After missing Upper Cape Tech’s previous game, Kevin Flynn made his presence felt in the Rams’ home win against Diman.
Hosting the Tigers on Monday, December 30, at Gallo Ice Arena, the forward scored a goal and added two assists to guide the Rams to a 4-0 win.
Ryker King opened the scoring for UCT before Flynn’s tally put the Rams up, 2-0, with less than 30 seconds left before the first intermission. Jack Driscoll and Thomas Kalweit assisted on King’s goal while Cam Lumsden and Matt Paling helped on Flynn’s goal.
Lumsden put the Rams up 3-0 in the second period, finishing off passes from Flynn and Paling. Paling, a freshman transfer from Wareham, capped the scoring later in the third on assists from Flynn and King.
Southeastern/West Bridgewater/Bristol Plymouth 6, UCT 0
Playing without their top offensive player and senior captain, Flynn, the Rams boys’ hockey team was ill-equipped to square off with a potent Hawks’ team on Saturday, December 28, at Gallo Ice Arena.
The combination of Pat Gonsalves, Paling and Lumsden played well in Flynn’s absence while senior goaltender Will Hanly performed admirably while under constant duress. But with or without UCT’s 100-point scorer, Southeastern has dominated the Rams in recent memory. Following this six-goal win, the Hawks are 3-0 in their last three meetings while outscoring the Rams 18-0.
UCT (3-3, 2-1 MAC) travels to the Canton Ice House Saturday, January 4, to meet Blue Hills in a Mayflower Athletic Conference road game at 7:45 PM.
