The Lightning Conference just wrapped up its fifth week of the 2012-13 high school hockey season and for the first time this season, there is no longer an unbeaten team.
Friday night’s action saw Seminole upset Palm Harbor, 6-3, while Mitchell skated to a 2-2 tie against Jesuit.
Along with Seminole, Bloomingdale recorded their first point of the season, earning a 2-2 tie against Wharton.
Steinbrenner and Berkeley will be looking for their first win next week when action resumes on Friday, November 2.
Palm Harbor’s Hunter Sheehan continues to impress, sitting alone as the league’s leading scorer with 12 goals and 31 points in six games while Newsome’s Jared Goudreau has rocketed up the scoring charts as of late, as he currently sits second in the league with 14 goals and 23 points in five games.
Mitchell goaltender Joey Robinson has had a stellar year so far, earning a 2.00 goals-against average and five victories while Gaither/Sickles netminder Andrew Skora has quietly had a great year, posting a 2.60 goals-against average in his team’s 4-1 record.
The schedule resumes next Friday when every team is back in action. Seminole (1-5) will be looking to build off the momentum from their first win of the season over a powerhouse Palm Harbor squad when they face-off against Newsome (3-3), while Palm Harbor (5-1) looks to get back in the win column when they face winless Steinbrenner (0-5).
