Bishop Hendricken 5, Greenwich 0: Powered by a four-goal second period, Bishop Hendricken registered a 5-0 win over Greenwich in a non-conference game at Dorothy Hamill Skating Rink on Saturday.
Five different players scored for the visitors, who raised their record to 10-1 on the season. With their second straight loss, Greenwich is 2-3-2 on the season. The Cardinals are 0-3-1 in their last four games.
Freshman Brady Berard opened the scoring for Bishop Hendricken, tallying with 4:32 remaining in the first period. In the second period, senior Jack Dean scored off an odd-man rush up the ice, making it 2-0 at the 11:17 mark.
Michael Boscia, a senior, received a long pass up the ice from Matthew Dumond and tallied at the 5:51 mark of the second period, giving the visitors a 3-0 edge. Sophomore Harrison Giuliano knocked the puck past GHS goalie Ben Nash off a round, putting the Cardinals in a 4-0 hole 36 seconds later.
“I thought that we played pretty well, the first period we were good,” GHS coach Chris Rurak said. “For some reason, we don’t seem to get the bounces in front of the net. But it was an improvement from Stamford/Westhill (an 8-5 loss) the puck pursuit was better. For the most part we played well.”
Freshman goalie Charles Zolin made seven third-period saves for the Cardinals.
“We have all the pieces to the puzzle,” Rurak said. “We have the goaltending, personnel and the forwards. Once it all comes together it will be fine, I think we can build off this. We are only six games in and have a lot of time to figure it out.”
Greenwich was paced by senior captains Matt Davey, Sean Pratley and Charlie Graves. Patrick Gribbin got the shutout in goal for Bishop Hendricken. The Cards play Northwest Catholic on Wednesday.
