Westborough –  The Marlborough High School Panthers boys ice hockey defeated the Algonquin Regional Tomahawks 3-2 in a game played Saturday evening, Jan. 10 at North Star Ice Sports in Westborough.

Marlborough’s Mark Evangelous netted the go-ahead goal midway through the second period.  Marcus Chrisafidies and Collin Tunnera also scored for Marlborough.  Algonquin’s goals were scored by Gregory Grimaldi and Jack Gulachenski.

A number of COVID-19 precautions are in place for this season.  The game is played in two extended periods instead of the traditional three, masks are required at all times, locker rooms are closed and players arrive directly in uniforms, and fans are not allowed to attend.
