Players celebrate a goal in recent action in Lake Placid.

Following a solid weekend against a tough Gunnery team, the boys were looking to continue their good team play in Toronto at St. Andrews College against three top teams, Culver Academy, Nichols School and Shattuck St. Mary’s.

In the first game of the weekend the Huskies faced Culver Academy, one of the best teams in the nation. The game saw chances back and forth, but Culver was able to strike first and ultimately prevailed with a 3-0 victory, including an empty net. Although the boys did not get the outcome they wanted, they were still positive results. Sophomore forward Tommy Bannister had some good things to say. “We didn’t win, which is always tough to swallow, but we played a very good game. We had our chances, we just couldn’t finish.”

Following the tough loss, the group looked to get back on their winning ways against a talented Nichols team. The Huskies were able to get on the board first with a goal on the power-play by Cole Leal (Defense, 2019). Nichols was able to battle back and get on the board, but the Huskies came out on top with a 5-4 win. Goal-scorers included Sam DiBitetto (Forward, 2018), Patrick Callahan (Forward, 2018), Will Arquiett (Forward, 2019), and Leal, who added a second. Sean Bunting (Forward, 2019) reflected on the win. “Overall, it was a good game. We came out strong in the first, lost our step a little in the second, but were able to come out on top in the third.”

For the final game of the weekend, the Huskies faced a very strong Shattuck St. Mary’s team, who defeated Northwood 8-4 earlier in the year. The boys were hungry to get their revenge and send Shattuck home 0-3 on the weekend. With a goal from Cody Monds (Forward, 2019) mid-way in the first, the boys never looked back. Monds added a second one, along with two snipes on the power play from Santeri Hartikainen (Forward, 2018).

With huge 4-0 victory over Shattuck, the team is looking forward to the Northwood Invitational. “It was a huge win for us,” said Patrick Callaham (Forward, 2018). “We played one our best games of the year. We are now looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd at the Northwood Invitational.”
