Milton 6, BFA St. Albans 18
Evan as the rain and snow fell, the scores kept piling up. Unfortunately the scoring favored BFA, which led the entire game.
Cooper Cioffi paced the scoring with six goals for the Bobwhites, who had nine different scorers. Foster Horton turned away 13 shots. Sophomore Owen Perry continued his hot streak with another three goal game. Jackson Ehler had a goal and an assist while having a fairly good day at the face off. Casey Langlois and Ethan Swan each had a goal. Chris Lefebvre set a new career high, with 16 saves. The boys won’t have to look for their next opponent as they play BFA again this Monday.
Milton 6, BFA St. Albans 17
Noah Vincelette scored four of his six goals in the first half and BFA-St. Albans dominated Milton in the second half, earning their second win over the Yellowjackets in four days, 17-6 Monday afternoon at the Collins-Perley Sports Center.
Milton senior Owen Perry extended his streak of hat tricks or better to five straight games in as many contests this spring.
Vincelette put the Bobwhites in front less than three minutes in, then netted three more in the second quarter to help BFA (3-1) open an 8-4 lead. Milton stayed close through the break thanks in part to goalie Chris Lefebvre’s four saves in the second quarter, and remained within reach going into the last period with Perry scoring his fourth and Ethan Swan netting his second while BFA’s Keegan Streeter, Nate Loughlin and Vincelette countered for St. Albans.
But the Yellowjackets, who lost 18-7 to BFA at home on Friday with snow falling and the temperature in the mid 30s, were outscored 6-0 in the final 12 minutes to lose to the Division I Bobwhites by the same margin under a bright sun in the upper 60s Monday.
Vincelette led all scorers with six goals and two assists. Griffin Knapp scored four — three of them in the first half — with an assist and Streeter added two goals and an assist. Nick Clark, Brook Hodgeman, Mike Adams, and Loughlin netted a goal each, with Luke Zemianek and Mason Yandow earning assists.
For D-II Milton, Perry scored four times and has 17 goals in five games. Swan scored twice, Colby Bergeron had two assists, and Jackson Ehler set up one goal.
Lefebvre finished with 12 saves in the Yellowjacket goal, and Foster Horton had seven saves for the Bobwhites.
In the frosty meeting Friday (April 19) between the neighboring schools, the Bobwhites raced to a 10-1 halftime lead on the way to an 18-7 win.
Cioffi, Knapp and Vincelette combined for 11 BFA goals and six assists, with a half dozen others scoring at least one. Foster Horton made four saves in goal for BFA.
Milton’s Perry netted three goals for his fourth straight hat trick. Ehler picked up two goals and an assist, while Casey Langlois and Swan scored once each.
