forward to more good times in 2016!!!"
