Choate Tops Loomis, 4-2

Wallingford, CT – Choate dumped 54 shots on Loomis senior goalie Steve Michalek today, and managed to get four shots past him, emerging with a 4-2 win.

Choate’s plan coming into the game was, according to coach Pat Dennehy, “to get the puck deep and get to the net.”

After a scoreless first period, Choate opened the scoring early when Adam Patel, a senior from Georgia,  put the Wild Boars up one just 1:16 into the second.

John Abraham responded for Loomis, picking up a loose puck in front to put it past Choate sophomore goaltender Alex Joyce at 7:53.

“We wanted to play with confidence,” Loomis coach Bob Howe said after the game. “We played a 1-2-2 and tried to keep it simple by getting the puck deep.”

At 11:30 of the second stanza with Choate on the penalty kill, Loomis’ Michalek attempted to clear a Choate dump-in from behind his net, only to be intercepted by Alex Hagen who passed it to a wide-open Dan Linell in front. Michalek raced back to the front of his goal, but Linell put the puck around him for the goal, his team-leading sixth of the year.

Junior Bill Seligman provided the eventual game winner to close out the second, putting Choate up by two.

Howe felt confident about his team’s chances going into the third period. “I told them that this is right where we want them to be. We wanted to keep the game close going into the third period and we knew we could put the puck in the net.”

Loomis captain Michael Blair did just that for the Pelicans, scoring at 3:11 to bring his team within one.

Alas, Choate kept up the pressure with its relentless forecheck.

“When you’re dealing with kids at this level, even though they were playing well, that’s tough to deal with but I thought it was telling of our team’s character when we went right back out and stuck to our game plan.” Dennehy said. “If we’re going to be one of the top teams in the league, my message to the guys is to prove it each and every period.”

Kyle Criscuolo ruined Loomis’ comeback for good, scoring with 58 seconds left to ice the game for Choate.

Loomis (0-2-2) will look to rebound against Avon (5-0) tomorrow at Avon’s Christmas Classic. Choate (4-1) will head to New Jersey this weekend to play in the Lawrenceville Tournament.

Wed. Dec. 15 Highlights

@ Brooks 4, St. Sebastian's 1: This, a Brooks win over St. Sebastian’s, probably hasn’t happened in a long time, if ever. We certainly can’t recall it. The hero for Brooks today was senior goaltender Tyler Stillings, who kicked out 40 of 41, losing the shutout in the final moments of the game. Junior Nick Potter (3a) factored in the three Brooks goals. The fourth Brooks goal was an empty-net tally.

@ Tilton 4, Exeter 0: Tilton senior goalie William Flachsbinder earned the shutout, kicking 25 Exeter shots away. Sophomore Harry Brockman (1g,1a) led the Rams offense.

@ Salisbury 7, Albany Academy 3: Junior D Marc Biega (2g,1a), senior Adam Platt (5a), and senior Jack Barre (1g,3a) led the Crimson Knights’ offense as they rallied from a 2-0 deficit after the first.

Gunnery 3 @ Taft 1: Gunnery senior Robert Segin lost his shut-out bid late in the third but stopped 24 of 25 Taft shots. Junior Drew Smolcynski had a short-handed tally in the second and an assist on the game-winning goal for The Gunnery.

Avon Old Farms 5 @ Deerfield 1: 
Avon exploded in the second with four goals from different scorers. Junior goaltender Michael Santaguida kicked out 30 of 31 for the win.

Brunswick 2 @ Trinity-Pawling 1: Senior Gryphon Richardson stopped 21 of 22 for the win. Alex Burdekin was the hard-luck loser for T-P, stopping 24 of 26. Senior forwards Bo Stafford (2g) and Tommy Dwyer (2a) led the Brunswick attack.

Kimball Union 7 @ Brewster Academy 3: Senior Ryan Cole (2g), senior D Pat Doherty (2g), and junior Dennis Kravchenko (1g, 3a) led the KUA attack, which exploded with five goals in the second period.

@ Portsmouth Abbey 7, St. Thomas More 2: Portsmouth Abbey got goals from six different scorers. PG Goaltender Craig Shea kicked out 57 in a losing effort for St. Thomas More.

@ Berwick 5, Pingree 3: Luke Bennett (2g,1a) and Dave Horan (2g) led the Berwick charge. Pingree junior Goaltender Scott Caradonna kicked out 35 in a losing effort; Berwick goaltender Alex Devine stopped 14 of 17 for the win.

Prep West Players of the Week
The Prep West Conference, seeking to carve out a more distinct identity for the league, has decided to pick a Player of the Week and a Goalie of the Week this season.

This week, the Player of the Week goes to junior Drew Smolcynski, a Hatfield, PA native playing for The Gunnery. Smolcynski had two of his team’s three goals in a 3-2 win over Berkshire last Wednesday, and that includes the game-winner with 27 seconds on the clock.

Goalie of the Week was Albany Academy senior Ben Halford, a Lenox, Mass. native who had three straight wins in leading his team to the Rider Cup championship over the weekend.

We were remiss in failing to post the Player of the Week and Goalie of the Week from the first week of the season. They were forward Penn Sednaoui, a Millbrook senior from Bedford, NY; and Mitch Gillam, Berkshire’s senior goalie from Peterborough, Ontario.

The Prep West Conference consists of Albany Academy, Berkshire, Canterbury, Gunnery, Millbrook, Pomfret, Williston-Northampton, and Winchendon.



Welcome Back!
Yesterday, Portsmouth Abbey head coach Kevin Morrissey returned to campus after a year-long deployment in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army Reserves. Needless to say, he is eager to rejoin the team. First, though, he will spend some time with his wife and two children. He will resume all coaching responsibilities when school resumes in January.

An Important Note

We are at that time of year when games turn from sprinkles into torrents. In the coming days, there will be many box scores to peruse on USHR, and, yes, there will be mistakes (not many, we hope) in those box scores. At prep games, there is no slow-motion replay to determine exactly who got the second assist on such-and-such a goal. Quite the opposite. Refs are tired, maybe worrying about their mortgage, or something going on at the 9-to-5 job, and might misread a uniform number. They go over to the scorer's table and report it. It gets duly entered on the game sheet. And the mistake winds up on USHR (though usually not for long because coaches have the power to change it, and generally do.)

Please remember that box scores appear in USHR because the coaches are kind enough to take the trouble to upload the info directly from their computer to the site. It does not go through anyone at USHR: we see only what you see. In most cases, the home coach in a game will upload the box score. In some cases, each coach will upload their own team's information.

We consider box scores to be the domain of the schools involved, and we do not touch them - ever. We will not change the scoring on a goal. We will not change shots on goal. Sorry, but it’s not our place, and we won’t do it. If it's an emergency and we get a specific request from a coach whose computer has turned to toast, we'll do it... otherwise, no.

Coaches can enter the system at any time during a season and correct a mistake in a box score, roster, schedule. If you feel like there is a mistake, please go to them. Writing to us at USHR about statistical errors in a box score is a waste of time. We may be sympathetic, but there is nothing we can do.

On the prep pages, particularly over the holidays , we will, time allowing, have highlights of certain games - short blurbs. Often these tidbits are taken off of the game sheet before coaches have a chance to get a close look at them. If you see a mistake in these highlights, do not worry. There is no connection whatsoever between these blurbs and the box scores. What we're doing with those blurbs is simply going with the
best available information at the time. If you see a mistake, wait for the actual box score, as it will likely be more precise.

All cumulative statistics on USHR are drawn directly from the box scores, which are dynamically interconnected. Statistics, especially in a fast-moving sport like hockey, are imperfect. Please keep that in mind. If you are worried about your son getting screwed out of an assist, it means you are not living in the moment and not enjoying the game to its fullest. And if your son is worried about the same thing, it probably means his head is not 100% into the game.

Enjoy the games! Enjoy the holidays! We are all very lucky. Indeed, but for a happy accident of birth, we could be stuck in North Korea, where winters are cold, hockey rinks nonexistent, and you might be lucky to get a raw turnip for dinner.



Worcester Gives Andover a Scare

Andover, Mass. – On paper, this looked like a Flood-Marr warm-up for Andover. Instead, they barely escaped, eking out a 5-4 win against a Worcester Academy team that had already lost to Cushing, 15-1, and Berwick, 11-2, in the young season.

Worcester came into the game looking to set the tone.

“What we wanted to do coming in was have the first two lines use their speed and be aggressive,” Worcester coach Kevin Magnani said after the game.

However, the Worcester forwards struggled early, as they were only able to muster one shot on Andover goalie Tyler Kirsch.

It was up to Worcester PG goalie Tim Corey, then, to give his team a chance, and he did, keeping them in the game through two periods, letting in only one goal during that span, a rebound to Andover senior Andrew Sullivan midway through the first.

The Hilltoppers eventually got on the board at 11:44 into the second.

Magnani said that when he realized his team could skate with Andover he let his first two lines attack more in the offensive zone. ”When we got that monkey off our back by scoring [in the second period] it really sparked us.”

“Their goaltender played very well. We had a lot of opportunities but just couldn’t get on the board. I think we had about 40 shots on him,” Andover coach Dean Boylan said. Going into the third, Boylan told his players to “keep it much more simple and get the puck deep.”

And they took his advice, scoring three unanswered goals on Corey within the opening half of the period.

When it looked like it was over for the Hilltoppers, Worcester PG Ben Kuzma scored at 7:15 to start the comeback.

After Andover put in a quick goal a few minutes later, Kuzma scored again.

With Andover down two men, Worcester freshman Cam Carbone muscled in a goal to bring his team within one with 41.5 seconds left. Howecver, that was as close as Worcester would get, as Andover was able to skate off with a 5-4 win. 

Andover (2-2) opens the Flood Marr Tournament against Milton (4-1) this Friday. Worcester (1-5) will face Princeton Day (2-1-1) in the Barber Tournament, also on Friday.

Belmont Hill  Comeback Sinks Lawrence
Belmont, Mass. – After being outplayed by Lawrence Academy for nearly two periods, and trailing 3-1 with 55 seconds left in the second, Belmont Hill got a huge opportunity in the form of a 5x3 power play – and they didn’t waste it. After coach Ken Martin called a time-out, during which he set up a play, it took all of seven seconds for junior forward Stephen Brennan to knock one past Lawrence junior goaltender Jordan Nathan to make it a one-goal game. That was the opening Belmont Hill needed heading into the second intermission. In the third, the Hillies added three more unanswered goals -- from Jimmy Vesey, Joe McNamara, and Brandon McNally -- and skated off with a 5-3 win.

McNally led the way for the winners with a four point effort (2g,2a). 

Linemates Andrew Cerretani (1g,1a), and Devin Tringale (1g,1a) led the Lawrence attack.

“We were down 3-1 to Nobles too,” said Martin. “I don’t know what it is, but rather than setting the pace ourselves, we let our opponents do it. But I was really proud of the way the kids came back from two goals down.”

Lawrence coach Kevin Potter said, “We were on them, and had a chance to put them away and we didn’t.  We are still coming together as a team.”



Baillargeon Too Much for Exeter

Exeter, NH -- Cushing Academy sophomore Robbie Baillargeon had a career day , notching four goals and adding an assist as the Penguins topped Exeter, 5-3,

Baillargeon, who had two even strength goals, one powerplay tally, and a shorthanded goal, opened the scoring for Cushing ten seconds into the first period, beating Exeter goalie Paul Roche on the glove side for his third goal of the year.

“He shoots. He’s not afraid to shoot,” Cushing coach Rob Gagnon said. “We expect him to be a kid who steps up in big games…games when it’s Exeter at Exeter -- and he did that today.”

After three more Baillargeon goals, Roche was pulled at 16:51 of the second period in favor of sophomore Ben Veres.

“There was a minute left in the second and I just wanted to restart and let the guys take a deep breath,” Exeter coach Dana Barbin said.

Chris Smith, a new junior from Toronto, put Exeter on the board at 7:59 of the second period, scoring on a cross-ice pass to the slot from Harvard recruit Brian Hart.

During the second intermission, Gagnon gave his team two goals for the third period. “I told them to stay out of the box and if you win 18 minutes, you win the game.”

Exeter came out flying in the third, peppering Cushing junior goalie Chad Hardy, who finished the game with 38 saves, all period long.

Exeter’s Alex Burk, a PG from Nova Scotia, opened the scoring in the final frame, slipping the puck past Hardy at 4:50. Exeter scored again on a 5-on-3 power play, however Cushing sophomore Garrett Hehir added an insurance goal, converting a rebound with six seconds left to make it a 5-3 final.  

Cushing, undefeated at 4-0-0, will next face Groton on Thursday, at the Lawrence-Groton Tournament.  Exeter (4-3) will look to rebound against Tilton on Wednesday.

Sat. Dec. 11 Highlights

@ Northfield Mt. Hermon 3, Berkshire 2: NMH got three points each from sophomore Brian Loiselle (2g,1a) and Garrett McMullen (1g,2a) to squeak by Berkshire on the road. Berkshire had a 35-27 shot advantage but NHM goalie Dave Donzanti made 33 saves to earn the win.

@ Dexter 5, Hebron 4:
A Pat Curtis goal at 11:34 of the third period gave Dexter a huge home win against previously unbeaten Hebron. Dexter played catch-up all afternoon, as Hebron certainly did not have bus legs, jumping out to 2-0 and 4-2 leads. However, a shorthanded goal by John Magliozzi (1g, 2a) of Dexter turned the tide and the hosts put up three unanswered goals to come away with the win.

@ Portsmouth Abbey 6, Rye CD 2:
Portsmouth Abbey used four powerplay goals to cruise to the 6-2 win. Seniors Morgan Green (2g,1a) and Garrett Behan (2g), and sophomore Joe Giannini (3a) had big days for Portsmouth Abbey. Rye CD goalie Michael Mossman was busy in net, facing 44 shots (38 saves). The win is the second in two days for the Abbey following Wednesday’s 11-1 setback against Dexter.

Groton 3 @ Rivers 1:
Groton went on the road and beat Rivers by a score of 3-1. Jack Wilkinson (1g,1a) scored with just over three minutes remaining in the second to break a 1-1 deadlock. The visitors held a decisive 43-23 advantage in shots, but Rivers goalie Ryan Colena made it a contest, turning aside 40 Groton shots. Sophomore Jordan Piccolino picked up the win in net for Groton.

@ Avon 6, Trinity-Pawling 0:
Avon continued its hot start by crushing visiting Trinity-Pawling. Shots were 40-22 in favor of the home side. Senior forwards Mark Naclerio (2g,1a) and Greg Gozzo (2g) tallied two goals apiece for the Beavers. Ben Freiberg posted the shutout, stopping all 22 shots he faced.

Cushing 5 @ Exeter 3:
Chad Hardy and Robbie Baillargeon were a two-man show for Cushing, as the Penguins stole a 5-3 win at Exeter despite being outshot 41-28 on the afternoon. Baillargeon, a sophomore forward, had Cushing’s first four goals (two even strength, one powerplay, and one shorthanded) then picked up an assist with six seconds left for good measure. Hardy was outstanding in net, making 38 saves on 41 shots to earn the win.

BB&N 4 @ St. Sebastian’s 3:
In perhaps the upset of the day, BB&N traveled to Needham and knocked off St. Sebastian’s. The Arrows had a 36-26 shot advantage, but BB&N’s Drew Michals was strong between the pipes for the visiting Knights, making 33 saves. Seniors Alex Quinn and Bob Pease each had a goal and an assist for BB&N.

@ Gunnery 12, Williston-Northampton 2:
Gunnery burst out to a 6-0 lead in the first period and never looked back, crushing Williston-Northampton 12-2. Gunnery fired 48 shots on goal and got all three Williston goalkeepers into the action. Senior captain Terrence Wallin paced Gunnery with five points (3g,2a).

Governor’s 3 @ Milton 2:
Just 24 hours removed from a 6-3 home loss to Milton, Governor’s traveled to Milton and handed the Mustangs their first loss of the season. Goaltender Rory Burke got the start for Governor’s and was stellar, stopping 43 of 45 shots.

Millbrook 2 @ Brunswick 1:
Junior Captain Josh Freitas’s first goal of the season was a big one, as it gave Millbrook a 2-1 overtime win at Brunswick. Brunswick tied the game with just over three minutes to play on a John Hayden goal, but gave one up the game-winner just 39 seconds into overtime. Brunswick held a 32-20 shot advantage but Millbrook’s Tim Cooney was nearly impenetrable, making 31 saves.

@ Kimball Union 3, Tilton 0:

Tabor 6 @ St. Paul’s 5:
Yet another formerly unbeaten team went down, as Tabor ventured up to St. Paul’s and came away with a 6-5 win. Tabor rebounded nicely from Wednesday’s 8-5 loss to Nobles. Both goalies saw plenty of pucks, as Tabor’s Shane Joyce picked up the win, turning aside 46 of 51 shots; St. Paul’s Derick Roy made 38 saves in a losing effort. Tabor’s Kevin Salvucci had a strong game (2g,1a) up front.

@ Kingswood-Oxford 3, Vermont Academy 1:
Vermont’s struggles continued as they dropped a 3-1 game at K-O. Anthony Giordano lost his shutout bid with 11 minutes to go, but still picked up the win for K-O with 20 saves on 21 shots.

Canterbury 3 @ Loomis-Chaffee 3: PG Will Strabley’s second goal of the night tied up the score for the host Pelicans.

@ Pomfret 4, Westminster 3: Pomfret, led by PG defenseman Brian Hickey (1g, 1a) who scored the GWG at the half way mark of the third, and junior Brian Miller (1g, 2a), stunned visiting Westminster. As for Westminster, senior captain Corey Taber (2g) tallied in the final moments of the game to bring it within one, but Pomfret was able to hold off the Martlet’s rally.


Salisbury Blanks Kent in the Big House
Ann Arbor, Mich. -- Salisbury blanked Kent 3-0 in an exhibition game this morning at 110,000 seat Michigan Stadium.

“It was an unbelievable experience,” said Salisbury coach Andrew Will. “It was amazing. The kids had a blast.”

As for the game, Will said, “It was a little slower than the game earlier in the week (an 8-4 Kent win on Monday). Both teams came out and played hard, but it took the kids a while to settle down and get in the flow. I think they were a little awestruck playing in front of 110,000 empty seats.

After a scoreless first period, junior John Hotchkiss put Salisbury up 1-0 off a nice 3-on-2 rush.

In the third, junior D Marc Biega scored on a quick release from the blue line, through a screen to make it 2-0.

Later in the third, junior Philip Zielonka drove to the net hard and classmate Chad Goldberg knocked home the rebound for the 3-0 final.

Both teams played all three of their goalies. For Salisbury, senior Gabe Antoni, soph Tim Ernst, and senior Alex Pepper combined on the shutout.

Will gave special credit to his ‘young’ line of ’95 soph Jason Kalinowski, ’94 junior John Stevens, and ’93 junior Ondrej Krajnak. “They sustained the most consistent pressure for us,” he said.

We should point out that today’s game was a little more intimate than the prep games at Fenway Park last winter in the sense that the fans were closer to the action. Whereas at Fenway the fans were confined to the stands, far from the action, at today’s game the few hundred fans in attendance were able to sit in small field bleachers near each team’s bench, or stand behind the glass. The main seating area was indeed empty.

Tonight, both teams are heading to the Michigan-Utah basketball game. Tomorrow, they will be among the 110,000 at the Michigan-Michigan State outdoor game (2:30 pm).


Winged Beavers Blitz Rhinos
Avon, Conn. -- What looked to be the game of the day turned out to be significantly less as host Avon Old Farms dismantled Taft, 7-1, here this afternoon.

Avon senior George Welles opened the scoring for Avon at 3:15 of the first and things just continually got worse for Taft.

Avon got points from nine different players while pouring 39 shots on two Taft netminders.

Junior Michael Santaguida was solid between the pipes for the Beavers, stopping 27 shots.

“I thought we played really well,” Avon coach John Gardner said. “We were a little more patient with the puck, had good puck movement, did a nice job on the forecheck, and caused [Taft] to give up some chances.”

Taft junior goalie Jimmy Harrison (17/21) was pulled 6:26 into the second period after Avon pumped in three goals to start the frame.

Taft switched to sophomore Missouri native Ryan Coon, who managed to slow the bleeding somewhat.

Taft senior Aidan Cavallini ruined Santaguida’s shutout midway through the third, putting the Rhinos on the board. Senior Morgan Mullen responded less than two minutes later to give Avon a 7-1 victory.

Avon (3-0) will take on Trinity-Pawling this weekend, while Taft (1-2) is off until facing Gunnery next Wednesday.

A Little Help, Please!
We need coaches from the following NEPSIHA schools to post their schedules: Deerfield, Hoosac, Hotchkiss, Loomis, Portsmouth Abbey, Roxbury Latin, Rye CD, St. Mark’s, and Thayer. It is extremely important that this be done in order for the games to appear in the NEPSIHA composite schedule. Since absolutely everything in the database is interconnected via computer programs, a single missing game can actually make the difference between a team making or not making the postseason. It really, truly affects every team in the league due to the complexities of the mathematical formula used to determine who makes the playoffs, so think of it as a brotherhood. We do a lot of work here, checking and double-checking both electronically and by hand, but we still need each team’s schedule as a starting basis. So please help us out by getting your schedules posted, and please include any games you may have already played. If you are having any problems of a technical nature, please contact us, and we will be glad to help.

Most of the above schools are also missing rosters, thus affected players are unable to receive credit for their goals, assists, saves, etc. 

One other thing about rosters We believe it is extremely important that birthdates are included on rosters. The reason is simple. Many players need a year or two of juniors in order to reach their goal of playing college hockey. If colleges recruiters and junior teams looking through rosters have no idea as to how old a player is, there’s a chance they’ll overlook them. The age of a player is essential information. This is the reality of hockey today. It’s all about opportunity, and we want everyone to have the same opportunity. To that end, we need birthdates listed for all players.

Thank you.

A Great Cause -- and a Game, too
When Taft visits Berkshire tomorrow night (7:00 pm) the two teams will be battling for the Lucille A. D’Arco Cup, a tradition that began three years ago when Berkshire coach Dan Driscoll and Taft coach Dan Murphy decided that the best way to honor Mrs. D’Arco, who died in August 2008 after a two-year battle with breast cancer, was a charity game between the two schools.

The tradition has steadily grown since. The reason that the Taft-Berkshire game is the perfect matchup is two-fold. Lucille D’Arco’s son, Brad D’Arco, is a former Taft and Colgate forward who is currently an assistant at Berkshire. Her husband, Dom D’Arco, is the cofounder and long time director of the Connecticut Yankees, where Ryan Shannon, Max Pacioretty, Cam Atkinson and many others honed their skills.

For tomorrow night's game,  the Berkshire players will wear pink jerseys and students at the game will be wearing pink t-shirts. All proceeds will go to benefit cancer research, and donations will be taken at the game. This is a great thing these two schools are doing. We here at USHR will be making a donation and hope others will take the time to do the same. Cancer takes far too many people from us. Hopefully, a cure will be found in our lives, but the resources needed to reach that goal are vast, and every dollar helps. 

If you would like to make a donation, please send a check to:

Berkshire School
c/o Jane Piatelli
245 North Undermountain Rd.
Sheffield, MA 01257

Please make your check out to the Berkshire School. They will then combine the funds and send one check to Stand Up 2 Cancer. All contributions are tax-deductible.
