Dominic Riggio scored in the first period and Andrew Granata scored a shorthanded goal in the second for Eisenhower.

All of Romeo’s goals have been scored with the teams evenly matched.

“Romeo brought it to us,” Eisenhower’s trainer Bob Hall said. “They came out with energy. They simplified the game. They put the puck on the net and our guys didn’t do anything easy.

“Our guys didn’t budge, which is our asset. We fought the puck all game instead of just playing. We didn’t play our game. Hats off to Romeo. They took us out of our game. It just wasn’t our night.

Dillan Basha had two assists for Romeo. Nick Wilkinson, Danny Beauchamp, Cullen Jones, Vincent Ruffino and Alessandro Evangelista had one each. Jake VanCamp was the winning goaltender.

“I feel really good after that one,” Romeo assistant coach Matt Burke said. “They’re a good team, so I’m going to get this win.

“We needed this one. It was team work. Everyone played well. »

Burke was surprised by the Bulldogs’ goals late in the second period.

“It happened so fast,” he said. “We scored a goal, then we scored again. I think we played well in all three periods.
