Pentucket's season comes to end in ugly loss

(Continued)

Pentucket gained the lead when play resumed in the third period, when Orlando dumped it in under O’Leary’s skates, assisted by Pingree. But the Crusaders kept pace when Dylan Maida scored 28 seconds later.

Bishop Fenwick got the go ahead goal at the nine and a half mark when Thibodeau brushed the puck past Bomba’s left skate, assisted by Nick Coccolutto. The Crusaders added a little insurance three minutes later when Coccoluto hit the mark, assisted by Thibodeau. A little more than 30 seconds after that, Bishop Fenwick added goal number five, courtesy of Nick Finan and Thibodeau.

The end of the game was marred by another quick altercation that saw yet another Crusader tossed out as the season came to a tarnished close for both teams.

“It’s been a tough season,” said Crusaders coach Dan Lynch. “That might explain some of the roughness and the chippiness of that game. It’s been a bit frustrating at times.”

The game’s chaos also undermined what was the last varsity contest for the Pentucket seniors, some of whom have been playing since they were freshmen.

“I just want to take my hat off to my seniors,” said Burns, once he had a moment to collect himself. “From Sam Bomba to Tommy Pingree to Ian Mitchell. I just can’t say enough about them, and I just want to wish them all the best in the future.”
