TYNGSBORO, Mass. — Despite blowing a 2-0 lead, the Islanders Hockey Club came through in the end for a 4-2 win over the South Shore Kings in a USPHL NCDC game at Skate 3 Arena on Wednesday afternoon.
Patrick Somerville scored the game-winning goal 2:33 into the third period before Kyle Lightfoot put the game on ice with an empty-net tally in the game’s final minutes. Will Winship and Kaleb Nelson gave the Islanders a 2-0 lead. Chikara Hanzawa and Matteo Luisetti scored for the South Shore Kings.
The game was played in front of a handful of NHL scouts and Division 3 college coaches.

There were quite a few prospects for the Division 3 college coaches to watch.
