10/11/2017 Robins @ Anoka-Hennepin

The Robins are now 6-0 on the season after a hard fought 6-3 win over the Anoka-Hennepin Mustangs.  The Robins maintained a pretty high level of control over this game right from the start, but the Mustangs did a good job of keeping things just tight enough that the Robins really had to work to earn the win.  The Robins held a 3-0 lead at halftime, led by a pair of first half goals from Izear Joiner.  Another 3 goal spurt in the middle of the second half had the Robins leading 6-1 with 8:13 remaining, however the Mustangs added 2 goals in the final 7 minutes to keep things interesting.  Joiner finished the game with 3 goals and 1 assist.  Other goals were scored by Sam Roles, Brendan Bosker-Elliott and Calvin Gerdt.  Assists were credited to Bosker-Elliott, Roles, Marcus Brady and goalkeeper Vincent Luu.  Luu also finished the game with 18 saves.  Ethan Sullivan led the defensive effort with 6 blocked shots.  The Robins are on the road next Monday, at Highview Middle School, to face the Mounds View-Irondale-Roseville Rams.
