Slow Start Dooms Wolverines

Bridgton traveled to Exeter, NH to take on Phillips Exeter Academy, and despite an impressive showing in the second half it was too little, too late, for the Wolverines as they fell 10-7.

BA got off to a slow start and Exeter took advantage as they ran out to a 5-1 lead in the first half. Sloppy play by the Wolverines allowed the Lions to pull away early on. Bridgton closed to within 5-2 at the half.

In the second half Bridgton played much more efficiently but could not close the gap anymore as the final was 10-7. Coach Bamann said, "In the first half we did not take care of the ball, and were playing too much defense. In the second half we were more impressive and executed more effectively."

JP Coombe (Annapolis, MD) lead the scoring attack registering four goals to go along with an assist. Kevin Looney (Manhattan Beach, CA) and Colin Palma (Chappaqua, NY) each collected two assists and one goal. Casey Helms (Sandwich, MA) scored one goal and had an assist, and Steve Knezick (Burlington, NJ) was credited with one helper. Sean Igoe (Oceanside, NY) was credited with nine saves in net.

The Wolverines next take on the Bowdoin Polar Bears on Wednesday in Brunswick, ME at 4:30 PM.
