Boys Ice Hockey—After Monday’s explosive, seven-goal victory over the Redhawks (3-8), the Warrior-Knights cooled off. They capped off the week by suffering their fourth loss on the year after falling by a goal, 2-1, at home in their first overtime contest of the season. Following a scoreless first period, Michael DiPietro assisted Miles Aronow with the game’s first goal late in the second. The Eagles knotted the score with a goal off a deflection early in the third, eventually sending the contest into overtime. In a back-and-forth extra period, the Eagles worked their offense into Hall-Southington’s zone and clinched the win by beating the goalie off a one-timer just outside the crease. Zach Monti saved 19 of the co-op team’s 21 shots on goal. Hall-Southington took 26 shots on goal and committed seven of the 11 penalties in one of the chippier games the team has had this season, including a pair of major penalties. The Warrior-Knights will be back on the ice next week when they travel to the Newington Arena on Wednesday, Jan. 24 to take on divisional WMRP (5-4) and then head to the Bolton Ice Palace on Saturday, Jan. 27 for a divisional road game against BCR (1-8). Hall-Southington is currently 5-4.
