Martlets Move to 2-0

The Martlets hosted the Wild Boars from Choate this afternoon for a 3pm puck drop in Jackson Rink. The Martlets, fresh off a solid home opener win, were excited to be back at it this afternoon against league opponent, Choate. The boys were a bit slow to boil in this one and the coaches could feel it before the game even started. Saturday night was electric in Jackson Rink and this afternoon's attendance probably topped at around 35 people, many of whom were parents cheering as loudly as they possibly could to get the Black and Gold going. The players knew they needed to create their own energy in the rink this afternoon and despite a solid few shifts, Choate struck first on the power play to take the 1-0 lead around 9 minutes into the first frame. The Martlets settled in and kept pushing and with about 5 minutes left in the period Blake Burke '25 found Aksel Sather '22 in front for the Martlets first goal. Minutes later Quinn Pine '25 would find Blake Burke '25 for the second of the day sending the Martlets to intermission up 2-1. The Black and Gold would not turn back and played a solid final 26 minutes, netting 6 more to Choates 1. Matteo De Luca '24 was great in net all day stopping 26 of 28 and the offense was driven by Ryan Shaw '24 (3 goals, 1 assists), Blake Burke '25 (1 goal, 2 assists),  and Quinn Pine '25 (1 goal, 2  assists). Other goal scorers were Michael Bianco '23, and Cullen Horn '25 who each tallied one a piece. The team heads to Brunswick Saturday for a 5pm game.
