Jackson Hole Juggernauts Bout | May, 4th

Jackson Hole Moose Again Show Resilience | Bouncing Back for a Thrilling Weekend Split

On Friday night, the Moose faced a challenging competitor in the Boston Tea Party, ultimately succumbing to a 7-4 loss. However, they bounced back with determination on Saturday, securing a 7-5 victory in a thrilling game that showcased their offensive prowess.

Friday night’s game started off promising for the Moose, with early goals setting the tone for what seemed like a game that could go either way. Drew Akins and Ryan Glantz were instrumental, combining for five points, but despite their efforts, Boston TP outplayed the Moose, especially during the second period where they pulled ahead significantly. Nick Krauss, in goal for the Moose, faced a barrage of shots, saving 30 out of 37, which reflected the defensive struggles the team faced throughout the game.

Statistics from Friday’s game underscored the challenges on the ice:

  • Drew Akins led the team with three points (2G, 1A).
  • AJ Sanders facilitated the offense with three assists.
  • Defensive gaps were evident as the Moose allowed seven goals, despite Krauss’ efforts in goal.

Saturday night told a different story for the Jackson Hole Moose. Coming off the previous night’s loss, the team showed incredible tenacity and offensive firepower. Drew Akins once again led the charge, amassing five points (1G, 4A), and was ably supported by AJ Sanders, who contributed four assists. The defense improved their performance as well, with Brad Improta and Mason Brinich both scoring crucial goals, and Robbie Leslie in goal making 33 saves on 38 shots, showcasing a much-improved defensive effort compared to the previous night.

Key highlights from Saturday’s game included:

  • A third-period rally with five goals that clinched the win for the Moose.
  • Outstanding performances from Akins and Sanders, who were involved in nearly every critical play.
  • Robbie Leslie stepping up in goal, providing the stability needed to secure the victory.

The Moose look to get on a roll this weekend in Bozeman against the Bozeman Stingers, a team they split their earlier season series with, winning Friday night 5-2 and losing 5-4 Saturday night at home.
