Three For Kathleen

Kathleen Barrett netted a hat trick against Martha’s Vineyard as the Sandwich girls topped the Vineyarders on the island Wednesday night, 5-2.

Freshman Kathleen Barrett scored a hat trick for the Sandwich High girls’ ice hockey team on Wednesday night, January 12 on Martha’s Vineyard to help keep the Knights’ perfect start to the season going. Sandwich improved to 5-0 with a 5-2 win on the island, setting up a big Cape and Islands League showdown tomorrow between the top two teams in the league.

SHS will host Falmouth High School (5-2, 3-0 C&I) with a chance to take pole position in the race for the league title and exact a little revenge on the Clippers, who topped SHS for last year’s crown. Falmouth also played on Wednesday night and defeated Barnstable, 4-1. SHS beat Barnstable last week, 3-1.

Barrett had a goal in each period for SHS, including one late in the first period to tie the score at 1-1. Sydney Sawyer assisted on the equalizer.

Sawyer also set up the next goal, which gave the Knights a 2-1 lead at the 2:51 mark of the second. She fed the puck to Caroline Barrett for the go-ahead snipe. At 6:36 Barrett struck again with an unassisted goal to make it a two-goal lead, and just 22 seconds after that Chloe Schultz came through with a goal to make it 4-1.

Just 62 seconds into the third period Kathleen Barrett scored again to complete her hat trick and give Sandwich a 5-1 lead. MV got one back just moments later, but that was the last one to get behind Sophia Visceglio, who had 17 saves in the game.
