Bluebirds halt losing streak
The Janesville Bluebirds snapped a five-game losing streak in a big way Thursday night.
Cullen Schumacher had a natural hat trick and Ty Perkins had two goals and six assists to lead the city’s high school boys co-op team to a 14-0 Big Eight Conference win over Madison East/La Follette.
Janesville (9-13-1, 5-7-1) led 7-0 after one period and allowed the visitors only one shot on goal the entire game.
“It’s a matter of coming out and working hard each shift, and trying to get better each and every shift, and I thought we did that tonight,” Janesville coach John Mauermann said. “Obviously they’re (East/La Follette) down, but we did things the right way and played very unselfish.”
Janesville wraps up the regular season with a conference game at Sun Prairie on Saturday night.
