UHL ROUNDUP – 6/15/24 Week 5 (Regular Season)

 

Patriots 6, Huskies 2

League-leading points scorer Max Caliri netted the eventual game-winner late in the second period as the Patriots controlled the majority of the puck possession, firing 35 shots on Huskies goalie Luke Bettencourt (29 saves). Finn McNabb registered a pair of goals for North Middlesex while Caliri and Camble Devine both posted a goal and assist. Charlie Dee and Jack Hugo accounted for both Huskies tallies in the second against Patriots netminder Jack Murphy (27 saves).

 

Tech 10, Phantoms 1

The varsity-level Tech squad used both its size advantage and savvy to overpower the young Phantoms, led by the four-goal, five-point performance by Kyle Bouvier and hat trick from Sal Arena. Phantoms forward Joey Mazzone’s goal with 5:21 remaining ruined the combined shutout bid of Tech goalie tandem Declan Farrell (15 saves) and Ty Stapleton (7 saves).

 

Admirals 11, Team X 2

The Admirals recorded their highest ever goals total in their two seasons of UHL play, powered by a five-goal effort from Brandon Callahan and four more from Bryce Laros, in routing Team X. Both Callahan and Laros posted a total of six points in the contest, which featured a pair of shorthanded tallies from Alvirne-Milford, while Admirals forward Braydon Atwood chipped in with a goal and two assists. Adam Hagerty and Dylan Davis accounted for Team X’s offensive output.

 

 

UHL ROUNDUP – 6/9/24 Week 4 (Regular Season)

 

Ghosts 6, Huskies 1

Six different scorers paced the Ghosts offense led by Bryan Fitzgerald, who also set up two others, as Westford dominated puck possession to cruise to victory. Thanks to the outstanding efforts of Huskies goalie Sam DeChaves (43 saves), the outcome was still in doubt entering the third period before the Ghosts pulled away on goals from Max Banatt, J.J. Funaro and Matt Mulhern. Huskies forward Gavin Asimakopulos spoiled the shutout bid for Westford netminder Cam Hoagland on a breakaway tally with just 6:17 remaining after starting goalie Kieran Humphries only faced one shot during the opening 23 minutes.

 

Phantoms 3, Crusaders 2

Forward James Roberts snapped a 2-2 tie with 10:35 left and alternate goalie Luke Bettencourt made 18 of his 45 stops in the third period to lead the Phantoms to the victory. Joey Mazzone gave the Phantoms a one-goal lead twice in the first two periods, but the Crusaders came back with the equalizer each time off the sticks of Owen Eastman and Rob Flynn, sending the game into the final period deadlocked. Crusaders goalie Cam Columbus turned aside 25 of the 28 shots he faced.

 

Patriots 4, Team X 0

Goalie Jack Murphy needed to make only 13 saves to record his first shutout of the season while Camble Devine recorded a goal and assist as the Patriots silenced Team X. Carrying a 1-0 lead into the first intermission, North Middlesex broke open the game in the second period with three goals, the first from Devine and two more from Max Caliri and Brady Dunbar. Team X alternate goalie Preston Johnstone made 31 saves in the loss.

 

Middies 8, Tech 5

Tech attempted a late rally in the third with a trio of goals, but the Middies’ four-goal first period proved more than enough to power Dracut-Tyngsboro to the high-scoring victory. Drew Duross scored a goal in the second for the Middies and set up three others, while Christos Panagakis netted a pair and assisted on other in the win. Zach Dibona led the Tech offense with two goals, while Jackson Ferreira registered a goal and assist for Nashoba-Greater Lowell in defeat.

 

Lions 9, Admirals 1

A power-play goal from Admirals forward Brandon Garas tied the score a 1-1 midway through the first period, but the Lions proceeded to net the game’s next eight consecutive goals, including four off the stick of Nick LaFreniere, as Chelmsford cruised to the win. Andrew Monahan posted a goal and two assists for Chelmsford, while Evan Kamacek and Memphis Belleville where credited with a pair of assists. Alternate goalie Luke Bettencourt only faced 11 shots to record the win for the Lions.

 

 

UHL ROUNDUP – 6/2/24 Week 3 (Parity)

 

Patriots 3, Ghosts 1

Braden Amidon scored twice while goaltender Jack Murphy allowed only one goal on 18 Ghosts shots as the Patriots capped the parity round with a solid team win. Ryan Nelken accounted for the lone Westford goal while goalies Kieran Humphries (17 saves) and Cam Hoagland (12 saves) were stellar in the Ghosts’ crease. Forward Sean Myers’ unassisted power-play goal with 1:06 remaining in the third provided some insurance for the Patriots.

 

Phantoms 4, Admirals 4 (tie)

Alternate Leo Haridopolos scored twice for the Phantoms and set up another goal while Admirals forward Chris Bozza netted a goal to go with two assists, as the clubs settled for the tie in the back-and-forth contest. Haridopolos gave the Phantoms a 4-3 lead with just under 10 minutes remaining, but it proved short lived as Bryce Laros scored the equalizer for Alvirne-Milford just 42 seconds later. Forward Brody Myers opened the scoring for the Phantoms in the second before setting up a pair in the third, while Ronnie Ricard posted a goal and assist for the Admirals.

 

Tech 7, Huskies 3

Huskies forwards Landon Katz and Alex Gertz scored 22 second apart early in the third period to cut the deficit to one, but Tech would account the game’s final three goals to pull away for the win. Jack Donovan netted his second of the game with 10:17 left to give Tech back its two-goal lead before brothers Cam and Jayden Auger capped the scoring down the stretch, giving Nashoba-Greater Lowell the comfortable victory. Kyle Bouvier also netted a pair of goals for Tech, while goalies Declan Farrell and Ty Stapleton combined to make 22 saves for the win.

 

Team X 4, Crusaders 4 (tie)

Team X forward Matt Sartell scored with 2:44 remaining to knot the score for good after forward Rob Flynn (3 points) had given the Crusaders a 4-3 lead entering the final 15 minutes with is second goal of game late in the second period. Adam Hagerty scored once and assisted on another in the second to initially pull Team X even after the Crusaders built a two-goal advantage following the opening period on goals from Owen Enos, Owen Bernard and Flynn’s first of the day. Second-half goaltender Cooper Kirchner stopped all 11 shots he faced in the third allowing Team X to salvage the draw.

 

 

UHL ROUNDUP – 5/19/24 Week 2 (Parity)

 

Tech 4, Phantoms 2

The Phantoms held a 2-1 lead after the first period thanks to a buzz-beating goal from Landon Fairchild. Tech’s deficit remained that way until early in the third thanks to the netminding of second-half goaltender Declan Farrell, who didn’t allow a goal in relief of starter Ty Stapleton. Tech tied the game on a shorthanded goal from Brody Simmons before Jayden Auger netted his second goal of the day for what ended up being the game-winner with 8:45 remaining. Braeden Sleger added an empty-net goal for Tech to cap the scoring after Phantoms goalie Tyler McGeary turned aside 36 of the 39 shots he faced over the first 43 minutes.

 

Huskies 3, Team X 2

The Huskies built a three-goal advantage after 30 minutes of play thanks to a pair of second-period goals from Jesse Gertz, but Team X refused to surrender in the third. Forwards Dave MacDavis and Ryan Townsend scored just 1:40 apart late in the final period to cut the Huskies’ lead to one with under four minutes to play. But goaltender Sam DeChaves made 13 saves on 15 shots in the third to preserve the win for the Huskies. Starting goalie Luke Bettencourt was far less busy in the Huskies crease, needing to stop just four Team X shots through the opening 23 minutes.

 

Middies 4, Ghosts 4 (tie)

Middies power forward Christos Panagakis scored twice in the final minute of play, including the tying tally with just 0.8 seconds remaining, as Dracut stunned the Ghosts with an extremely late rally to salvage the tie. The Middies held a 2-1 lead entering the third on goals from Chad Vigeant and Drew Duross before Westford netted three straight to take a 4-2 lead with exactly 1:00 left, the last two off the stick of J.J. Funaro. That Ghosts’ offensive surge set up Panagakis’ two-goal heroics with the extra skater on for Dracut both times. Max Banatt scored the first two goals for Westford.

 

Lions 7, Patriots 4

Nick Lupoli’s power-play goal with just over nine minutes remaining extended the Lions’ lead to two, and Tom Tobiassen added his second of the game with under a minute to play to help Chelmsford hold off the Patriots. Braden Amidon netted a pair of goal for the Patriots, while Lions goaltender Will McNeal turned aside 27 shots in the victory.

 

 

UHL ROUNDUP – 5/11/24 Week 1 (Parity)

 

Patriots 10, Middies 3

Patriots forward Brady Lavery opened the 2024 Ultimate Hockey League season with perhaps the best offensive performance for the entire year, scoring five goals and assisting on two others, as North Middlesex cruised past the Middies. Meanwhile, versatile Patriots standout Max Caliri recorded a hat trick of his own coupled with four assists to match Lavery’s seven-point day. Drew Duross   notched goal and assist for the Middies.

 

Admirals 5, Tech 3

Having already set up a pair of first-period goals, Mason Thompkins netted the eventual game-winner for the Admirals with 6:48 remaining in the third period, snapping a 3-3 tie. Alvirne-Milford built a 3-1 lead after the first on the strength of two Brandon Garas goals, but Tech tied the score in the second on tallies from Zach Gagnon and Jayden Auger. Cam Vaillancourt added an empty-netter in the final minute to secure the victory for the Admirals.

 

Huskies 8, Crusaders 5

Not only did shifty forward Leo Haridopolos record a natural hat trick in the second period, he in fact netted three shorthanded tallies overall on his way to an impressive five-goal, six-point performance, as the Huskies overpowered the Crusaders. Alex Gertz added a pair of goals for the Huskies, while Gavin Asimakopulos posted a goal and assist in the victory. Both Owen Eastman and Rob Flynn scored twice and set up another goal for the Crusaders.

 

Team X 3, Phantoms 0

In a showdown of UHL expansion clubs, Team X relied on a 16-save shutout from goaltender Cooper Kirchner as well as a pair of second-period goals from Josh Cruikshank to outpace the Phantoms. Ryan Hoagland set up both of Cruikshank’s tallies, while Phantoms netminder Brian Laforte stood out with an outstanding 26-save effort that included several highlight-reel stops.
