With a shortened roster, it would be completely normal for a team to struggle. However, on Monday night against Upper Saint Clair, the ice hockey team defied those standards, winning 5-4 in a shootout at home.

Since Monday night was the Senior Rec dance, most seniors on the team were not at the game.

“It was tiring for sure. … I was going hard after every other shift. It was exciting,” senior said Andrew Golvash, who was one of the two seniors who played.

“The shootout went eight rounds. I scored, and freshman Dom Trimbur scored in the eighth round of the shootout,” Golvash said.

Golvash and the rest of the team remain optimistic for the outlook of the oncoming season.

“The win with a short roster shows that we can be a 10 times better team with everybody there,” Golvash said.

This win boosts the team’s record to 2-3-1. Baldwin’s next game is at home, against Franklin Regional.
