Big Week for the Giants

9-22- 2017
It was a big week for the Highland Park Giants Hockey Team. Coach Freeman’s Varsity Team collected
three wins against some of the top teams in our area. On Sunday evening, they played well in a 5-0
shutout against Loyola Academy. They were led by a strong Defense and Freshman Goaltender Jack
Manone. Manone had a busy evening with 30 saves. The well-balanced offense had goals from Tyler
Wiesman, Gabe Schlussel, Sam Frazer, Alec Powers and George Giese. Tuesday evening the Giants
prevailed against a Senior laden Latin Team 7-1. The Giants scoring barrage was helped by Michael
Gallo’s hat trick and four assists by Kyle Powers. Once again, the Goaltending and Defense came to play.
And to finish up the busy week, the Giants faced off against an extremely talented Lake Forest Scout
Team on Thursday evening. The Giants held back the aggressive Scouts in a 3-1 final. This was a
physical game with the Giants Defense and Goaltending coming up big time after time. Sam Frazer had
the game winning goal to lead the Giants. The Giants Varsity Hockey Team has been pulling solid
crowds ever since the season started. Come out and enjoy some competitive Hockey! For more on the

Message From Hockey Director Sean Freeman:

Please open and print the PDF file HP Giants Hockey Systems. Each player should add this to the three-ring binder that all players picked up at Coach Sean’s office last summer.
