Chase McKenna scored from the point with 38 seconds to play in the first period, kicking off the scoring in a 6-0 nonleague win for the third-ranked Hingham boys’ hockey team over Weymouth on Saturday at Pilgrim Arena.
The Harbormen (3-0-1) also got second-period goals from Joe Hennessy, Aidan Brazel, Connor Richardson, and Alec Dzavik. Charlie Packard followed it up with a third-period tally.
“We’re neighboring towns, I think [the rivarly] starts in youth hockey,” said Hingham coach Tony Messina. “The same kids know each other all the way up. I think they get up for us, we know they’re going to come in an emotional hockey game. It was standing room only today, the place was packed and it was a great game.”
Seniors Luke McLellan and Matt Gilman split time to combine for a 13-save shutout. McKenna added a pair of assists, as did Travis Rugg and Jack Rakauskas.
Through four games, the Harbormen have outscored opponents, 24-2.
“Who would have expected it?” Messina said. “There’s still a lot of hockey to be played, though.”
