With a 4-1 win against Plum on Monday night, the Baldwin boys hockey team improved its record to 7-6-1 to maintain a playoff spot.

Three of the goals were scored by senior Nate Breisinger and juniors Jason Kavulic and Zack Pender. The fourth goal came from an own goal by Plum on their empty net, credited to senior Ross Zofcin.

“We’ve been playing better lately and I feel that although we won, last night we really lowered our level of play and should have won by a greater margin,” senior captain Nate Hobson said. “We have tougher games coming up and we need to continue winning, so last night’s effort won’t get us by.”

Junior defenseman Paul Zmuda was injured in the effort. Also, two Baldwin players were suspended after a fight in the third period.

After facing some adversity in their recent win, the Highlanders look to continue to add to their winning streak against Moon next Monday night.“All of this will be covered in practice this week and we will be prepared for our next game,” Hobson said.
