The Baldwin ice hockey team came away with a big victory Monday over the top team in the division, Greater Latrobe.

The game was back and forth until the final horn sounded.

“We had a two-goal lead to start, then they tied it, and we traded goals until the end after that,” senior Andrew Golvash said.

The team saw a strong performance from junior Noah Fischer, with his two goals helping in the victory.

“Noah played great. He was all over the ice making plays,” Golvash said.

The team did struggle in one department: penalties.

“We had four minor penalties. Latrobe was able to score off two of them and it gave them an advantage,” Golvash said.

The game was won after a goal by senior Ross Zofcin with four minutes left in the game.

“It was a dump-in play that was misplayed by the goalie and went in, but a goal is a goal,” Golvash said.

Golvash said the victory gives them momentum for the next game and the rest of the season.

“We know we can compete with the best. We just need to string more wins together to make a playoff run,” Golvash said.
