Beal & McDougall Combine for 9 Goals

The Connecticut Gators are back on top of the SCHL Pro-Am division.  Well….actually they are still on top.  They never really leave the top of the standings.

The Gators used a demoralizing first period, opening up to a 5-0 lead en route to a 13-4 win over Beast.

“We wanted to start fast and end it quick.  The only I can think of is like ripping off a band aid” said Scott McDougall.

The night was was highlighted by the return of Joel Beal.  Beal added  1 goal and 5 assists as he created a lot of buzz around the arena.

Beal added “I felt pretty good out there.  My legs were really moving and I was just trying to get the puck to the shooter all night.”

McDougall capped off the night with an epic 8 goal performance to bring his career Gator goal total to 600!!!

McDougall and Leitch Combine for 9 Goals

It should be a rule or something.  Don’t take the first shift of the game off, the Gators will score on it’s first shot.

Oooops. 1-0 lead 19 seconds in.

Like I said, it should be a rule.  All it did was start the engines of Scott McDougall and Bryan Leitch as they combined for 9 goals and 12 assists.

Bryan Leitch

“It seems like we have tried everything to let these guys know.  From posting lineup cards with current statistics, to online posts, and even pictures of us with the Cup.  The Gators will always be ready to go, regardless who is in net and how big the roster is” said Jon Bellonio.

The Gators are now 2-0 early in the SCHL Pro-Am Summer 2017 season and have an early lead on the scoring championship.

“We tried to keep it simple tonight and only score when we needed to.  There were a few open net opportunities that were strategically placed to the side of the net” added Keith Buehler.

Rookie goalie back up Sean Keegans made his Gators deput and pushed aside 31 shots.
