Redmen Top Gorham, 4-2 at Maine Holiday Tournament

Ryan Petti (8) scored his second goal of the season as Tewksbury beat Gorham, 4-2

Tewksbury’s High’s talented first line of Ryan Petti, Colin Quinn and Ryan Sheehan continued its productive ways Saturday afternoon as the TMHS hockey team took a 4-2 victory over Gorham High School at the Yankee Ford Invitational in Portland, Maine.

Petti, a senior center iceman, had a goal and an assist as Tewksbury outshot Gorham by an eye-opening, 53-14 margin. Quinn, a senior winger, scored his team-leading eighth goal of the season and Sheehan, a sophomore, picked up an assist as the Redmen improved their record to 3-1.

“Our first line has stepped up the last couple of games and they’re starting to put points on the board, so that’s a good sign,” said TMHS head coach Derek Doherty. “Playing four lines keeps those guys fresh, so when they come out on the ice they just pepper the other team’s goalie with shots.”

Tewksbury jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead after junior forward Steve Hamel scored his first goal of the season, unassisted, just five minutes into the first period.  Petti scored his second goal of the season on a power play midway through the first period, Ryan Meade assisting, to make it 2-0. Quinn, fresh off a record-setting six goal performance against North Andover last Saturday, scored his eighth goal of the season, assisted by Sheehan and Petti, late in the first period as Tewksbury out shot Gorham 27-4 in the first period.

Gorham stormed back with two goals in the second period to pull to within one at 3-2 going into the third, but Tewksbury’s David Dempsey sealed the win with an unassisted goal late in the third to account for the final 4-2 score. Dempsey’s goal came just after Tewksbury had successfully killed off a 5-on-3 situation.

“David Dempsey had a great game,” Doherty said. “He works hard for us. He’s always beating guys to the puck and gaining possession of the puck for us. He just quietly does his job well.”

Overall, Doherty was pleased with his team’s effort.

“We played pretty well,” Doherty said. “We got a lot of shots, but a lot of them were perimeter shots, and their goalie was pretty good. We got our game plan going in the first period, but we became a European team after that, settling for shots from the perimeter.”

Tewksbury continues its annual Maine trip with a 1:00 p.m. game against Portland High School on Saturday.
