Sat. Dec. 6 Highlights
 
A Cole Poliziani goal with 2:52 remaining lifted Salisbury to a hard-earned 4-3 win over host Williston-Northampton today.

On the winning goal, Williston was breaking out of the zone when the puck hit a linesman standing against the boards just outside the blue line and deflected onto the stick of the junior from Oakville, Ontario, who fired it under the crossbar, beating Williston junior goaltender Shane Mason -- and popping the top off the water bottle as well. Jordan Kaplan and Quincy Gregg were credited with assists on the play.

Salisbury head coach Andrew Will wasn’t around to see the end of this one, as he was ejected 39 seconds into the third period. Salisbury senior Kale Kane was assessed... read more
 
 
 

 
Friday's Notes: A Little Controversy
 
The end of today's Rivers at Thayer game, a 2-1 overtime win by the hosts on Lincoln Griffin's second goal of the game, was marred by controversy.

The winning goal came about because the referee, who was behind the net on the side away from the play, failed to blow his whistle when his view of the puck, being covered up by Rivers goalie Ryan Colena, was blocked. In those situations, if the ref loses sight of the puck, he blows the whistle. This did not happen.... read more
 
 
 

 
Wed. Dec. 3, 2014 Highlights
 
Nothing was decided as two of the top teams in prep hockey, Cushing Academy and host Dexter, battled to a 2-2 tie here this afternoon.

The game was an up-and-down affair with more skating than playmaking. That said, it was compelling viewing for an early December matchup.

Cushing got on the board just 57 seconds in, as top line winger Bailey Conger, with his back practically to the wall in the left corner, spotted d-man Patrick Horrocks breaking toward the net and hit him with a picture-perfect pass.

Dexter would get it back with a power-play tally by Kevin Hock with 1:35 left in the period. The play started when Bryan Green, from behind the goal line, spotted Sean Keohan on the point. Keohan fired on net and Kevin Hock neatly tipped the puck past Cushing’s Daccord.

After the tying goal, Dexter kept the pressure on in the Cushing end, but to no avail. The period ended at 1-1.

Dexter had a decided edge in play in an up-and-down second period.... read more
