Junior Team Wins Beantown Winter Classic

u16(January 6-8, 2017) After time off for winter break, the Junior Team headed to Providence College for the Beantown Winter Classic. In game one, the Huskies faced off against Saint Andrews and defeated them for the second time this season. Jack Dugan (Forward, 2017), Kaden Pickering (Forward, 2017), Aleksi Peltonen (Forward, 2017), and Kevin Lombardi (Forward, 2017) scored in the 4-3 victory.

In the second game the Huskies defeated Skipjacks 18U. The Huskies fell behind 3-1, but, behind goaltending from Erik Short (2017) and short handed goals from Kaden Pickering and Wyatt Wilmshurst (Forward, 2017), Northwood skated to a 5-4 victory.

In the final game of pool play the Huskies defeated South Kent Selects Academy 4-2 with goals from Kevin Lombardi, Aleksi Peltonen, Kaden Pickering, and Christian DiCesare (Defense, 2017).

In the championship game Sunday morning, it was a rematch between Selects Academy and Northwood. Early goals from Wyatt Wilmshurst, Simon Morberg (Forward, 2017), and Gustav Arfelt (Forward, 2017) put the Huskies up 3-0. They would not relinquish the lead and Nick Ormon (Defense, 2017) added a late goal on a 5 on 3 for a 4-0 victory. Matt Petizian (2017) recorded the shutout in net.

Head Coach Chadd Cassidy was pleased with his team’s performance. “This was a big weekend for our team,” Cassidy said. “As a coaching staff we were impressed with how sharp our team was after not playing for over 3 weeks. To go through the weekend winning all 4 games says a lot about the determination of our group.”

Next up for the Huskies is Shattuck St. Mary’s in the Northwood Invitational Showcase on 1/13 at 5pm.
