Friday night battle on the ice – AB Wood @ Lansdale Catholic on Nov. 3rd, 2017

The Wood Vikings Ice Hockey team was ready for a tough battle against the Lansdale Catholic (LC) Crusaders at the Hatfield Green Ice Rink, the coldest place in town. Freshman Andrew Boyle started the regular season off with a nice goal assisted by Justin Carrelli and Ben Doran.  Then Jimmy Casper scored to make it 2-0.  The Crusaders fought right back with a goal by Nick Sexton 40 seconds later to make it 2-1 Wood at the end of the first period.

The second period was evenly matched with defenseman Sean Boehm working hard to keep the Crusader’s offense in check.   Marissa DeNucci and Assistant Captain Nick Romano also played well on defense to help limit the shots on net.  Robert Schimony scored the only goal of the second period and scored again early in the third period to make is 3-2 LC with 12:35 left in the game.

Assistant Captain Tommy Hill answered by scoring a goal assisted by Ben Doran, who was setting the table for his teammates the whole game. Wood’s holy goalie David Casper was using his size and glove to stop pucks until Nick Sexton beat him by scoring again for LC with just under 6 minutes left in the game. A few minutes later David’s younger brother Jimmy Casper shot low far post and scored with a nice assist by Brayden Gyza to tie the game at 4-4 with 3:46 left to play.

Freshman Justin Carrelli saved his best for last when he scored the game winning goal with only 19 seconds left in the game, assisted by Ben Doran. What a finish!

Next week the Vikings play a talented Roman Catholic team on Friday, November 10th, 7:40pm at Northeast Skate Zone.

AHA Showcase Game Summary

The mighty Wood Vikings battled a scrappy Tennent Panthers team on Friday, October 13th in the second game of the AHA (Athletes Helping Athletes) Hockey Showcase at Revolution Ice Gardens. Wood applied a lot pressure early in the game. Both lines of defense consisting of Ryan Kinney, Nick Romano, Sean Boehm, and Marisa Denucci were doing a good job keeping the puck in the zone. Then Bobby Marcus from Tennent had a quick breakaway and scored with 4:57 left in the first period.

Tennent’s goalie Eric Lineman was stopping everything during the game, over 40 shots, until Wood’s forward Justin Carrelli scored from a beautiful across the crease pass by Center Ben Doran with 6:14 left in the third period.  A minute later Justin scored again on a breakaway with assists by Ben Doran and Sean Boehm.

The game ended 2-1 with Wood pulling out the victory and ending a four year losing streak against the Tennent Panthers. This was a good preview for the big rival game between the two teams on November 22nd, 7:00 at BCI.

Be sure to come out and support the Wood Hockey team this Wednesday, October 18 at 8:40pm against Council Rock North at the Revolution Ice Gardens. Your donations to help the special needs athletes are greatly appreciated
