Jr. B Captures OT Win

The Jr. B hockey team traveled to North Yarmouth Academy this weekend and secured a 4-3 OT win.
After initially going down 1-0, Brian McKeown (Scarborough, ME) tied up the score with a power play goal. Johnny Sheil (Narragansett, RI) and Dusty Burke (Sherborn, MA) worked the puck down low to McKeown who circled out and beat the goalie with a well placed wrist shot. NYA came back strong with two more goals to take a 3-1 lead.

Cory Durkin (Narragansett, RI) lessened the gap to one with another BA power play goal. Matt Pagano (Cranston, RI) fed a pass to Durkin who beat NYA's goaltender with a wrist shot. It didn't take long for Durkin to net his second goal of the game and tie things up. Steve Trychon (Sterling, MA) and Bryson Weberg (Parksville, BC) worked the puck to the net where Durkin was able to capitalize and bury it deep.
With the score tied at 3-3, the game went into overtime. Burke scored the game winning goal just 16 seconds into overtime with assists from Durkin and Sheil. Sheil was able to move the puck to Durkin who fired a low wrist shot on goal. Burke was able to collect the rebound to put it away to win the game.
John Busa (Billerica, MA) was strong in net saving 27 of 30 shots in the game.
Coach Meserve was happy after the game commenting, "We had a great team win
tonight. We had low numbers and the 13 guys we had played like warriors. I couldn't of been anymore proud of the team tonight."
Up next, the team will travel to Manchester, NH where they will take on Southern New Hampshire University's club team on February 18th at 7:30 P.M.
