I-5 For the week of April 7th-14th

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - "We're going to start this week's list off with the winners of the Beat Beethoven 5K. Nanook Runners Jack Matherly and Daniel Serventi crossed the finish line at the same time to take the top overall spot. They finished the race in 15 minutes and 52 seconds to share the top spot. Their teammate Alex Bergholtz was the top female finisher with a time of 18 minutes and 37 seconds. That was the third consecutive year as the top women's finisher for Bergholtz.
Next up we have Fairbanks Ice Dog Forward Luke Mobley, who is able to recollect the puck after the Janesville Defense attempts to knock it away. Mobley winds up and fires this shot past three Jet defenders as well as the Goaltender to put the Ice Dogs on the board. This helped secure a 2-0 win in game one of their playoff series. ​
Speaking of game one, Ice Dog Goaltender Mattias Sholl shined in that victory. He earned his seventh shutout of the year and his ninth consecutive victory. On this particular night, Sholl stopped each and every one of the 26 shots fired his way. ​
We now have our first soccer appearance of the year for the I-5. Lathrop's Graham Wappett fires a long shot and perfectly sinks it off of the crossbar and behind the goalkeeper. This 30 yard goal helped the Malemutes secure a 9-2 victory in their season opener. ​
And the number one spot this week goes to Ice Dog Defenseman John Stampohar. Stampohar collects the pick at the blue line and breaks the ankles of a would-be defender. He then fires a long shot through the rest of the Jets to light the lamp for the Ice Dogs. This goal was the game-winner in Saturday's contest."​
