In a very exciting game in Cambridge on January 2nd, the Mustangs took a victory over the Cambridge Falcons to put their record up to 4-2-0 overall. Halfway the first period, MHS freshman Max Porazzo took a shot from the blue line and scored his first career goal. Not too long after that, Cambridge tied up the game; and that would be the only action we would see from Cambridge that night. Jake Moore scored late in the first to put the Mustangs ahead 2-1. Ross Watson put the puck in the net to bring the Mustangs up to a 3-1 lead, and that was the end of the first period. Not too bad for Medford!
Although the second period was exciting with plenty of skating and shots on net, there were no goals from either team. The entire 15 minutes went by with no goals.
The third period almost had the same story, had it not been for captain Jake Porazzo who, in the last 2 minutes, scored the final goal of the game on a rebound in front of the Falcon’s net. The Mustangs were ahead 4-1, sealing the fate of the game.
Who played well in Coach DiBenedictis’ opinion? Connor Longergan, the MHS starting goalie, played really well, especially after the first period. Max Porazzo also had a big moment in his career: his first goal. Jake Moore really put the team ahead and put the score where it needed to be, giving momentum to his team. As Coach DiBenedictis always says, “It’s always good to get a league win. We need every win we can get.”
