Scarlet Knights fall to Boston Latin in North semis

LOWELL — While the defense showed up Tuesday night at the Tsongas Center, the North Andover offense was missing in action.

Minus one-third of its top skating line, eighth-seeded North Andover managed only five shots on goal in its Division 2 North Regional semifinal Tuesday night as No. 13 seed Boston Latin took advantage of the power outage to claim a 2-0 victory Tuesday night.

“We picked a bad night not to play our best game,” North Andover coach Peter Marfione said. “We were missing (senior captain) Tyler (Buonopane) tonight, but Boston Latin played better than us. They took away our offense. They limited us to under 10 shots, and you’re not going to win a game with that.

Buonopane, who is second on the team with 18 goals and 37 points, suffered a concussion in a 5-2 win over top-seeded Danvers in Friday’s quarterfinal.

North Andover (14-8-2) defeated Boston Latin (13-7-3) twice in the regular season by a combined 8-1 and had piled up 12 goals in two regional victories. But the Knights managed only one shot on net the first 12 minutes. Two of their five shots were in an eight-second span late in the first period

“We just didn’t seem to get anything going. We’ve scored (12) goals the last two games, but we just didn’t get anything going tonight. We just didn’t have it offensively.”

Even though most of the match was spent in the Knight defensive zone, Jack Walsh kept the Wolfpack in check most of the match, surviving an early first-period penalty. The junior gave up a goal midway through the second on a Nick O’Connell one-timer blasted from between the circles.

But that was the only shot that got past Walsh, as the Wolfpack added an empty-netter with 33.6 seconds remaining.

Maintaining form, the Knights were held to only one shot in the crucial third period, while Latin piled up 11 more, including three on another power-play chance that Walsh thwarted.

“It was frustrating but not as frustrating as I thought it would be,” said Walsh, who stopped 23 shots. “It wasn’t anything the team was doing. I know the effort was there. It was just that the puck wasn’t bounding our way, but that’s the stuff you have to deal with.”

Andover eliminated from Super 8

CHELMSFORD  — Andover had already made history, earning its first Super 8 berth in program history in a year that could have been derailed by controversy. 
Unfortunately for the Golden Warriors, there would be no storybook end to that run.
After a few Andover chances in overtime were stopped, St. John’s Shrewsbury raced up ice and scored to take a 3-2 victory in the Super 8 loser’s bracket. 
“I think the kids left it all on the ice,” said Golden Warriors coach Chris Kuchar. “We had our chances down the stretch. We had a few really good chances in overtime. It’s so tough to end this way.”
The loss eliminates No. 5 Andover (13-7-2) from the Super 8. No. 8 St. John’s Shrewsbury continues in the loser’s bracket, to take on the loser of Monday’s game between No. 2 Boston College High School and No. 3 St. John’s Prep. 
“A lot of the kids are hurting right now,” said Kuchar. “We’re all hurting. But with the things that we have gone through this year, and I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
Each time the Golden Warriors took the lead, Shrewsbury was quick to respond. 
Andover went up 1-0 midway through the first quarter. Senior Caeden Dillman took a pass inside the blueline and blasted the puck over the goalie’s blocker for his eighth goal of the year. But just over three minutes later, the Pioneers scored to tie the game.
Michael Reilly gave the Warriors the lead back 1:33 into the third, skating out in front and flipping a shot into the goal. But this time, Shrewsbury needed just 24 seconds to tie it up again.
“They’re a good hockey team,” said Kuchar. “We knew we were facing a tough team. They made it hard for us to get the puck in the net. We had a few chances in the 4 on 4 (overtime), and they got their sticks in the way.”
Andover had a few golden chances in overtime. But one shot skidded just wide of the post, and two others were saved to keep Shrewsbury alive. Then, with 1:30 left in the first OT, the Pioneers scored the winner.
Golden Warriors goalie Cole Chingris once again starred. He finished with 26 saves, his two best coming in overtime. First, he sprawled out to knock a puck away with his left leg. Then, a minute later, he made a huge glove save in traffic.
“I can’t say enough about how our goalie played,” said Kuchar. “He played his heart out. Cole gave us the opportunity to be here, and he played his heart out until the end.
“We would have loved to move on. But with how this year played out, my kids showed amazing character and resilience. They just kept on fighting. It shows not just their hockey ability, but their character as men. I couldn’t be prouder of them.”
