Bluebirds overwhelm Eastside Lakers
Ross Mauermann scored five goals, and Grant Jahns added a hat trick as Janesville’s high school co-op hockey team pounded the Lakers, 17-1, in a Big Eight Conference game at the Janesville Ice Skating Center.
The Bluebirds (14-5, 10-3) played lethargic in beating the Eastside Lakers a week ago, but it was differen this time.
“We got right after them and never let up,” Janesville coach John Mauermann said. “We changed the lineup around a little bit, and I was really happy with the way everyone responded.
“Every line moved the puck around the ice the way you’re supposed to, and we finished when we were around the net.”
Ross Mauermann, the reigning Big Eight Player of the Year, got things going early with a goal eight seconds into the game. The Janesville Parker senior added three more goals in the period as the Bluebirds opened up a 10-0 lead.
Jahns, also a Parker senior, got two goals in the second period and completed the hat trick with a shorthanded goal at 15:40 of the third period.
Janesville finishes the regular season Saturday night at Sun Prairie.
