Chelsea Hockey Routs Lenawee in Finale
The Chelsea hockey team wrapped up its regular season with a 9-2 pasting of Lenawee United to finish with a 20-4 overall record on the season.
The win also gave the Bulldogs an 11-1 final record in the SEC.
Chelsea scored three times in each period which included three short-handed goals to put away Lenawee.
Jack Roberts scored a pair of shorthanded goals in the opening period and scored his 38th goal of the season to put the Bulldogs up 3-0 after one.
Jacob Corcoran found the net early in the second for a 4-0 lead before Lenawee put one on the board to make it 4-1.
The Bulldogs answered with goals by Drew Sherwood and Hayden Westcott to push the lead to 6-1 after two.
Westcott scored his second of the game in the third for a 7-1 lead. Lenawee would add another to make it 7-2 before Shane McLaughlin scored the third shorthanded goal of the night to make it 8-2 and Owen McCulloch wrapped up the scoring with a goal to make a final 9-2.
Chelsea will host the D3 Regional and will open play Thursday night at 7:30 against a strong Father Gabriel Richard team. A win and the Bulldogs could face Orchard Lake St. Mary in a rematch of last season's D3 state quarterfinal.
