Steel complete the weekend sweep over Fairbanks

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) — The Chippewa Steel completed their first ever sweep as an organization, topping Fairbanks 3-2 Saturday night at the Chippewa Ice Arena.

The game was scoreless until the second period, when Chippewa’s Connor Szmul scored on the rush to give them a 1-0 lead. The Ice Dogs though answered just a few minutes later, when Grant Ledford scored to make it 1-1. But later in the second, the Steel took back the lead when Jacob Dirks scored to make it 2-1. Then just before the end of the period, Chippewa drew a 5-on-3 power play and took advantage when Tomas Vochozka found the back of net making it 3-1. The Ice Dogs would score again in the third period, with a short-handed goal from Luke Ciolli, but would not come any closer.

Josh Langford was solid in net for Chippewa, stopping 24 of 26 shots on the night. The Steel are back in action next week at the Showcase Tournament in Blaine, Minnesota. They’ll open up with the Jamestown Rebels on Wednesday at 5 P.M.
