The McFarland High School boys hockey team scored four second-period goals and outshot DeForest 41-21 in a 7-1 home victory over the Norskies on Dec. 3.

The Spartans, who led 1-0 after the first period on a goal by Cal DeChambeau, put the game away in the latter half of the second period.

Carson Lehnherr scored an unassisted goal at 7:46, Simeon Pommerening connected on the power play at 10:45 off assists from Chase Quelle and Max Binger, and Ashton Wendt scored an even-strength goal 25 seconds later with Lehnherr and Bryce Flemming getting the assists.

The Spartans widened their lead to 5-0 with 45 seconds left in the second period as Quelle found the back of the net on the power play off a Jack Bartzen assist.

McFarland continued its offensive spree in the third period as Grant Newcomer scored twice on Pommerening assists.

Goalie Gus Hoel appeared to be on his way to a shutout, but Isaac Knutson ruined that with one minute left in regulation as he put in the Norskies only goal.

Hoel made 21 saves for McFarland, which beat DeForest in the Nov. 26 season opener at Waunakee.

Goalie Joe Brethouwer saved 34 shots for the Norskies in the first two periods, and Alexander Kaminsky stopped seven shots after taking over the net in the third period.

The Spartans play a Badger South Conference game at home Friday Dec. 13 against Oregon with faceoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
