Wolverines Snared by Wildcats

Bridgton Academy traveled to University of New Hampshire to take on the Wildcats on a rainy Wednesday night. The deeper UNH squad was able to control the pace of the game and pull out the win, 13-6.

Bridgton played a solid first half and was able to get shots off by moving the ball quickly. Trailing only 6-3 at the half, the depth and pace at which UNH played at caught up to the Wolverines. The offense was not able to beat the defenders and the goalie made a number of saves.

"The pace of the game got to us. UNH moved the ball around and kept the pressure on us, not letting up on either end. Our lack of communication and inability to finish caused problems for us," said Head Coach Garrett Bamann. Bamann added, "There was no lack of effort on our part."

Kam Bumpus (Needham, MA) scored twice for the Wolverines, while Casey Helms (Sandwich, MA), Kevin Looney (Manhattan Beach, CA) and Steve Knezick (Burlington, NJ) added one goal apiece. Knezick handled the face-off duties, winning 53%. Mark Wood (Camarillo, CA) rounded out the scoring with a goal and two assists.

The Wolverines encourage fans to come out and support them during the upcoming weekend as they compete in the Crimson Classic at Harvard University on Sunday November, 1st. Bridgton will compete against prep schools and elite teams from New England, in front of a number of college coaches.
