Baldwin’s varsity ice hockey team lost against Upper St. Clair 3-2 in overtime on Thursday night. 

Goals were scored by sophomore Tanner Plinta and senior Xander Aul. Assists came from seniors Nelson Buys, Dom Trimbur, and Joey Antonio.

Senior Eddie Nowicki stopped 28 of 31 shots he faced. He was one of Baldwin’s standout players, senior Lorenzo Shipley said.

“Tanner Plinta played a really good game, and Edidie stayed with us all game too,” Shipley said.

This is only Baldwin’s third loss in the past three seasons. 

“I think we started off slow,” Shipley said. “We let up two goals in the first, and we can’t start like that.” 

Upper St. Clair is good, but Baldwin has a lot of talent, he said.

“I don’t think they’re a better team,” he said. “They just took advantage of a slow start.” 

The next game will be next Thursday at 7 p.m. against Seneca Valley at Ice Castle.
