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!

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!

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!

Hoyas’ Comeback Falls Short in Heartbreaking 5-4 Loss

26071970_360345511104048_5441337626860716032_n_thumb

For the second straight MAPHL game the Hoyas found themselves behind early as they struggled to get going out of the gate. The Hoyas spent most of the first period in their own zone, and were fortunate to only give up one goal before the end of the period. Less than a minute into the second period Spalding struck again to extend their lead. The Hoyas finally began to sense some urgency and cut the lead in half with a big goal by Pat Fitzgerald from Alex Chaconas and Connor McMahon. Although the Hoyas dominated time of possession and nearly doubled up Spalding in the number of shots, Spalding was able to score twice more to extend the lead to 4-1. The Hoyas would start off on the comeback trail late in the second with a power play deflection goal by Pat Fitzgerald assisted by Daniel Cole. During the middle of the second the Hoyas would find the back of the net again with a goal by Alex Chaconas assisted by Michael Davidson on the power play to cut the lead to one. With less than two minutes remaining and the Hoyas buzzing in the offensive zone Daniel Cole tied it with an assist by Alex Chaconas and Jack Donovan. The Hoyas looked like they were going to come away with a valuable point in the MAPHL standings until Spalding scored with 40 seconds left to stun the Hoyas. The Hoyas move on to rivalry week with two IAC/MAPHL matchups against St. Alban’s on Tuesday and Landon on Friday.
