Rink 1 – Boston Knights 3 vs. East Coast Leafs U18 2:
Two games and two wins for the Boston Knights at the 2019 Midget Fall Classic. They had to rally to do so, nipping the East Coast Leafs for their second victory of the day, 3-2, at the Foxboro Sports Center.
Through one, it was a good show for the Knights. Sean Malone and Ned Malolepzy each posted a goal to give Boston a 2-0 lead at the halftime intermission.
East Coast, opening tournament play against the Knights, rallied from their slow start, capitalizing in the second to tie the game on goals by Andrew Demerchant and CJ Jette.
