Northeast Hockey Showcase ... Day 1

The Wolverines are spending Thanksgiving Weekend at the Northeast Hockey Showcase in Tilton, NH. The tournament features 20 teams from the US and Canada, with each team playing four 30 minute mini-games. The top 8 teams will advance to the quarterfinals on Sunday.

In game 1 on Friday, BA faced the South Jersey Raptors of the IJHL. After 3 days off, BA came out a bit sluggish, but quickly began to get back to form en route to a 4-1 victory. Matt DelGiudice started the scoring midway through the first half. DJ haskins scored his 4th goal in four games to make it 2-0 at the break. BA capitalized on 2 power plays in the second half with Garret Collins and Eric Clemmenson scoring. The only disappointment was allowing a goal with less than 1 second to play. Mike Pearless picked up the victory in net making 7 saves.

In game 2, the Wolverines faced the host Tilton school and won 2-0. The entire game was a defensive chess match as the Wolverines outshot Tilton 9-7 for the game. Tom Paine scored the gamewinner with 52 seconds remaining, and Quinlan Junta added an emptynetter to seal the game. Steven Sisler made 7 saves for the win.

Day 2 features games versus Banff Academy of Alberta and Webster Academy of Quebec.
