The FHS boys hockey team had a game situation scrimmage with Braintree with the results as follows:

Scrimmage Results: Franklin 4 Braintree 2
1st Period Recap:
Off the drop of the puck the boys came out firing, up tempo and pushing the puck. Ben Jarosz, Sicchio & Dylan McEvoy had lots of chances to put one home, but the first goal of the game comes at 13:27 into the 1st off low blocker high slot shot by Logan Marchand that's then tipped by Ben Paterson to Anthony Lampasona who buries it. Second goal comes at 9:45 after Braintree dumps it into the zone and Aidan Kuykendall immediately snaps it up the boards past a Braintree defender to Ben Paterson who slides it to Dan Daley who's streaking down the right side of the ice for a 2 on 1, Dan Daley slides the puck over to Anthony Lampasona who punches the ticket to make it 2-0 Franklin. With 4:24 to go in the first Colby Wagner fends of a big breakaway but Braintree would find the net a minute later off a turn over inside the defensive zone. The boys finished off the period on the penalty kill allowing 2 shots and blocking 4. Strong first period by first year defenseman Vinnie Pasquarosa, returner Tommy Balducci who was a forecheck machine and Colby Wagner who was solid in net seeing 13 shots.
2nd Period Recap:
Quiet 2nd period until about 7:38 left in the period when Ben Paterson wins an offensive zone faceoff to Anthony Lampasona who slides it to the weakside defenseman Aidan Kuykendall. Aidan snaps a low wrister off the goalie's pad that finds its way to Dan Daley's stick who snipes it putting Franklin up 3-1. Period would end at 3-1 Franklin; Colby Wagner stops another 13 shots for the donut on the period and that will end his night. Returner Liam O'Rielly has another solid period and newcomers Mike Gates, Zach Langevin, Carter Balducci, Jack Wernig & Rhys Greenwood all working hard & playing strong. Couple in some good shifts from Carmine Iannuzzi and Lucas Sheehan that rounds out the period. Solid overall performance for the period but not as good as the first.
3rd Period Recap:
Starting the 3" Jake Torraco gets the call in the pipes to take the boy's home. The period is uneventful lots of back and forth until 6:08 left in the game Franklin takes a tough penalty and in the same transition Braintree puts one home to make it 3-2. Franklin will spend 5 of the last 6 minutes serving the major. Jake Torraco does a great job weathering the storm while Logan Marchand, Liam O'Rielly, Ben Jarosz and Ryan Sicchio go into lockdown mode. With 2:05 to go in the game and off a relentless forecheck by Dylan McEvoy and Tommy Balducci, they cause a turnover at mid ice and Tommy Balducci is off to the races putting it away making it 4-2 Franklin - FINAL!!! 
Solid night by the team! Great to see lots of puck distribution, team play & chemistry. Tons of hustle and of course some things to workon but we are onterra forma and no question season will be exciting!!
