It’s a crosstown classic as both Naperville North and Naperville Central celebrate Seniors’ Night on the Ice. These two teams have met twice so far this season, with the Redhawks winning the last duel in overtime. This highlight is sponsored by BMO Harris Bank.
A little over two minutes later, the huskies attack. Charlie Szymczak skates with the puck and shoots at the net and it goes to the game’s opening goal.
Hawks are now chasing the loose puck which Jake Miller gets and passes to Charlie Jasica who scores to tie the contest.
Blue and Orange find a way to respond. Emilio Perez perishes and finds Szymczak again and he scores goal number two to give North the 2-1 lead back.
Now the Hawks are trying to tie things but Husky goaltender Sean Denker hasn’t as he denies the two-goal attempt to retain the lead for the Dogs.
Second half and Szymczak is still on the ice. He shoots and scores, resulting in the second player’s hat trick. Huskies open the door with a 3-1 lead.
But the North veteran also wanted to score on the senior evening. It starts with Zach Zuspann, who is standing directly at the net and pushing in the puck.
Patrick Hennessy puts it away on a breakaway. It’s a one-on-one battle that Hennessy mercilessly wins. Huskies take senior night win 6-1 over Redhawks.
