HINGHAM — It was a portrait of precision.
The undefeated Falmouth High School girls ice hockey team took its record to 4-0 Saturday night at the Falmouth Ice Arena, defeating the visiting Hingham High Harbormen, 4-0, much
to the delight of the hometown crowd on hand.
Brooke Bowman, Madison Haberl, and senior assistant Kelly Ferreira each scored goals in the first period to give the hosts all they would need and then some to take home yet another decisive victory. Ferreira added a second goal on the night in the third period (14:00), assisted by Emily Sanidas and Hannah Callahan.
Callahan, a junior defenseman, and Sanidas, a junior forward, also assisted on Bowman’s first period icebreaker at the 7:52 mark that made it 1-0.
Then Hingham got itself into a bit of trouble, sending two players to the penalty box and giving the Clippers an opportunity to really pour it on. In a five-on-three power play situation, Haberl took the puck out from behind the net, wheeled around and fired the puck into the top corner of the net past Hingham goalie Julianne Lynch to make it 2-0. Haberl was assisted by Ericka Meissner.
The Hingham bench had a handful of things to say to the referees and the Harbormen were assessed a minor bench penalty following the second Falmouth goal.
Seeing Hingham’s collective frustration as an opportunity to inflict more damage, Ferreira netted he first of her two goals on the night at the 10:55 mark of the first period, assisted by Hannah Callahan. The score after one frame: 3-0, Falmouth. After a scoreless second period, Ferreria tacked on her second goal of the night in the third.
“Our special team play was great,” said head coach Erin Hunt. “We scored on the power play and killed off many penalties (of our own).”
Hunt’s goalie, Maddie Scavotto notched another shutout onto her goalie stick. Her goals against average this season is a phenomenal 0.50 thus far.
Falmouth next faces Watertown/Belmont on the road on Tuesday, Dec. 23 at 6:00 pm.
