Fond du Lac “Bears” Down on Mosinee
The Mosinee Papermakers played their final game of the regular scheduled season in Fond du Lac Friday night March 28th. The Bears were clearly in hibernation in the first period as they went down 4-0. But the Bear’s never looked down. For Mosinee this was Déjà vu for those who remember the comeback that the Bears made to knock out Mosinee in the GLHL tournament in Madison a couple short years ago.
Early in the second they were down 5 but then they woke up, stopped Mosinee’s passing game, and started scoring. At 8:10 in the second they scored their first goal and less than 2-1/2 minutes later the score was 5-3. With this awakening and the forward momentum they continued with two more scores ending regular play 5-5 with two goals from the power play. Overtime was a slug fest and the Bears came away with a major comeback in front of a large home crowd.
Scoring for Mosinee was Nicholas Kenny with two goals. Eric Vehlow, Brian Bednarczyk, and Max Culp each scored one. Jake Michalski was the goalie and he had 52 saves on the game. The shot count at the end of the first period was 14-24 with Mosinee leading. But at the end both teams had 58.
Mosinee will enter the 2014 GLHL Friday at 2 PM in Fond du Lac.
