EHL: Express Sweep Showcase Weekend

Walpole, MA  - This past weekend the Walpole Express and Rodman Arena hosted the first showcase of the year for the Eastern Hockey League.  The first showcase was a promising one for the EHL as over 75 NCAA scouts from over 50 schools attended the 2 day event.

In game one, the Express had trouble finding the back of the net but were able to come away with a 3-2 win over the New York Bobcats.  Malachi Albrecht stopped 17 of 19 shots and the Express compiled 66 shots of their own during the game but were stonewalled by the Bobcats goaltender throughout the game.  

“I thought we played a really good game but just were unable to find the back of the net,” said Coach Lounsbury.  “Their goalie played fantastic but we found a way to win by continuing to push the pace and play the game the way it should be played.  If we stick to our guns we can be pretty tough to play against.”

In game two, the Express came out of the gates hot and never looked back.  Eric Wright (San Diego, CA) led the way with 3 goals while Ryan Campbell (Scituate, MA) led the team with 3 assists as the Express erupted for a 7-1 victory over the CT Oilers.  Max flynn was solid between the pipes for the win.

“It was great to see our team come out the way they did.  The focus and intensity were there throughout the entire game,” said Lounsbury.   “We are starting to find a little bit of a rhythm moving forward and hope to continue climbing in the standings.”

The Express head to Breakaway Ice Center on Wednesday for a first place match up agains the Boston Jr Rangers at 1:00 PM.
