The BV hockey team started their season with a strong 5-1 road win against Groton. The boys played hard from start to finish, controlling the play against their ISL opponent for all 54-minutes. Junior Tom Molson (‘24) opened the scoring on the power play and junior John Tolve (‘24) made some key saves early on to give the Doors a 1-0 lead heading into the first intermission. Senior Will Richards (‘23) scored his first career goal off a beautiful back-door pass from Darien Chiang (‘23) and from there the Deerfield team never looked back, adding two more goals in the final frame. Tolve finished with 14 saves in his season debut. Next up for the Big Green is their home opener against NMH on Wednesday at 5pm.
