Hockey: Bobcats gaining momentum as playoffs near

Written by Keith Barnes on .

With five games remaining in the regular season, Beaver continues to make a move up the Class B standings and into a more solid playoff position.

Not only have the Bobcats won three of their last four games, they have leapfrogged into a tie for fifth place with two games in hand on Peters Township B.

And that might not be the last of their moves up.

Beaver (8-7-0) has several winnable games remaining and trails third-place Blackhawk by only two points. If the Bobcats move to third or fourth, it would secure a home playoff game in the first round instead of a potentially lengthy road trip.

Beaver will get its next opportunity to move up on Mondaywhen it travels to Center Ice in Delmont to play last place Penn-Trafford B.

Hockey: West Feature Athlete – Beaver’s Robbie Halvin

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Name: Robbie Halvin

School: Beaver Area                     

Grade: 12

Sport: Hockey

 

Background: A first-time all-star this season, the senior netminder has put up some outstanding numbers while splitting time with James Scisson. Halvin is 4-4-0 with a sparkling 2.37 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage, numbers that both rank him second behind Harborcreek’s Hunter Meyette (.936) among goaltenders with at least five decisions.

 

Beaver coach Chris Albright: “He’s one of the best kids off the ice, too. He’s a great kid and we have a lot of fun on the ice and he’s really trustworthy in the net. He’s very vocal in the net, he always lets the defense know what’s going on and you can always hear Robbie on the ice helping his team out.”
