Beverly boys’ hockey team off to a perfect start

Just minutes into the first period of Saturday night’s matchup between Beverly and Danvers at Salem State College, a line change set the tone for the night, serving as a microcosm for what has been a phenomenal 7-0-0 run for the black-and-orange clad Panthers.

As Beverly’s first line jumped back onto the ice, a big hit on Danvers led to senior captain Andrew Irving swiping the puck away. He dashed down the ice while edging away a defender to his left, and swiftly snapped a one-timer past Danvers goalie Alex Taylor for the first score of the game.
