The Ralston Valley Mustangs are off to a spectacular start for the hockey season. Three games into the quick season and they have notched three wins, a 5-4 win over Resurrection Christian, a 3-2 win over Dakota Ridge, and tonight a 8-0 rout of Cheyenne Mountain.
The Mustangs took the ice and quickly established their dominance, in the 1st period they poured on six goals, including a spectacular hat trick by senior Max Jakoby.
Cheyenne Mountain struggled to get into the Mustang territory, let alone get shots on net.
Senior goalie Joel Ives from Ralston Valley had his first shutout, in his first season as the starting goalie for the Mustangs.
In the 2nd period RV kept out their number one line for most the time, yet still got another goal added onto the board.
Come the 3rd, Cheyenne Mountain received little mercy from Coach Shoepflin and the Mustangs as they knocked in one more to seal the game at 8-0.
For the Mustangs this sort of start is nothing new, the past two years showing off almost undefeated seasons besides one blemish in a tie and then a close loss to Cherry Creek in the semi finals.
The Mustangs will look to continue this success this Saturday when they will play at Denver East in Big Bear Arena at 7:00 pm.
Stay tuned for more news on the 5A hockey season as it continues into the playoffs.
