By TJ Prame 01/17/2019, 8:00pm EST

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.

PREP SHUTS OUT GONZAGA FOR SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON

Flannery-chaconas Celebrating win

By TJ Prame 11/30/2018, 10:30am EST

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!

Davidson’s Hat Trick Propels Hoyas to 7-0 Win over St. Albans

27880914_172995586811117_4739020176572284928_n.jpg

The Hoyas hit the ice for the IAC Playoffs after a tough end to the regular season which saw them fall 5-2 to O’Connell. The second half of the season was a rough stretch for the Hoyas as they have not had a full roster at all this season. In the semi-finals against St. Albans the Hoyas put all the adversity behind them and shutout a young but talented St. Albans team. Midway through the first, Davidson opened up the scoring with an assist by Scola. Late in the first, Cole added to the lead with a goal of his own assisted by Flannery and Prame. The Hoyas carried this momentum into the second as Davidson found the back of the net again, assisted by Scola and Chaconas. The Hoyas special teams unit would then go to work with 2 straight power play goals, both by Flannery (the first assisted by Cole and Fitzgerald & the second by Fitzgerald). The Hoyas would continue their second period dominance with a goal by Cole assisted by Fitzgerald. Davidson would complete his hat trick in dramatic fashion with a power play goal assisted by Fitzgerald with 2 seconds left in the second period. Will Boggs posted his third shutout of the year with two of the three coming against St. Albans. The Hoyas move on to the IAC Championship for the second year in a row and will have a rematch against Landon on Thursday at 4:00 in Rockville. Hoya Saxa!

Hoyas Break Slump on Senior Night with 7-2 Win over Bullis

26869838_1540022399439295_4587075920245817344_n.jpg

The night started with a ceremony to honor Seniors, Will Boggs, Daniel Cole, Michael Davidson and Nathanial Deleede. The Hoyas hit the ice with a slow start, but midway through the first period James Flannery broke the stalemate with a goal assisted by Michael Davidson and Matthew Scola. Bullis came back quickly to knott it at 1 before the first intermission. The Hoyas dominated the second period opening up the scoring parade with a goal by Alex Chaconas assisted by Pat Fitzgerald. A few minutes later James Flannery (assisted by Marco Nascone) went top shelf to increase the lead to 3-1. Just over a minute later Alex Chaconas would score again on the power play with an assist by James Flannery and Pat Fitzgerald. Alex Chaconas continued his career night two minutes later adding another goal to put the score at 5-1. Later in the second Alex Chaconas got his fourth goal of the evening with an assist by Nathanial Deleede. The Hoyas would tack on one more with a goal by Matthew Scola assisted by Nathanial Deleede before Bullis would score the final goal of the game. This 7-2 win was crucial after a tough stretch for the Hoyas that included losses against Gonzaga and Dematha in the last twogames. This big win brings the Hoyas back to 500 in league play and sets up the final and most critical game of the season so far against O’Connell next Tuesday. Hoya Saxa!
