CANTON –New England Pro Am Hockey’s High School/Prep Summer Hockey League played the sixth week of their season on August 6 at the Canton Ice House.
Redwings 7 vs. Sharks 5:
The Redwings (2-5-0) pulled through in the second half to pull out the 7-5 victory above the Sharks (1-5-1) in Week 7.
Trailing 3-2 heading into the game’s second half, the Redwings popped off for five scores in the latter frame, while Milton High’s Ryan Dexter gave up just two to his Sharks foes to finalize the win.
It was a fairly balanced attack for the Redwings with six different goal scorers. Defenseman Thomas Lesser had two in the victory, with one each coming from John Foscaldo, Andrew Shannon, Drew Coady, Ryan Conner and Ross Dexter.
Catholic Memorial’s Aidan Boucher (2G) and Eddie Leahy (1G, 1A) each had a pair of points to lead the Sharks’ effort.
Predators 3 vs. Wild 5:
While the Predators (4-2-1) rallied to make it close, the Wild (3-4-0) held on for a 5-3 victory in Week 7.
The action came in the second half. Trailing 4-1 in the later stages of the second half and Jake Curley off serving a penalty, Xaverian’s Brennan Jewett netted a pair of shorthanded scores – both assisted on by Mount St. Charles product Leo Owens, who had a helper on each of his team’s goals in the contest – to cut the Pred’s deficit down to just one. The Wild, however, got back a little insurance on an unassisted goal by Canton High’s Shane Marshall at 20:52, setting up the 5-3 win.
Aiden French backstopped the victorious effort for the Wild.
Blue Jackets 3 vs. Flames 3:
It was a 3-3 tie in the Week 7 contest between the Blue Jackets (4-2-1) and the Flames (5-1-1).
The league leading Flames took a 2-1 lead into the half and then extended it to 3-1 early in the second on a goal by defenseman Ryan Gottwald. Just past the midpoint of the period, however, the Blue Jackets offense went to work. They drew the game back to even at its 3-3 final on a goal by Braintree’s Jack Wood at 14:27 and power play score from BC High’s Nolan Anderson at 16:28.
