Tuesday's Recap

Prep Loses Opener
#1 Fairfield Prep lost its opening game of the Mount St. Charles Holiday Face-Off 3-1 to perennial power Bishop Hendricken (RI).  Junior forward Connor Henry potted the Jesuit's only goal as Connecticut's number one dropped to 3-1-0 on the season.  Bishop Hendricken improved to 5-0-1.  Prep returns to action today against Mass power Springfield Cathedral.  The puck drops at 2 p.m

Something Had To Give
Normally when Notre Dame-Fairfield and New Canaan meet a certain ranking accompanies their name.  Both teams are off to a less than stellar start and are both coming off completely different seasons last year.  New Canaan ran through the competition last year going 25-1 while ND Fairfield had a down year finishing 6-13-1 and not qualifying for the state tournament.  So, something had to give Tuesday at Darien Ice Rink.  Notre Dame-Fairfield carried a 2-1 lead into the third period but a game tying New Canaan goal from Peter Reinhardt and a stunning overtime brotherly connection from Spencer to Tyler Manchuck would allow the Rams to walk off with a dramatic 3-2 victory.  Junior Mike Samuelenas finished with 29 saves for the Lancers but in the end Marty Roos' boys drop to 1-3 on the year, while New Canaan moves back to .500 at 2-2 and gains some much needed confidence.

Bobcats Impress Up North
Senior Joey Bonazelli, junior Chris Jones and sophomore Nolan O'Connor all tallied three points as the #8 South Windsor Bobcats put away the first of their two games against Maine competition Tuesday.  The Bobcats return to action today against Kennebunk (ME) at 2 p.m.
