With the season starting the Junior Team looked to get off to a good start when they traveled to Clifton Park, NY to faceoff against CP Dynamo in their first test of the year. Starting the game scoreless through the first period. Northwood finally broke the seal and got their first goal of the year, scored by Ray Fust (Forward, 2021). Keeping CP Dynamo from scoring in either of the first two periods, the team went into the locker room to prepare for the third period. Throughout the third period, Northwood looked solid as they locked down CP Dynamo. Until the eight-minute mark in the third period when a CP Dynamo player scored off of a rebound to tie the game at one. As the last period went on neither team could find the back of the net, leaving the score tied at the end of regulation. Going into overtime, Northwood was ready to bring home their first victory of the year. Unfortunately, CP Dynamo would find the back of the net first and Northwood fell by a final score of 2-1.

After coming off a tough loss the night before, the junior team looked ready to respond on their first home contest of the year. Getting off to a quick start with a one-time goal from Jacob Guevin (Defenseman, 202.) the team looked ready to take control. The score would stay 1-0 through the first period as Northwood controlled the play. Having 3-4 scoring chances early in the second period, Northwood was knocking on the door to expand their lead. But CP Dynamo had their chances as well and scored four in the second period to make the score 4-1 going into the third. Coming out of the locker room to start the third the junior team was ready to take the game to CP Dynamo and close the deficit as much as they could. Throughout the period Northwood was getting their chances, but they couldn’t finish them until Mark Monaco (Forward, 2021) scored midway through the final stanza. Getting that goal gave the team some confidence and hope but there would not be enough time and CP Dynamo scored an empty net to put the game out of reach at a final score of 5-2.
