Wednesday, January 22, Noble and Greenough 1, Fenn School 9
Buckle up for another offensive explosion by Fenn’s varsity hockey team. The team has averaged 8.67 goals in each of its three games this season.
Hosting Noble and Greenough on Wednesday, January 22, Fenn got on the board in the first period with a nifty goal by eighth grader Jim Carlin, who took a pass from Jack Doherty and made it count.
Fenn opened the floodgates in the second stanza, scoring four unanswered goals.
Will Belle rushed down the right side on a 2-on-1 with Will Hatten. It was Belle with the saucer pass to Hatten, who one-timed the puck past the Nobles goalie for a 2-0 Fenn lead.
Unrelentingly attacking the Nobles defense, Will Gaynor and Dylan Krayer caused confusion and panic, but it was Justin Graf who slammed home the rebound for Fenn’s third goal.
The count was raised to four-zip when Matt Carolan converted a one-timer on a cross ice pass from Hatten.
Still in the second, Josh Weig picked off an errant Nobles pass and went bar down for his first goal of the season.
Fenn held a commanding 5-0 advantage heading into the third period, but this team was firing on all cylinders offensively and was not about to let up.
On the power play, Will Belle lifted his shot top corner on a slap shot from the top left circle. Hatten and Teddy Stiga grabbed the assists.
Justin Graf picked up his second goal of the game on a pass from Dylan Krayer from behind the net, upping the count to 7-0.
Fenn took it to another level by converting not one, but two, shorthanded situations. Jim Carlin and Jack Doherty attacked on a 2-on-1 from the neutral zone, and it was Carlin slamming home the goal after the Doherty pass.
After killing that first penalty, Fenn picked up another minor, this one an interference call. But why play defense on the penalty kill, when your offense is on fire? Belle intercepted a Nobles pass and broke in on a partial breakaway for Fenn’s ninth goal of the game.
With the game all but over, Aiden LaCamera relinquished a goal that broke his shutout, but this game never was in doubt as Fenn won, 9-1, over Nobles.
