Yarmouth Rolls Over Brunswick

The Clippers faced a struggling Brunswick squad and rolled to a 5-1 victory at Watson Arena. Not surprisingly, the game had all of the excitement one would expect from a Friday afternoon game, but turned into a Gong Show in the third period as the Brunswick penalty box was standing-room only.  Dan Latham ’18 picked up the victory with 12 saves on 13 shots. The win moves Yarmouth to a record of 6-4-1 with four more games over the next eight days.

In the opening period, Kurt Heywood ’19 made a nice pass to Michael Guertler ’19 who shoveled the puck on goal. Joe Truesdale ’18 crashed the net and buried the rebound to give Yarmouth a 1-0 lead. However, less than a minute later, Brunswick evened the score with a seeing-eye shot through traffic that surprised Latham.

At 4:16 of the first period, Cooper May ’18 capped a rink-length rush for what would prove to be the winning goal and Yarmouth took a 2-1 lead into the locker room. Spencer King ’20 was credited with the assist.

Cooper May added another tally 20 seconds into the second period when he surprised the Brunswick netminder with a quick snap shot. Dom Morill ’18 and Matt Sanborn ’19 picked up the assists.

Brunswick started to come alive the the second period, but a fortunate bounce led to a goal by John Decker ’18 and the Clippers had a comfortable 4-1 lead. Morrill and May were credited with the assists on Decker’s goal.

The third period was a Gong Show as the game devolved into an endless parade to the penalty box. Yarmouth rounded out the score with a power play goal. Sam Marjerison ’19 won a corner battle and Kurt Heywood made a nice pass to Matt Sanborn who skated uncovered from the point and buried his wrist shot for the final 5-1 score.
