Newbridge Academy Varsity Prep U18 – Day One
The Newbridge Academy Varsity Prep U18 team finished up the first day of action at the PSHF Burlington Showcase with a 1-1 record. The boys fell in their first game 5-2 to College Andre Grasset. Goal scorers were David Gabriel-Cote and Caleb Hart.
In the second game, Newbridge was up against a top end prep school in St.Mikes. The boys came out slowly and found themselves down 6-1 halfway through the second period. They put one in the net to make it 6-2 heading to the second intermission. They came out a new team in the third, storming back to tie the game 6-6, and eventually winning in a shootout. Key players in the game were: Matt Duggan (1G, 3A), William Neault (3A), Christopher Piche (1G, 2A), Alberto Pison (1G, 2A), David Gabriel-Cote (2G), and Parker Stewart (2G). Gavin McGinn shook off a rough start and was fantastic down the stretch for the win. “We struggled for 5 periods today, but we stuck to the process and were rewarded with a great come-back win. Everybody stayed together and stayed positive, which was key. The plan is to come out and play 6 strong periods tomorrow”.- Matt Anthony, Head Coach
