HoneyBaked 0      1 1 2

After spending last season suiting up in the gear of the Novi FireCats (before the team fell apart), Drew is sporting the colors of the HoneyBaked hockey program (as well as the Flint Firebirds) this spring as he searches for a new team. Tonight the HoneyBaked team hosts the Mt. Clemens Wolves in their first game of the spring season.

The first period got off to a fast start, as the Wolves netted the first goal just 2:15 into the game. That would be it for scoring this period though, as the defenses tightened up, and goaltending settled in a bit. Trailing by just a goal gave the HoneyBaked team hope as the period came to an end.

Mt. Clemens got off to a fast start in the second period as well, scoring their second goal of the game just 74 second in, claiming a 2-0 lead. They tacked on their third goal just 2:30 later to take a 3-0 lead. The HoneyBaked team finally broke through with just under 10 minutes remaining to narrow the gap to 3-1, a score that would hold up to the final intermission.

For the third straight period, the Wolves opened up with a quick score, making it a 4-1 game a mere 45 seconds in. The HoneyBaked boys came up with a quick response, answering with a goal of their own less than a minute later, narrowing the deficit to 2 goals with 13 and a half minutes to play. The two teams settled down a bit after that, and traded scoring opportunities without success. The Mount Clemens team tacked on one last goal with under 6 minutes to play, making it a 5-2 game, a score that would stand until the final whistle blew.

Not a great start for the HoneyBaked team, but there were signs of life throughout the game that could prove positive over the course of the spring.
