Prep V1 vs Walter Johnson

The Hoyas started off the season right this Monday with a commanding 8-2 victory over the Wildcats of Walter Johnson. After the first two games were missed because of refs not showing up and a cancellation, the squad was eager to finally get out on the ice and show this city what it’s made of, and boy did they deliver.
The first period itself was pretty uneventful, that is until WJ slapped in a late goal with about three minutes left, the first of the game. This set off sophomore Tom “You Can’t See Me” Olson who quickly answered by drilling in the Hoyas’ first goal of the season with a beautiful feed from fellow sophomore Ben Holman. Tom and Ben set of a bombardment of six goals to which WJ could not answer until only four and a half minutes remained in the third period. Senior captains Jack “Cobra” Olson, Joey “Blades” Altemus, and Ryan “Half” Holman rose to their new positions of leadership on a line that would tally up eleven points consisting of four goals and seven assists. Junior Michael Melch and sophomores Johnny Mac Mulera and Alex Ratliff buried the remaining three goals. Freshman Daniel Cole proved his worth, racking up two assists, along with fellow ninth-grader and netminder Will Boggs, who got the start in the first two periods after senior Dillon Nobel suffered a minor injury in a weekend football tournament. Junior Michael “Mags” Magnarelli rounded off the stat sheet with his assist to Ratliff with two minute left to go.
The boys played their hearts out in this game, but after a short break for Thanksgiving they have a tough schedule to play. The Hoyas begin the month of December with a battle against arch-rival Landon on Tuesday, Dec 2 at Rockville Ice Arena and another skirmish against Bullis the very next day, also at RIA. The Hoyas will cap off that week with a match against the purple eagles of Gonzaga on Friday, Dec 5 at Cabin John.
