Saturday night was the home opener for the Grandville hockey team, as they took on Portage Central. The first two periods of the game proved to be a challenging back and forth battle that saw numerous penalties, and the Dawgs down 2-1 heading into the third period. Fortunately the Dawgs turned it on in the third, scoring three unanswered goals to win 4-2.
Leading the scoring for Grandville was Ryan Wolfe with his first two goals as a varsity player. Scoring the other two goals were Matt Northouse and Jake Baum. Gaining assists on the night were Gianni Vitali, Mitch Parsons, and Brandon Rozema with two each, and Zach Vanderwel and Thomas Breazeale with one each. Playing strong between the pipes was Myles Madden.
The start to the 2014/2015 hockey took place at Southside Ice Arena as the Dawgs took on Grand Rapids Catholic Central.
Grandville got off to a slow start as they found themselves in a 3-0 hole by the end of the first period. However, the boys fought back to score two goals in the second period to bring the score to 3-2. The third period was another hard fought battle with only one goal being scored, unfortunately it was not scored by the Dawgs. The end result was a 4-2 loss. Overall it was a hard fought battle, and the fan support was awesome.
Scoring for Grandville was Brandon Rozema and Gianni Vitali. Registering assists were Noah Weigle, Mitch Parsons, Matt Northouse, and Nate Cekander. Myles Madden was in the net and made 18 saves on the night.
