I am a Prospective: Student Parent

Boys Varsity Ice HOCKEY

Ice hockey has a long and proud tradition at Kents Hill School. The game has been played here since the early 1900’s and over the past 100 years the program has seen its share of great players, coaches, teams and advances in facilities. Legendary players such as Amo Bessone (US Hockey Hall of Fame as well as Michigan State Hall of Fame), George Balestri, Robert Irving, Hans “Whitey” Ohlin, NCAA All-American goalie Casey Tuttle, All-ECAC defenseman Brad Richard, and All New England goalie Brian Fleming are just a few of the great players who have come through the program. In 2001 the hockey program began play in the Alfond Athletic Center, a 7 million dollar athletic facility on campus that features pro style locker rooms and hockey rink. The 2008 boys’ hockey team was the first athletic program in school history to capture a New England championship when they won the Division II title that year.  In 2009 the boys’ hockey program took another step in its advancement by becoming a Division I prep program and in the 2011-2012 season qualified for the New Prep School Ice Hockey Association playoffs.

 

The vision of the Kents Hill hockey program is threefold; to develop individuals who are motivated to improve as people, students, and players, while representing themselves and Kents Hill School with the highest degree of sportsmanship, effort and respect, to advance our players to the next level of hockey, and to compete for the NEPSIHA playoffs and ultimately, win a championship.

 

Head coach Larry Cockrell has led the boys’ varsity hockey program for the past eight seasons. During that time the program has qualified for the NEPSIHA playoffs three times and won the New England Prep School Division II Championship in 2008.

Varsity Hockey Beats NYA

After a tough 6-4 loss to Hebron on Tuesday night, the Huskies came back and beat NYA 6-4 on Wednesday afternoon.  The NYA game was preceded by a ceremony retiring the number 33 basketball jersey of Cam Dow, a recent Kents Hill graduate who died in a tragic car accident during the holidays.  Many of the current members of the hockey team counted Cam as a friend.  The entire team attended the ceremony and immediately thereafter took the ice for the game.

The Huskies started slowly, and before they woke up NYA had a 3-1 lead.  NYA scored first, but then Kenny Britton took a pass from Mark Snyder in the slot and tied it up.  Joey Savinsky also had an assist on Britton’s goal.  NYA scored the next two, one on a power play, but then with two minutes to go in the period the Huskies got a power play goal of their own, again from Britton, with assists from Savinsky and Nik Serbic. 

Kents Hill tied it up halfway through the second when Ryan Bunyon scored a nice goal on passes from Frencesco Tolfa and Jared Cockrell.  NYA came right back and took the lead with six minutes left in the second.  After that it was all Kents Hill.  With four minutes left in the period Pat Ward made a beautiful tip of a shot Tolfa took from the point and beat NYA goalie Griffin Cody in the top glove side corner.  Then the Huskies took their first lead of the game when, after Kents Hill dumped the puck in to run their forecheck, Cody played it up the left sideboards.  Bunyan anticipated the play and scored from the right hash mark before Cody could get back in the goal.

The Huskies carried the play in the third and added an insurance goal when Britton got his third goal of the game on an open netter with about a minute to play.  Bunyon got an assist on that goal.  Sebastian Hogye and Ben Eddolls combined for 28 saves for the Huskies.  Kents Hill outshot NYA 51-32.

Hockey Team Loses in Semi-finals at Stanstead Tournament

The Kents Hill Boys Hockey team went to Stanstead College in Canada over the weekend and took a 1-1-1 record into their semi-final game Sunday morning against a tough Stanstead College team.   Stanstead  scored late in the first period and again early in the second to take a two goal lead.  However, the Huskies got on the board and changed the momentum of the game when Jared Cockrell took a pass from Francesco Tolfa and scored a short-handed goal less than a minute after the Spartans second goal.  The Huskies carried the play and had a number of good scoring chances during the remainder of the second and then again early in the third, but Stanstead goalie Frederic Foulem was up to the challenge.   Stanstead put the game away with an insurance goal late in the third.  Billy McLaughlin played a great game and had 44 saves for the Huskies.


Kents Hill got into the semis by beating Rice Memorial 3-0 in their best game of the tournament on Saturday night.  The Huskies got off to a slow start but about halfway through the first Alexander Lind scored after Mark Syder made a nice pass to Jared Cockrell who moved it quickly to Lind leaving Rice goalie Ryan Pakulski  with no chance for a save.  Less than a minute into the second period, Marc Antoinne Bourbonnais took a pass from Charles Antoinne Malenfant and gave the Huskies a 2-0 lead.  Lind closed out the scoring for the Huskies 10 minutes into the third on a pass from Kenny Britton.  Billy McLaughlin had the shutout for Kents Hill with 32 saves.


On Saturday morning the Huskies played St. Francis Academy.  Despite outshooting St. Francis 56 to 33, St. Francis had a one goal lead as time was running out in the third.  However, with just under two seconds to go, Ryan Bunyon scored on the rebound of a shot from Will Lafford.  Neither team scored in the overtime period so the game went to a shootout.  Sebastian Hoyge closed the door on the first two St. Francis shooters before Jacob Watkins scored on a nice backhand deke to give the St. Francis the win.  However, because the game was tied at the end of regulation, the Huskies got a point which eventually propelled them to the semifinal game.  Hoyge had 31 saves.


In their opening game on Friday afternoon St. Foy outshot the Huskies 50-31.  Despite a stellar effort from Hoyge, the Huskies lost 4-1.  Will Lafford had the Huskies’ loan goal.


The Huskies play the Middlesex Black Bears at home on Wednesday before they get back to league play at Winchendon on Saturday.
