Brunswick hockey blanks Westminster, 2-0

In front of a packed house at Hartong Rink, the Brunswick School ice hockey team outlasted a talented, deep Westminster squad to earn a 2-0 victory.

The Martlets, now 6-3 on the year with losses to highly-touted Choate and Salisbury, were the best team the Bruins have faced thus far on the season.

Despite being outplayed at times, though, Brunswick kept Westminster to the perimeter and played a hard-nosed, physical brand of hockey to earn the clutch victory 

After a scoreless first period, during which Westminster dictated the pace and controlled the puck in the offensive zone, Brunswick fought back in the second and netted the game’s first goal.

Senior Tom Dunleavy found a rebound in front and after a few whacks the Brunswick co-captain found the back of the net to give the Bruins the 1-0 lead after two periods.

In the third, Brunswick did what it has done all year by committing to team defense, blocking shots and making the unselfish plays. 

As way of evidence, junior Matt Sealy took a wrister off his shin pads in the tilt’s final minute, chased down the loose puck and clinched the team’s 15th win of the seasons with an empty-netter. 

Junior goaltender Brian Ketchabaw was outstanding throughout, making 37 saves in all. 

Now 15-3 overall, and 11-3 in New England league play, the Bruins will next face-off against Millbrook School on the road Wednesday.
