BRODEUR PITCHES SHUTOUT AS SHATTUCK IS GOLDEN FOR SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR
CALGARY, Alta. – Anthony Brodeur made 27 saves for the shutout, while Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Norman both scored a goal and added an assist as Shattuck-St. Mary’s claimed their second consecutive World Sport School Challenge Prep Division gold medal with a 3-0 win over the previously-unbeaten Czech Republic on Wednesday.
Ryan Norman opened the scoring for Shattuck at the 8:25 mark of the first period, banging home a rebound off of a Marcel Godbout point-shot. Luke Kania made it 2-0 less than four minutes later and Alex Rodriguez made it a three-goal lead with a power-play marker with only 17 seconds left in the period, capping off a dominate opening 20 minutes for Shattuck, who outshot the Czechs 15-7.
Brodeur and Czech goaltender Vitek Vanek stole the show in the second period, stopping everything that was fired at them, as the Czechs outshot Shattuck 14-13 in the frame.
It was more of the same in the third period, as both teams were unable to find the back of the net, while Brodeur tacked on six more saves to seal the victory for Shattuck.
Shattuck went a perfect 3-0 in the preliminary round which earned them a bye straight to the semifinals, where they were 7-1 winners over Edge School. The Czechs were also unbeaten in the preliminary round and earned the other bye straight to the semifinals, where they topped Germany by a score of 4-2.
