Hockey: Jaguars have plenty of weapons

Written by Ryan Riordan on .

A person only needs one look at the scoring leaders in PIHL Class A to know that Thomas Jefferson can score with anyone in the league.

The Jaguars had four of the top seven scorers in Class A entering play on Wednesday, which has helped them score a league-best 31 goals in their 3-1-1 start.

Zach Uhlyar, who finished third in Class last season with 67 points, was third in the league heading into Wednesday night with 12 points (seven goals, five assists). He is directly followed in the scoring department by Brendan Mason and Tommy Kimmick, who each have 11 points. Nicholas Tamburi is seventh with eight points.

The Jaguars haven’t been too shabby defensively, either, allowing fewer than three goals per game. Goaltender Nick Ripepi has a .913 save percentage and 2.13 goals-against average in four starts.
