WOLVERINES END LOSING STREAK
Bridgton Academy ended a seven game losing streak by defeating the Ontario Hockey Academy 4-1. Bridgton has been playing some great hockey, but have had some real tough breaks of late.
In this contest, BA came out flying. Peppering the OHA goalie with 12 first half shots. OHA did manage to score on a loose puck, but BA answered right back when George Costa (Winthrop, MA/Winthrop High School) out muscled a OHA player for the goal. Nick Billingham (Oak's Bluff, MA/Martha's Vineyard High School) and Tom MacInnes (Plymouth, MA/Plymouth North High School) picked up the assist. Tied 1-1, BA responded five minutes later when Patrick Sen (Niles, IL/Loyola Academy) scored a power play goal with Mike Iacobucci (Franklin, MA/Franklin High School) and Tad Gold (Oaks Bluffs/Martha's Vineyard High School)grabbing assists. BA's power play was excellent moving the puck around and opening seems.
In the second period, BA continued to control the puck down low driving puck after puck to the OHA net. Sen scored his second goal of the game when he took a feed from Gold and went in on a breakway. He faked forehand and left a backhand right under the crossbar. Not to be outdone, Costa put in his second goal of the game when he banged in a Kyle O'Connell (Bridgewater, MA/B-R High School) shot. MacInnes also picked up his second assist of the game.
Ian Edwards (Linden, MI/Motor City Chiefs) stopped 14 shots and picked up the win for BA.
