The Jr. B hockey team took the ice against the Maine Wave this week and won with a score of 5-1. Bridgton took control of the game from the get go, and let up very few times throughout the game. With the Wolverines peppering the Wave with shots, five snuck by. Dan MacInnes (Plymouth, MA) led the scoring as he capitalized on a rebound set up by Kevin Seely (Berkley, MA) and Barry O’Neil (Falmouth, MA). Shortly after, Brian McKeown (Scarborough, ME) collected a rebound from Matt Pagano (Cranston, RI) and John Sheil (Narragansett, RI) to give BA a 2-0 lead. MacInnes tallied his second of the night off a rebound from Matt Driscoll (Dedham, MA) and Seely.
Later in the second period, Marquise Cotton (Washington, DC) and Chris Mini (Everett, MA) made a series of passes followed by a text book feed to Dylan Larrow (Ludlow, HS) who finished the play with a goal. With a 4-1 lead, Ethan Charny (Chicago, IL) tossed the puck high in the air above the goalie, and on a good bounce netted the fifth and final goal of the competition. John Busa (Billerica, MA) played in net for the Wolverines stopping 34 of the 35 shots that came his way.
While Bridgton played a great game, Coach Meserve was level headed after the win commenting, “We did just enough to win. Now we need to find the inner fire to learn how to compete for every puck.”
Up next, the Wolverines will take on Middlesex Community College on Saturday the 29th at 8:00 P.M.
