SOUTHWICK – For nearly 30 minutes, it appeared as if the Southwick High School boys ice hockey team might finally break through in the win column in their inaugural season against a mighty foe.
Southwick played two periods of one-goal hockey, before Belchertown emerged in the final period. The Rams fell 7-2.
“We just got into some problems with some penalties which caused a couple of extra goals to end up happening,” said Southwick coach Chris D’Angelo, whose Rams trailed just 2-1 after one period and 3-2 after the second. “Otherwise, we were right with them for quite a while.”
Paul Whalley and Nate Gendron each scored for Southwick. Rams’ John Lacey and Noah Durfey earned assists.
Belchertown outshot Southwick 44-29.
“This was a big improvement compared to the first time we played them,” coach D’Angelo said. “They’re doing much better.”
