EWHC: Express Go 1-1-1 in Second League Showcase

Walpole, MA  - The Walpole Express headed up to Hudson, NH to participate in the second EWHC showcase. In the opening game of the showcase, the Express faced off against the Rice Prep Knights. The Knights got on the board first to make it 1-0 at the end of the first. With Hayley Parrish out due to a hand injury, Ally Jurman, a typical defenseman, moved up to forward. Jurman made the transition to forward smoothly when she got her first goal of the season early in the second period from Maddie Scheinberg and Megan Gates. The Knights responded back making it a 2-1 game. Cassi Ronan gave the Express a 3-2 lead at the end of the second when she scored two goals. Cassidy McNeeley and Sam Molind had the helpers on Ronan’s first goal and Kellie Popkin had the assist for her second goal. The Express would go on to score two more goals in the third. Cassidy McNeely made it a 4-2 game, with assists from Jurman and Gates. Alyssa Murphy then ended the scoring making it a 5-2 win. Hannah Murphy with the assist on her goal.

The Express had a quick turn around as they played their second game of the showcase just a couple hours later against powerhouse Stanstead College from Quebec, Canada. Stanstead defeated the Express 7-0.

The Express ended the showcase in a tie against Rothesay Netherwood School, another team from Canada. Sam Molind started the scoring for the Express. Goaltender Lily O’Neil had the assist on Molind’s goal. RNS went on to score 2 goals giving them the upper-hand, but Hannah Murphy then got the unassisted equalizer.

Express Suffer Tough Loss TO Cyclones

The Express hosted the Cyclones for their last game before break. The Cyclones scored first on the power play and then scored again, even strength. Cassi Ronan would kick off what would be an impressive game for her when she made it 2-1 to end the first off a pass from D-partner, Sami Barletta. The Cyclones went on to make it a 3-1 game but Cassi Ronan responded again from Cassidy McNeeley and Hannah Murphy, making it a 3-2 game. Late into the third period the Express found the back of the net to tie the game, however the goal was waved off because the net was off the pegs. In a last ditch effort, the Express pulled goaltender Lily O’Neil to get the equalizer but Cyclones scored an empty netter giving them a 4-2 win.
