The Jr. A team took the ice for what promised to be a close, hard fought game against the National Sports Academy (NSA). For the first period, play was evenly matched, remaining scoreless until the last two minutes of the period. With NSA in the penalty box, Jimmy Magrath (Medfield, MA) and Colin Edwards (Winchester, MA) exchanged passes in front of the net before Edwards tallied the first goal of the game for BA.
The second period was played in a similar style to the first. The play was back and forth and it seemed as if BA would hold their 1-0 lead heading into the third. With one minute on the board, NSA snuck a goal past BA goaltender Jordi Vaan Gaal (RyMenam, Belgium) to tie things up. BA was still looking to hold the lead at the end of the second, as Dylan Larrow (Ludlow, MA) netted a rebound off a shot from the point taken by Cam Kennedy (Lynn, MA).
NSA was looking for a comeback early in the third period as they score the game tying goal right away. It looked as if the game would enter into overtime, until Ryan Connors (Marshfield, MA) finished a pass from Magrath on another power play to take the lead. While NSA pulled their goalie for a man up advantage, Sam Scannell (Glastonbury, CT) buried a pass from Connors with just under a second left in the game.
