AW 9, St. Johns Gold 3
AW 11, Maumee 3
AW 2, Springfield and Friends 2

The Anthony Wayne Generals offense was in high gear this weekend, outscoring their opponents 29 to 10.  AW played all four games with only 9 or fewer skaters, while all the other teams except Maumee had over-flowing benches.  Aaron Podbielniak and Mike Kaptur scored hat tricks.  Rob Brubaker and Brandon Zielinski also scored.  Goalie Chris Podbielniak suffered an upper body injury near the end of the Maumee game as a result of a collision with a Maumee player.  Defenseman Matt Trautlein assumed the duties in net for the Springfield and Friends game.  The wear and tear of 3 games with a short bench finally took its toll in game 4.  Overall it was a great weekend for AW Hockey.
