St. Sebastian's and Nobles both came out victorious over Williston and Berkshire, respectively, at the first day of the St. Sebastian’s/Nobles New Year’s Showcase at the Henry T. Lane Rink.
The first game was lopsided with St. Sebastian’s jumping out to a 6-0 lead en route to an 8-3 win over Williston Northampton. It was well attended as about a half dozen NHL scouts were in the building to watch St. Sebastian’s junior defenseman Jayden Struble. It was a quiet day on the score sheet for the Cumberland, R.I., native, but he played well for the majority of the game.
Northeastern commit Jack Hughes scored twice while Thomas Messineo, Liam Connors, Tommy Lyons, James Davenport, Brendan Dumas and Declan Maguire added tallies.
In the second tilt, Nobles fell behind, 1-0, but scored the last three goals of the game to defeat Berkshire, 3-1. Will Zink, John Murray and Jack Cronin scored for Nobles. The result snapped a three-game losing streak for Brian Day’s club.
