Northbrook, IL- The Bantam A Bluehawks are playing some of their best hockey when it counts: as they are heading into the playoffs. Thursday night at Northbrook Sports Center, the Bluehawks out skated the Chargers from Rolling Meadows by a score of 6-2. Guided by head coach Rich Blakey and assistant Trevor Noonan, the BH looked very good against the Chargers. Goal scorers for Northbrook were Christian Adams F, Michael Rabkin F, Andrew Rubin F, Brayden Roy F and Matthew Bruckman D. Goalie Jordan Fliegel was outstanding between the pipes as he made save after save for the BH.
An energetic crowd cheered on their home team to a very convincing W. They went on to play two games over the weekend: against Champaign Saturday and Evanston on Sunday.
The BH won in a very convincing fashion vs Champaign by a 4-2 score and tied Evanston 2-2. Fliegel again played very well and Adams scored twice Sunday. Adams finished the three game stretch with an impressive 3 goals and 5 assists. Nice job Christian, Jordan, Michael and ALL the Bluehawks on a job well done!!!
We spoke to Christian’s dad, Mike, before the puck dropped and he had this to say about the BH season, “It’s going well. We are two points out of first and we were not supposed to be that close. We are 12-3 and having a nice successful year so far.”
Fliegel when asked why he plays goalie said this, “I didn’t want to get hit by other players.” I think he may have kidding a tad because he faces hard pucks coming him at him all game long! He continued, “We’re good. I think we should win both games this weekend. Saturday’s team (Champaign) is a tough.”
Adams had this to say, “I need to keep doing it to the max (scoring). We are playing pretty well and our record is pretty good.” As to the upcoming games, he added, “We need to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”
Good luck to the Bluehawks as they fly high into the playoffs.
