Cavaliers Squirt AA2 keep winning

The Southern New Hampshire Cavaliers AA2 put up another big win against the Haverhill Thunder 7-2.

The Haverhill offense got off to a quick start with a goal that found an opening under goalie Matt D’Ortona’s stick. The Cavaliers bounced right back, though, with the offensive line of Aiden Rowe, Will Dodge and Jack Conmy.

Dodge broke over the blue line, beat one defenseman to set up a quick snap shot by Rowe to tie the game 1-1. Just minutes later. Ryan Bizier scored on a power play, rushing the puck and scoring short side for a 2-1 Cavs lead. Late in the first period, the Cavs’ Ryan Kelley broke up a play at his blue line, leading Dodge in to end the first 3-1.

In the second period forwards Jonathan Childs, Flood, and Bizier continued to pressure the Thunder in their own end. Flood scored his first of two, assisted by Bizier to make it 4-1.

Cavalier defensemen Bryson Giersch, Thomas Cahill and Matthew MacBean frustrated the Thunder’s offense on each of their shifts. After the Thunder cut the lead to 4-2.

Still on the power play, the Cavaliers came back strong play from linemen Jayke Lacasse, Bizier and Flood. Lacasse set himself up as a screen, allowing Bizier to work the puck to Flood, who scored to put the Cavaliers back up by three.

In the third period, Cahill and Rowe combined for the sixth goal of the game as Cahill threaded a pretty pass through the neutral zone to Rowe, who scored high glove side. Isaac Windsor finished the Cavaliers scoring with a wicked wrist shot off a rebound.
