Moose handle Cleveland, improve record to 16-6

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Jackson Hole Moose have now run their winning streak to six after edging Cleveland Saturday night to complete a sweep of the Barons. Despite again being outmanned on the bench, the Moose managed to keep up their winning ways with only 13 skaters over the weekend.

Tom Hartnett led the scoring in Friday’s 8-3 win with 4 goals. Alex Dewitz and Kyle Krauss also lit the lamp. Blueliner Nate Goss-Woliner added two assists.

Cleveland was decent but a bit disjointed in the opening game. Their passing was off and their goaltender had an off night.

The Barons were better Saturday and never let the Moose out of their sights. It was 2-2 after the first period, and 4-4 after two.

Moose newcomer Kyle Simmons was the difference, however. Powered by a pair of goals from Simmons’ and a 4-point night by AJ Sanders (1G,3A) the Moose hung on for the win against a last-ditch six-skater flurry at the end.

Sanders is enjoying a spectacular season with 18 goals and 35 assists in 22 games. Only Hartnett has more goals (19G,19A) as Jackson’s second-leading points getter. Krauss has 32-points (18G,14A) and Dewitz ranks fourth in scoring with 15 goals and 8 assists. They are the only Moose to dress for all 22 games.

The Moose travel to Bozeman next weekend for the final two games against a division rival. The point will be important in determining seeding for the Black Diamond Hockey League playoffs (March 9-10) in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Jackson has four more home games—a weekend against the San Francisco Draft Kings (February 23-24) and a final homestand with Vermont Flex (March 2-3).

The Moose are now 16-6 on the season.
