New Hampton traveled around Lake Winnipesaukee to take on Brewster Academy at Pop Whalen Arena this afternoon. The Huskies were not ready to play at the drop of the puck and for the first ten minutes, Brewster controlled the game. Lucas Brine stood strong in net for New Hampton, keeping Brewster from taking an early lead. After a slow start the Huskies started to get their legs going in the final eight minutes of the period. New Hampton just missed on a couple quality scoring chances they created at the end of the period. Neither team was able to find the back of the net in the first period, leaving the game tied at zero heading into the second period. New Hampton took a penalty in the opening minute of the second period to put Brewster on the power play. The man advantage was all Brewster needed to open the scoring and take a 1-0 lead over the Huskies. During the rest of the period, New Hampton created a couple of chances, but for the most part, Brewster outworked the Huskies. The period ended with New Hampton still trailing Brewster 1-0. Something must have gone on during the second intermission because the Huskies found a way to get up for the third period and came out flying. Marcus Joughin scored three minutes into the period. Jake Dunlap made a nice play in the neutral zone to beat a couple Brewster players and then slid the puck to Joughin just inside the offensive zone blueline. Joughin received the pass and then made a nice shot, just over the Brewster goaltender’s pad and under his blocker. Joughin’s goal ignited New Hampton and the Huskies gradually started to take control of the game. With a little over six minutes left in the game, Jake Dunlap gave New Hampton the lead. On the power play Adam Shuchart passed the puck to down to Alec Grace on the half wall, Grace threw a cross ice pass to Jake Dunlap at the right point. Dunlap skated across the offensive zone with the puck and then fired the puck far side past the Brewster goaltender that was being screened by Cory Morris. There minutes after Dunlap’s goal, Isaac MacLeod scored to put the Huskies up by two. Marcus Joughin won an offensive zone faceoff right to MacLeod, who one-timed the puck top shelf. MacLeod wasn’t done yet, scoring an empty net goal, with twenty seconds left, to ice the game. Brewster managed to score once more with one second left, but it was not enough, as New Hampton’s strong third period carried them to victory. The Huskies have now had two nice Lakes Region wins in a row and will look to go for three, when they travel south to play the newest member of the Lakes Region, St. Paul’s School, on Wednesday.
