Chelsea Hockey Falls to Strong Lumen Christi Team in Opener
The Chelsea hockey team hosted a strong Jackson Lumen Christi team in the 2021 opener Wednesday night and came up on the short end of a 5-2 loss.
Lumen wasted no time finding the net scoring just 1:13 into the game as they flipped home a rebound for a 1-0 lead.
The Titans scored a pair of goals 1:30 apart late in the first to take a 3-0 lead after one period.
The lead would grow to 4-0 six minute in to the second period, but the Bulldogs bounced back when Devin McIntyre ripped home a power play goal with an assist to Jack Capper to make it 4-1.
After Lumen scored to make it 5-1, Capper scored in the final minute of the second with assists to Tyler Valik and McIntyre to make it 5-2 after two.
Neither team could find the net in the third to make the final 5-2 Titans.
Byron Bayer made his first start in net for the Bulldogs and was peppered with 41 shots, stopping 36.
The Bulldogs will take on Lenawee United Friday night at 7:30 PM.
