VARSITY HOCKEY

Friday, February 15, Rivers School 2, Fenn School 6

Fenn came out firing on all cylinders on Friday, February 15, as the blue-and-gold hosted Rivers School. Four goals in the first six minutes of the opening period spelled the difference in the game.

Andrew Pesce got Fenn on the board with a quick wrist shot off of a John Kielar feed. Pesce beat the Rivers’ goalie on the glove side, 1-0.

Fenn went up 2-0 when Luke Swaim, playing defense, grabbed the puck in the Fenn defensive zone and took off on a one-man rush through five Rivers players. He completed the solo rush by decking the goalie as he was knocked over by a Rivers player and crashed into the boards, while the puck landed in the cage.

Conor MacLean continued to stockpile goals this season, as he put a backhander by the goalie for his 25th of the season. Kevin Bertocci and Andy Barton picked up assists on Fenn’s third goal.

Still in the first, Pesce registered his second of the night after a nifty pass from Liam Teto. Fenn stood at 4-zip.

Rivers finally broke the blank and scored a nice goal on an individual effort with 29 seconds remaining in the first period.

Onto the second stanza, when C.J. Bailey took over between the pipes for Fenn starter Andy Heinze.

Energized by the goal at the end of the first, Rivers scored again to make it a 4-2 game.

Swaim responded with a Bobby Orr-like rush from behind his own goal, dashing through five Rivers players, who were standing as still as traffic cones. With a silky smooth forehand to backhand move, Swaim lifted the puck high over the goalie’s glove hand for a 5-2 advantage.

The third period featured back-and-forth play for the entire period, and C.J. Bailey made some quality saves against a handful of Rivers shots.

Kevin Bertocci "put on the ritz" with a great rush from the neutral zone around the left of the defenseman, sliding the puck short side past the goalie as the buzzer sounded. Fenn won the game, 6-2, extending its undefeated streak to 11-0-1.

 

Wednesday, February 20, Rectory School 1, Fenn School 3

Hosting Rectory School on Wednesday, February 20, Fenn stretched the unbeaten streak to thirteen games.

Bobby Brady won the draw on the opening face-off and pushed it back to defenseman Ben Cook, who carried the puck up the middle, through the Rectory players, and around the left side of the defense. Cook switched to his forehand and blasted a wrist shot past the Rectory goalie for Fenn's first goal. The goal came just fourteen seconds into the game.

“One of the fastest goals scored in my time coaching Fenn hockey,” said coach Jeff LaPlante.

Later in the period, Andy Heinze stopped a shot with his blocker, but the rebound ended up dropping behind him and a Rectory forward was there to tuck it home to tie the game, 1-1.

In the second period, Fenn’s special teams unit took advantage of two Rectory penalties.

Andy Barton and Andy Pesce showed great puck control along with pinpoint passing and eventually zipped the puck across the ice to Conor MacLean, who was wide open for a sweet one-timer.

Fenn's second power play unit came up with the next goal. Gabriel Aberbach kept the puck in the offensive zone and passed cross-ice to defenseman Liam Mulcahy, who rifled the puck to Andrew Pesce for a one-timer by the Rectory goalie.

Fenn killed off a Rectory power play to maintain the 3-1 lead at the end of two periods.

In the third, Fenn had the man advantage again after a Rectory player was called for a double minor charging for a vicious hit on Marcos Braceros. Yet Fenn could not convert the three-minute power play, and the score remained 3-1 for the final.

Andy Heinze stopped 26 shots in the game.

Fenn puts its undefeated season on the line at 12-0-1 in the season finale on Friday, February 22 at Dexter Southfield School in Brookline. The last time Fenn and Dexter faced off was on January 9 at Valley Sports, and Fenn skated away with a 5-2 victory.

JUNIOR VARSITY HOCKEY

Wednesday, February 20, Fenn School 0, Pike School 5

Fenn’s JV hockey team traveled to Valley Forum rink in Lawrence on Wednesday, February 20 to take on the Pike School. According to coach Jason Rude, Pike is a very skilled and well-coached team and invariably one of Fenn’s most challenging opponents.

Fenn surrendered two goals to Pike in the game’s opening three minutes and allowed two more goals in the second period. Pike dominated play, but goalie C.J. Bailey kept Fenn in the game.

In spite of a well-played third period, which produced several scoring chances for Fenn, the blue-and-gold could not break the shutout. Fenn gave up one more goal and fell to defeat, 5-0.

Fenn carries a 1-3-1 record into the season finale against Rectory School on Thursday, February 21.
