Junior Team Comes Up Empty in Berkshire Jamboree

The Junior team cut their Thanksgiving Break short to travel to Berkshire School, where they would face off against prep foes Salisbury and Berkshire.

Their first game was against Salisbury, where they hoped to get off to a quick start Northwood looked to apply early pressure. But a good start was not in the cards for Northwood, as they would let up two goals in the first half of the game. The squad looked to respond in the second period led by Ray Fust (Forward, 2021), who would score the first goal. Moments later, Carson Hall (Forward, 2022) would find the back of the net, coming off the rush, to tie the game at two apiece. Salisbury would respond as they got a goal a minute later to retake the lead. As the second half went on, Northwood did their best to battle back into the game, but it wouldn’t be enough as Salisbury would get one more goal before the game was over to make the final 4-2.

Just a few hours later, Northwood hoped to redeem themselves from their lousy loss earlier in the day as they faced off against host Berkshire. This time the Huskies got off to a good start. Fust would score the first goal of the game and give Northwood the 1-0 lead. Berkshire would then respond with two goals of their own to take the lead. Midway through the second half, Hall. would score to tie the game at two apiece. With just minutes left and the game tied, Northwood looked to take advantage of a late power-play opportunity. Zachary Sedlacek (Forward, 2022) would get a good chance on the power play, but the Berkshire goalie made a big save to keep the game at two apiece. As the final moments went on, Northwood tried to get another goal to break the tie, but they would not be able to, and the game would end in a tie. Leaving Northwood 0-1-1 on the weekend.

The junior team next faces off against the Northern Cyclones in a pair of home games.
