Boys Hockey Wins Revenge Game Against Bishop Guertin
Hanover 3, Bishop Guertin 1
The Hanover boys took down Bishop Guertin and kept on rolling, winning their eighth game of the season. After a tough loss to Bedford where the Marauders lacked a strong defense, the last week was spent on strengthening the defense. Although BG came in 5-1-1, they beat Bedford and Trinity by three or more goals, each of which the Marauders struggled to beat.
This Saturday’s game was a game of revenge for the Hanover boys varsity, and they have been waiting for this moment since their loss against BG in the NHIAA D1 Quarterfinal last year. Two minutes into the first period, a combination of great defense and crisp passing gave Hanover its first goal by sophomore Cameron Woods. The Marauders’ defense was fighting hard from the get-go, but that did not stop the Cardinals from tying up the game. That goal did not phase senior Harris LaRock at all, finishing with 29 saves out of 30 shots from BG.
The first period came to an end with the score all tied up, leaving the fans on the edge of their seats. Just a few minutes into the second period, senior co-captain David Lehmann found Woods and scored his second goal of the day. Later in the second, Lehmann produced another assist to freshman Matty Gardner to secure the dub.
The third period was an aggressive one that came with a visit to the penalty box due to LaRock, who gave 6’6” Doug Parker a piece of his fist after being fed up by the rough play by BG. Elias Zinman, Lehmann, Hans Williams, and Braxton McNulty were threats throughout the 3-1 win against a strong Bishop Guertin.
LaRock shouts out Peter Warhold (senior) and Rowan Wilson (sophomore) on their hard work guarding Bishop Guertin’s Parker and Peterson, a danger to Hanover for the duration of the game. Payback feels great, but the Marauders have their minds set on their next game versus Exeter.
Please come out this Wednesday (1/24) for a 6:00 home game against Exeter!
