Nashua North skaters returns to winning ways
January 21. 2014 12:54AM
Losers of three straight games after winning their first five, the Nashua North Titans were desperate for a win Saturday.
"It was important for us to end the losing streak," said Titans coach Dan Legro after Dan LeBlanc and Jake Latham scored twice in a 6-1 Division I hockey victory over Bishop Brady of Concord at Conway Arena.
Nashua North (6-3) had lost consecutive games to Memorial, Trinity and St. Thomas Aquinas of Dover. "Those loses weren't indicative of how we played," said Legro. "We couldn't bury the puck against Memorial (3-2 loss ) and we led Trinity (2-0 after two periods) before penalties and mistakes on our part turned that game around (3-2 loss). We only dressed 12 players because of sickness in our loss (7-2) against St. Thomas. We don't play until Saturday (at home against Central) and that's good because it gives us time to regroup and get healthy."
Robert Lavine had one goal and three assists for the Titans, and LeBlanc added two assists. Joey Paige also scored for Nashua North. Shelby Harrington scored the lone goal for Brady (0-6) against North netminder Jake Genest, who stopped 24 shots.
Bedford 4, Bow 2: In Concord Saturday in a Division II match, Bedford (8-0) remained unbeaten thanks to two goals by Harrison Voloshin and one each from Mike Dee and Ben Desrosiers. Bow (6-2) was led by goals from Jake Rand and Jeremy Duhamel.
