The Hoyas game against Bullis was rescheduled to this Monday in what will be the first of four games for Prep this week. The Hoyas were on a drought after having both games the previous week cancelled due to inclement weather, and the players were eager to take to the ice once again. The Hoyas came out strong, taking home the first, second and third goals, the first and third scored by James Flannery and the second by Alex Chaconas. Bullis managed the find the back of the net late into the first, but the Hoyas defender Alex Demers was able to score in the final minutes to put the Hoyas at a 4-1 lead going into the second. Prep dominated the second-period outshooting Bullis 22-5 and scoring 4 times to give the Hoyas a sizeable lead that would carry them to the end of the game, with the final score totaling at 8-3. The Hoyas next game will be one Wednesday the 6th where they will face off against St. Johns.
The Hoyas played at home this Friday when taking on their IAC opponents at St. Albans. It was also senior night for Prep, and the Hoyas thanked the seniors who have contributed to the team. Prep started out behind but quickly tied up the score with James Flannery scoring a nice goal to put the Hoyas on the board. The first period ended tied, but with Prep having nearly twice as many goals. The Hoyas went into the second period hopeful, but a questionable call that led to 5 minutes of man down play hurt the Hoyas and gave St. Albans the opportunity to put another goal on the board. The Hoyas and St. Albans went into the third neck and neck, with the score being tied 3-3 at one point, but St. Albans managed to pull away with a fourth goal and a fifth empty net. The Hoyas look to next week when they take on Spalding on Wednesday.
In a game with a total of 65 shots on goal, five power plays and numerous quality scoring chances, it was the two goalies who were the top performers in the 0-0 tie between Georgetown Prep and Bishop O’Connell at Cabin John Arena on Friday night. O’Connell’s Matthew McCarey stopped all 45 shots he faced while Elon Granston was a perfect 20 for 20 for Georgetown Prep.
The Hoyas were backed by a mass of students when they took the ice this Wednesday to play Landon. The Hoyas were looking for a win against their IAC opponents after taking a loss to Gonzaga the previous week. Both teams came out strong, but it was the Hoyas that took home the first goal of the game scored by James Flannery. The Hoyas were mostly on the defensive when the first period ended, with the shot count coming out heavily in favor of Landon. In the second period, however, The Hoyas dominated the ice despite Landon scoring early in the period. Goals from Patrick Fitzgerald in the eleventh minute and breakaway goal from Alex Chaconas in the thirteenth put the Hoyas at a 3 – 1 lead going into the third period, as well as closing the shot gap significantly. Prep continued to control the game in the third quarter, and despite significant time playing a man down, denied Landon a second Goal. Prep Goalie Elon Granston can be largely commended, saving 32 out of 33 shot put on net. The Hoyas hope to continue their success going into their next game against Bishop O’Connell, a team that they have already defeated in their season opener.
Prep Tops Mt. St. Joe’s
Georgetown Prep’s two-goal first period was enough as the Little Hoyas defeated Mt. St. Joseph’s, 3-1, at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel on Monday night.
James Flannery’s first of two goals got Prep on the board 8:33 into the game after taking a pass from Patrick Fitzgerald and scoring from close range. Alex Demers picked up the secondary assist on the play. Less than three minutes later, Alex Chaconas scored unassisted in what turned out to be the game-winner, after he forced a turnover and chipped the puck past Mt. St. Joseph’s goalkeeper Connor Churko.
Ryan Trott and Dusty Ziegler assisted on Matt Adams’ goal at 10:24 of the second, which brought the Gaels to within one, but the home team could not muster the equalizer.
Georgetown Prep peppered Churko with 38 shots on goal, while Prep goaltender Elon Granston made 20 saves on 21 shots.
The Georgetown Prep Hoyas continued their winning streak with a 10-2 victory over Churchill. The Hoyas came out strong with a goal within the first minute of regular play, with more to follow shortly after. The Hoyas took a dominant lead after the first period with a 6-1 lead, making 6 out of their 8 shots on goal. The second period was quieter than the first, with both teams scoring a single goal. The game concluded with the Hoyas putting 3 goals into the back of the net without answer from Churchill, finalizing the score at 10-2 Some notable goals came from Maine native Alex Demers, scoring his first and second ever Prep goals, and James Flannery scoring 3. The Hoyas look to continue their winning streak with a victory this Friday in their first conference game against DeMatha at 5:00 in Laurel . Hoya Saxa
The Hoyas took on Gonzaga in their second game of the season this Friday. The Hoya’s offense came out strong scoring the first goal of the game after less than five minutes of playing time on a goal from sophomore Conner McMahon off an assist from cousin, sophomore Patrick Fitzgerald. The Hoya’s scored again in the first period on an unassisted breakout form senior James Flannery to put the Hoyas up 2-0, despite a strong offensive presence from Gonzaga. The second period was scoreless for both teams, despite a considerable amount of time in the penalty box for both sides. Prep had an opportunity to further their lead when Gonzaga went down a man with a 5 minute major penalty, but the Hoyas were unable to capitalize with two penalties of their own towards the latter half of Gonzaga’s major. The third period saw aggressive play from both sides, with Gonzaga and Prep both making numerous offensive drives, but the Hoyas would finish up the game with an empty net goal from Patrick Fitzgerald within the final minutes of the game to put the nail in the coffin for Gonzaga. Preps victory can be largely attributed to Junior goalie Elon Granston blocking 30 shots from Gonzaga, letting none in and propelling the Hoyas to victory. Hoya Saxa!
Your @GeorgetownPrep hockey team opened exhibition play with a 3-2 win over O’Connell. Patrick Fitzgerald picked up the first goal of the game and season at the 6:15 mark in the first period. O’Connel tied things up with 8:54 left in the second. The score remained tied until the 6:43 left in the third on a goal by senior, Cameron Bass, assisted by linemates Patrick Fitizgerald and James Flannery. O’Connell followed up with a tying goal almost immediately.
The highlight of the game began with 3:47 left in the game when the Little Hoyas were forced into a 3 on 5 penalty kill. After some great goal tending by junior Elon Grantson and gritty play by Prep’s penalty killers, the team got back to even with 1:47 left in the game. Patrick Fitzgerald put the game away with his second goal of the game off a pin point assist from junior Peter Roach with 1:05 left in the game.
