Late surge vaults Arrowhead past KMMO

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

January 31, 2017 — Don't get fooled by the final score. Arrowhead's 5-1 victory over the visiting Kettle Moraine/Mukwonago/Oconomowoc boys hockey team Jan. 31 was a lot closer than the final four-goal spread would indicate.

After two periods, the underdog Lasers were staying right with No. 3-ranked Arrowhead, battling the red-hot Warhawks to a 1-1 deadlock. Not only was the score tied heading into the third period, but the shots were even at 12 apiece.

Even though Arrowhead took a 2-1 lead with 13:02 remaining in the game when Patrick Berges scored after getting a nice assist from Connor Akers, the game was still up for grabs with just over 5 minutes to play.

Arrowhead hockey team battles past Waupun

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

January 25, 2017 — For the first time in recent memory, Arrowhead's No. 3 ranked boys hockey team faced adversity.

But don't panic, the Warhawks handled the pressure just fine.

After falling behind 1-0 after the first period, Arrowhead outscored host Waupun the rest of the way and downed the host Warriors, 4-2. The win was the 16th straight for the Warhawks.

AHS scored two goals each in the final two periods. The score tied at 2-2 after two periods, but freshman Will Bonk got the game winner in the third period, and Caleb Beversdorf iced the win later in the period with another goal. Connor Akers assisted on Bonk's goal, and Ben Beversdorf had the assist on his brother's goal.

Arrowhead strings together a set of lopsided wins

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

January 22, 2017 — Once the second period started, host Middleton never had a chance against the red-hot Arrowhead boys hockey team Jan. 20.

After taking a narrow 1-0 lead after the first period, the streaking Warhawks exploded for six unanswered goals against the Cardinals (8-6-0) in the second period and finished the night with an easy 8-0 victory.

The win was the 15th straight for No. 3-ranked Arrowhead. On the season, AHS stands at 16-1, the second best start in the 26-year history of the program. The 2002-03 team had a 16-0-1 mark after 17 games.

Arrowhead will play two games this week. On Jan. 24, the Warhawks will play at 7:30 p.m. against host Waupun, a team that beat Waukesha two weeks ago. On Jan. 25, the Warhawks will host Sheboygan. From there, they will return to Classic 8 Conference action when they host Kettle Moraine/Mukwonago/Oconomowoc at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 31.

"We had another nice game at Middleton," said AHS coach Carl Valimont. "The guys played within the structure of what we're trying to do and when we play like that, we can play some very good hockey. The guys have really bought into this thing. We had a big second period with six goals. There's no doubt that we wore them down with our forechecking."

Warhawk team stays on fire

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

January 15, 2017 — To say things are going well for the Arrowhead boys hockey team these days would be an understatement. The Warhawks are playing as well as any team in the state right now.

Arrowhead's brilliant run of success continued Jan. 14 when the Warhawks traveled to Fond du Lac and smashed the Cardinals, 6-0. AHS scored three goals in the first period and three more in the second.

The win over Fond du Lac (1-12-2) was the team's 14th straight victory, and it moved the Warhawks' overall record to 15-1. Their only loss came in the second game of the year when they fell to Neenah/Hortonville/Menasha by a 4-3 score.

That ties the second-best start in school history. The 2002-03 team won its first 21 games before losing in the regional finals. The state-championship team from 2008-09 also began the year at 15-1.

"The guys are playing well, no doubt about it," said Arrowhead coach Carl Valimont, who has led the Warhawks to its only two state tournament appearances. "The key to it all so far is that the guys have bought into the system. They know what it takes for us to be successful. We have to share the puck, play as a team. We didn't do a great job of that early in the season but now they're playing together as a team. Like I tell them all the time, one or two guys can't win a hockey game."

Double Trouble: Beversdorf twins serious problem for opponents

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

January 10, 2017 — Small in stature, big in heart. There's no better way to describe identical twins Ben and Caleb Beversdorf of the Arrowhead boys hockey team.

At 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, the Arrowhead seniors might not appear menacing when they take to the ice. But looks can be deceiving. Just ask anyone who's ever played against them.

"The Beversdorf brothers were born 15 years too late," said highly successful Arrowhead coach Carl Valimont. "Had they played with us 15 years ago and with the way the game was called back then, they would have been dynamite. They just love to hit, love to forecheck, love to play the game. The game is called a lot tighter now, so they have to be careful. We need them on the ice, not in the penalty box. They both have done a lot better this year keeping their emotions in check. Both of them are having outstanding seasons."

After winning two more games last week, the Warhawks are off to one of the best starts in program history. Prior to their Classic 8 Conference showdown on Jan. 10 with longtime rival Waukesha, Arrowhead was ranked No. 5 in the state and sported a 13-1 record, a mark that includes a 12-game winning streak. And the Beversdorfs are a big reason for that success.
