Sauer Named South Star of the Week
After sweeping Sugar Land to end what has been a dominant first season in existence, the Capitals continue to earn honors from the league as Alex Sauer has been named the Easton South Division Star of the Week. Kole Hudson was named the 2nd Star for his efforts during the weekend as well.
Newly acquired forward Alex Sauer, 19, made his presence felt this weekend as the South Division Champion Topeka Capitals finished their regular season with a three-game sweep on the road against Sugar Land. The native of Atlanta, Georgia, had seven points in the three wins, which included two goals, five assists and a +7 rating. On Friday, Sauer (5'10/160) had two assists in a 4-1 win. On Saturday, he added three more assists in a 10-2 win and on Sunday, Sauer had two goals, including the game-winner in a 7-1 win. In six games with the Capitals this season, Sauer has nine points. Sauer played almost the entire 2013-14 season for the Atlanta Fire 18U team in the NAPHL, where he led the team in scoring with 24 points in 22 games played. "Alex joined our team at the deadline and has been a valuable addition. He brings an offensive game that will help us down the stretch," said Topeka head coach Anthony Bohn.
Kole Hudson had five points during the series with two goals and three assists to earn the 2nd Star Of the South Division.
