In a battle between two bitter boys’ hockey Catholic Conference rivals, the No. 1 BC High Eagles erupted for four second-period goals and routed the second-ranked Catholic Memorial Knights, 5-1, Wednesday at UMass-Boston.
The game started with offensive outbursts from both teams. CM senior forward Aaron Clancy scored just 11 seconds into the game.
Not to be outdone, BC High’s Tim Larocque tied it less than a minute later. The first period slowed, with neither able to recapture the early offensive fireworks.
Despite the almost immediate answer to CM’s goal in the first, Eagles coach John Flaherty wasn’t ecstatic about the first period.
“We didn’t start the game [the way] we wanted to but we took over after the first five minutes and that momentum carried over into the second period,” said Flaherty.
The Eagles owned the puck for the first five minutes to start the second, with Michael Brooks capping the surge with the go-ahead goal.
The Eagles scored three more goals before the period ended to complete the rout.
