JR Vs Advantage

Game two on Saturday was a face-off against another split Boston Advantage squad (A mix between their tier 1 elite team and other ISL prep players).  The Wolverines started off slow and Connor Murray (Needham, Ma) was the saving grace as his kicked aside shot after shot.  Finally, the wolverines settled in and started to play tough hockey.  Halfway through the first half John Fanara (Dennis, Ma) forced a turnover and put a rocket top corner to take the 1-0 lead.  The play continued to go back and forth until Jon Hart (Bridgewater, Ma) found the back of the net with 10 seconds left in the period (assists from Kevin Doherty and DJ Walsh).  Connor Murray stayed strong through the game as the Wolverines took control of the second half.  John Murtagh (Milton, MA) found the back of the net with a slap shot from the point (assists from Dustin Walsh, and Merrek Peters).  Two minutes later Adam Lundberg (Winthrop, Ma) put a shot crossbar down from the top of the circle for his first of the year (Assists from Vincellette and Mitch Paulson).
Connor Murray recorded his 4th straight win and first shutout of the year (stopped all 23 shots).

"It's nice to see the team get on a hot streak and play with some confidence.  It's not easy to win 7 in a row and I hope we continue to move forward and build as a team" added Lounsbury
