Youth Hockey

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Hockey Association traveled to Smead Arena in Springfield, Mass., on Sunday, and battled to a 3-3 tie with a traditionally physical and gritty Ludlow team.

Only goalie Senji Kimura seemed awake for the Hawks through the first period, but he was fortunately up to the task. Facing an incredible 48 shots on goal over all three periods, Kimura only allowed one goal each period.

When the Brattleboro skaters woke up in the second period, Ethan Ahnert and Alex Fortier scored all three of the Hawks' goals within three minutes. Defenseman Colby Robinson assisted one of the goals, and forwards Andrew Hill and Jaidyn Denny had great second halves, including taking several shots on goal.

Forward Dominic McKay primarily contributed defensively, winning the puck to take some of the pressure off Kimura and the defense. Robinson and the other Brattleboro defensemen, Malika Anthes and Devin Wilkin, woke up with the offense and also had strong second halves.
