Nick Souretis may not have had a case of déjà vu for the Marshfield boys’ hockey team Monday afternoon, but he recalled an eerily similar situation nearly two years to the date of the last Green Cup against Duxbury.
Souretis, now a senior, had a breakaway bid denied in overtime in the 2020 edition of the Green Cup between the Rams and Dragons at Hobomock Arena, a game which Duxbury went on to win in a shootout.
Tied after regulation once again, Souretis found the game on his stick after collecting a rebound in front off a Jake Hemingway offering. This time, he buried it, giving No. 17 Marshfield a 2-1 win 33 seconds into overtime in the 13th Green Cup game between the rivals.
“It feels pretty sweet,” Souretis said. “Sophomore year I had a breakaway in overtime in the Green Cup that I couldn’t finish, it feels good to finally put it away.”
The stakes for the game have been raised since the Rams (6-3-1, 1-1-1) last met the Dragons (5-3-2, 4-2-1) with the Green Cup on the line, as Marshfield became an official member of the Patriot League in the interim.
That, and the MIAA has made its pilot 4-on-4 overtime program official, meaning the winner from Souretis gave the Rams an extra point in the standings while the Dragons got none.
Marshfield coach Dan Connolly said that he’d been considering a shuffling of lines headed into overtime, but because of Souretis’ abilities on the faceoff dot, kept him on with Hemingway up front and two defensemen back.
The patience paid off, as the Rams were able to win an important game with a cause near and dear to their hearts as a bonus.
Each year, the team hosting the Green Cup gets to donate proceeds from the event to a charity of their choosing. This year, Marshfield elected to donate to Cops for Kids with Cancer in memory of Marshfield resident Danny Sheehan, an 8-year-old boy who passed away from brain cancer in August.
“It was an easy choice,” Connolly said, noting that the Rams have dedicated their season to Sheehan’s memory.
Souretis also had an assist on Marshfield’s goal in regulation, a strike on the power play from Will Doherty at 10:15 of the second period. Reilly Murray evened the game for Duxbury at 10:56 of the third in coach Mike Flaherty’s first Green Cup.
