Offense Back On Track In Win Over Brewster

New Hampton is coming off two good victories in a row against, Dexter and Vermont Academy. Now, the Huskies look to continue their winning streak as they travel around the lake to take on Lakes Region Rival, Brewster Academy. New Hampton came out of the gate a little slow and Brewster took the early lead on a shot Matt Sayles initially stopped, but the rebound hit a Husky defenseman in front and bounced in. Brewster’s goal seemed to wake up New Hampton and three minutes later, Jake Dunlap had a nice solo effort after picking up the puck right in front of the New Hampton bench and skating past two Brewster defensemen, before going in on the Brewster goaltender and scoring. Two and a half minutes later, Parker Shaarschmidt scored his first goal as a Husky, on the power play. After receiving a pass from Joe Dunlap, Shaarschmidt fired a shot from the point that the Brewster goaltender never saw, due to the screen of Zak Lanoue. Four minutes later, Thomas Albert deflected Steven Ardagna’s shot into the back of the net, giving New Hampton a 3-1 lead heading into the first intermission. The Huskies started the second period strong, Thomas Albert set up Michael Kane, a minute and a half into the period, for New Hampton’s fourth goal of the game. A minute and a half later, Joe Dunlap was set up by Lynden Breen to extend the Huskies lead to four. Two minutes later, Michael Kane scored his second of the game, on the power play, assisted by Lynden Breen and Michael Kesselring. After going ahead by five goals, the game got a little sloppy with both teams taking multiple penalties, disrupting the flow to the game. Neither team managed to score the rest of the period, resulting in New Hampton leading 6-1 heading into the third period. Both teams continued to take penalties during the start of the third period, leading to lots of power plays that neither team was able to capitalize on, during the first ten minutes. Just past the ten-minute mark, the Huskies were finally able to take advantage of being on the power play with some nice passing. On the five-on-three power play, Thomas Albert scored off a one-timer in the slot, assisted by Joe Dunlap and Michael Kesselring. Four minutes later, seconds after getting out of the penalty box, Joe Dunlap scored on breakaway that was set up by Michael Kesselring. Brewster was able to score once more before the end of the game, but in the end, New Hampton’s offensive explosion was too much for Brewster, resulting in an 8-2 win for the Huskies. Matt Sayles was great once again in net, stopping 30 of the 32 shots that came his way. New Hampton will look to build upon their strong play, as they take on another Lakes Region Rival, Tilton School, on Wednesday afternoon.
