Rink 2 – 95 Giants U18 vs. Boston Advantage Showcase:
Rink 3 – East Coast Leafs U18 5 vs. Boston Jr. Huskies White (Clancy) 1:
Fueled by a strong start to the contest, the East Coast Leafs dealt the Boston Jr. Huskies their first loss of the 2019 Midget Fall Classic, 5-1, on Sunday afternoon at the Foxboro Sports Center.
All of the Leafs offense came in the game’s opening 25-minutes. Connor O’Niel on the power play, Jason Sullivan, Alex Wheeler, Declan Lovett – also on the power play – and Kevin Barrera came through with the goals, but it was Jack McCarthy’s three assists that led the game in scoring.
A shorthanded goal by Eddie Collins in the second half did get the Huskies on the scoreboard, but it was the only black mark on Ray Ivers’ record in the contest, the Leafs’ netminder locking it down otherwise for the 5-1 victory.
