This afternoon, New Hampton looked to regroup from a hard-fought loss against Brunswick yesterday. Things will not be easy today for the Huskies as they take on a preseason top-ranked opponent in Gunnery. The game started off well, two strong teams flying up and down the ice playing quality hockey. Seven minutes into the period, Gunnery scored the first goal of the game to take the lead on New Hampton. The Huskies were not phased and their continued hard work created a power play, a minute after Gunnery scored. Midway into the power play, Jake Dunlap made a great pass to set up Lukas Uhler’s game tying goal. The rest of the period saw back and forth action, but the period ended with New Hampton and Gunnery tied at one. In the second period, New Hampton came out flat and Gunnery capitalized scoring thirty seconds into the period. Gunnery seized the moment through their early goal, controlling the rest of the period and scoring three more times. After two periods, New Hampton trailed Gunnery 5-1. The Huskies needed a good start to the third period in order to try and get back in the game. However, a Gunnery goal less than a minute into the period, crushed any hope of a New Hampton comeback. Alex Grace did score a nice goal five minutes into the period, but that was all the offense New Hampton could manage, losing 6-2. Despite a disappointing game for the Huskies, the one bright spot was Eli Curry’s play in the third period. Stepping in after Gunnery’s sixth goal, Curry stopped all seventeen shots that came his way. The Huskies will take on Lakes Region rival Tilton on Wednesday, December 6th, as they look to get back on the winning track and gain critical points Lakes Region points.
