In a game that included 10 goals and 15 penalties, the Brunswick School ice hockey team prevailed against Hoosac School on Saturday at Hartong Rink, 7-3 – the first of its two latest victories before its home crowd.
Bruins coach Mike Kennedy noted visiting Hoosac and was a former NEPSAC Division II rival.
“In 2007, in fact, when the Bruins were led by the dynamic duo of Justin Letizia (42 G-29A-71P) and Christian Oberbeck (36G-32A-68P), the Owls knocked off ‘Wick in the NEPSAC semifinals before going on to win the title.”
This matchup went in the Bruins’ favor, as the home team built a 6-1 lead through two periods and held on for its 10th league win of the season.
Junior defenseman Luc Lampert recorded his first two goals as a Bruin to highlight the victors’ scoring.
“Too many penalties on both sides took away from any real flow to this one, but ‘Wick did what it needed to do tonight after grinding through a week of midterm exams,” Kennedy said.
Today at Hartong Rink, Kennedy noted that Brunswick played two strong periods against Elite Hockey Academy, building a 7-2 lead early in the third, before getting a bit sloppy in the final seven minutes and giving up three consecutive tallies in 7-5 triumph
Two firsts of the season came in the contest for the Bruins. Junior defenseman Carter Grimes scored his first career goal, while junior Connor Choy notched his first point of the season for Brunswick. Choy stepped up to play a solid forechecking game on the wing and was rewarded with an assist in the winning effort.
With their third consecutive win, the Bruins raised their record to 10-7-1 overall.
For the Bruins, it’s off to Aurora, Ontario, on Thursday, as the Bruins will take part in the 39th Annual MacPherson Hockey Tournament at St. Andrew’s College for the first time in program history.
