At the 7:41 mark Prestyn Hoefler found AJ Noll alone in the slot where AJ made it a 5-1 game.  Doug Eardly found AJ Noll on the back door to make it a 6-1 game.  Troy scored again when Troy Moore made a goal crease pass to freshman Jack McGuirk who was all alone on the back door with just 1 minute left in the second.  The Trojans were not done yet, with 40 seconds left in the second period Tyler Hess had a great open ice hit on the Wolves puck carrier that let Troy Moore skate in uncontested against the Kilbourne goalie and Troy made it 8-1.

Thursday Feb. 12th    Troy vs. Centerville  Lost 3-1

The Troy Trojan Hockey team was playing at South Metro in the first round of the upper bracket of the South West Ohio High School Hockey League tournament and were taking on the 3rd seeded Elk of Centerville.  The two teams had played twice before and had split the games. 

The first period was tight as both teams skated hard with Troy controlling the play in their offensive zone.  With only 2:57 left in the first Prestyn Hoefler hit a streaking AJ Noll as he split the defenders and was off to the races. The Elk goalie tried to stick check AJ, but AJ just skated past him for the score.  The celebration was short lived as the Elk scored on the next shift to knot it up at 1-1.  

The second period was a very exhausting one for Troy with 3 penalties that caused a five minute power play and then an additional penalty that caused a five on three.  Troy's penalty killers did an exceptional job keeping the Elk from getting a good look at the goal and Cory Neff in the goal was a wall.  Despite the lack of Troy players on the ice,  Troy still was able to keep the shot number close only being out shot 6-2 in the period, but more importantly kept the Elk puck out of the net.

The third was one of those that started well, but did not end well for Troy.  The Trojans could not stay out of the box and forced another full two minute five on three with just under 7 minutes to go.  Things were looking good, but just as the penalty was about to end, the Elk found a man all alone on the back door for an easy score with just 5:17 to go in the game.  Troy then allowed the third and final goal by the elk with 3:11 to go.  The Trojans were being called for way too many penalties and it was wearing the players down with special teams on the ice too much.  Finally with 1:17 to go in the game, Troy pulled their goalie and the Elk were called for a penalty giving Troy a 6 on 4.  Troy had issues controlling the puck but did get 3 or 4 shots off, but just could not get them on goal.  The final buzzer sounded with the Elk on top 3-1.

Cory Neff was in the goal and stopped 16 of 19 shots.  AJ Noll had 1 goal and Prestyn Hoefler had 1 assist.

The Trojans were ranked 16th out of 28 teams in the Columbus District and will play Kilbourne on Friday Feb. 19th at the Ice Haus in Columbus at 6:30 pm.  Good luck to the Trojans.


Saturday Feb. 6th    Troy vs. Talawanda  Won 4-3

The Troy Trojan Hockey team was playing at Goggin Arena at Miami University in their last regular season game against the Talawanda Braves in a league match up.  This game was significant because it was the difference between winning the League Division and moving back up to the Red Division next season or placing second in the division and staying in the lower division next season.  Coach Noll told the players in the locker room before the game, "This game means a lot to the seniors. This one is for all the marbles".  And the seniors responded.  At the 3:30 mark in the first period, Michael Hess slapped in a rebound off of a Doug Eardly shot and gave the Trojans the lead. The first was very physical with play going back and forth.  The Braves out shot the Trojans, but the period ended with Troy on top 1-0.  

The second found Troy playing more defense than offense, while the Braves again were shooting from all angles and were out shooting Troy 20-9, but your Trojans were still on top.  When Troy did take a shot they were high quality shots and finally at the 4:55 mark in the second, AJ Noll took a pass from Charlie Ryan and Prestyn Hoefler and beat the goalie high glove side to give Troy the 2-0 lead.  Talawanda scored a few minutes later on a power play to make it a 2-1 game. Penalties were being called on both teams, but the penalty kills were working and Troy only gave up the 1 power play goal to this point, even though the Braves had 4 opportunities. At the 11:05 point in the second period, Doug Eardly posted himself in front of the Braves goalie and slapped in a rebound to make it a 3-1 game.  AJ Noll and Prestyn Hoefler got the assists. Just as the period was ending, Talawanda scored, you guessed it, on a power play.   The second ended with Troy on top 3-2.

Talawanda was called for 4 minutes of penalties in the third period while Troy went to the box for 8 minutes and an additional 10 minute misconduct.  Even though Troy appeared to be skating a man down for the entire period and their penalty killers were dead tiered, they were playing their hearts out and giving it all they had.  At the 3:11 mark in the third period, the Braves capitalized on another power play and knotted up the game at 3-3. Troy appeared to score at the 8 minute mark, but the goal was waved off when one of the referees ruled he didn't see the puck cross the line before one of the Braves cleared it.  Finally, at the 9:35 mark in the third period, AJ Noll hit the game winner when he undressed the goalie on a breakaway to give Troy the 4-3 lead.  The assist went to Prestyn Hoefler. Troy played keep away and worked hard the last 4 minutes of the game to secure the game and the League Title.  

Cory Neff was between the pipes and stopped 32 of the 35 shots. Troy only had 15 shots, but 4 of them they were good ones!  AJ Noll had 2 goals and 1 assists. Doug Eardly had 1 goal and 1 assist. Michael Hess had 1 goal.  Prestyn Hoefler had 3 assists. Charlie Ryan also picked up an assists.  

What an exciting game and exciting finish to the regular season.  Your Troy Trojans will take on the Centerville Elk on Thursday Feb. 11th at South Metro at 7:40 pm in the first round of the Red Division League Tournament. Hope to see you there.

Again, from the "Friends of Troy Hockey", Congratulations to the Troy Varsity Hockey team for winning the Gold Division and good luck in the league tournament and the state tournament.

Sunday Jan. 3rd     Troy vs. Northern Kentucky  Lost 5-3

KY scored first halfway into the first to take the 1-0 lead on a power play.

The second period started better for Troy when Troy Moore scored off a pass from AJ Noll and Nate Uhlenbrock to knot it up all up at 1-1.  With that goal, AJ Noll was credited with his 100th career assist and also broke the Troy High School record for the most points in school history with 179 points.  After a brief ceremony to recognize AJ’s accomplishments, it was back to hockey. The game went back and forth and it appeared that Troy took the lead on two separate occasions with both goals being disallowed. The first due to the KY goalie pushing the goal off its moorings and the second because the referees felt the puck did not hit the net, but rather the cross bar and the post.  AJ Noll added to his career stats when he gave Troy the lead off a Graham Harvey and Prestyn Hoefler pass 2-1 to end the second.

The Norse stared the third period with a bad take away and an unassisted goal to tie the game at 2-2 and then took the lead just 37 seconds later.  Troy gave up a power play goal with 5 minutes still on the clock to make it a 4-2 KY lead.

Saturday Dec. 19th Troy vs. Whitmer  Won 9-3

The Troy Trojan Hockey team was playing at Hobart Arena for the first time in their young season. The Trojans were 5 wins, 5 losses and 1 tie.  The Toledo Whitmer Panthers were 2 and 2 on the season and had not played any of the teams from south west Ohio yet.  It was Troy Youth hockey Night and there was a good crowd of young players just waiting to watch their mentors play.  Troy was limping into this game with both of their goalies on injured reserve.  Junior Caleb Mangas stepped in to play goal, even though he had never done it before. 

The puck dropped and the Trojans controlled the play. They skated down the ice and 18 seconds later Doug Eardly hit Prestyn Hoefler who hit AJ Noll in the high slot where Noll burred it to give Troy the early lead.  After the second face off of the game and again Troy controlling the puck, a quick shift change and the same results.

Prestyn Hoefler picked up a rebound and scored to give Troy the 4-0 lead to end the first period. Troy was dominating the play and out shot Toledo 15 to 2 with shots on goal.  

Troy's third line got on the score sheet early in the second period when Shane Smith and Kaleb Nelson set up Graham Harvey for his first varsity goal.  The Panthers finally got on the board when a clearing pass eluded the Troy goalie and bounced in to make it 5-1. Tyler Hess went long when he skated from one end to the other and scored an unassisted goal giving Troy a 6-1 lead to end the second.  Troy was still controlling the puck and the game and were up 31-7 with shots on goal.

Sunday Dec. 13th Troy vs. Elder- Tied 3-3

Troy was playing a league game at the Cincinnati Gardens versus the Elder Panthers in a Sunday afternoon game.

The game went back and forth with no goals until with a minute remaining in regulation time the Trojans pulled the goalie to give Troy an additional attacker and with just 34 second to go, Troy Moore found Prestyn Hoefler for the game tying goal.

The game came to an end with the score all tied up at 3-3. A shoot out was called for by Elder who went up 3-1 in the shoot out. The game still counts as a tied game in league standings and records.

Saturday Dec. 12th Troy vs. LaSalle Won 8-2

Troy was playing their first league game of the season at the Cincinnati Gardens. When Troy took the ice it appeared they were skating in a fog. Literally, a fog! The Gardens has no humidification and there was a thin fog over the ice that just wouldn't leave and gave both teams issues.

The LaSalle Lancers took advantage of the conditions and shot a long shot in on Troy's keeper Cory Neff that slipped by giving the Lancers a quick 1-0 lead. Troy started slow again, which has been the issue the past few games. That all changed very quickly when Troy Moore found Prestyn Hoefler on the week side where he tied the game up at 1-1. John Wehrkamp tapped in an AJ Noll pass to give Troy the lead for good. Tyler Hess took a pass from Enrique Alejandre and Doug Eardly and hit the back of the net for a 3-1 Troy lead. Prestyn Hoefler scored on the back door from an AJ Noll pass to end the first period with your Trojans in the lead 4-1. The second period started the same way the first did, with LaSalle scoring off a deep shot from the blue line. Prestyn Hoefler answered for the third time off a back door pass from AJ Noll to make it 5-2. AJ Noll went top shelf on a great Doug Eardly pass to make it 6-2. Tyler Hess scored his second of the game when he deked the goalie and made it a 7-2 Troy lead. Assist to Charlie Ryan and Dominic Wenrick. The second came to an end with Troy up 7-2.

Troy did an excellent job controlling the puck and with 14 second to go in the penalty AJ Noll scored an unassisted short handed goal to give Troy the 8-2 lead and the win.

Cory Neff saw 12 foggy shots and stopped 10 of them. Prestyn Hoefler had the hat trick with his 3 goals. AJ Noll had 2 goals and 3 assists. Tyler Hess had 2 goals and Johnny Football had 1 goal and 1 assist. (John Wehrkamp...sorry!!) Troy Moore, Enrique Alejandre, Charlie Ryan, Shane Smith and Dominic Wenrick each picked up 1 assist.

Sunday Dec. 6th Troy vs. Northern KY  Lost 4-3

Troy was playing in the lovely Northern Kentucky rink where they have struggled the past two seasons.

Troy later in the season came back in a 2-2 tie game and then in the final matchup beat the club team 4-2.
