Ryan Gaulin scores his first since returning from injury, but Berwick falls 2-1

DOVER, NH –Despite some strong efforts in his first six games back from a fall knee injury, Ryan Gaulin could not find the net. That all changed with two minutes remaining in the opening period tonight. On the man advantage, Gaulin (Kingston, NH) took feeds from Greg Stohrer (Barrington, NH) and Tanner Derby (Newburyport, MA) before going shelf from a nearly impossible angle. Kents Hill changed the momentum moments later on a questionable hit against Berwick senior Jackson Sidford. Shortly after, Kents Hill came down on Rafe Gaughan and scored to tie the game with forty seconds remaining in the first.
The second period was all Berwick, including two breakaways, but the Bulldogs could not solve goaltender Jaxon Friedman. Friedman made twenty-five saves over the final two periods to preserve a 2-1 lead, which Kents Hill earned halfway through the second. The Bulldogs will regroup this weekend and look to come out strong next week vs. St. Paul’s and Hebron.
