Cooper Starts Season with a Tie

By Willie Monteiro, 11/30/11, 10:50AM CST


Cooper's first game vs. Legacy Christian was evenly matched on the ice as well as the scoresheet.  Cooper started the game with a barrage of shots, but then the very physical game settled into fairly even back & forth play. Jay Tonsager was the first to get on the scoreboard, banging home a rebound from Tom Monteiro. Sam Morgen & Tom Monteiro tallied two goals a piece in the game. Monteiro added two assists to gain 4 points in the match. A second period scuffle led to the ejection of Newhon Norkeh, but not before he was able to get a couple of assists. Legacy had good goal tending by  Nick Stolarczyk who stopped 29 of 34  shots. Cooper's net was minded by 9th grader Angel Hillstrom in the first start of a female goaltender in the history of the program. Manon Rheaume watch out! The season rolls on this Thursday with a game against St. Michael / Albertville at 7 PM in New Hope.
