The Bishop Fenwick boys hockey team finally got back in the win column with a 5-0 shutout win over Saugus in a non-conference game at Kasabuski Arena Monday evening.
The Crusaders were led by Derek DelVecchio and Tom Estella, who each had two goals in the win. Andrew Phillips added one goal, while Diego Alvarez-Segee, Jake Murphy, Aedan Grenham, Matt Roscoe, Nick Muzi, Jake Moniz and Ethan Belt each had one assist. Moniz and Dylan Bloom combined for a shutout in net for the Crusaders.
“My team finally put the puck in the net,” Fenwick coach Jim Quinlan said. “Right off the bat, we scored at 14:49 in the first period. They had opportunities to put the puck in the net. We’re coming on pretty strong right now. If we can keep scoring goals we’ll be in good shape.
“Everybody played well. Jake had a great game in net and freshman goalie Dylan Bloom got some playing time.”
Fenwick (4-6-1, 2-3 CCL) is back in action Saturday with a road game against Catholic Central League foe Austin Prep at Stoneham Arena.
“We played Austin Prep earlier in the season,” Quinlan said. “We had plenty of opportunities. We outshot them but we couldn’t put the puck in the net. Hopefully this time around we can make the most of those opportunities. My team is starting to believe in themselves.”
Saugus (4-6-3) will try to snap a four-game losing streak against Northeastern Conference opponent Peabody Saturday at Kasabuski.

Hingham 4, St. Mary’s 2
St. Mary’s came out flat and could never really get anything going in the battle of top-10 teams at Pilgrim Skating Arena.
Nick Napolitano and Kory Ouellette each had one goal for the Spartans, while Colin Reddy added one assist.
“We just came out flat, and you can’t do that against a talented team like Hingham,” said St. Mary’s coach Mark Lee. “We took some bad penalties and they were able to capitalize. I was very proud of our fight in the third period to get back into it, but it ended up being too little, too late.”
The Spartans (11-2-0) will try to get back on track Saturday when they host Arlington Catholic at Connery Rink.
St. John’s Prep 3, Melrose 3
The Eagles got one goal each from Jack Riley, Ryan Webb and Josiah Brown in the loss. Ned Malolepszy added one assist.

St. Mary’s 3, Lexington 1
Despite what coach Frank Pagliuca characterized as a lackluster performance, the Spartans escaped with a win at The Edge Sports Center in Bedford.
Marina DiBiasio led the way with one goal and one assist, while Jenna Chaplain and Codi Butt each had one goal. Zoe Solomons contributed two assists, while Mady Hentosh and Sam Porazinski each had one assist. Goalie Maddy Delano had 11 saves in the win.
“We had some extremely poor puck management, and we were very lucky to come away with two points,” said Pagliuca. “We need a much better effort and we need to raise the compete level significantly on Wednesday.”
