CANTON –New England Pro Am Hockey’s High School/Prep Summer Hockey League played the sixth week of their season on July 30 at the Canton Ice House.
Sharks 3 vs. Wild 8:
Still hoping to turn their season around, the Wild (2-4-0) went to work on the Sharks (1-5-0) in Week 6, posting an 8-3 victory.
A 5-0 blanking in the first half pretty much set the tone for the game. The Sharks did rally to play the Wild to a 3-3 tie in the game’s second half, but the damage to pace the Wild’s victory was already done.
Canton High’s Tim Kelleher had the biggest night of the week, credited with scoring five of the Wild’s eight goals. James O’Keeffe, Benjamin Quinn and Christopher Turano were credited with the remaining Wild goals, while Aiden French was credited with the win in net.
Blue Jackets 4 vs. Predators 5:
The Predators (4-1-1) survived a late scare from the Blue Jackets (3-3-0) to hold on to a 5-4 victory in Week 6.
Things were looking good for the Preds at the halftime break, leading the contest 3-1. The Blue Jackets, however, went on to rally to first tie the game 3-3 and then again 4-4 on a goal by Matt Hemmert at 21:06. Less than a minute later, the Predators were back in front on Brennan Jewett’s second of the game and they were able to cling to that one-goal lead through the game’s duration.
Jewett’s two goals tied with the two from the Blue Jackets Nolan Anderson to lead the game in scoring.
Redwings 1 vs. Flames 9:
The Flames (6-0-0) domination of the summer season continued in Week 6. Their unlucky opponent, the Redwings (1-5-0), were dismantled in the 9-1 Flames victory.
It was a tough go from the start for the Redwings, who were down 2-0 before the game was even three minutes old and 4-1 at the game’s half. Things did not get any better in the second as the Flames posted another five scores, while netminder Connor Owen kept his foe’s off the board to finalize the 9-1 victory.
Weymouth High’s William O’Brien had the biggest night of the week, credited with scoring five of the Flame’s nine goals. Oliver Ames teammates Ryan Gottwald and Hunter Costello recorded three-point nights for the Flames, each with a goal and an assist.
