BA (B) BEATS VINEYARD 6-1
The Wolverines welcomed the Martha's Vineyard Hockey Team to Bridgton Friday night. This "B" game for the Wolverines proved to be an exciting and entertaining affair.

"I thought we played pretty good as a team. It was great seeing guys like George Wickey(1 assist) and Shawn Wassel(1 assist) playing so well for us. Those guys have worked their behind off in practice in it showed tonight" said Head "B" Coach Mike Meserve.
Martha's Vineyard really brought a high energy and tempo system in play. They were not intimidated at all by the older and somewhat bigger Bridgton team. At 15:50 of the second period, Vineyard Captain Chris Davies, buried a shot into the upper corner and close the BA lead to 3-1. "That was a great shot. Davies has great hands, moves the puck well and obviously has a tremendous shot" said Coach Mike Meserve. That was as close as MV would get, in the third period BA scored 2 more and walked away with a 6-1 victory.
The Wolverines are off until after the Holiday Break, when they head south to the Eastern Junior Hockey League Showcase in Marlboro, MA. Before heading home, Martha's Vineyard defeated the Fryeburg/Lake Region Ice Cats 11-0. Bridgton Academy would like to thank Coach Mincone and his team for the visit and wish them good luck this season.
