Another game, another close win for the Brunswick School ice hockey team.
As coach Mike Kennedy noted, the Bruins are learning how to win tight, low-scoring games in recent weeks and they did so once again in a 3-2 victory against a scrappy Albany Academy squad on Friday night at Hartong Rink.
As Kennedy also mentioned, the Bruins are also getting much-needed secondary scoring and offensive contributions from the blueline. Against visiting Albany Academy, junior Ryan Wachtel, senior Daniel Hu and junior defenseman Luc Lampert each registered goals for Brunswick. Senior defenseman Niko Cadoret and junior forwards Jake Minella and Luke Drury earned key assists, with Drury setting up two goals in the winning effort.
The Bruins led 2-0 after one period and 2-1 after two periods of action. Although they were unable to put away the Cadets earlier in the contest, the Bruins, as Kennedy described, played a dominant third period to seal the win before the visitors finished the evening’s scoring with a goal in the last eight seconds.
“Senior Brendan Holahan battled on every puck and made two saves in the final stanza that could have changed the ultimate outcome,” Kennedy said. “Kudos to the co-captain.”
Brunswick travels to Delbarton School in New Jersey on Tuesday for a non-league matchup. For the season, the Bruins sport a record of 15-9-1. The Bruins have won four straight games, with three of the victories coming by one goal.
