The Park City Red routed Bingham at home Wednesday night, moving to 4-0 on their season. Following an early goal by Bingham, the Red began to absolutely pour it on their opponents, winning 9-1. 

Eight players found the back of the net, including one defenseman. The performance fired up the Red’s coach Mike Adamack, who believes his team is laying a foundation. 

“My focus this year is (on) trying to build and establish our program as a whole,” said Adamack, who’s got an inexperienced squad with seven to eight newcomers. “We want kids, young kids (like) 7-year-old hockey players to want to play high school hockey in Park City, and I think this group of young men is doing a really good job of doing that (inspiring them).”

He said he is happy as more local players are starting to suit up for his squads rather than solely training and playing for their club or other teams. 

Red’s Vincent Billanti slides a shot past Bingham’s keeper in the 9-1 win. Billanti is one of the players coach Mike Adamack says is doing a great job of establishing the program for future generations.

Next on the agenda for Park City will be getting to full-ish strength and preparing for UCI North, who will arrive at Park City Ice Arena next Wednesday night. UCI North, on paper at least, doesn’t look to pose as stiff a challenge as Bingham. However, Adamack is confident his boys will be ready to go and won’t overlook them.

Following Wednesday evening’s victory, “Party in the U.S.A” rang about the corridors of the Ice Arena, as the close-knit crew soaked in the moment of the regular-season victory. 

The puck will drop next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Entry is free, but if you want a glass-side seat it’s best to arrive early, as the stands were packed Wednesday. Park City, who has three recent state titles (’20, ’21, ’22) to their name, will be looking to improve to 5-0 on their season.

The Bingham goalie tries unsuccessfully to thwart one of Cody Wheelwright’s two goals Wednesday. Wheelwright and the rest of the Red’s will lace ’em up next week against UCI North, also at home.
