— The Janesville Bluebirds piled up two victories Saturday for a successful three-win holiday weekend.

Janesville’s co-op boys hockey team defeated Catholic Memorial, 4-2, and Reedsburg/Wisconsin Dells, 8-3, for a sweep in the Beloit Holiday Tournament. The Bluebirds defeated Beloit, 9-5, in a season-opener Friday.

Coach John Mauermann said the 3-0 start is the result of a good team effort.

“Guys were in the right spots, and we got a number of rebounds,” Mauermann said of Saturday’s victories. “The first line gave us a lot of opportunities, but some came off the third line, too. In a lot of ways this was a team effort.’’

Tanner Woodman posted a hat trick in the first period to give Janesville a 3-1 lead over Catholic Memorial.

Against Reedsburg/Wisconsin Dells , Woodman scored another hat trick along with teammate D.J. Mussey.

The Bluebirds travel to Oregon at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
