Jr. A Sweeps Ulysse Prep

Bridgton and Ulysse Prep took the ice Sunday morning for a second contest this weekend. After the close, physical game the previous night, both teams came out on fire. Bridgton was the first on the board as Jimmy Magrath (Medfield, MA) scored with assists from Brendan Glynn (Quincy, MA) and Colin Edwards (Winchester, MA). It didn't take long however for Ulysse to answer back with two goals in a row. Towards the end of the first period, Magrath tied up the game with an assist from Edwards.

Ulysse came out strong with the first goal in the second period, but Bridgton answered back as Ryan Connors (Marshfield, MA) netted a power play goal with an assist from Steve Bellew (Hingham, MA). With back and forth play, Ulysse was next to score. While it seemed like they would enter the third period with a one goal advantage, Kevin Seeley (Berkley, MA) was able to tie up the game with help from Tommy Graham (Medfield, MA) with one second left on the board.

In the third period, Bridgton was determined to take the lead. Alex Pompeo (Hingham, MA) scored with a well placed wrist shot, assisted by Edwards for a one goal advantage. A few minutes later, Magrath netted his third goal of the game unassisted to increase Bridgton's lead. Right off the next face-off, Zach Wells (Hyannis, MA) finished a feed from Conors for the Wolverine's seventh goal of the contest. Ulysse never backed down, netting a goal of their own in a similar style, off the very next face-off. The intensity increased a notch, and Edwards fed the puck to Glynn who buried a wrist shot as he was crossing the net. Ulysse was able to sneak one last goal past Bridgton's goalie Jordi Van Gaal (RyMenam,Belgium), but Bridgton walked away with a big 8-6 win.

This Wednesday the team will be on the road as they travel to Hebron Academy to play at 4:00 P.M.
