Huskies Play a Tight Weekend Match up!

Woonsocket/Scituate jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead, on two power play goals when Keegan Hanley (Rancourt/ R. Cordeiro) light the lamp at 9:22 of the first period, making it 2-1. The Huskies swiftly responded with their own power play goal with a bullet from the point from Austin Hogan (unassisted) at 11:13 knotting the contest at 2-2.

Again, Woonsocket/Scituate opened the scoring at 3:04 with another power play goal, taking the lead once again, 3-2. The Huskies took the attack to their opponent in this period compiling 23 shots on the opposing goaltender, he stopped all but one, when Ryan Cordeiro (unassisted) crashed the net and put one passed him, again tying the score at 3-3. But, as time would have it, Woonsocket/Scituate would take the lead at 11:36, score; 4-3.

The third period displayed Mt. Hope's spirit. Nate Cordeiro scored at 2:35 (R. Cordeiro/Rancourt) tying the score yet again 4-4. Regrettably, the Huskies were unable to muster any more scoring opportunities due to the penalties that were incurred. As a result, with matching penalties Woonsocket/Scituate was able to score the game winning goal at 4:13 of the third period; 5-4. We scrambled to get our goalie in a position to pull him, but every time we tried, there was either a whistle, or another face off in our end preventing us to make it happen. Plus, Woonsocket/Scituate bottled us up so well in the neutral zone, it was difficult to pull Kyle Depoy.

 

Then at 9:44, Woonsocket/Scituate, guaranteed the win with another goal making the final score of this game was 6-4. 

Unfortunately, the game was marred by useless/ senseless penalties. Fourteen (14) penalties in total were called. (Eight (8) penalties were assessed on Woonsocket/Scituate and six (6) penalties on Mt. Hope). 

 "If there are any lessons to be learned from tonight's game; they need to learn they cannot play "catch-up hockey and you can't win games sitting in the penalty box, it's just that simple". They have to learn to play through the rough spots in the game. "The real bright spot of the game is that we had 51 shots on goal!" said Coach O
