Historic Hockey in River City!

with one comment

A huge shout out to a couple of Montpelier High girls on the hockey team; Mary Cain and Rachel Ebersole.

First, congratulations to Mary Cain for her outstanding play at the Kreitzberg Arena against Northfield where she endured 77 shots on goal in one game! She stopped 71 of them. She made a historic save in the first period and the puck was snagged by the coaches. It was her 500th save of the season! That’s right, 500th save this season. How long did it take Tim Thomas to get 500 saves while playing in Vermont? Mary’s save percentage is around .910 which is top shelf in any arena.

500th Save of the Season

Second, Rachel Ebersole made one of the sweetest unassisted goals of the season. She weaved through defenders and covered 3 zones of the ice. She approached the net from the left side with a defender on her right shoulder. She used her speed and power to ward off the defender and cut in front of the net to score in the lower right corner – Poetry on Ice!

SCORE! "Poetry on Ice"
