The GHS Boys hockey team had their 6-game winning streak snapped this weekend during a difficult  4-5 loss against the Masconomet Chieftans. Despite a comeback by the Fishermen late in the game, the team could not get ahead to tie or take the lead.

Assistant captain Brett Cunningham scored a hat trick while his linemate and assistant captain Colby Jewell scored one goal.

Gloucester struck first against Masco, with Jewell scoring with assists by Cunningham and Chris Dailey. With a mere 30 seconds, however, Masco’s Ben Merrill scored to end the period tied up.

Gloucester had a rough 2nd period, with the Cheiftans scoring 4 goals to distance themselves from the Fishermen. While Cunningham scored twice in the second and once in the third, the Fishermen did not score the one goal they needed to tie and preserve the streak. Assist on Cunningham’s goals went to Captain Joe Orlando, Jewell, Colby Warren, and Jackson Hakes.

Despite the loss, Gloucester played a hard game that didn’t get exhibited with just the score. All three lines executed the game with skill, from the strong first line of Cunningham and Colby, the second line of Chris LoJacono and Charlie Terelak, to the third liners of Giacomo Martell and Colby Warren. 

Nick Tarantino was far behind Masco’s goalie Chris Sacco in saves, with Tarantino saying 20 less shots than Sacco. Gloucester was shooting hard at Sacco, having two power play chances to tie the game as well as pulling Tarantino for an extra skater. However, these efforts were stopped the Sacco in Masco’s net and ended the game in a Masco win.

The boys now hit the road on a three game pursuit, starting with Winthrop on Wednesday. The team is hoping to bounce back from this close defeat and move their record from 6-2.
