Hockey, Boys: Varsity loses to Salisbury (Flood Marr Tournament)

Event Details

After an exciting first day and some much needed rest, the boys would lace up their skates for an afternoon tilt against Salisbury at Milton Academy on a bigger ice sheet that proved to be a difficult adjustment. From the first puck drop it was very clear that the boys were already looking ahead to Sunday’s game, knowing that they had already secured a spot in the final even with a loss to Salisbury. However, all credit goes to Salisbury as they put together a complete game and outshot DA 38 to 15. If it weren’t for Vigneault ‘17, the game could have ended much worse than 5-0 after two periods. In the first period alone, Vigneault ‘17 faced 16 shots, making the first save every time and on a couple of occasions, even the second and third. In the final stanza, the boys came out and scored three goals in a matter of three minutes, cutting Salisbury’s lead to two. Despite a much better third period, Salisbury would score an empty net goal and the game would end 6-3. Vigneault made 32 saves on the afternoon and if one thing was clear it was that no matter who plays in net, they were going to give us a chance to win on any given day.
