Friday, February 14, Rectory School 2, Fenn School 9
Fenn’s varsity hockey team got back to the old familiar winning ways on Friday, February 14 as the team hosted Rectory School. Fenn had lost two straight games, yet the two game drought was a setback that looked worse only because of the previous 18-game win streak that spanned two seasons.
Fenn came out strong against Rectory, dominating the game with a strong forecheck and pinpoint passing. The result was four goals in the opening period.
Defenseman Gabriel Aberbach’s shot from the point found the back of the net to put Fenn up, 1-0. Josh Weig picked up the assist.
Ted Stiga, with some nifty puckhandling, found Liam Teto for an easy tap in and a 2-0 lead.
It was then Stiga’s turn to score, after a great pass from Will Hatten. It was Stiga’s 12th goal of the season.
Another Fenn defenseman, seventh grader Jackson Masters, scored his first goal of the game on a blast from the blue line, making it 4-0. Will Gaynor and Jim Carlin had the helpers.
In the second stanza, Fenn continued to dominate. Stiga picked up his second of the night on a nice 2-on-1 tic-tac-toe pass play with Hatten.
Fenn went up 6-zip when Gaynor scored on a great pass from Ben Cook, as Fenn continued to control the play.
Stiga completed the hat-trick, his second in as many games, when he notched a power play goal. Cook again got the assist.
Still in the second, Liam Teto banged home his second goal of the game when always-ready- to-assist Hatten found Teto at the far post. It was 8-0 Fenn as the two teams headed to the locker room.
Early in the final stanza, Fenn allowed Rectory to break the shutout bid, and then Fenn gave up another quick goal on a rebound, as Rectory showed some life, albeit the score stood at 8-2.Josh Weig closed out the scoring with a nice goal on a Fenn man advantage situation, 9-2. Hatten and Jack Doherty were credited with the assists.
Goalie CJ Bailey had 14 saves in the game. Stiga had a four point game with three goals and one assists, while Hatten collected four helpers. It is the second straight game that Hatten had four assists.
Wednesday, February 19, Roxbury Latin School 2, Fenn School 0
Fenn School and Roxbury Latin School skaters were ready to go on Wednesday, February 19 at Valley Sports, but the assigned officials failed to show up to drop the puck. In their absence, a Roxbury Latin coach donned his skates and helmet to call the game solo. Fenn, with just twelve skaters, was up against a big and tough RL team with sixteen players.
Fenn surrendered the first goal of the game on the very first shot of the game. Coach Jeff LaPlante calmed his team and the boys in blue-and-gold battled back and put some pressure on RL, but couldn’t break through on the scoresheet.
In the second period, Fenn came out hard and earned several good scoring chances, but could not capitalize.
CJ Bailey, between the pipes for Fenn, came up with several great saves to keep the home team in the game.
After a scoreless second period, Fenn worked the power play well and put a lot of shots on net, but the RL goaltender was a brick house.
Fenn relinquished one more goal late in the game and fell to defeat, 2-0. Not only was this the lowest scoring game in Fenn’s season, but it marked the first time in over two years that Fenn was shutout.
Fenn varsity takes a 6-3 record into the final three games of the season.

“We’re so incredibly proud of the squad,” Wade said. “Our rookies gave it their all till the end of the game.”
