2 line nameverybody's mind and "new year, new me" is all over your timeline and news feed. my only resolution for e first batch of abc9 top plays of the week for 2016? continue to find the best of the best from all over siouxland. let's dive right in with a first...we're giving away 5000 dollars...well not me personally...but winnavegas did just that on last week. this is ann spulock from plainview
10:20 pm
scared of ice but i have a feeling she might like it a little more after this. from 90 feet away she sticks the puck into the cut out and into the net for 5- thousand big ones...that's a pretty great way to start 2016. we stay on the ice for play number .and actually plays number four. on saturday night, lkkinen of the musketeers...he works the give and go beautifully and goes top shelf ere grandpappy keeps the good stuff. take another look at how small that window is for pulkkinen, incredible accuracy. and on new year's s eve...evan wisocky...he's good at hockey. looking for the backdoor pass, but instead gets an assist off the blueliner and that's an impressive way to score your first goal with the team. to the hardwfor play number three...briar cliff runs so much, i get winded just hothe camera, but it also lets guys like bryan forbes and austin homan run the break. and homan has some hops... off the great no look feed from
10:21 pm
slams it home....more hoops coming up in a bit. eeli tolvanen of the musketeers isn't eligibthe nhl draft until 2017... but he's already considered a top ten prospect...and that's because he can do things like this. he rips a one-timer that has a jet stream behind it and makes a clark-cup winning goalie just look silly. and if the goal wasn't impressive enough...he's just 16 years old. apparently though, youth is a posie countdown this week. david wingett of winnebago--he's just a junior--you've seen him in this top spot before and i'd be willing to bet you'll see him here again. not many high school kids can pull off the monster alley oop off the backboard...but wingett makes it look easy. this kid is the real deal folks, and that's why david wingett locks up the top spot in the abc9 top plays of the week. chris: there wasn't a lot of high school basketball on the
