The Pics defeated the Boston Advantage Wednesday afternoon in a fight filled game, that would envy HBO Saturday Night Fights.
The Pics opened up the scoring when Brock Baumann was able to capitalize after a series of misplays down in the Advantage defensive end when he was able to tip the shot from Kyle Nelson in. Owen Stacey was credited with the secondary assist.
Oliver Cookson was able to tap the 2nd goal in for the Pics when he received the pass from Matthew Tullo. Connor O'Brien broke down the wing all alone and it deflected off the Advantage goaltender. Tullo was able to pick it up and tossed it to a crashing Cookson who deposited it into the back of the net.
Xavier Erickson was able to get the 3rd goal of the game, and his third goal of the season (at the time) when he was able to get the pass from Timofey Basarab who was on his knees. Nicholas Lopes originally brought the puck down down the near wing but missed his first shot.
The Advantage were able to put two on the board to spoil the shutout, but Xavier Erickson was able to start the avenging when he picked up the errant pass from an Advantage player and was able to one time it into the back of the net. Nicholas Lopes and Brock Baumann were the last two Pics players who played it.
Matthew Kowal was able to tip in the next goal off a deflection off an Advantage player and deposited it lightly bar down into the back of the net. Ryan Moorhouse and Chase Reynolds both got the assists.
The Advantage were able to tap one more in to make it 5 - 3, but Owen Stacey was able to make it 6 - 4 when he was able to tip in a shot from the point from Joe Bouchard and deflect it in. Chase Reynolds got the secondary assist.
Oliver Cookson was able to get the final goal of the matchup when he deposited the puck in after a few rebounds and was able to get the puck in past behind the goaltender from the post. Ryan Moorhouse and Brock Baumann are both credited with the assists.
Wyatt Friedlander was credited with the win, stopping 24 out of 26 shots, playing two periods. Cameron Schnopp stopped 6 out of 7 shots in the final period. Andrew Engel stopped 53 out of 60 shots for the loss.
