It was a battle between the BFA-St. Albans and Woodstock boys hockey teams on Wednesday at Collins Perley.
The Wasps came out of the game with a 21-13 shot advantage, but it was the Bobwhites who came away with a 1-0 win behind a third-period powerplay goal from Levi Webb. Ethan Audy and Colin Audy picked up the assists on the goal.
“Woodstock has a good team. They only played two lines, but work extremely hard and they are strong,” said BFA assistant coach Ben Roberts. “They have good chemistry and do a nice job looking for one another. Their goaltender is very solid as well.”
Mike Telfer tallied his third shutout of the season with 21 saves in the game.
“Telfer played well and made some timely saves for us,” said Roberts. “He appears to be focused and is tracking pucks well.”
Roberts was also impressed with the play of Ethan Audy throughout the game, as well of the third line with Tommy Wilbur and Dan Rafferty splitting time at center with Liam Wood and Ezra Lanfear on the wings.
“Ethan had a nice game for us on defense,” he said. “He did a nice job breaking pucks out, getting pucks to the net in the offensive zone and did a nice job winning the battles in our end.
“Our third line is also starting to come together and did a good job on the forecheck,” he added. “They are getting better each game.”
The Bobwhites improved to 5-1 on the year and hosts CVU on Saturday for their next game.
