Division: Squirt 2
A budding “A” line is evolving for the Bombers. The line of Evan Iglesias, Tommy Whalley and Matt McMahon accounted for 7 of the 10 goals scored in Sunday’s game. The line featured a playmaker in Iglesias and Whalley notching a hat trick. The scoring opened at 4:52 left in the first when Garret Bacon scored off some fine passes by Joey DiGennaro and Joey Taupier assisting on the goal. With just 26 seconds left in the first period Joey Cigal deked out the defense and scored on a breakaway to end the first with the Bombers up 2-1.
Scoring came in bunches in the second period.
Whalley scored his first of four goals on a tip-in with only one minute gone in the second. Iglesias notched his first assist. After just missing a one-timer Iglesias scored on a rebound from Whalley. Tim McMahon scored his first of two goals coming off an assist from Whalley from behind the net. At 5:56 in the second, Nonotuck finally got on board with a rebound to make it 5-1 Bombers. Westfield would score two goals less than a minute later, the first when Whalley scored with McMahon assisting. The second goal was scored by Joey DiGennaro with Aidan King assisting putting Westfield ahead 7-1. Nonotuck attempted a furious comeback when they would score three unanswered goals with the last goal coming with 30 seconds left in the second period.
The third period showed the Bombers back to their constant pressure keeping the puck in the attacking zone. The relentless pressure would pay off as Whalley would score his third and fourth goal of the game with Iglesias assisting on one of the goals notching his third assist. The score closed out at 5:51 left in the third with McMahon scoring his second goal of the game with Iglesias getting his fourth assist and Whalley getting his third assist. Excellent passing and a stout defense kept the Knights out of Westfield’s zone. This resulted with the Bombers holding onto a 29-12 shot on goal advantage.

Division: Squirt 3
This past weekend, the Jr. Bomber Squirt 3’s squared off against the top two teams in their division, the Ludlow Wildcats and the Holy Name Stars, who came into the weekend with a combined 15-3-1 record. The Ludlow and Holy Name teams probably thought they were going to have an easy weekend, they didn’t. Westfield got behind the stellar goaltending of Sean Rowbotham and proved that they can compete with the best. Saturday morning at Smead Arena, the Jr. Bombers came out skating hard against Ludlow missing on scoring opportunities from CJ Jarrell, Keely O’Connor, and Casey Scanlon. Ludlow’s speed continued to test the Westfield defense, and even with Rowbotham turning away shots, the Jr. Bombers found themselves in a 2-0 hole after the second period. Steve Shaw changed that 54 seconds into the third period when he slid a shot in from the point to cut the lead to one goal. Try as they might though, Westfield couldn’t find the back of the net again and had to settle for the 2-1 loss.

Division: Squirt 3
On Sunday morning, the Jr. Bombers faced an undefeated Holy Name squad but got an early lead on a CJ Jarrell breakaway at 5:39 of the first period. Holy Name would pick up a goal of their own in the second period where it would remain tied after two. Striking quickly at the outset of the third, Casey Scanlon hit a streaking Brad Digiacomo who broke on the goalie and lifted a wrist shot into the back of the net for a 2-1 lead. Holy Name came back two minutes later with a breakaway goal to tie the game 2-2. Great defensive efforts from Jake Marcoulier and Harrison Klein could not stop Holy Name in the end as the Stars managed one more goal and secured the 3-2 win.

Division: Peewee 1
Some teams just have your number.
That was evident once again Saturday morning as the Jr. Bombers Pee Wee A’s were handily beaten 4-0 by an impressive Holy Name squad. It marked the third consecutive shutout win for the Stars over the Jr. Bombers in this early season play. When Justin Oski was injured early in the first period, an already shorthanded bench got even shorter and the result was Westfield was never being able to sustain their pressure fore-checking game. Holy Name’s Cam Drewnowski scored in the first period on a nifty feed from Katelyn Joyal and Connor Piecuch. Tim Fay (assist) and Robert Joyal scored 11 seconds apart in the second period and Jonathan Tavella completed the scoring in the third. Luke and Matt Bonavita contributed assists, and the shots on goal were 15-15.

Westfield Jr. Bombers 6, WTM 3
December 16th, Amelia Park Ice Arena
Division: Peewee 1
The Jr. Bomber Pee Wee A’s returned to their winning ways with a decisive 6-3 victory over WTM. WTM took and early 1-0 lead on a shot from the point by Tristen Bell. Nik Chepurin, Quinn Powers (assist), and Joe Czarnecki answered with three goals in 30 seconds to take a 3-1 lead at the end of one period which they would not relinquish. Linemates Spencer Cloutier and Joe Czarnecki then took over the game. Cloutier took a nice breakaway pass from Matt Pelletier deking the goalie and scoring midway through the second period, and then followed up with a stuff-in goal on a rebound from Czarnecki’s shot giving the Jr. Bombers a 5-1 lead through two periods. Czarnecki completed Westfield’s scoring with 1:34 remaining in the game on a set up by Cloutier and Ryan Roskey. Westfield outshot WTM 32-9.
