Greenwich boys hockey beats New Canaan for first time in five years

It’s been a long time coming, but head coach Bob Russel and the rest of the Greenwich High School boys ice hockey team has plenty of reasons to smile this holiday season.

For the first time since the 2010 season, the Cards were able to conquer New Canaan High School. Although they needed a few seconds of overtime Tuesday afternoon at the Dorothy Hamill Ice Rink, Big Red was able to come away with the thrilling 3-2 victory.

Only 35 seconds into overtime Matt Lodato passed the puck to Brian Silard in front of the net. Because of the high pass, Silard had difficulty controlling the puck, which bounced off his body and went five-hold on New Canaan goalie Liam Mooney for the game-winner.

Greenwich got the ball rolling when Montan Larson found the back of the net, as did Colin Kelly in the second period. Naoya Fukuchi assisted Kelly’s goal. Despite the victory, Greenwich was outshot 29-20 on the day.

For the Rams, the duo of Max Begoon and Tyler Ferraro each picked up goals.

In net, GHS goalie Bryan Archino finished with 27 saves, while Mooney netted 17 saves. With the victory, Big Red improved to 3-0 on the season and will be back in action Tuesday when they battle St Joseph High School Tuesday.
