Junior Will Pinney said that despite the slow start the team made a massive comeback after being down by three goals with 13 minutes left in the third period.

“After that third goal scored on us we showed a lot of energy and we started playing as a team and passing the puck to make some huge plays,” Pinney said. “All the emotion turned out to be positive because we came back from a three goal deficit.”

The boys’ hockey team lost to Hopkins in the first round of sections at the Hopkins Pavilion Feb. 19, bringing its final record to 9-15-1.

Head Coach Andrew Sackrison said the outstanding effort of throughout the third period is what led the game to overtime.

“Unbelievable effort, we completely outplayed Hopkins but I told them you can’t fault the effort as it often comes down to one play and they made it so kudos to them,” Sackrison said.

Gerald Perelman said the highlight of his season was scoring a varsity goal.

“Scoring a varsity goal was huge, a goal in hockey especially on the varsity level is so awesome,” Perelman said.

Sackrison said even for the bitter loss he is proud of all his team has accomplished throughout the year.

“We have been snakebit for putting the puck in the net and it was a great game full of great hockey so for us to come storming back and to end the way it did really stings but I’m proud of every single one of the kids for staying with it until the end,” Sackrison said.

Perelman said despite the loss of his last game in high school hockey he will remember the team bonding the most.

“I know it’s sad and all but it was fun while it lasted, I think just getting to the rink everyday and hanging out with the guy is what I will value the most,” Perelman said.
