Tyler Goodreau was able to cut through the defense for a goal, followed by a nice outside shot by Evan Mastroianni.

Today the Westfield Jr. Bombers went stick to stick with FCHA in a well matched up, rollercoaster of a ride game on home ice. Jack Cashman played between the pipes today, saving 40 of the 49 attempts made on Westfield’s goal. The first goal was scored by J.J. Fox, playing defense, unassisted, in the 1st period. The second goal, also in the 1st period, was made by Bryce Alaconis with the assist by Nolan Lafayette. FCHA answered back in short order by tying up the score at the end of the 1st. It was the 2nd period when the Jr. Bombers pulled ahead of FCHA with a goal made by John Lacey, assisted by J.J. Fox. FCHA continued scoring on Westfield, but the Jr. Bombers answered back with a well-orchestrated goal by J.J. Fox assisted by Michael Miller, with just 14.2 seconds left on the clock. In the third period the Jr. Bombers continued to keep up the pressure! Westfield’s defensive line including Sara McMahon, Kailyb Santiago, Spencer Roy, Garrette Ondrick, and Sean Rodgers wrestled down the puck from FCHA and fired it down the ice. The fifth goal was fired into the net by Reid Imbriglio with the assist by Mason Garrity. Westfield’s offensive line, including Case Viamari, Ryan DeFalco, and Ryan Rodgers were a force to be reckoned with as they utilized excellent passing and stick handling skills throughout the last period. The last and final goal of the game would be a hat trick by J.J. Fox, unassisted. All in all, 19 attempts were made on FCHA’s goal tender by Westfield’s offensive line. The game puck today went to Nolan Lafayette. Great job everyone!

Today the Westfield Jr. Bombers went to battle with longtime rivals Holy Name of West Springfield. The Jr. Bombers have fallen short of a win against West Springfield until today, when they “brought it”! With the drop of the puck in the 1st period Jr. Bombers were on fire. With Jack Cashman in net today making 21 saves of just 26 shots fired on him, defense was the word of the day. Westfield was on task, spending the majority of the game in Holy Name’s zone with Sean Rodgers, Mason Garrity and Spencer Roy on the puck. The first goal was by John Lacey with the assist by J.J. Fox just 47 seconds into the game! The second goal was by J.J. Fox with the assist by Case Viamari. In the 2nd period the Jr. Bombers started taking names and shooting pucks with Sara McMahon winning the face offs and Michael Miller’s expert passing strategies to fellow teammates Ryan Rodgers, Ryan DeFalco, Garrette Ondrick and Bryce Alaconis, the puck stayed exactly where it belonged, in Holy Names territory. At the 10:40 mark, the scoring machine John Lacey and J.J. Fox (assist) score again! Then, J.J. Fox with the assist by Michael Miller scores again at the 9:04 mark, wow! The Jr. Bombers continue to keep up the pressure making multiple attempts on goal and keeping the puck in Holy Names zone. Reid Imbriglio then makes a break for it, scores on Holy Name, and with the sweet “clink” of the post, the crowd goes wild! The last goal for the 2nd period would go to J.J. Fox unassisted at the 7:02 mark, great teamwork by everyone in the 2nd. The 3rd period was less dramatic in that Westfield gave up 4 goals to Holy Name but J.J. Fox sealed the deal nonetheless with the final goal of the game unassisted at the 8:37 mark. Everyone came together and got the job done, congratulations Westfield Jr. Bombers!
