Ritter Coombs ‘25 had 4 goals and 3 assists to lead the Northwood Prep hockey team to two wins in a home-and-home series against the CP Dynamo U18 team from Clifton Park the weekend of September 16-17.

In Clifton Park on Saturday, the junior trio of Coombs, Will Schneid and Shane Tronoski combined for 7 goals and 7 assists on the way to a 7 – 1 victory. Goaltender Devin Shakar ’24 recorded his first win as a Husky, making 26 saves.

On Sunday, CP Dynamo came to the Olympic Center for a rematch against the Huskies. The contest was tighter, but the result was the same: a 2 – 0 Northwood win. Schneid and Coombs scored the goals and Sebastian Pribula ’24 backstopped the Huskies to his first Northwood win and shutout.

“We have a really strong team this year” said Head Coach Steve Mallaro. “I am excited for our team to grow and develop I am looking forward to seeing the outcome of this season because I know how strong of a team this is.” Mallaro also noted that he is happy with how well his defense played.

This weekend, the Huskies head to New Hampshire for a three-game series against Governors Academy, Top Gun U18 and FP Wildcats (Kimball Union Academy). Husky fans are excited for the outcome of this following weekend.
