NORTH BRIDGTON, ME—The Junior Hockey Wolverines hosted National Sports Academy for two games this past weekend at Bridgton Ice Arena.
In game one on Saturday night, the Wolverines would find themselves in a 1-0 deficit after one period of play. In the second frame, the Wolverines would explode for four goals from Tyler Burton (Wabash, NF), Zach Lemerand (Grosse Ile, MI), and two from Connor Demore (Watertown, MA). Ryan Slatky gave BA great goaltending between the pipes to earn the victory, with a final score of 4-1.
In game two on Sunday, the Wolverines would exchange goals in the first period with NSA to find themselves in a 1-1 tie after the first frame. BA’s first goal came from Andrew Irving (Beverly, MA) on the man advantage. BA would then surrender three second period goals, which resulted in them trailing 4-1 after two periods of play. The Wolverines would find energy and urgency in their game to rally in the third period. BA would register two goals in the final period from Trip Franzese (Marblehead, MA) and Irving for his second tally of the afternoon but, it was too little too late and BA fell to a final score of 4-3 to split the weekend with NSA. Both Nicolas Dupuis-Gaudreault (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC) and Mike DeFilippo (Montreal,QC) would see time in net.
The Wolverines are back in action this weekend when they host the Boston Junior Bruins Saturday night, then are on the road Sunday for a tilt just over the border against Stanstead Prep on Sunday afternoon.
