Starting the weekend off Saturday night, both the Huskies and the Junior Bruins got off to a relatively slow start. Neither team was able to find the back of the net for most of the first period until Mark Monaco (Forward, 2021) put the puck off the crossbar and in the net to give Northwood the 1-0 lead. The score remained the same heading into the final period. Starting off the final period hot was Ray Fust (Forward, 2021), as he scored just a minute into the third to double Northwood’s lead. As the period went on, the Junior Bruins got a goal of their own, but that wasn’t enough as the Junior Team added four more of their own. Goals by Daniel Colabufo (Forward, 2020), Johnny Cielo (Forward, 2021), Zachary Sedlacek (Forward, 2022), and William Rosen (Forward, 2020) pushed the final score to 6-1 in favor of Northwood.

The following day, Northwood hoped to close out the weekend sweep. Felix Trudeau (Forward, 2021) initiated Northwood’s scoring streak, scoring eleven minutes into the period. A minute later, Will Donato (Forward, 2022) score made the score 2-0. Before the period was over the junior bruins, cut the lead in half as they would score a goal of their own and take some of the momentum back. As the second period started, the junior team looked to build on their lead, which is what they did as Donato would score again to make it a two-goal game. Getting another quick strike would be Monaco as he would score off a won faceoff to make the lead three goals. The Bruins would not give up as they would score two more of their own to close out the second period with a score of 4-3 in favor of Northwood. Both of the teams would play in a defensive battle for most of the third period as neither team would score until Donato would score again, giving him a hat trick and Northwood the weekend sweep.

Northwood looks to continue their hot steak by heading to Stanstead College, where they will play a game against Upper Canada College and Kimball Union Academy.
