The Harwood boys’ hockey team took a tough loss over the weekend, falling 8-0 to Mount Mansfield Union. “MMU played well, they capitalized on their scoring chances and played great team defense,” said HUHS coach Shawn Thompson. “For us, it was a game to forget, we just didn’t show up from the start and it wasn’t our night. On to the next one.”
The loss came on the heels of a 3-2-win last week vs. Woodstock. “The boys came out strong just like I asked them to and we put the pressure on in the first period,” Thompson said. “The second period was plagued with penalties for both teams, and the third was a battle where we came out on top with two beautiful goals, one being a one-timer from Charly Seitz on a nice feed from Tanner Woodard behind the net, and the other a bar-down snipe from Tyson Sylvia on a nice feed from Jake Green. And again, a great performance from our goaltender Teighen Fils-Aime. The Woodstock team played well and it was a tough matchup. Their goaltender played outstanding as well. I was extremely happy with the W.”
