The​ ​Innova​ ​Industries​ ​Pee​ ​Wee​ ​B​ ​team​ ​faced​ ​off​ ​against​ ​the​ ​Park​ ​Rapids​ ​Panthers​ ​in​ ​their​ ​first game​ ​of​ ​the​ ​season​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Panther​ ​ice.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​nothing​ ​better​ ​than​ ​the​ ​crisp​ ​air​ ​hitting​ ​your face​ ​and​ ​the​ ​sharp​ ​slicing​ ​sound​ ​the​ ​blades​ ​make​ ​on​ ​fresh​ ​ice​ ​and​ ​you​ ​could​ ​tell​ ​the​ ​Otters were​ ​pumped​ ​with​ ​high​ ​energy​ ​and​ ​determination.​ ​

Griffin​ ​Babolian​ ​sailed​ ​one​ ​past​ ​the​ ​Panther goalie​ ​with​ ​a​ ​nice​ ​pass​ ​from​ ​Landon​ ​Schulz​ ​at​ ​the​ ​9:26​ ​mark​ ​if​ ​the​ ​first​ ​period.​ ​The​ ​Panthers answered​ ​back​ ​but​ ​a​ ​goal​ ​from​ ​Schulz​ ​off​ ​of​ ​an​ ​assist​ ​from​ ​​ ​Avery​ ​Kenyon-Woessner made​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​let​ ​them​ ​know​ ​that​ ​the​ ​Otters​ ​were​ ​in​ ​the​ ​game.

Second​ ​period​ ​was​ ​eventful​ ​in​ ​the​ ​quick​ ​goal​ ​battle​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Otters​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Panthers​ ​with​ ​some heavy​ ​penalty​ ​box​ ​time​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Otters.​ ​Brayden​ ​Nelson​ ​made​ ​the​ ​goalie​ ​spin​ ​with​ ​his​ ​goal​ ​at​ ​the 12:48​ ​mark​ ​off​ ​of​ ​a​ ​quick​ ​shot​ ​from​ ​Wyatt​ ​Briese.​ ​Nelson​ ​again​ ​came​ ​out​ ​and​ ​skated​ ​one​ ​up unassisted​ ​to​ ​tie​ ​it​ ​up​ ​4-4​ ​at​ ​the​ ​5:29​ ​mark.​ ​Babolian​ ​and​ ​Nelson​ ​put​ ​the​ ​Otters​ ​up​ ​quickly​ ​after at​ ​the​ ​4:28​ ​mark.​ ​The​ ​defensive​ ​game​ ​in​ ​the​ ​second​ ​was​ ​held​ ​strong​ ​with​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​combo​ ​of lines​ ​including​ ​Bailey​ ​Danner,​ ​Davis​ ​Shol,​ ​Ian​ ​McCollough​ ​and​ ​Milton​ ​Tungseth.

Third​ ​period​ ​the​ ​Otters​ ​sealed​ ​the​ ​deal​ ​with​ ​goals​ ​from​ ​Babolian​ ​with​ ​a​ ​stealthy​ ​assist​ ​from Tungseth​ ​and​ ​another​ ​to​ ​help​ ​the​ ​Otters​ ​win​ ​their​ ​season​ ​opener​ ​with​ ​the​ ​final​ ​goal​ ​from​ ​Nelson and​ ​an​ ​assist​ ​for​ ​Babolian.

Sunday​ ​it​ ​was​ ​time​ ​to​ ​face​ ​off​ ​against​ ​Brainerd​ ​Black​ ​on​ ​home​ ​ice.​ ​The​ ​Innova​ ​Pee​ ​Wee​ ​B Otters​ ​came​ ​out​ ​ready​ ​to​ ​protect​ ​their​ ​ice.​ ​First​ ​period​ ​was​ ​all​ ​about​ ​the​ ​defensive​ ​game​ ​as​ ​the Otters​ ​tried​ ​to​ ​defend​ ​their​ ​goalie,​ ​Brady​ ​Metcalf,​ ​as​ ​much​ ​as​ ​possible.​ ​Brainerd​ ​peppered Metcalf​ ​in​ ​the​ ​first​ ​period​ ​leaving​ ​the​ ​score​ ​0-6.​ ​Kenyon-Woessner​ ​put​ ​one​ ​past​ ​Brainerd​ ​with strong​ ​passing​ ​from​ ​Briese​ ​and​ ​Nelson.​ ​The​ ​Otters​ ​worked​ ​hard,​ ​had​ ​good​ ​communication​ ​and passing​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​game.​ ​The​ ​final​ ​goal​ ​from​ ​Babolian​ ​with​ ​assists​ ​from​ ​Schulz​ ​and​ ​Kenyon Woessner​ ​put​ ​another​ ​one​ ​on​ ​the​ ​board​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Otters​ ​but​ ​it​ ​wasn’t​ ​enough​ ​to​ ​call​ ​it​ ​a​ ​win. These​ ​Otters​ ​are​ ​already​ ​making​ ​plans​ ​for​ ​a​ ​rematch.

This​ ​team​ ​has​ ​heart​ ​and​ ​drive,​ ​they​ ​will​ ​be​ ​fun​ ​to​ ​watch​ ​grow​ ​in​ ​the​ ​coming​ ​games.​ ​The​ ​Innova Industries​ ​Pee​ ​Wee​ ​B​ ​Maroon​ ​team​ ​is​ ​coached​ ​by​ ​Ryan​ ​Tungseth,​ ​Josh​ ​Taylor​ ​and​ ​has​ ​strong dedication​ ​from​ ​players:​ ​Davis​ ​Shol,​ ​Brayden​ ​Nelson,​ ​Bailey​ ​Danner,​ ​Evan​ ​Bowman,​ ​Milton Tungseth,​ ​Ian​ ​McCollough,​ ​Griffin​ ​Babolian,​ ​Landon​ ​Schulz,​ ​Wes​ ​Carlson,​ ​Avery Kenyon-Woessner​ ​and​ ​Brady​ ​Metcalf.
