MIDDLETON, Mass. — St. John’s Prep had to rally from a couple of one-goal deficits and overcome a sluggish start to defeat Catholic Conference rival Malden Catholic on Monday afternoon at the Essex Sports Center.
St. John’s Prep improved to 11-2 with a 6-3 win over Malden Catholic. It was a bounceback game for SJP after losing 2-0 to Xaverian in its last outing. MC fell to 5-6 with the loss. The game was played in front of a good crowd of students, family, fans and a couple of college coaches.
Sophomore left wing Seamus Condon staked Malden Catholic to a 1-0 lead in the first period while the Lancers were skating on a five-on-three power play. He redirected a shot from the point that hit a few sticks on the way to the net. Evan Foskett and Joseph Gaffney had the assists.
