Martha's Vineyard 1, Plymouth 1 (December 20, 2014)
Another new league game against a new league team, and another dramatic tie. Martha's Vineyard battled the combined schools of Plymouth North and Plymouth South to a 1-1 draw on Saturday, and the Vineyarders head into the Holiday break 1-0-2 on the young season.
Sophomore goaltender Julia Bettencourt followed junior counterpart Jackie Hegarty's strong performance against Pembroke with a gem of her own. Bettencourt stopped 20 Plymouth shots and kept the Vineyard in the game to the end.
Like Wednesday's contest, this one was scoreless after two periods of play. Plymouth broke the deadlock just over a minute into the final stanza, but Martha's Vineyard would not be deterred. Sydney Davies and Aubrey Ashmun combined to get the puck into the Plymouth zone on the ensuing face-off, and sophomore defenseman Kylie Hatt roofed a wrister over the Plymouth net minder just 13-seconds after the Plymouth tally.
The two teams battled to a draw the rest of the way, and Martha's Vineyard felt relieved to get the point in league standings. After the break things don't get any easier for the Vineyard. The team returns to action at home against the aforementioned Pembroke squad, and then travels for two more tough league contests at DY and Plymouth.
The varsity team competed in four scrimmages on December 6 & 7 in efforts of getting ready for their home opener Saturday, December 13. The MV Times recapped the scrimmages and wrote a preview of the 2014-2015 season. The team is counting down the hours to Saturday's game against Brookline at 5pm.
The Boston Bruins graciously donated a game sweater signed by the 2014 team. The jersey will be raffled off at the varsity's last home game (February 19). Tickets for the raffle are $10 each, and they are available from any hockey player.
The 2014-2015 Varsity Roster is set. Congratulations to Natalija Lakis and Saige Araujo for being named the newest members of the Martha's Vineyard varsity hockey team. This year's roster consists of 16 players, and they will undoubtedly represent the school and the community with Respect as they compete in 20 regular season varsity contests. The season opens at home on December 13 at 5:oopm.
