“We’re real strong defensively I think they scored only two set goals, everything was in transition,” noted Masco head coach Tom Cobb, his club 6-4. “Transition cost us the game today. We’re usually not that sloppy. They got some breaks with numbers and scored.”
Marblehead’s Trevor Gelineau and the Chieftains Dylan Mann battled hard on faceoffs through all four quarters but the Magicians wing players snatched up more ground balls which allowed the visitors to push the break.
Timely saves from Maselik also helped Marblehead from falling behind at any point in the contest.
“He made some big time saves,” Wilkens said of his keeper. “Faceoffs and big saves giev you momentum shifts.”
Charlie Behrens scored twice in the first half and Max Craig also found the back of the net for the Chieftains. Dean Fader tallied a marker in the first half for the Magicians.
