Huskies Sweep Weekend With Win Against Brewster

New Hampton looks to stay on the winning track as they take on Brewster Academy, at home, this afternoon. The Huskies knew they would have to play a strong game to defeat a Brewster team that was looking to seek revenge, from the 8-2 loss, New Hampton handed them a week ago. The Huskies got off to a quick start against Brewster, Lukas Uhler scored a minute and a half into the game. Uhler was able to score, when Steven Ardagna’s shot missed the net and bounced off the glass right to Uhler at the side of the net, for an easy tap in goal. Five minutes later, Lynden Breen added to New Hampton’s lead, scoring a back door tap in goal, set up by Joe Dunlap and Bradley Shaw. For the next seven minutes or so, the Huskies continued to dominate the play, but the strong play of Brewster’s goaltender kept New Hampton from adding to their lead. Then, with under four minutes to play in the period, the passing of Lynden Breen and Bradley Shaw set up Joe Dunlap for a goal to give the Huskies a 3-0 lead. Heading into the second period, up three, New Hampton looked to continue playing smart, simple hockey to stay in control of the game. Two and a half minutes into the second period, the smart positional play of Lukas Uhler caused a turnover just outside the offensive zone blue line. After creating the turnover, Uhler made a nice behind the back pass to Thomas Albert, setting up a two-on-one with Michael Kane. On the two-on-one, Albert was able to get the defenseman to bite on a move and then slide the puck over to Kane, who quickly fired a shot, low blocker side past the Brewster goaltender. Up by four, New Hampton continued to play smart hockey the rest of the period, limiting Brewster’s offensive opportunities. On the one quality opportunity Brewster was able to create, Eli Curry was there to make a nice glove save and keep Brewster off the scoreboard. The second period ended with the Huskies remaining in the lead, 4-0. The third period started in similar fashion to the first and second, Lukas Uhler scored just over a minute in, to increase New Hampton’s lead to five. Thomas Albert and Michael Kane earned assists on Uhler’s goal. Three minutes later, Brewster was able to sneak one into the back of the net, but in the end, it was not enough and New Hampton defeated Brewster 5-1. Eli Curry played solid in net for the win, stopping 16 of the 17 shots, he faced. After earning a weekend sweep, the Huskies will take a day off before preparing for a home game against, St. Paul’s School, a very strong hockey team, that New Hampton has not played in quite a while.
