Roundup: Pentucket hockey upsets North Reading

Pentucket 3, North Reading 0

The Pentucket hockey team pulled off a shocker Saturday with a convincing 3-0 victory over previously undefeated and Cape Ann League-frontrunner North Reading.

“We knew they were supposedly the best team in the league, and we just wanted to prove otherwise,” said goalie Anthony Orlando, who splits time with fellow frosh Robert Porter in net. “When things are going (as well as they were Saturday night), all you can do is pay attention to how nuts the bench is going.”

With 27 saves, Orlando was a big part of the upset, which came on the heels of Porter’s shutout of Lynnfield earlier in the week. Those wins have helped the Sachems (4-3 overall, 2-3 league) rebound from a 6-1 loss to Newburyport.

“We knew we were the best team in the league and we just had to prove it to them,” Pentucket’s Ben Klosowski said of yesterday’s showing. “We were getting the puck deep and pressing the net.”

Wasting no time attacking North Reading (6-1-1, 3-1-1), PG took the lead for good at the 2:40 mark on a score by Georgetown sophomore Cam Wolbach. A mere 68 seconds later, Klosowski scored the first of his two goals.

“I think when you have success early in the year, it’s a dangerous thing — especially for some high school kids,” North Reading coach John Giulotti said of the setback. “They start looking at the stats and they start looking at the standings, and they think that’s real.

“What they need to understand is that hockey is a very emotional sport and you have to come out every day. Today, Pentucket played a fantastic game, and they really took it to us. You take the goods and the bads and put them in the rear-view mirror and move on.”
