It hasn’t been an easy season for Greensburg Salem.
Not only are the Golden Lions mired in last place in the Class A Tier 2 Eastern Conference, they have no upward mobility and have no chance to play spoiler in their final four games of the regular season.
One thing Greensburg Salem (4-14-0) can do, however, is salvage a bit of self-respect. The Golden Lions play a home-and-home series with Wheeling Park (2-15-1), the last place team in the Tier 2 Western Conference, beginning tonight at 9:15at Kirk S. Nevin Arena.
Despite its record, Greensburg Salem has been one of the better offensive teams in the classification, having run and gunned with several teams and are eighth among Class A teams with 91 goals. The problem has been keeping the puck out of its own net as the Golden Lions have allowed 139, the fourth-worst total among teams in the classification.
All-Star senior forward Vincent DeFazio leads the team in almost every offensive category with 22 goals, 39 points and a 2.17 points-per-game average.
