The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - SPORTS -

mance in net from Michael Hen­der­son, played tough de­fense through­out and turned up the heat late in third to get the game tied.

“The first goal was re­ally one of the only times we got it out in front,” Garry said of Matt Cade’s tally with 6:51 to go. “We re­ally cap­i­tal­ized on that.”

For most of the evening, Hat­boro-Hor­sham (2-2, 2-2 con­fer­ence) had kept the Tro­jan of­fense in check.

“They were stack­ing the mid­dle, just try­ing to keep us to the out­side,” Garry said. “They did a good job of cut­ting off most of the pass­ing lanes but I felt like once we got the puck in the mid­dle, we could do what we wanted.”

Tarek Elsab­bagh scored in the sec­ond pe­riod to put Hat­boro in front, 1-0. Gam­bino helped keep it that way, mak­ing 28 saves.

“It was very in­tense,” Gam­bino said of the con­test at Hat­field Ice. “You just gotta keep your­self fo­cused.”

“Joey is gonna play but of course it takes the five guys in front of him, shut­ting down the Garry broth­ers, of course. It’s six men out there work­ing to­gether,” Hat­ters coach Gianni Lafratta said.

In an evenly-played con­test, Hat­boro had the slight edge in shots, 31-30. The Hat­ters shut out the high-pow­ered Tro­jans (42) for nearly 42 min­utes, and then Garry worked his magic with a minute to play.

“It was a fan­tas­tic game, ex­cept for the out­come,” Lafratta said with a smile.
