TMHS Wins Two of Three
After dropping its opening game in an eye opening 9-0 loss on the road to Chelmsford on Dec. 11, the Tewksbury High JV boys hockey team rebounded with a 5-1 home win on Saturday Dec. 20 over Methuen and a 3-1 road winat Haverhill.
In the win over Haverhill, Tewksbury took an early lead in the first period when freshman Nick Walsh scored by banging in a rebound off of sophomore Jake Scanlon's shot from the point. Freshman Patrick Hunt also picked up an assist on the play.
In the second period, Tewksbury picked up insurance goals by Jake Scanlon, assisted by freshman Colby Pierce and junior Jonathan Verrill, assisted by sophomore Tim Morris.
Tewksbury has been anchored in their two wins by solid goaltending from freshman Trevor Harris who has turned away all but one shot in each of the last two games.
"After a tough start in our first game at Chelmsford the kids came back strong to pick up two wins and get it back on track," said Redmen coach Shawn Scott. "They're a good group of young kids. They're getting better every day and we're all excited for the rest of the season ahead."
