Hard work is working for SV Squirts

Coach Jeff Brendelís Sun Valley Squirts showed what hard work mixed with ice time can do last weekend in Boise.

They won their third and fourth IHL games of the youth hockey season.

However, the weekend highlight was not a Suns victory but a strong showing against IHL powerhouse Las Vegas Outlaws.

One month ago the Outlaws dominated the Suns in a game at Idaho Falls.

Sundayís game against the Outlaws showed the Suns what hard work and dedication mixed with smart, aggressive hockey can do.

Suns forward Zak Sjoberg scored on a great pass from Jonathon Hobbs to give the Suns a first-period lead. Sjoberg scored again in the second with the assist going to Anthony Martin.

The 5-2 final score in favor of Las Vegas did not reflect how well the Suns played.

Coach Brendel told the team after the game that they out-hustled and out-played the Outlaws, but the breaks did not go the Suns way.

In the final game of the weekend the Suns showed off their versatility.

The six regular defensemen moved up to forward and six of the regular forwards moved back to defense.

Normally a first-line defenseman, Tommy Heinrich led the game scoring from his center position by netting two goals and adding one assist.

Also scoring in 6-5 Suns victory over Salmon were Anthony Martin (unassisted), Charlie Evans assisted by Doogie King, LeighAnn VanQuill assisted by Tanner Dredge, and Davis Hague assisted by Charlie Evans.

Zak Sjoberg topped the Suns scoring for the weekend with 4 goals and 1 assist followed by Anthony Martin 2/2, Charlie Evans 2/1, Tommy Heinrich 2/1, Alec England 1/1, LeighAnn VanQuill 1/1, Davis Hague 1/1, Jonathon Hobbs 0/2, Tanner Dredge 0/1 and Doogie King 0/1.

Cody Levitan and Teagan Foster both played two strong games in Suns net, with each recording one win.

Contributing with strong team play were Ashley Hesteness, Nellie Brown, Hailey Zanes, Daniela Stokes, Cass Carson and Cooper Hanley.

The Squirts travel to Salmon this weekend for a quartet of games.
