The first game started off in the favor of the Huskies as Andrew Gilbert ‘19 (Defense) scored off an assist from Jerkko Ramo ‘19 (Forward). About a minute later, the Junior Islanders put one on the board, knotting the score at one. Ryan Wilson ‘19 (Goaltender) saved four out of five shots in the first stanza.

Wilson saved all nine shots in a scoreless second period, as play went back and forth with many scoring chances.

In the third, the Huskies had more scoring opportunities. Assisted by Will Arquiett ‘19 (Forward), Reid Leibold ‘20 (Forward) pushed the score to 2-1. Matthew Shanklin ‘19 (Forward)’s score was shortly followed by a successful shot from the Junior Islanders. Assists were from Josh Waters ‘19 (Forward) and Gilbert. The game ended in 3-2.

On Sunday, the Huskies started off strong when Tommy Bannister ‘20 (Forward) scored off an assist from Arquiett. Bannister then netted his second of the game toward the end of the first period, pushing the score to 2-0. Nickolas Kazmouz ’19 saved both shots on net.

The second continued to be in the control of the Huskies as Kazmouz saved all ten shots, and Cody Monds ’19 (Forward), Finlay Ulrick ‘19 (Forward), and Elijah Devereaux ‘20 (Forward) all netted goals, making the score 5-0.

The third period started off for the Junior Islanders as they netted one putting the score at 5-1. Soon afterward, Jared Lambright ‘20 (Defense) pushed the score up to 6-1. However, the Junior Islanders weren’t done battling. They finished the game with another goal making the final score 6-2.

With this weekend’s wins, the Junior Team moves to 4-1-2 on the season. Next weekend, the Huskies travel to Boston to play three games.

Note: a previous version of this article incorrectly listed Ryan Wilson ’19 as the goalie in game two. It was Nickolas Kazmouz ’19.
