The hockey season is off to a roaring start. Captained by Christian O’Neill, Jonny Folsom, and Sam Hesler, the team looks to build on an impressive season last season. Sophomore standout Connor Hopkins takes the reigns in net this year. Along with the team captains, Evan Daddario, Peter O’Connell, John Copeland, Max Fields, Noah Traylor, and Kyle Maxwell will look to provide points up front, while Senior Mike Armstrong will be anchoring the defensemen. The team’s journey began November 30th versus Berwick Academy in Maine. The squad opened strong and defeated Berwick 6-2 to jump start their campaign. Following a quick turnaround, the team looked to build on their strong start in an extremely important ISL-opener at Nobles. On a nice December Saturday afternoon, the boys came out flying for the league opener. After a high-paced start, the squad jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead after Mike Armstrong put one home on the power-play. Then, with only seconds remaining in the second period, Evan Daddario found newcomer Andrew Holland, who calmly tucked it away to put the boys of winter up 2. On a solo break, captain Christian O’Neill beautifully scored a short-handed goal to make it 3-0. Following two quick goals by Nobles, Christian O’Neill buried the fourth of the game to give the team a win in their league opener. All of Belmont Hill wishes good luck to Varsity hockey this season.
