Game #4 – Reading 3 Masco 1
The Boys JV Hockey team lost to a very strong Reading JV team Saturday afternoon at Burbank Arena. Reading has one of the historically stronger programs in Massachusetts and the JV Boys had to really elevate their pace of play to stay in this one. Thanks to some terrific goal tending, this was still a tight 2-1 game late but Reading added an insurance goal to put the game away. A number of turnovers in the neutral zone throughout the contest allowed Reading to carry the play more than they probably should have. The JV Boys managed to offset some of that with some decent pressure during the second half of the game. The schedule continues Tuesday with a home game against Newburyport in Lawrence.
