Orchard Lake St. Mary’s is looking to play with more consistency after an up-and-down string of games.
The Eaglets went 2-1 last week, beginning with a convincing 16-2 victory at home over Plymouth on Tuesday, April 5.
Evan Considine scored four goals and had three assists for St. Mary’s (4-2, 0-2 in the Detroit Catholic League), while Mike Koenigsknecht followed with three goals and Nick Parr had two goals and three assists.
Sean DuPack, Garrett Anderson, Spencer McInnis, Chris Koski, Brandon Fagnani, Nick Lewandowski and Paul Graham also each scored a goal for St. Mary’s.
The win was a much needed antidote after the Eaglets suffered a 24-3 loss to Bloomfield Hills Brother Rice, the six-time defending Division 1 state champion, back on Wednesday, March 30.
However, St. Mary’s would suffer its second defeat of the season on Thursday, April 7 at home in an 8-6 loss to Detroit Jesuit.
The Eaglets fell behind 3-0 early in the first quarter and fired 39 total shots at the Cubs, but could not pull off a comeback.
Parr, DuPack, Anderson, McInnis, Considine and Koenigsknecht each scored a goal for St. Mary’s in the defeat.
Steven Keith had seven saves in net for St. Mary’s.
The Eaglets responded two days later when they traveled to Adrian College to face Plymouth Salem, and St. Mary’s came out on top 8-6.
Considine had three goals and two assists to lead St. Mary’s, while Parr and DuPack each scored two goals and Koski scored a goal and had two assists.
Peter Miller made nine saves in net for St. Mary’s, who took on rival Novi Detroit Catholic Central at home yesterday, Tuesday, April 12 after press time.
The Eaglets will travel to East Lansing tomorrow, Thursday, April 14 to face the Trojans before coming home to welcome three-time Division 2 state champion East Grand Rapids on Saturday, April 16.
