It has been a struggle for the Chelsea hockey team in the early going of the 2018-19 season, but the Bulldogs snapped its season opening five game losing streak by taking down Ann Arbor Huron 5-1 Wednesday night for the first win of the season.
The win was also the first for new Bulldogs head coach Nick Vetter and comes at the right time as the Bulldogs make a long road trip to Gaylord for a pair of games this weekend.
Brad Sullivan scored at the 14 minute mark of the opening period to give Chelsea an early 1-0 lead.
Will Sujek found the net with just over four minutes remaining in the period to make it 2-0.
Huron got one back in the second to cut the lead to 2-1 and it stayed that way until the third period.
Brendan Westcott scored just over a minute into the third period to make it 3-1 and five minutes later Cooper Mattson beat the Huron goaltender to make it 4-1.
Noaln Law finished the scoring and sealed the win with just over five minutes remaining to make the final 5-1.
Wes Hansen and Nathan Jozwiak picked up two assists each, while Nicklas Holmberg, Westcott, Sujek, and Gabe Vowles each had an assist. Aidan Boote stopped 18 of 19 shots for the Bulldogs.
