Bourne, MA: The one loss Scituate Sailors came into Gallo Arena riding an 11 game winning streak looking to knock off another one loss team in the DI Hingham Harbormen. Hingham was able to beat a hot, tough, determined Scituate squad to win 5-2.
Scituate looked to stay hot as they pushed pace and hunted pucks with speed and grit early on in the first. They broke through with 10:11 left when Freshman James Sullivan caught a pass from Dylan McDonald and fired a wrister home from the high slot with 10:11 remaining. Scituate continued to press and both teams had chances. Hingham went on the power play about half way through the period and capitalized. Bobby Falvey slid a puck to Aidan Brazel on the wall. Falvey spun from pressure and attacked space, ripping one crossbar and down for the score. The game was tied with 6:36 remaining. Just under two minutes later, Hingham took the lead when Falvey ripped home a slap shot from the blue line. Connor Walsh picked up an assist. The period ended 2-1 and featured a lot of passion and pace.
The middle frame was back and forth but Hingham carried a slight advantage in the play. Scituate’s Cole Coyne made some athletic saves in the cage. With three minutes left, however, Paul Forbes placed a perfect pass on a 2v1 and Evan Corbett bumped it home for a 3-1 Hingham lead with 3:00 left. That’s how they would go in the locker room.
With 10:02 left in the third, Forbes stuffed a loose puck home on a deflection. 4-1 Hingham. 20 seconds later, Scituate’s Dylan McDonald scored an unassisted goal as he dipped to the cage and slid the puck home while falling down. The Sailors were now back within two goals. Soon after Coyne made a spectacular save to keep his team within reach. However, its was not meant to be as Evan Corbett ripped a puck home with 2:39 left to seal the win and a trip to the Patriot Cup Final Friday vs. Marshfield.
