Berwick plays flat and Brewster makes them pay

Senior Cole Moore paces Brewster to their first win of the year with two goals

DOVER, NH –The Bulldogs got on the board early last night on a Tanner Derby (Newburyport, MA) goal from the point, but Brewster responded immediately with two goals of their own. Berwick came out with a better effort in the second, controlling much of the play and scoring two goals. The first came when Cole Shelgren (Dover, NH) head-manned the puck to Spencer Aubin (Dover, NH). Aubin cut wide left into the Brewster zone and wrapped a pass behind his back to a streaking Jackson Sidford (Newburyport, MA) for a backdoor one-timer. It was Sidford’s first of the season and hopefully a sign of good things to come. Greg Stohrer (Barrington, NH) finished on a feed from Chris Dowd (Danville, NH) to put an exclamation mark on the period for Berwick.
In the third, Cole Moore struck for his second of the game and despite a late powerplay for Berwick, it was tied at three after regulation. Overtime was all Berwick as they hit the post and looked like the better team. However, a deadly neutral zone turnover resulted in a Grade A chance for Brewster, and Niclas Rosenberg made the Bulldogs pay with a wrister just over sophomore Alex Ramsay’s (Yarmouth, ME) left pad. Ramsay played strong in his first start, turning aside 24 of 28 Brewster shots. After a strong, opening day win, the Bulldogs are on a major slide and look to right the ship this weekend at the Brooks-Pingree tournament.
