BOURNE, Mass. — After falling down 1-0, Sandwich scored three unanswered goals to defeat Barnstable 3-1 on Thursday afternoon at Gallo Arena.
Seniors Tim Clark and Rob Cardillo and sophomore Colin McIver scored for Sandwich while senior Garrett Dunne found the back of the net for Barnstable. Freshman Josh Itri had two assists and sophomore Mitchell Norkevicius picked up the win in net for the Blue Knights.
Sandwich, typically the underdog in games against Cape & Islands League rival Barnstable, clearly was the better team at five-on-five, but there was quite a bit of special teams play in the game. Barnstable’s only goal came on the man advantage, but Sandwich’s penalty kill did the trick later in the game. The Blue Knights killed off a prolonged two-man advantage at the start of the third period and then fended off another Red Raiders’ power-play attempt later in the stanza.
