United takes the thunder out of Bay Area

United was active over the weekend, beating the visiting Bay Area Thunder 7-4 at the Polar Palace.

The game on Saturday, Feb. 10, came after snowy weather cancelled the Swan Valley game.

The team consists of players from Kearsley, Brandon, Holly, and Lake Fenton.

United took control of the game early, taking the lead with an unassisted goal by Kearsley senior Dru Sweers.

Sweers scored the first goal of the second period as well, assisted by goaltender Tyler Keller, a Kearsley junior.

The Thunder scored a goal to come within one, but Sweers scored a power-play goal to complete his third hat trick of the season.

Kearsley junior Trevor Keller and Holly senior Logan Henry assisted on the goal.

Colby Polutanovich, a Holly freshman, got on the board with a short-handed goal, assisted by Sweers.

Sweers scored his fourth goal of the game at 14:31 in the period, adding to his impressive point total.

The goal was assisted by Brandon sophomore Noah Bolton.

United opened the third period by improving its lead to 6-1 with another Sweers goal. He was assisted by Lake Fenton senior Drew Hobson.

The Thunder cut the lead to 6-2 with an even-strength goal, but Lake Fenton senior Aidan Flick scored his ninth goal of the season to continue the United domination.

Bay Area scored two goals late in the third, but it was not enough as United won by three.

Tyler Keller had an impressive night in the net, posting an .852 save percentage.

Sweers’ six-point game keeps him at the top of the scoring charts, with 28 goals and 21 assists.

The team is now standing at 9-9, with one overtime loss.

United will host Swartz Creek/Clio/Flushing on Wednesday, Feb. 14.
