BA (Juniors) vs. Hebron Academy

NORTH BRIDGTON, ME—The Junior Hockey Wolverines hosted their in-state rivals, Hebron Academy on Wednesday afternoon at Bridgton Ice Arena.
The Wolverines came out of the gates flying with energy and a number of scoring chances. Andrew Irving (Beverly, MA) got the scoring started in the first period. BA faced adversity in the first period when they had to kill a major penalty, plus a 5-on-3 penalty for two minutes. Irving would strike again with an unassisted goal to put the Wolverines ahead 2-0 after one period of play.
The second period would find the Wolverines taking a 4-0 lead after goals from Tyler Etzkorn (Medfield, MA) on a tip in front of the Hebron net, and Brendon Duff (Stellarton, NS) finishing a pretty backhanded play. Hebron did tally their lone goal in the third period. The Wolverines got outstanding goaltending from Nicolas Dupuis-Gaudreault (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC) in their 4-1 win over Hebron Academy.
The Wolverines are back in action this weekend when they take part in the Northwood Tournament in Lake Placid, NY, playing four games over the weekend.
