Comets blank Klamath Falls

Jake Randol and Bryce Crawford each scored three goals and Lucas Paulsen stopped 25 shots for his second straight shutout as surging Crater tuned up for tonight's showdown against Ashland by blanking Klamath Falls 8-0 in Southern Oregon League hockey at The RRRink in Medford.

Randol raised his goal total to 33 and also had three assists for the Comets (7-5-2, 23 points), who moved past idle South Medford into third place. Nine Crater players had points in the game.

Crawford scored on a pair of rebounds and a wicked slap shot from the blue line to become the fourth player in the league to score 20 goals this season.

Paulsen, a 14-year-old freshman, became the first goalie in the league this season to record back-to-back shutouts, both coming against Klamath Falls. Crawford had also recorded a shutout for the Comets on Feb.7 against North Medford, stretching the team's streak to 137 minutes without allowing a goal.

Klamath Falls (0-13-0, 0 points) had a 25-24 advantage in shots but failed to score on four power plays and was blanked for the third straight game and fourth time this season.

Klamath Falls 0 0 0 — 0

Crater 3 3 2 — 8
