Result:Win
Score:4 - 1

Event Recap:


Having absorbed a sound beating at the hands of Millbrook's JV on Wednesday, Thirds hockey was looking for redemption as they completed the season's home and home series against the Trinity-Pawling Pride.  Last Saturday, the boys beat TP at their barn, and they were looking to repeat that performance today.  The Pride jumped out to an early lead, beating goalie Nick "Great Wall" Greco, '13 early in the first period.  Despite peppering the TP goalie (who turned out to be five-time Vezina trophy winner Ken Dryden, who, since he lost his seat in Canada's parliament in 2011, has been filling in anonymously with a variety of prep school teams) with shots, it took a while for the Bears to break through.  Eventually, though, the Bears scored four unanswered goals to get the win.  Matt "Springer" Spaniol, '16, opened the scoring for the home team early in the second period, launching a bomb from the left point that left scorch marks on the goalie's jersey as it went by.  Late in the period, recent call-up Ryan "No relation to Rad" Savage, '15, tipped a shot from debonair defenseman James "Donny" Donovan, '15, for his first career goal.   Early in the third period, "Dandy" Danny Ives, '15, the hardest workin' man in show business, stuffed one home at the left post.  Finally, with just over a minute left in the game, de facto captain Eric "Smithers" Smith, '14, after whining about the length of his stick, (and being reminded that it's a poor workman who blames his tools) put the twig to good use and potted a power play backhander to make the final score 4-1.  Kudos to Brooks "Cooler than the other side of the pillow" Kylie, '14, for his selfless shot-blocking, and to the Philly Phenom, Roy Faigenbaum, '14, for shutting out the visitors through the second half of the game.  The boys take their box and one offense on the road to Rumsey this Wednesday to show the young kids a thing or two about old time hockey.
