Weekend Recap Oct 26-29
The Tahoe Icemen put up their most impressive performance of the season last weekend with a three-game sweep of Seattle. The Totems had been threatening to take over the top spot in the division, but the Icemen handed them their first three regulation losses of the season.
Defenseman Phil Heisse recorded his first hat trick of the season in Tahoe’s 9-3 win in the first game. Heisse, who was one of the top-scoring d-men in the league last year at 21-44-65 over 49 games, looks like he’s playing better than ever in his sophomore season.
The result of the sweep for Tahoe is a commanding seven-point lead over Seattle, which is now in third place.
The Icemen are beginning to make opponents dread playing at South Lake Tahoe Arena, as they have a shining 7-1-1 record on home ice. Tahoe has not lost a home game since the beginning of October, when it fell to Ontario 1-0.
The Icemen have their work cut out for them this weekend when they travel to Ogden for a three-game set against the Mountain Division-leading Mustangs at The Ice Sheet.
