“This is a veteran type of type that has been through a lot and right from the start at the rink they were prepared and knew what to do,” Walker said. “We played really well. I couldn’t have come up with a better script to start the game than getting six quick ones right off the bat.”

Abram Henson said Edwardsville is a solid and deep team.

“They came out real strong and we came out the opposite,” he said. “This is a game we always have to get up for. I think we just weren’t ready for it. We played them 5-0 the last time, but I guess we thought it would be easier and we came out soft and got beat. After the first period, we held them to 2-0 over us. The next time we will play them will be the playoffs. We will have to be mentally prepared for that.”

Alton falls to 9-3; Edwardsville remains undefeated at 13-0.
