The MCRHL Regular Season kicked off this morning at MPX Elite Fitness in Homer Glen, IL. There was lots of great DII and DIII action all throughout the day. Henry Ford, making their NCRHA debut, face-offed against Miami to get the games started. Miami’s Braeden Bowra fired home the first goal of the 2017-18 season. Tied 1-1 after 2 periods, the teams started trading goals in bunches. Shawn Lienhardt’s tally with just over a minute remaining proved to be the game winner for Miami.
Henry Ford recorded their first win later in the day against Michigan Tech in a 5-4 overtime win. Both, Michigan Tech’s Connor Spence and Henry Ford’s Dominic Stankiewicz, were outstanding in net along the way. Eric Holgate had the game winner.
As the day went on, it became clear that this season the DII race will be tight. Four games are on Sunday’s slate. You can follow the games here: http://mcrhl.com/schedule.php?event_id=1927
