After a strong start to the reason, Boys Hockey was defeated last night by Mahtomedi.

What began as a tie game at the end of first period escalated into a 3-1 loss, leaving Spartan players and fans low-spirited upon leaving Drake Ice Arena.

The game was one of the most tense and fast paced games the team has played all season, but Mahtomedi’s strength as a 1,000 plus student school was a challenge for the Spartans as SPA’s Upper School enrollment tops out at about 400 students.

But Senior Captain Jake Hosszu looked on the bright side.

The boys came out hard and they capitalized on some chances. We’ll learn from it and be ready for them [Mahtomedi] in sections.”

“The boys came out hard and they capitalized on some chances,” Hosszu said, “We’ll learn from it and be ready for them [Mahtomedi] in sections.”

While the team’s many shots were skillfully blocked by Mahtomedi’s goalie, junior Will Schavee scored the Spartan’s only goal of the night to tie the game up. And despite Mahtomedi’s three goals, Senior Goalie Tom Kuriscak’s performance in the net was a significant force against Mahtomedi’s scoring opportunities.

“He moved like a lightning bolt,” Senior fan Pia Schultz said in reference to a particularly impressive save by Kuriscak, “it was the best save I’ve seen him make all season.”

The team hopes to bring lessons learned from this loss into their next game, which is away on Dec. 10 against Breck.
