WESTFIELD – A flock of birds knocked out the power to one team in a local ice rink Wednesday.
The Minnechaug Falcons scored one goal in each of the first two periods, tacked on two more for insurance in the final period, and clamped down on Westfield’s offense to snare a 4-1 win over the Whip City in a boys’ ice hockey game Wednesday at Amelia Park Ice Arena.
Tyler DeCarolis recorded a hat trick, and Joshua DeCarolis had one goal and one assist for the Falcons.
Max Maggipinto scored Westfield’s lone goal.
The Bombers, who fell to 2-4, will look to get back on track Saturday against Wachusett at Amelia Park Ice Arena at 6 p.m.

Drew Collins scored a team-high 11 points to lead St. Mary at Westfield Middle School South. Saints’ Jake Butler and Nick Illnicky finished with six and five apiece.
“Again it was another good effort,” St. Mary coach Joe Molta said. “We need to get better in the third quarter, but we played a pretty good second half even tough they went to their bench a little bit.”
