In their opening home game for the ‘22-’23 season (which was played down the street at the International Skating Center of Connecticut) the Martlets were excited to show their talents against the Doors of Deerfield. With many new players joining the returning veterans, everyone was looking forward to their first competition of the season. It did not take long for the Martlets to put points on the board. Gigi Filipetti ‘26 scored twice in the first 30 seconds of the game, assisted by her linemates Cassie Goundrey ‘24 and Liza Merrill ‘24. With the support of two strong defensive lines (Lily Vincent ‘25, Francesca Carnovale ‘23, Allysen Whitehead ‘25 and Claire McGuiness ‘26), the JV players combined to put up five more points in the first period. Additional goals from Vincent ‘25, Goundrey ‘24, Whitehead ‘25, Lucy Wainwright ‘25 and Mary Styspeck ‘24 gave the Martlets a comfortable lead going in to the second period. However, the Deerfield players did not give up, and continued fighting to score on Martlet goalie Ava Lynch ‘23, who had many saves during the game. Deerfield played tough and managed to put two goals on the board during the second period and one in the third. However, Westminster players Anna Klapman ‘26, Anastasia Augsberger ‘26, Mira Hugabonne ‘25, Charlotte Radin ‘25, Mia Lee ‘24, Adela McKinney ‘25 and Paige Herlihy ‘25 all played well and contributed to the fast-paced game. Additional goals from Stypeck ‘24 (2), Radin ‘25, Herlihy ‘25, Whitehead ‘25 and Merrill ‘25 allowed the Martlets to switch some of the offensive and defensive players so that everyone had a chance to work on set plays at both ends of the ice. The Girls JV team looks forward to their next game on Saturday at Westminster again Northfield-Mt. Hermon at 1:30 pm.
