The Jr. B hockey team took the ice this weekend to start off their season. They took on the Walpole Express but unfortunately could not skate away with the win. Billy Smith (Boston, MA) started things by finishing off a rebound after a low shot at the pads from John Sheil (Narragansett, RI). Kevin Seeley (Berkley, MA) then scored a power play goal set up by Dan MacInnes (Plymouth, MA) and Smith. Cody Norton (Essex, VT) tallied BA’s third and final goal in the contest after Matt Driscoll (Dedham, MA) and Ethan Charny (Chicago, IL) made some stellar plays and maneuvered around the neutral zone to set up Norton in front of the net. With a close 4-3 game with a minute left on the clock, BA pulled their goal tender for an extra skater in hope of tying the game up. Walpole score a lucky goal when clearing the zone that gave them a 5-3 victory of Bridgton.
Coach Meserve commented after the game, “there is a lot of room for improvement, but for our first game we played well.”
The Jr. B team will take the ice again as they travel to face the Valley Jr. Warriors on Sunday October 9th at 1:30 P.M.
