Maple Grove's Jarrett Cammarata scores the go-ahead goal against Moorhead

The month of December has been rugged for the Maple Grove Senior High School boys hockey team. With one lone win in their last six games, the Crimson entered their first game of the Walser Holiday Classic against Moorhead High School looking to turn things around.

After both squads played a defensive first period, the Spuds struck first, scoring with just seven seconds left in the period to take a 1-0 lead.

The second period brought renewed effort by the Crimson. After a Moorhead penalty, Jack Kelly scored the first of his two goals at 6:29 to tie up the game. Less than four minutes later, Jarrett Cammarata tallied his fourth goal of the season as he walked in from the right dot and caught Moorhead goalie Easton Masseth out of position giving the Crimson a 2-1 lead.

Kelly would tally his second goal of the game sending the puck into an empty net. Goaltender Brady Goodman settled in and made 22 saves on 23 Moorhead shots. The Crimson killed off all five penalties they took and converted on one of six power play opportunities.

Three Stars:
Jack Kelly- Kelly’s first goal came at a critical time. The Crimson dominated the physical play against the Spuds in the second period and finally cracked Masseth mid-way through the period.

Jarrett Cammarata- The junior tallied his fourth goal of the season in a sequence that saw the Crimson control the puck in the offensive zone. Cammarata was impressive all game winning the physical battles and keeping pressure on the Spuds in the offensive zone.

Brady Goodman- After allowing the first period goal, Goodman stopped the next 18 shots. After allowing at least five goals in each of his last three games, the senior settled in and was dominant in net.

Up Next:
The Crimson face Stillwater noon Tuesday, Dec. 29 at the St. Louis Park Rec Center.
