BROCKTON, Mass. – Stoughton senior Jon Lessa and sophomore Sean Doherty each recorded a pair of points and sophomore goalie AJ Scott had an impressive performance in net as the Black Knights beat Attleboro, 2-1.

Less than a month after the Bombardiers beat the Black Knights in a league game by the same score, Stoughton flipped the script this time around to get two points in a non-league clash.

Scott made 34 saves, including 16 in the first period, while Lessa and Doherty took turns setting each other up for go-ahead goals for the Black Knights.

“And Attleboro has a great offense, the first time we played them we couldn’t stop their chances,” said Stoughton head coach Dan Mark on Scott’s play. “They have some good forwards. I thought overall we did a pretty good job. We gave up 35 shots but it went progressively down each period.”

The Bombardiers struck first in the team’s meeting back in January, building a 2-0 lead in the second period.

This time around, Stoughton took the lead, not wasting much time on the game’s first power play. An interference call put the Black Knights on a man advantage opportunity and just over a minute in, Stoughton took the lead.

Lessa, a captain, raced past a defenseman and dropped a shot on target as he wrapped behind the net. The puck popped free right in the middle and Doherty pounced, firing one in from close range to put Stoughton up 1-0.

But less than a minute after taking the lead, the Black Knights took a penalty. Attleboro needed just 10 seconds to tie the contest.

Attleboro won the face off, senior PJ Elliott ripped a shot from the slot that Scott was able to stop but sophomore Cam Littig came flying around the back of the net and tucked the rebound chance in from a tight angle to make it 1-1.

The Bombardiers nearly carried that momentum into the second period with a big chance early on but Scott stood tall for Stoughton. Just over a minute into the middle frame, the Bombardiers won an offensive face off and the puck ended on the stick of Littig for a close range bid but Scott got just enough to turn it aside.

The save turned out to be a big one as the Knights regained the lead just a minute later.

This time Doherty played the role of helper and Lessa took on the role of finisher. The sophomore staked past a defenseman towards the boards behind he net, but slammed on the breaks, turned back and fired a centering pass for a one timer that Lessa roofed to put Stoughton up 2-1.

“They played well today,” Mark said of his first line of Lessa, Doherty and junior Brendan Campbell. “They created a lot of good opportunities. I thought their goalie [Evan Andrews] played really well too. That breakaway save was huge.”

The breakaway Mark was referring to came at the midway point of the second period. After the Bombardiers hit the crossbar on a shot from Jake Parker, the two teams traded penalties.

That gave Attleboro a man advantage opportunity but it was Stoughton that came away with the best scoring chance.

Campbell broke free and was able to go in alone on goal but Andrews stood his ground and denied the bid with a leg save.

Scott had one his best sequences near the end of the middle period. Both Parker (20 goals on the season) and Littig had shots through traffic that somehow Scott was able to get with a piece of his glove (on Littig’s shot) and then blocked the second with his chest.

Neither side found the back of the net in the third period, both Scott and Andrews making big saves in the frame.

First it was Scott, as Parker raced around a defenseman and fired a tight angle shot but the sophomore made the stop with his paddle.

While on a power play, Lessa found Doherty on the doorstep but Andrews was quick to react to deny the sophomore. A minute later, Doherty and Lessa used a quick give and go in the attacking area with the latter releasing a close range shot but it sailed wide.

Attleboro had its best chance to level the game with 30 seconds to play, skating six players with the goalie pulled. Elliott ended up with the puck in the slot for an open shot but Scott made the point blank save to preserve the win.

“We’re not used to being in that position so sometimes the kids get nervous but I thought they kept their composure pretty good there at the end,” Mark said.

Attleboro finished with a 35-20 advantage in shots on goal.

“I thought we played well to the point where we had a lot of offense zone times,” said Attleboro head coach Mark Homer said. “It’s one of those frustrating games where you feel like you outplayed the other team but the other team’s goalie makes all the stops. Kudos to [Scott]. Similar to the OA game, when it was 1-0, OA didn’t get to the hard parts of the ice in front of the net and we did the same thing tonight. We had chances but we didn’t take advantage of them.”

Stoughton hockey (4-11-2 overall, 1-7 Hockomock) hosts Bellingham on Tuesday while Attleboro (6-11-1, 2-7) will host Shawsheen on Wednesday. The Bombardiers need two points against either Shawsheen or Dighton-Rehoboth to qualify for the state tournament.

Ice Hockey: Ten Players to Watch in 2016-2017

Hockomock Hockey Players to Watch

By HockomockSports.com Staff

Mike Carresi, Foxboro

Foxboro had a down year a season ago but new head coach Mark Cedorchuk brings back the team’s leading scorer from a year ago in senior captain Mike Carresi. Carresi is a creative forward that creates a lot of opportunities for teammates. He’s a strong skater that can drive into the zone, allowing teammates to set up. His ability to set teammates up was apparent a season ago when Carresi led the Warriors with 10 assists. He was second on the team with seven goals a season ago, so he’s also able to finish in and around the net. He finished with a team-high 17 points for Foxboro. The Warriors have a lot of offensive talent back this year, including leading scorer Pete Smith, so expect Carresi’s playmaking ability to factor in again this year.

Collin Cooke, King Philip

The junior forward returns after a strong sophomore season in which he led the Warriors in scoring with 11 goals and 15 assists, for a team-high 26 points. With the top three scorers back from last year’s team, which qualified for the Div. 1 state tournament, Cooke and KP will have high expectations for the upcoming winter. A quick, talented skater, Cooke gives the Warriors speed through the middle of the ice and he has the stick handling ability to create scoring opportunities out of nothing. As Cooke continues to develop the physical side of his game and his two-way play, he gives KP a major weapon on the first line to cause even the top defenses problems. Cooke could benefit from more continuity in the program as well, with second-year coach Paul Carlow returning to build on the system he implemented last year.

PJ Elliott, Attleboro

The senior forward is one of the main attacking players that returns for the Bombardiers and will enter his final season with a new coach, Mark Homer, and a new home rink, New England Sports Village. With only 15 players and two goalies on this year’s roster, Elliott will see plenty of ice time to try and show off his strong stick handling ability and good finishing touch that helped him finish with 17 goals and 17 assists last season. It will be tough to keep pushing up and down the ice without the depth of some of the other Hock teams, but Elliott and the Bombardiers are accustomed to that and will be hoping to mark their first season in their new home with a return to the playoffs after narrowly missing out in the final game last year.

Jon Lessa, Stoughton

One of the biggest question marks for the Black Knights for the 2016-2017 is who will replace the scoring production of the graduated Mark Sheehan. Stoughton has a good candidate in senior forward Jon Lessa. A year ago, the senior was second on the team in scoring with nine goals while finishing third overall in points with 15. He possesses a quick right-handed shot that doesn’t require much time or space to get off. He has some height that gives him an advantage when carrying the puck or fighting down low on the boards. The Black Knights don’t have as much depth as some of the other Hockomock teams so Lessa, who has already scored this season, should see plenty of ice time.

Jackson Maffeo, Canton

Canton has had a lot skilled players come through the program in recent years but Jackson Maffeo, a defenseman, stands out among the best. The 2015-2016 HockomockSports.com Player of the Year has not only been one of the best at his position over the past two years, but one of the best players period. We’ve seen how good Maffeo’s puck skills are over the past two years and we expect more of the same again this year. He has a terrific shot – one of the best in the area and adds a lot to the offense with his ability to move the puck, finishing with two goals and 12 assists last year. Defensively, there isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said in the past. He’s one of the most physical players in the league and does it all within the rules. His hockey intelligence is superior to most in the league. The Bulldogs have their top four defenseman from last season so that should be a strong suit this year.

Jeremy Miller, Franklin

The junior forward is coming off a season in which he led the Panthers in scoring as a sophomore, helping Franklin complete an unbeaten league campaign, clinching another Kelley-Rex division title, and also making history as part of the Div. 1 state championship team. He had a team-high 15 goals and 20 points last season. This winter, Miller comes in with even more expectations, as Franklin continues to make itself a program to watch statewide and building its resume with tough non-league games, such as a rematch of the state title game against St. Mary’s. Miller will have a lot of help up front as the Panthers return a core of forwards, including Adam Assad and state title game hero Luke Downie, but Miller remains the lynchpin with his combination of speed and strength. He has no problem battling for a puck against the boards and can break free with his skating ability in open ice.

Nick Terry, Taunton

The senior defenseman, who is in his fifth season on the varsity roster, has been a three-time Hockomock all-star and was a backbone on the Tigers last winter as the team returned to the postseason after a long wait. The expectations will be even higher this season, as Taunton looks to build on that success and consolidate itself into a program that can reach the playoffs every season. While offense stole the headlines last winter, Terry was a mainstay on the Tigers top defensive pairing and gave Taunton a physical edge in its defensive zone. Terry had seven goals and nine assists for 16 points last year. After getting a taste of the tournament last season, the Tigers will be hungry to get back there and the ultra-experience Terry will be one of the players counted on to lead them during the league campaign.

Joe Olsen, Mansfield

After spending last season in juniors, senior forward Joe Olsen is back with the Hornets for this winter and is ready to pick up where he left off after a strong sophomore season. Olsen will be on the first line with classmates Matt Farragher and Chad Piotti and will be a pivotal returning player for first-year head coach Mike Balzerini, as Mansfield looks to find more scoring punch. Olsen is a strong skater with solid skills and he can be a critical piece for the Hornets, who are looking to get back in the Kelley-Rex title race after a difficult 2015-16 campaign. With the experience that he picked up during his time in juniors, Olsen should be able to mesh well on the top line and create opportunities for his teammates.

Ryan Warren, North Attleboro

There have been a lot of great goalies in the Hockomock League in recent years and North Attleboro’s Ryan Warren added his name to the list after a stellar freshman season. Now a sophomore, the reigning HockomockSports.com Underclassman of the Year is looking to build upon last year. He recorded 413 saves last season and had four shutouts. He also had a .918 save percentage and a 1.85 goals against average for the Rocketeers. North Attleboro returns a big group of experienced players this year, including a strong group of defensemen. Warren stands tall in net and moves side to side very well. He showed last year that he positions himself well and doesn’t allow too many second chances — and when he does, he does well to keep the puck away from dangerous areas. Warren could elevate to an elite level during this season.

Hockey: 2016-2017 Davenport Division Preview

2016-2017 Davenport Hockey Preview

2016-2017 Davenport Hockey Preview

Canton

2015-2016 Record: 16-3-4
2015-2016 Finish: Reached D2 South Semifinal
Coach: Brian Shuman

Throughout the years, Canton has had plenty of skillful goal scorers that pace the offense. Heading into this season, it’s still to be determined who will emerge as Canton’s top offensive threat.

The Bulldogs lost a lot of scoring from a year ago, including the team’s top for scorers – Matt Lazaro, Jim Jenkins, Bobby Mullaney and Seamus Pecararo – who combined for over 100 points. However, the Bulldogs have one of the strongest programs from top to bottom in the area and it will be the next man up. Senior Tommy Kilduff (nine points) and junior Jack Goyetch (12 poitns) are likely candidates to be top offensive weapons on their respective lines.

One area that Canton is rock solid is defense. The Bulldogs are bringing back their top four defensemen from a year ago, including HockomockSports.com Player of the Year Jackson Maffeo and HockomockSports Third Team selection CJ Martin. Those two will be joined once again by DJ Trerice and Brad Murphy, giving Canton a solid foundation to work off of.

Juniors Quinn Gibbs and Niko Donovan are set to compete for the starting job vacated by Justin Slocum.

“Overall, we expect to be a scrappy team with no real superstars, but a good balance of gritty forwards, experienced defensemen, and deep goaltending hopefully will allow us to compete with the top teams in the Hockomock League,” Canton head coach Brian Shuman said.

Foxboro

2015-2016 Record: 5-14-1
2015-2016 Finish: Missed playoffs
Coach: Mark Cedorchuk

With a strong blend of experienced players and young talent, first year head coach Mark Cedorchuk is hopeful the Warriors can find their way back to the state tournament.

The Warriors return both of their top scoring threats from a year ago with seniors Mike Carresi (seven goals, 10 assists) and Peter Smith (10 goals, six assists) both back to pace the offense, as well as classmate Paul Vey. Junior Aidan Sullivan is back after an impressive sophomore season (eight points) and will be a big presence along the blue line along with classmate Taylor Sharfman and senior John Brolin.

It will be a familiar face between the pipes for Foxboro again this season as John Cronin returns as one of the top netminders in the league.

“With this core group of excellent upperclassman and talented underclassman we’re very excited about our season this year,” Cedorchuk said. “With the roster we have we’re looking to compete at a very high level and can’t wait for our season to start.”

North Attleboro

2015-2016 Record: 13-5-4
2015-2016 Finish: Reached D2 South Quarterfinals
Coach: Steve Snizek

Between a strong returning core of players and a switch to the Davenport division, 2016-2017 could be the year the Rocketeers make a serious run at a league title. Standing in the way will be Canton.

Five of the Rocketeers’ leading scorers are back this year, including top goal scorer Erik Clements (13 goals, 10 assists) and top assist man and HockomockSports.com First Team selection Zach McGowan (12 goals, 12 assists). Juniors Jason McNeany (eight goals, 12 assists), Andrew Wissler (nine goals, nine assists) and Hunter Sarro (nine goals, four assists) are all back as well with varsity experience. The depth in North Attleboro’s attack will make them tough to deal with.

Defensively, it all starts with sophomore goalie Ryan Warren, who had a terrific freshman year and was named HockomockSports.com Underclassman of the Year. In front of him, senior Vincent Zammiello – a HockomockSports.com Third Team selection – and sophomore Brendan McHugh will anchor the defensive unit.

“In order for our team to be successful, we need to stick to our style of hockey and be well positioned and physical,” North Attleboro head coach Steve Snizek said. “We also need to take advantage of power power play opportunities while staying disciplined.”

Stoughton

2015-2016 Record: 6-12-3
2015-2016 Finish: Missed playoffs
Coach: Dan Mark

Stoughton returns a good handful of experienced varsity players from last year’s squad, but will still be one of the youngest teams in the league.

Senior forwards Jon Lessa and Nick Hardy are two of the more experienced players on the team. Lessa was second in scoring a year ago with nine goals and also added six assists while Hardy chipped in with seven points. Sophomore Sean Doherty will likely see a lot of ice time this season after an impressive freshman season. Doherty had seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points – second most on the team.

On defense, senior Cam Doherty will anchor the blue line while sophomore Josh Hough will look to build upon a strong rookie campaign a year ago. Sophomore AJ Scott is back in goal this season after making over 600 saves as a freshman. Having a year of varsity experience will be vital for a handful of Stoughton’s returning players.

“We are young team that will improve as the season goes on,” Stoughton head coach Dan Mark said.
