Turbos outperform Edgewater Hotel

“I think we had more chances in front of their net and were able to put it in. Other than that, I think it was a pretty even game—back-and-forth.”

Gizci was not the only Turbos player with a four-point outing. Teammate Grant Lyons also racked up two assists and two goals. In fact, both Gizci and Lyons got the ball rolling, assisting the game’s first goal, made by Glen Heinbigner who inturn assisted his team’s final two goals as well.

“We were fighting hard at the start,” said Edgewater’s Robert McLeod. “I hit three posts in the first period, so that didn’t help.

“We got beat to the puck in our own end.”

Even with his post-problems, McLeod got on the board by assisting Terry Berquistin in the first and Brent Stokes in the second. With 14:54 left in the period, Stokes let a shot go from the point that took a funky bounce and found Turbos’ Jeff Kalles’ five-hole. Shelby Workman scored Edgewater’s final goal with 9:06 left to play.

Other scorers for the Turbos were Jason Cunning and Woody Bennett, both putting the rubber against the mesh in the first period.

The Turbos’ win comes after a 7-3 loss to the Firth Rangers Sunday.

“I don’t think the score really indicated how we played—it was a pretty good game,” said Gizci, who also scored two goals on Sunday including one on a penalty shot.

“I got tripped once before and they didn’t give me a penalty shot, they just gave him a penalty. (On another tripping call) then they did and I capitalized on it.”

According to McLeod, the Edgewater bench was missing teammate Brent Cooper, who was away celebrating his wife’s birthday, thereby throwing his loyalty to the team into question.

“We really missed Cooper tonight,” said McLeod. “It was his wife’s birthday … so he had to stay home.

“We gave her a few phone calls, but she wouldn’t buckle.”
