In another weekend series of hockey the Jacks offense exploited the Iowa State University-JV goalie to add two wins to their record. The Jacks won Friday night 7-1 and 10-4 on Saturday.

“They call winning games like that winning ‘ugly’, and these two could definitely fall in that category,” said coach Marty Schipull.

Early in Friday’s game, nine penalties were handed out. Playing most of the period 4-4, the Jacks ended the period 2-0 after two goals by Trevar Selch.

In the second period the teams added twelve more penalties to the total. The Jacks were able to take advantage of some of Iowa State’s mistakes converting on two power plays with a goal by Adam Nelson and another by Selch.

After a short-handed goal was added by Adam Murphy, the Jacks added two more to the total, one of those again by Selch totaling four for the center.

After the dust settled the Jacks took the game 7-1 but lost two players to disqualifications.

Saturday the Jacks had the game wrapped up by the end of the second period 6-2. Seven Jacks scored on the Iowa State goalie before he was ejected for fighting with 9:50 left in the game.

Sitting 8-4 at the ejection, the teams played five on six for the remainder of the game. The Jacks add two more goals to finish the game 10-4.

This weekend conference opponents Des Moines Collegiate Hockey Club will play at the Larson Ice Arena Saturday, Nov. 23, at 8 p.m. and on Sunday at noon.
