Avin Rodovsky (goal, assist), Cam Waldman (goal), Charlie Grenier (goal), Hogan Sedky (assist), and Crew Monaco (assist) all joined the fun, as did Leo Burdge who played well in net for the Headers.

BOYS HOCKEY

St. John’s Prep 6
St. John’s High 1

It began with a snipe from Caleb White in the opening period, and it was all St. John’s Prep from there on Wednesday, Jan. 17. The Eagles celebrated six times en route to a 6-1 thrashing of St. John’s High.

Brendan Powers and Johnny Tighe added to the scoring to put Prep ahead, 3-0. The opposition scored a much-needed goal, but the Eagles responded with three more in the third period to put a lid on St. John’s High. Those goals came from Powers, White, and Tighe.
