FALMOUTH, Mass. – With the Super 8 tournament selection meeting set for Saturday, teams are looking to leave a lasting impression.
In the consolation game at the Buddy Ferreira Classic on Thursday, Archbishop Williams was looking to a final stamp on its season with a 3-1 win over Waltham.
It was a performance that Bishops head coach Derackk Curtis found to be a little uneven.
“We were never really able to get on track, but we’ll take the win,” he said. “We just had way too many penalties and there was just no momentum.”
Archies (12-5-3) never trailed, but never found its rhythm either, giving the Hawks (8-8-5) the benefit of seven power-play chances.
All-tournament team selection Mike Jessman opened scoring at 9:05 of the first, with assists from Mike Sorrenti.
Ryan Dunn netted his first of two goals on the evening at 11:07 of the second on a beautiful end-to-end rush.
Waltham interrupted Steve Jenner’s shut-out bid at 6:04 of the third on a Ben Macewen goal.
Now, all the Bishops can do is wait and see which tournament they will enter next week.
“We should have beat HIngham, but we won the next two games,” Curtis said of his team’s performance on the Cape this week. “That’s the way it can be sometimes, but I’m happy.”
