To kickoff the 2016-17 season the Hoyas took to the ice tonight against Mount St. Joes in a MAPHL League game. The Hoyas wasted no time getting on the board with an early first period goal by Alex Chaconas assisted by Matthew Scola. Mount St. Joes was able to tie it up midway through the first. Later in the first period Mount St. Joes struck again to take the lead 2-1. Prep wasted no time in the second, tying the game up 2-2 with a goal by Ben Holman, assisted by Tom Olson and James Flannery. Unfortunately in the second period prep could not find the back of the net and fell behind 4-2 after the second. After killing off many penalties, some questionable calls, the Hoyas were tired but still managed to create many opportunities in their offensive zone. The game ended with a 4-2 loss as Prep falls to 0-1 to start the season but looks ahead to Wednesday’s matchup vs. Walter Johnson. Hoya Saxa.
