Max Prawdzik stopped 20 of 21 shots to lead Lone Star to a 3-1 win Friday night over Janesvilles, as the Brahmas sweep NAHL Robertson Cup semifinals. The former Brooks School standout, who will return to BU in September, made 30 saves in game one, a 3-2 overtime victory. Prawdzik has won eight of ten playoff games while ringing up a 1.71 GAA and a .913 save percentage. The Brahmas move on to Sunday’s championship game against the winner of today’s deciding game between Ashton and Aberdeen.
Meanwhile, Jake Oettinger, is again attending the prestigious Warren Strelow National Team Goaltending Camp in Plymouth, Mich.
