In Chazy, NY at Scott’s arena, the Marauders dominated the play and outshot their Beekmantown opponent. Lots of time spent in our offensive zone. Good Marauder play set-ups and pass connections contributed to the tally. Lines worked together to accomplish the win, which started out strong with a score of 2-0 after 1 period, and 5-1 after two periods. All lines contributing to the 6-1 score. Our defense cleared a lot of net-front pucks, and players moved the puck well and often into our offensive zone. Well done, Marauders!
Next game is Saturday, January 21. Home game vs. Manchester Central. Special Olympics at the Dartmouth Skiway is in the morning.
Yesterday, a road win against ConVal. Tomorrow, Marauders have a bus call at 8:45 AM, headed out of town at 9 AM for a 1 PM game vs. Beekmantown. Again Marauders leave Hanover with notebooks and hockey bags, as there are 4 more days of end semester exams. The game will require some Marauder line play coordination and smarts, and a good night sleep. You’ve got this, Marauders!
A Marauder fan sent along this highlight video clip of the last match-up with our out of state rival. Love our captain’s comments!
Good luck, Marauders! Make this one yours!
Marauders 5-0 NHIAA, Beekmantown 8-4
The game will be played at:
Scott’s Memorial Arena
52 Macadam Road
Marauder notebooks and hockey bags hit the road to Southwestern NH and Northeastern NY over the next couple days.

Saturday’s game is at 3 PM vs. ConVal.

Just over a month into the season, it is good to remember HHS ice hockey core values. Hard work in practice, every time. Compete. Commitment on and off the ice. Academics are a priority! Community volunteerism. This is a special team with a long history of excellence on many levels. At the end of the season- better players, but importantly, also, better people. This is the tradition.
MAROON CRUSH…Exams and Games!
Marauders played Berlin-Gorham in a late afternoon home game that was well attended by fans. The first two Marauder strikes were put in within the first few minutes of the game. It was 3-0 after 1, 4-1 after two, and 4-1 after 3. Many Marauder shots were taken and most of the action was in our offensive zone.
Next game is away: Saturday, January 14 at ConVal, 3 PM.
Sylvie Alexander, HHS senior and forward, received a special heartfelt thanks this afternoon at the 7th Annual Sled Hockey Clinic for Disabled Veterans. Sylvie was honored for the generous gift of joyful spirit, time, and energy she has given volunteering for the Ice Vets. Well done, Sylvie!
The upcoming week:
Tuesday a rescheduled home game at 4:30 vs. Berlin. The only day next week my weather app shows a snowflake is Tuesday. Stay tuned.
There are a series of early morning practices. End of 1st semester exams start Friday and continue through next week. Away game at Conval next Saturday at 3.
The updated game schedule was posted on the NHIAA website and currently reads as follows:
Home game win! Beekmantown pulled the goalie in the last 48 seconds to try and even the score and Hanover held on for the win!
Improved passing, neutral zone battles fought and won, and great goalie work tipped the game in our favor tonight. All three lines worked to win this one.
Hanover 3, Beekmantown 2.
This back and forth series with our talented NY opponent will continue with another game, next time at their place, in less than two weeks.
NEXT GAME: A make up game. At home vs. Berlin-Gorham on Tuesday, 1/10 at 4:30 PM.
