After surrendering the first goal, the RWD junior varsity Cheavers rallied back for a 3-1 win against Tomah/Sparta at the Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA) on Tuesday (Dec. 7,2021) night. 

The visitors hit the board just 3:07 into the contest on a powerplay opportunity, but that was the only shot to elude freshman Alex Griebe in the RWD net. He went on to a 26-save win, including all 17 shots in the second and third periods. 

Yevgeny Dedun knotted the game at 1-1 with his solo effort 3:12 after the T/S tally and the game winner came from Caleb Eastman late in the period, from Kaden Uminski and Mark Othmer.  

That lead held up until the third period when Uminski added some insurance with his goal, helped by Alec Breunig. The win boosted the season record for the JV Cheavers to 5-2 and the, along with the varsity squad will next be in action at State Line Ice and Community Expo (SLICE) on Thursday night.
