UCT Boys' Hockey vs. Wareham/Carver — December 14, 2019

The Upper Cape Tech boys' hockey team opened its 2019-20 campaign against Wareham/Carver on Saturday, December 14 at Gallo Ice Arena.

In a very high-scoring affair, the Wareham/Carver Vikings hockey team scored at least two goals in every period, including a five-goal third period, to race past Upper Cape Tech, 10-4.

James L’Heureux and Quirino doCanto each had hat tricks for the Vikings, which regularly threw around its ample size on the ice.

The Rams had a pair of goals from Ryker King, who transferred to UCT from Wareham this season, while Matthew Paling had a tally and senior captain Kevin Flynn recorded a goal and two assists in defeat.

The Vikings opened up the scoring before the Rams answered back with a goal of their own to knot the game up at one apiece. In a four-on-four situation, Flynn fed Paling for the game-tying goal with 8:06 left in the first period. But Wareham/Carver responded with two unanswered goals.

King scored twice in the second period, once on a power play, but so too did the Vikings, which carried a 5-3 advantage into the final frame, when the wheels came off for UCT.

Wareham/Carver exploded for five third-period goals, one of which came short-handed, while Flynn added his goal for the Rams.

Senior goaltender Will Hanly was pulled with 12:25 left in the game in favor of back-up Evan Mansfield.

UCT (0-1, 0-0 MAC) is back in action December 20 when the team will meet ORR/Fairhaven at Travis Roy Rink in Marion at 3:30 PM for a non-conference meeting.
