Junior Team Sweeps Prep Foes at Berkshire

As Thanksgiving dinner was settling in the bellies of most Northwood students, the Junior team had to shift their focus back to hockey. The boys had a pair of games at Berkshire School on Monday, November 27th. The Huskies would face off against two tough prep schools, Gunnery and the host team, Berkshire. With a week off, the boys hoped to get back into things quick, and they did just that.

JRT2The game vs Gunnery started off fast, both teams getting solid chances, but goaltenders for both teams were on their game. With a bounce in front, Gunnery put the first one on the board. It wasn’t long after until Patrick Callahan (Forward, 2018) was able to tie it up, scoring on a pass in front from Sam DiBitetto (Forward, 2018). Northwood quickly added more. Sean Bunting (Forward, 2018), Santeri Hartikainen (Forward, 2018) and Elias Fleishman (Forward, 2020) all added goals for the Huskies, and the group went on to win the 4-3. Cody Monds (Forward, 2020), was happy with the team’s performance. “It was good for us to get our feet wet and win the first game,” he said. “We played well and hope to continue to get better as team.”

It was a short break for the Huskies as the next opponent was the home team Berkshire. The team came out and took control early. Goals came from Monds and Hartikainen. Berkshire was able to sneak a goal in, but it wouldn’t be enough. The boys won 2-1 and finished the weekend 2-0. Hartikainen felt good about the team’s play. “Overall, it was a good weekend for us. We got back in the groove, and with a weekend off, we look forward to practice and preparing for a couple big games in Rochester.”

With two solid team wins, the boys look forward to two big weekends. They will head to Rochester to battle the Northern Cyclones followed by a big holiday tournament at St. Sebastian’s School.
