On Tuesday, the Flyers couldn’t find their offense in a 6-0 Southern Ohio Conference loss to Lucasville Valley. Mahlmeister was the bright spot with 11 saves.
St. Joseph rebounded with a 7-1 win over the Chesapeake Panthers on Thursday.
Jackson Rowe had a big game offensively with three goals while Mathew Sheridan and Roach scored two goals each.
