Darien -- The Staples Wreckers boys’ hockey team fell 6-1 to Division I New Canaan on Wednesday, Jan. 8. The Wreckers, a Division III team, held their own for a period and a half before the train came off the rails.
After matching a New Canaan goal with 6:55 left in the first period on a shot by Owen Sherman ’21, they went into the intermission down 2-1. After a tough first half of the second period, it fell apart for the Wreckers.
“I thought we didn’t go for every loose puck as hard as we could,” captain Alex Goodman ’20 said.
After having two power-play opportunities at the beginning of the second period and not capitalizing, the Wreckers lost a step and New Canaan went on the offensive. With two goals in the span of 1:41 at the end of the second period, the Wreckers fell behind by three and could not overcome it.
