On Wednesday evening, Dec. 23, the Rams varsity hockey team traveled to Lake Shore Arena in Muskegon to take on Reeths Puffer High School. Coming off two very close conference losses, the Rams were looking for a little revenge and they got it, pounding Reeths Puffer with 51 shots on goal for a decisive and solid 8-2 win. Reeths Puffer managed only 15 shots on Ram goalie Christian Van Portfliet. This was another true Ram team effort, as 11 of 15 skaters contributed either a goal, assist or both.

A big game was had by sophomore forward Ben Glass as he racked up two goals and two assists for the night. Right on his heels with a great performance came senior forward Alex Fox with two goals and an assist. Also contributing in both scoring and passing was senior forward Noah Greco with a goal and an assist.

Scoring continued to pour in from more Rams as senior forward and team captain Jake Chaffee, senior forward Jon Miller and senior forward Eric Conroy all found the Reeths Puffer net open for scoring with one goal apiece.

Skaters setting up goals with nice assists had senior forward and team captain Robert Perry giving two, and junior forward Eric Datema contributing two as well. Rounding out the assists with one apiece and great efforts were senior defensemen Drake Veitenheimer and Geoff Garman and junior forward Thomas Soupal.
