After a messy early start for the Fishermen, the boys took home the win in an intense battle with the Newburyport Clippers Wednesday night. 

Goals were scored by Asst. Capt Colby Jewell (2), Jackson Hakes, Asst. Capt James Sanfilippo, and Asst. Capt Chris Karvelas. Assists for the Fishermen were Jewell, Asst. Capt Brett Cunningham (3), Charlie Terelak, Cade Cooper, Chris LoJacono, Will Lowthers, and Hakes.

Riley DeHaan was solid between the pipes for the team, making a good catching save with his glove during the first. The puck wasn’t stalemated in any zone for the first period, with puck movement by LoJacono, Terelak, and Hakes helping the Fishermen bring the puck into Newburyport’s zone. Captain Joe Orlando was a powerhouse on defense, laying good blocks at the Clipper offense. With a minute left in the game, Newburyport hit the back of the net to lead the Fishermen 1-0.

The boys fell behind the Clippers further with 9 minutes left in the second period. With the score 2-0, the Fishermen had to score and had to score quickly. Hakes came to Gloucester’s rescue, scoring with 8 minutes left in the second off a Jewell pass. Karvelas and Sanfilippo scored with 4 minutes and 2:30 minutes left, respectively. Terelak assisted Karvelas’s goal and Cunningham assisted Sanfilippo’s. 

Now leading the Clippers 3-2, Jewell scored his first goal of the night with less than 2 minutes in the last period before scoring again on an empty Newburyport net. 

With Jewell’s two goals tonight, he is closer to joining his linemate Cunningham in Gloucester’s coveted 100-Point Club. Cunningham achieved the feat in last week’s Cape Ann Savings Bank Tournament championship against Barrington. “100 points is a great accomplishment and I am very honored to be able to reach the 100 point club.” says Cunningham, before mentioning how he “could never have done it without [his] teammates.”

“It’s a huge win for us against a very good Newburyport team,” Captain Orlando said post-game. “We showed a lot of guts coming back from a 2-0 deficit and we never looked back. Overall, it was a great start to our toughest part of our season and the momentum and confidence for our team will be high going into Saturday’s big conference game aganist Masco.”

The boys now stand 6-1 and await the arrival of the Masconomet Chieftans this Saturday at home. Come support the boys as they look to continue their streak and take the win aganist their NEC opponents.
