High school hockey game recaps
Par-en-Bas 8 – Yarmouth 1
After a tight first period the Par-en-Bas Sharks pulled well ahead of the Yarmouth Vikings for an 8-1 win in high school hockey league action on Jan. 4 at the Mariners Centre.
It was a 1-0 game after the first period, with Sharks player Jaden Samms scoring midway through the frame. But the Sharks – who vastly outshot the Vikings in the game – opened up the scoring with four goals in the second period and another three in the final frame.
Goals in the second period came off the sticks of Zach D’Arcy, Hayden Young, Josh Greene and Jaden Samms. One of the goals came when the Yarmouth goalie had lost his stick.
Scoring for the Sharks in the third period were Jaden Samms again (his third goal of the game), Christian d’Entremont and Denver d’Entremont.
Scoring Yarmouth’s lone goal was Nolan MacDonald in the third period.
Assists for the Vikings went to Jaden Watkins and Connor Crowell. Assists for the Sharks were contributed by Ethan Doucette (2), Yanick Cottreau, Andre d’Entremont, Denver d’Entremont, Jaden Samms (2), Rylan d’Entremont (#11)(2), Rylan d’Entremont (#16), Josh Green and Hayden Young.
