On Monday, December 14th, the Red Devils dropped a 5-3 game to DeSmet in their first action since the pause in their season due to COVID-19.

As soon as the puck dropped, it was a very back and forth game.  No one could find the back of the net until Chaminade’s Connor Williamson deposited a shot behind DeSmet’s goalie with 6:20 left in the first period.  CCP held this lead to the end of the 1st period.

The momentum swung early in the 2nd period, as DeSmet’s offense came out of the break on a roll. The Spartans netted 4 unanswered goals, which was a huge momentum killer for Chaminade. At the end of the 2nd, Desmet lead with a score of 4-1.

Chaminade came out firing in the 3rd with two back-to-back goals. The first by Jackson Machrn with 6:43 left in the 3rd and the second by Williamson with 2:50 left. The tables had turned and now it was a one score game.

With Chaminade looking for that tying goal, they pull Luka Myller with a little over 2 minutes remaining. Chaminade’s extra player does not end up working out for them and DeSmet score’s an empty net goal with 1:49 remaining. Chaminade ends up falling to a very talented DeSmet with a final score of 5-3.
