In Family Weekend action at the Lake Placid Olympic Center, Northwood’s Junior hockey team faced off against Stanstead College in a two-game series.

An optional study hall Thursday evening brought out a large crowd of students to support the team in their first game. Getting off to a good start, Northwood would take advantage of their first power play of the weekend with a goal by Ray Fust (2021, Forward). Neither team would score for the rest of the period making the score 1-0 after one. That would be the score until about halfway through the second when Standstead scored a goal of their own to tie the game at one. Both teams would get many scoring opportunities in the final minutes of regulation time, but neither of them could score for the rest of the game or overtime, sending the game to a shootout. As the shootout went on, Northwood could not find the back of the net, and Stanstead took the first game of the weekend, with a final score of 2-1.

The next day, the Huskies were eager to settle the score with Stanstead. The first period was scoreless as the first lead of the game was up for grabs going into the second. Nate Boak (Defensemen, 2020) put Northwood on the board first with a shot from the blue line. That would be the only goal for the rest of the game until Daniel Colabufo (Forward, 2020) put the game away with a one-timer from the slot. With a two-goal lead, just minutes before the game was over, Northwood would shut out Stanstead to take home a win and go 1-1 on the weekend.
