Bluebirds drop West for ninth straight victory
The fourth-ranked Bluebirds overpowered Madison West, 6-1, here Tuesday night at the Janesville Ice Skating Center to go 6-0 in the conference and 9-0 for the season.
Ross Mauermann notched a hat trick in the first period as Janesville took a 4-0 lead over the Regents.
“It was a nice start,” Janesville coach John Mauermann said. “We started our third line and then put in our first line, and it created some difficulty for West.’’
Tommy Tralmer scored the Bluebirds’ first goal at 50 seconds. Mauermann scored his first goal at 6:48 and added his second on a power play at 10:57. Mauermann capped his hat trick with a 5-on-3 shorthanded goal at 16:47.
The Bluebirds play at Milwaukee University School in a nonconference game at 7 p.m. Friday.
