Redmen Roll Over Concord-Carlisle

The only team named the Patriots that those of us from Tewksbury don't cheer for, hosted the Redmen squad last night at the Edge in Bedford.

Tewksbury was coming off of their great weekend up in Maine and it looks like they brought some of that play home with them. Tewksbury came out hot with 2 goals in the first and didn't let up, as they beat Concord-Carlisle (CC)  4-1. 

The first period was all Tewksbury. They got off to a slow start though in the first few minutes. At 1:09 in the first period, Goalie Kyle Paquette ran into, no pun intended, a scary situation. A loose puck came down into Tewksbury's zone past the Redmen defensive unit. Paquette skated out to cover up the puck and collided with a forward from Concord-Carlisle. Paquette was shaken up on the play, but took a minute to get himself together, and played as strong as ever. 

On the play, Captain Ross Budryk took a penalty for hooking. CC manages a few good shots on the powerplay, but nothing gets by Paquette. But the real momentum shift came with 6:12 remaining in the period. CC's Senior Forward Robert Shapiro was called for Interference and received a minor penalty. With 5:09 left in the period, CC was called for another penalty, but before the whistle was blown, Ryan Petti put home the first goal of the night with the assists from Ross Budryk and Jack Cash. This powerplay goal cancelled the first penalty, and started the powerplay for the second penalty called and the Red capitalized. Colin Quinn put home a rebound, to extend the lead to 2. 

The period closed out with Tewksbury up 2-0, and all the momentum in their favor.

Just 1 minute into the second period, Cash and Quinn went down the ice on a 2 on 1. Quinn passed it over to Cash and he ripped a one timer past CC goaltender Cam Hill, 3-0. 

Tewksbury didn't stop there though. They were getting shots on net at every possible opportunity. To give them credit though, Concord-Carlisle was still taking it hard to Tewksbury, trying to get back into the game. But once again, their fight to come back was interrupted. 5 minutes and change into the period, Ryan Petti put home a nice wrist shot to make to 4-0. Following the goal, CC pulled Ben Hill, and replaced him with backup Leon Palandjian. 

The Redmen had another powerplay chance later in the period, but couldn't capitalize. Despite that, Tewksbury was the better team in the second period by a mile, and took a 4-0 lead into the final 15 minutes. 

The third period was rather quiet. Tewksbury spread out the minutes between all lines, both offensive and defensive. Ross Budryk absolutely wrenched a forward of the Concord-Carlisle team. The big hit got a nice reaction from the away crowd. CC finally got on the board in what looked like a defensive breakdown by Tewksbury, as Matt Johnson backhanded a shot through the 5 hole of Paquette. 

Even with that goal against in the garbage time of the third period, this game was all Tewksbury. They played an overall good game and took it to the Patriots.  Tewksbury improved their record to 5-1-1 on the year, and next play Wednesday, at home, against Wayland at 7:30 PM.
