Jacobs scores five in Berkshire’s win over Cuyahoga Heights

Jack Jacobs scored five goals and added an assist in leading Berkshire to a 6-1 win at Cuyahoga Heights on Thursday.

The win was the first for the Badgers over the Red Wolves in many years.

“This is the first time we have beaten Cuyahoga Heights in a few years, and it feels good to show that we can score and continue to be a threat,” said Berkshire coach Nicholas Fejedelem. “We look forward to a great year.”

Trent Hornak also scored for the Badgers and Joey Czekaj pitched in with an assist.

“Jack Jacobs is coming off of a record year his previous season, and as a senior, looks to be reliable to be one of the go-to shooters we have,” Fejedelem said. “He currently leads the team in goals.”

The Badgers controlled the flow of play and worked hard to create their scoring opportunities.

“We stepped up as a united front and worked the ball well around the field,” Fejedelem said. “The team plays selflessly and strives for victory. Trent Hornak and Joey Czekaj work the ball around well and utilize their switching skills to our outside mids. In particular, Eric Hotchkiss does a great job opening up.”

Jake Starr recorded four saves in goal while Roman Percic finished with one.

The Badgers are now 1-1 on the season. They travel to Grand Valley on Tuesday.
