The 1st Boys’ Hockey team prepared for playoffs this with another strong road game. It was of primary importance to the boys in red and green as they faced the western division leading Villanova College.
After a chaotic start, and quick double goaltender switch, LCS controlled much of the play, but were unable to find the back of the net. Killing off a 5 on 3, led by the acrobatic goaltending of Antoine Rapp, the team were inspired to push back. Thus, on a bang-bang with outstanding puck movement by Patrick Hannivan to Matthew Lovick to Tristan Walsh, LCS opened the scoring. VC did respond with a tying goal late in the second period, leading to a tense third period.
As the team has demonstrated all year, they are comfortable and confident playing under pressure and held off any VC's chances, and in fact, just missed on their own to win the game late in the third. Final score 1 - 1.
Now, LCS travels to UCC on Wednesday, March 1 for the quarter finals at 4:00 p.m. at the Mara Pad on campus.
