Posted by: Ryan Evans on Mon Mar 14th 2016 3:01pm

Team America (13-2-2-0, 28 points) started fast and fended off a late Warriors comeback for a 6-4 win Saturday afternoon in Richfield.

It was the World Police's second straight win and fifth in their last six games.
After ending the first period tied at two, Team America rattled off four straight goals to build a 6-2 lead. Warriors goals late in the second and midway through the third cut that lead to two, but Team America held on for the victory.

Forwards Justin Schwechter (2+1) and Chris Bixby (1+2) led the way with three points a piece. Schwechter and defenseman Joseph Blaney each notched a brace in the win as well.

Team America (12-2-2-0, 26 points) got back on the winning track Sunday night, prevailing in a back and forth, high-scoring affair over the Grizzlies, 7-6.

It was the World Police's sixth one-goal win of the season.

The two teams traded goals throughout the game. Team America never led by more than two, despite out-shooting the Grizzlies, 57-34. Goals late in the second and early in the third from forwards Matt Fairbanks and Ryan Evans stretched the World Police's lead to 7-5, which proved to be all the separation they needed.

Fairbanks, and his newly star-spangled twig, had a big game, leading Team America with a hat trick and five points. Fairbanks now has seven goals and 11 points in the World Police's last four games and 10 goals and 21 points in his last seven games.


RECAP: Game 15 vs. Spartans (Feb. 28, 2016)

Posted by: Ryan Evans on Tue Mar 01st 2016 12:46pm

After a two-week layoff, a sluggish Team America (11-2-2-0, 24 points) got a big time wake up call Sunday night, succumbing to the Spartans (4-11-0-0, 8 points), 8-3.
The loss snaps Team America's eight game unbeaten streak and shrinks its lead atop the standings to two points.

The World Police finally met a deficit they couldn't overcome in this one. The Spartans jumped out to 3-0 and 4-1 leads in the first period and never looked back. Team America struggled to contain the Spartans' fast break offense, allowing numerous breakaways and odd-man rushes that led to goals against.

Forwards Justin Schwechter (9) and Matt Fairbanks (10) and defenseman Zach Wilkinson (20) scored for the World Police.

Team America's (11-1-2-0, 24 pts) resiliency was on display Sunday night in Inver Grove Heights as the World Police erased a two-goal third period deficit en route to a 5-3 win over the Chiefs.

Team America has now won three straight games and is unbeaten in its last eight contests.

Trailing, 3-1, entering the third period, Team America rattled off four unanswered goals in the final frame to seize victory. Forward Matt Fairbanks led the World Police's charge with two goals, including the game-winner midway through the third.

The Warriors pulled within 3-1 in the second, but never got closer than that. Team America rattled off the game's next nine goals, including a six-goal outburst in the third period.
