Linemates MacLaughlin (2 goals), Irving each net 3 points as unbeaten Beverly downs Headers again

(Continued)

After McLaughlin’s second goal to begin the third, Marblehead put the pressure on immediately. Matt Koopman’s pretty goal out front, where he took a pass from his older brother in the slot and pivoted to his right before roofing a shot bar down, cut his team’s deficit to 4-2 with just under 14 minutes left. He struck again a little over two minutes later after receiving a feed from his twin and flinging a quick snapshot from off the left wing boards that snuck between Birarelli’s pads.

“Marblehead’s got some kids who can really fly and shoot the puck well,” said Gilligan, “Fortunately, I think we tired them out a bit in the second period with our forecheck and got ourselves the lead. But you can never rest easy against those guys.”
