Defense, balanced scoring fuel Ice Ads’ success

Mike Krahl is used to scoring four goals or more in a hockey game.

“I’ve had a few sixes and a few fives,” said Krahl, a Farragut High School junior forward, following the Ice Admirals’ 8-2 victory against Metro Thursday, Dec. 15, in the Icearium.

“He’s capable of doing that each and every game,” FHS head coach Craig Swinson said, as Farragut runs its record to 3-3.

Forward Adam Lanigan drove home one goal against Metro Thursday, “Adam is another [top scorer],” Swinson said. “He usually scores in bunches. And his little brother, Jake, scores like that as well. We’re pretty equal in goal-scoring.”

Jeremy Johnson, Mike Hutson and Jesse Volpe also scored for Farragut

Swinson said his defense “Is play very well. Mike Hutson and Jeremy Johnson both played exceptional tonight. When you can limit the shots to less than ten, that’s pretty substantial.

“I got to play every player on the bench, everybody got to skate a lot,” Swinson added. “That’s what we really wanted to do.”

Swinson reflected on the team’s first six games, starting with a 4-3 loss to unbeaten Bearden Dec. 8 where the Ice Ads blew a 3-1 lead.

“That one hurt,” Swinson said. “But other than that I’m very pleased with the team and their effort. On defense, all four have been outstanding.” In addition to Hutson and Johnson, Swinson said that foursome also includes Diana Deer and John Wilson.
