ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Coulee Region Chill played for both their season and a point of pride Friday night. They lost the first two games of a best-of-five playoff series with St. Louis by a combined score of 11-0.
The Chill wasted no time in front of the home crowd. Only 39 seconds into the game, Ben Jaremko put one past the Bandits goalie to give the Coulee Region their first lead of the series. They nearly brought it out to two goals, when Jaremko poked the Mac Jansen shot in the net, but an early whistle negated the goal, keeping it a 1-0 lead.
St. Louis found its groove in the second period. Joe Kalisz skated the puck in near the nine-minute mark netting the equalizer. And only a few minutes later, Rance Hughes re-directed a TJ Sherman into the back of the net making it 2-1 Bandits.
Coulee Region pulled goalie Aaron Davis late in the third period hoping the 6-on-5 advantage might give them the edge. Instead, St. Louis got behind the Chill defense and put the game away with an empty-net goal, winning the first-round series three games to none.
