Demons Take Out Cougars in Home and Home Series

The Demons and Cougars organization took over the news this weekend with a home and home series, marking their first and last match-ups this season.

The action started Saturday Night at The Hockey Dek in Springfield, PA, when the Cougars and Demons Black minor teams kicked off the weekend with a split.  The Demons went down early in game 1 and weren’t able to recover, losing to the Cougars 5-1.  Game 2 was a different story, with the Demons and Cougars trading goals in the first period, and Demons pulling away in the second, for a 7-5 victory.

The Elites followed with a tightly contested first game, which the Demons took 3-2, despite a second period surge by the Cougars.  The second game of the match-up saw the teams trade goals in the first period, only to have the Demons explode for 4 goals in the second period, and take the game 7-2. 

Back in action on Sunday morning, it was the Demons Orange Minor team to start things off against the Cougars.  The Orange team struggled in the first game, falling 9-1 to the Cougars, but were able to turn it around in the second game with a better defensive strategy.  Unfortunately, scoring didn’t follow suit, and they again fell to the Cougars, 3-0. 

The Elites again suited up against each other in New Jersey Sunday afternoon, and the Demons picked up where they left off, winning the first game in convincing fashion, by a score of 7-1.  In game 2, the Demons kept it going, holding off a late desperation run by the Cougars, for a 7-4 win.

With the 4 win sweep of the Cougars, the Demons Elites sit in second place (9-0-0-1) behind the Liberty, with 6 games in hand, and the Cougars fall to third.  With their 3 wins, the Cougars minors climb into 1st place, while Demons Black sits in third behind the Robins, and Demons Orange remains in fifth place.

Next up for the Elite and Minor Black teams is a trip to Richmond, VA to take on the Robins.  This is a big conference match-up for the Minor Division, as the teams split earlier this month, and second place is up for grabs.  The Minor Orange team is off until February 16th on a trip to Pittsburgh, PA, with the rest of the Demons club.
