New Hampton traveled to Philips Exeter Academy to take on Brunswick School from Greenwich, CT this afternoon. If previous games against Brunswick are any indication, today is going to make for an exciting matchup. The Huskies were not ready to play at the puck drop and Brunswick put pressure on New Hampton, scoring four minutes into the game to take the early lead. The goal by Brunswick seemed to wake up the Huskies and they responded thirty seconds later to tie the game. Parker Schaarschmidt made a great defensive play in the neutral zone to poke the puck off a Brunswick player. Jake Dunlap picked up the puck just before the red line, flew down the boards and ripped a shot high far side top corner, for his first goal of the season. A little over a minute later, Cory Morris was set up by Marcus Joughin and Isaac MacLeod. Morris ripped a shot short side top corner to give New Hampton the lead. Five minutes later, Alec Grace received a pass from Jack Ring, went in on a two-on-one and ripped a short side to put the Huskies up 3-1. The rest of the period saw back and forth action with both Matt Sayles and the Brunswick goaltender standing tall in their net. The start of the second period was similar to the first, Brunswick came out flying and scored an early power play goal to cut New Hampton’s lead in half. It was like déjà vu, thirty seconds later the Huskies responded to take back their two goal lead. Jake Dunlap slide a nice back door pass on a two-on-one, setting up Alec Grace for his second goal of the game. Two and a half minutes later, New Hampton went up by three goals on a pretty passing play between Jake Dunlap, Alec Grace and Jack Ring, that ended with Jack Ring tapping in an open netter. With less than eight minutes left in the period, Isaac MacLeod scored his third goal of the season, banging home a rebound off Jake Dunlap’s shot, to give the Huskies a four goal lead, heading into the third period. At the start of the third period, New Hampton again gave up an early goal, giving Brunswick all the moment to start the third period. The next nine minutes saw back and forth action with both teams creating some quality scoring chances. Just before the ten minute mark, Brunswick scored their second goal of the period to cut the Huskies lead to two. In the next three minutes, Brunswick scored two more times to comeback from down by four and tie the game. The rest of the period, New Hampton hung on, leaving the game tied, 6-6, after three periods of play. The Huskies have had some tough outcomes in overtime games in the past, but today, New Hampton played solid defense to earn a tie with Brunswick. The Huskies will have a quick turnaround, playing tomorrow afternoon at 12:00pm against another Connecticut team, Kent School.
