The ice hockey team on Thursday lost its second straight game, falling to Seneca Valley 2-1 in overtime. 

The only Baldwin goal scored was by junior Joey Stanick. The assist came from senior Dom Trimbur. 

Eddie Nowicki stopped 27 of the 29 shots he faced. 

“We had a rough first period and that kind of took over the game from there,” senior Lorenzo Shipley said.

“We need to do whatever we can to get out of this losing streak right now. We need to score more and play better team defense,” Shipley said.  

Senior Carson Kress said even though the Highlanders lost, it doesn’t mean they played poorly. 

“It wasn’t a bad game in my opinion. They got an early goal and we came back to tie it,” Kress said. “Anything can happen in OT and we just couldn’t get a bounce.” 

This is the first time in a long time that the ice hockey team has lost back-to-back games. 

“Having a losing record isn’t worrying us at all,” Kress said. 

The next game will be on Monday at 7:10 p.m. against Mt. Lebanon at Mt. Lebanon Ice Arena.
