EDWARDSVILLE CRUISES BY EAGLES — The Bethalto Eagles ran into the MVCHA buzz saw on Monday, falling 13-1 to the Edwardsville Tigers.
The talented Tigers improved to 15-0 on the season in the MVCHA with the win. With the loss, the Eagles are now 7-9.
Bethalto sliced it to 3-1 when Jayden Kahl scored the lone goal for the Eagles in the first period. He got his own rebound and pounded it back in. Unfortunately Edwardsville scored 10 answered goals after that to post the lopsided win. The Tigers outshot the Eagles 50-9 in the contest.
