On Saturday night, Northwood traveled to Plattsburgh. Getting off to a good start was Ray Fust ‘21 (Forward), as he scored the first goal of the weekend. With a mere thirty seconds left in the first, Jack Schlifke ‘20 (Forward) scored a goal off a costly turnover from IHC. Heading into the second period with a two-goal lead, Northwood took full control of the game. Fust, Mark Monaco ‘21 (Forward), and Daniel Colabufo ‘20 (Forward) each scored, pushing the score up to 5-0. In the third period, Northwood built on their lead. More goals came from Fust, Colabufo, and Jacob Guevin ‘22 (Defense). Kannon Flageolle ‘21 (Goalie) shut the door for the entire match to record another Northwood shutout. Overall, the Huskies won 10-0. The highlights of the game were Fust’s scoring of four goals and Colabufo’s hat-trick in his first game back from injury.

After a dominating victory the night before, the Junior Team looked to defend home ice, where they would face off against IHC again. Keeping the momentum from the previous night, Fust capitalized on a shot from the slot to give Northwood an early lead. As the period went on, neither of the teams scored. In the second period, coming out with a spark, Guevin scored another goal for Northwood to double the lead. Just moments later, both Cisco Delliquadri ‘20 (Forward) and Guevin added two more goals, giving Northwood a 4-0 lead. Not giving up was IHC, as they shortly found the back of the net to cut into the lead. The momentum that they grabbed didn’t last long as Patrick Doyle ‘20 (Forward) scored with just a minute left in the period. Going into the third, Northwood knew that they needed to keep their game up and not let the Islanders get any chance at victory. Little over half-way through the final period, IHC was able to find the back of the net off a misplay by Northwood. Responding quickly was Colabufo as he scored from the slot, off a feed from Jack Schlifke ‘20, giving Northwood a 6-2 victory, and two wins on the weekend.

Before going off on holiday break, the Junior Team heads to St. Sebastian’s, where they will face off in the annual St. Sebastian’s tournament.
