Jake Black had the hat trick to lead The Woodstock Academy Centaurs boys’ hockey team to a 5-4 win over the previously undefeated Eastern Connecticut Eagles Jan. 6 at the Jahn Ice Rink at the Pomfret School.
“It was a good win for us, and a big plus that it came in a conference game,” said coach Mike Starr.
Jake Black had the hat trick including the game-winning goal off a shot assisted by both Matt Odom and Liam McDermott.
Black scored the second goal of the game for the Centaurs, who scored their first victory of the season in three games, with help from Avery Riva and Aiden Boisvert.
Riva assisted Black, who has six goals this season, on the third goal of the game for the Centaurs.
Connor Starr opened the scoring for the Centaurs off an assist from Pat Delaney.
Odom added the other goal for The Academy while Dylan Shea picked up the win in net.
The Centaurs have never lost to the Eagles (4-1), going 9-0 against them in the last five years.
“Eastern is a good team and to get a win at home against an undefeated team can be a big boost for us,” Starr said. “We are in a strange spot where we only played two games coming in (to Saturday) where other teams have played seven or eight. We are still learning to play together and are getting used to one another.”
Girls’ hockey wins second
Emma Ciquera finished with the hat trick to lead The Woodstock Academy girls’ hockey team to a 6-3 victory over St. Paul’s School Jan. 6.
The win made the ride worth it as the Centaurs had to travel to Concord, N.H., to play the game.
St. Paul’s took a 2-0 lead before the Centaurs could even get their legs underneath them in the first period.
But The Academy rallied behind Ciquera and Ellie Jellison in the second period.
Bridget Horst broke the ice with a goal to cut St. Paul’s lead in half.
Jellison tied the game with a goal which was followed by two from Ciquera and another by Jellison to send the Centaurs into the locker room with a 5-2 advantage.
St. Paul’s did close within a pair of goals early in the third period, but Ciquera sealed the win for the Centaurs (2-2) with her third goal of the game and fifth of the season.
