Raging Bulldogs attack the net

Cohin Reynolds

The Freeburg-Waterloo Raging Bulldogs got back to their winning ways last week, while the Columbia Eagles hit a slight rough patch on the ice. 

The Raging Bulldogs (12-8) are in first place in the Varsity 1A division of the Mississippi Valley Club Hockey Association standings, but had suffered three straight losses entering last Tuesday’s tilt against East Alton-Wood River. 

Thanks to a hat trick from Cohin Reynolds, two goals and an assist from Caiden Anderson, and four assists from Conner Blair, Freeburg-Waterloo won 6-2.

Blair leads the Raging Bulldogs with 18 goals and 16 assists this season, which ranks ninth in the MVCHA in scoring. 

Freeburg-Waterloo battled Triad on Tuesday, falling 6-5, then faces East Alton-Wood River again this Thursday night in Granite City before tangling with Highland this coming Monday night in Granite City. 

Columbia (11-6-3) dropped two games last week. The Eagles are in fifth place in the MVCHA’s Varsity 2A standings. 

Last Tuesday, the Eagles dropped a 4-3 contest to Belleville despite leading 3-2 after two periods. Rece Sanderson recorded a goal and an assist for Columbia. 

On Thursday, Columbia lost 5-1 to undefeated Edwardsville. 

Jack Reuss leads the Eagles in scoring this season with 32 goals and 16 assists, which ranks among the MVCHA scoring leaders.

Columbia took on Collinsville on Tuesday night, winning 7-5 behind four goals and two assists from Sanderson, and will battle O’Fallon this coming Monday in East Alton.
