Bluebirds rally to victory
Brad Money tied the game at 10:24 of the third period, and Cody Iverson got the game-winner on an unassisted goal at 11:08 of the third as Janesville’s high school co-op boys hockey team skated to a 5-3 win over McFarland at the Janesville Ice Skating Center.
Janesville (10-4-1) had a 2-0 lead after one period, but McFarland scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-2 lead early in the third period.
“It came down to having to go to work to get the job done, and we were able to do that,” Janesville coach John Mauermann said. “We were able to get the puck to the net in the third, and good things happened.
“We were coming off a little bit of a break, but I like the way we responded in the third. It was a good win.”
Sean MacDougall, Ron Lindgren and Clay Simonson also scored for Janesville.
The Bluebirds play the Madison La Follette/East co-op team at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Hartmeyer Arena in Madison.
