BURLINGTON — The Vermont boys prevailed while the girls lost a closely contested game during Make-A-Wish Hockey Classic All-Star action at Gutterson Fieldhouse.
It was no surprise that BFA-St. Albans multi-sport standout Colby Brouillette emerged as the leading scorer in the boys game. He found the back of the net twice and added one assist to pace his team to a 6-1 victory. Former Bobwhites teammate Cooper Cioffi also scored to help fuel the blowout. Stowe three-sport standout Jace Boerger added a single goal in the victory along with Burlington’s Elliot Maher and Mount Mansfield’s Patrick Burke. Sam Foster (seven saves) and Logan Cody (six saves) split time in goal for Vermont.
The Green Mountain State earned its third straight victory over New Hampshire, marking Vermont’s first three-game winning streak in the annual series. Brouillette’s high-powered effort also helped Vermont match its largest margin of victory, tying the feat from a 7-2 victory in 1999.
Jameson Goodridge scored the lone goal for New Hampshire, keeping things close in the second period before Vermont pulled away for good. Goalies Matthew Strickland (nine saves) and Dakota Robinson (six saves) joined forces in goal during the loss.
On the girls’ side, the Granite State built an early three-goal lead and held on for a 4-2 victory. Olivia Miller-Johnson and Presley Boyce scored for Vermont, with Lizzie Hill adding an assist. Teammates Amy Howard (15 saves) and Ally Peeters (five saves) were solid in goal.
Carissa Towlson scored in the final minute to cap her hat trick for New Hampshire. Towlson set up a goal by Maggie Lee, who also contributed two assists. Izzy Day (eight saves) and Hilda Barrioz (seven saves) combined efforts in goal for New Hampshire, which holds a 10-9-3 lead in the all-time series.
