Hockey Ads, Whalers tie


Streaks are made to be broken and the Farragut High School hockey club had its three-game Knoxville Amateur Hockey Association winning streak snapped Thursday, Jan. 26, at the Icearium.

A modest string of victories came to an end for the Ads with a 5-5 tie against the Knoxville Whalers. The Whalers, who fell behind 2-0 early, looked nothing like league cellar dwellers.

“They’ve really improved,” said Farragut junior center Thomas Detchemendy, who had a hat trick for the Admirals. “We beat them 11-1 [in the Hockey Hoe Down Tournament] the last time we played them.”

FHS head coach Rob Despins said, “We didn’t play all that bad but it just wasn’t our night. We just didn’t get the bounces.

Farragut (4-1-2) darted ahead 1-0 on Detchemendy’s first goal with 10:45 left in the first period. Kyle Lindsay made it 2-0 a short time later.


After that, the Whalers (0-4-3) tallied three consecutive times before Detchemendy answered to knot the game by stanza’s end, Detchemendy completed his hat trick early in the third and gave the Ads another two-goal lead.

Gavin Gauld also scored a goal for Farragut.
