BA COMEBACK FALLS SHORT 7-6
Bridgton Academy has had trouble scoring at times this season. Unfortunately, they needed one more goal. Down 4-0 to the New England Stars, BA used the second and third periods to start their comeback. In the second period, goals by Mike Iacobucci(Franklin, MA) and Patrick Sen(Niles, IL/Loyola Academy) cut the Stars' lead 4-2. However, the Stars stuff two more in at the end of the second to make it a 6-2 game. With a few minuted remaining in the second period, Tad Gold(Oaks Bluff, MA/Martha's Vineyard High) banged in a power play goal. Sen and Tim Haroules(Westford, MA/Westford Academy) picked up the assists.
Down 5-3 starting the third period, BA went to work. Goals by Gold and Tom Macinnes (Plymouth, MA/Plymouth North High)made it 6-4. The Stars managed to get their 7th goal off a turnover in the high lot. Down 7-4, BA again battle back with Jake Donahue(Swampscott, MA) blasting one in from the point and Sen adding his second goal with about 5 minutes to play. Unfortunately, 7-6 was as close as BA would get. With an extra attacker on, BA piled the shots on the Stars' goalie, but couldn't find the back of the net. For the game, BA outshot the Stars 64-31.
