Wahconah hockey falls to Chicopee Comp; Mount Everett hockey shut out
NORTH ADAMS -- Wahconah hockey coach Don Disbrow said his team was out-hustled during Monday's 5-2 loss to Chicopee Comp.
The score was tied after the first period, but three unanswered goals from Chicopee Comp sunk the Warriors.
Dan Flynn started the scoring for the Warriors two minutes into the game. After two consecutive goals from Comp, Hjalmar Gustafsson tied the score at two for Wahconah late in the first.
After that, it was all Comp. The Colts beat the Warriors to the puck, turning possessions into two goals in the second and one in the third.
"We took a couple of bad penalties and we stopped skating [after the first period]," Disbrow said. "We controlled a lot of the first period. We didn't dominate, but we had our chances. We had some good movement, but they beat us to all the loose pucks. You're not going to win many games if you don't go after loose pucks."
