On September 23rd in Saginaw, Michigan and coming off their very first ever American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) DIII win, the Sault College Cougars hit the ice at the Saginaw Bay Ice Arena against the Saginaw Valley State University Cardinals in ACHA DIII hockey action.
Cougars Mark Khull, Ryan Vendramin, Cole Peck and Tyler Brown had two goals a piece with Khull and Peck adding one assist with Brown and Vendramin contributing on three goals each in Sault College’s 12 – 2 win over the Cardinals. Thomas Zwiers, Jamie Kamzol, Kevin Thrower and Lucas Duckstein found the back of Saginaw Valley’s net once each with defencemen Jared Binguis and Kelly Quevillon both registering assists with Binguis adding one helper and Quevillon two for the Cougars on Saturday evening in Saginaw. Sault College’s goaltender Carter Bissonette had the win between the pipes for the Cougars.
Cougar coach Mike Hall told Saultsports that “tonight’s score was quite surprising with capturing four points in our opening weekend. Our next trip to Grand Rapids will be a big test for us on October 6th and 7th against the Lakers. We were down two players with school commitments and will see them return for next road trip.”
“The season is a long road to get to where we want to get to after this weekend’s wins” said Hall.
