HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Alumnae Game Saturday
The annual alumnae game was held Saturday, Dec. 26th @ 6:30 PM at Campion. Some high-powered alums were in town and re-took their home ice in what is always a competitive and fun reunion event.
With a “touch of grey”, maybe, but the alumnae extricated themselves from a four goal deficit, and having held a one goal lead only once in the contest, managed to catch the varsity at 6-6 with less than a half minute left in regulation time….and then went on to take the game (7-6) in sudden death overtime. The game was fast and very competitive, high-scoring and fun to watch. Both goaltenders made some great saves. The elder Marauders provided the current varsity team with fifty minutes of some of the best speed, passing and tight checking that they’ve seen this year.
Hanover ends the year at 1-1 in-state, beginning 2010 play away against undefeated Bishop Guertin (2-0) on January 2nd. The rest of the division will resume their NHIAA schedules next weekend as well. Lebanon begins the new year also yet to be defeated at 2-0, while Oyster River and STD trail with 2-1 records. Concord is 1-1 and Berlin, Exeter and Souhegan are all 0-2. (See Head-to-Head Matrix on RESULTS page for details.)
