BULLDOGS BITE WOLVERINES
The Boston Bulldogs took apart BA Sunday afternoon 8-2. The Bulldogs simply outworked and outplayed the unenergized BA Team. Through 1 period, the Bulldogs led 4-0 and outshot BA 19-3. The 2nd and 3rd period where a much better indicator of how BA is capable of playing. The Wolverines brought back their hard nose style and manged to pressure the Bulldogs. BA scored their first goal, when Mike Iacobucci (Franklin, MA) buried a rebound off a George Costa (Winthrop, MA) shot. Patrick Sen (Niles, IL) also added an assist on the play. BA then added their second goal of the game when Sen drove in a rebound off the stick of Kyle O'Connell (Bridgewater, MA). Their second goal came on the power play, which up to this point lacked any results. Costa picked up his second assist of the game, using his big 6'3" body to drive the net and engage Bulldog players. Goalie Ian Edwards (Linden, MI) finished with 25 saves through 30 minutes, while Goalie Robby Campbell (Braintree, MA) stopped 22 the rest of the way.
BA has some room for improvement and thus far has been unable to play a complete 60 minutes. If they want to be successful Coaches Lounsbury and Meserve will have to figure a way to light a fire under them.
