DAVENPORT-- The Quad City Ice Eagles started the second half of their season Sunday morning with a 6-0 shutout win over the Bantam Select team at the Quad City Sport Center. The Eagles were lead by Center Josh Moon and Right Wing David Warta, who each scored one goal and collected three assists, and a strong defense that limited the Select team to just three shots on goal.
Despite being outshot 12-1 in the first period, the Select team managed to keep the Eagles from scoring during the first period. However, a penalty late in the first carried over into the second period, and it took Grant Reuter just 13 seconds to score the game’s first goal, assisted by John Carr and Ryne Takacs. Just over five minutes later, Right Wing David Warta picked up a pass from Moon behind his own net, and skated through the entire Select team before beating the goalie with a shot high into the corner of the net to increase the margin to two goals. Later in the second, Moon had control of the puck to the goalie’s left, when he spotted Jason Corcoran moving into the high slot from his left defense position. Moon’s pass was right on the tape, and Jason’s quick wrist shot found the five-hole, for his first tally of the season. Less than a minute later, Warta set up Moon to give the Eagles a big 4-0 lead after two periods.
In the third period, the Moon-Warta-Busch line continued to apply pressure, as Austin Busch scored the only two goals of the third period, with Warta assisting on both goals. The Eagle defense made life easy for Goalie Brandon Kruse, who did not have to face a single shot in the third period. For the game, the Eagles outshot the Select team 27-3.
The win pushed the Eagles’ overall record to 13-12.The Eagles return to action next weekend, with two games at Ames on Sunday. The schedule for Saturday has not yet been finalized.
