The Varsity Boys’ hockey team has been off to a good start this season. On September 10-11, the team had home games against CP Dynamo and won both. It was a great way to start the season and instill confidence in the boys. The squad won the first game because of a last-second tying goal by Jackson Barbieri ‘24. They then went on to win in overtime and shared a great experience as a team for their first game. The second game was similar as they pulled out the victory in overtime for the second game in a row.

On the 23rd and 24th of September, the boys traveled to SLU and played Nichols School on both days. They won on Friday, 4-3, and won again on Saturday, 4-2, with an outstanding game from young goaltender Cash “Money” Lawrence ‘25.

The following weekend, September 30 – October 2, they traveled to South Kent School and battled South Kent on Friday, PAL Islanders on Saturday, and Palmyra on Sunday. They had a tough loss Friday at 2-8 against the selects U16 team. They had a tough fight against PAL Islanders and lost in OT 6-7. The Huskies finally pulled it together for the last game and beat Palmyra 3-2 in overtime with a great OT goal from Landon Cole ‘23. Good job to Northwood’s Prep team for winning that tournament.

On October 6-7, the Varsity squad faced Stanstead in two games. They played hard on Thursday’s first game but couldn’t put the puck in the net. Stanstead won 0-2. On Friday, the boys came back even harder. In the first 6 minutes of the game, they buried four goals on the opposing netminder. Before the end of the game, they netted four more to secure an 8-0 win. Cam Abel ‘23 had a hat trick, and Drew Donatello ‘24 had a shutout to leave the team 1-1 on the weekend.

The following weekend saw the team battle South Kent Selects again. They came out slow in the first game but kept the score close throughout, eventually losing 6-3 with an open net goal. The boys showed up the next day and dominated from the beginning and won 4-2 with a great game from all the boys.

The team is still working out the kinks, but the boys look great this year. They continue to get better and better. #RollHuskies
