Acton-Boxborough scored in the first and in the second period to start off their senior night game. Hanover showed their determination and came from behind in the third by getting off a lot of shots, and putting in 2 to even the score. Each HHS goal energized the team, spurring them on to better play. The last 5 minutes of the game were played with intensity, line mates fervently looking to connect with one another to make it happen. Hanover had the edge in shots on goal, but couldn’t produce the game winner. Tie game, 2-2.

The Marauder’s next game: Saturday, February 13- at Acton-Boxborough, MA
There was a big fan base–nearly packed house– with a cool light show to introduce the Berlin starting line-up. No candidates stopping by Notre Dame Arena.
Hanover got off to a slow start as Berlin celebrated the first tally. After the first period the teams made their way to the locker room, 1-1.
Throughout the game, the Berlin goalie made scoring a challenge, capturing or deflecting 44 Hanover attempts. Hanover went ahead 3-1 after 2, and 5-1 at the end of 3. Hanover rolled its three relentless and skilled lines throughout the contest to wear down the short bench of a skilled Berlin opponent.
Well done, Marauders!
The weather is warming, the ice on the pond sadly melting, and the presidential candidates are stomping and stumping around the state in a fury for votes next Tuesday. Maybe some will wind up in Berlin on Saturday?
For the Marauders, none who can vote this Tuesday but 5 seniors who will vote in November 2016, it is an important hockey road trip!
Saturday afternoon at 4 PM the Marauders play in Berlin, NH at Notre Dame Arena. Any candidates in the area would be treated to a really good crowd and girls hockey game. All HHS girls look forward to this road trip north to match up against Berlin, the only undefeated team remaining in NHIAA.
Senior Captain Matti Hartman tallied her 200th point tonight in the win vs. Exeter! Bravo, Matti! This point trail has been so exciting to watch!
The game tonight was between 2 of the three remaining undefeated teams in NH. 6-0 after the 1st period left little doubt that Hanover had shaken off the loss to Austin Prep.
The game ended on a 14-3 score. Congrats Marauders, and big congratulations to number 7, Matti Hartman!
Next game: Saturday at 4pm, Away. Opponent: Berlin High
Today’s rescheduled game is at 5:30 at Phillips Exeter Academy Rink, not the Rinks at Exeter.
Opponent: undefeated (9-0-0) Exeter High.
