REGION – The Algonquin Regional High School girls hockey team beat Pope Francis Preparatory School by a score of 2-1 on their home ice in Marlborough on Saturday, notching the win to improve their win-loss record to 6-0-1.
The victory was removed from the 4-0 start to this season that saw Algonquin outscore opponents by a whopping 34-0.
Nevertheless, it comes as Algonquin continues to find ways to win in a tougher portion of its schedule.
They’ve now won two consecutive games after a 1-1 tie with Natick on Dec. 22.
The teams played through a scoreless first period before Algonquin’s Emily Johns poked in a rebound from the top of the goalie crease with roughly 8:30 left in the second period.
That put Algonquin ahead 1-0 moving into this game’s final frame.
Though Pope Francis Prep evened the score, Algonquin answered in a matter of minutes. This time, it was Bryn Domolky who hammered home what would be the game winning goal.
The co-op team, consisting of players from Algonquin, Hudson, Nashoba, AMSA, Marlborough and Clinton, will now move on to face Longmeadow on Monday as it continues to move through the first half of its season.
