The Bishop Fenwick boys hockey team had a huge night offensively on Monday, rolling to a 8-0 win over St. Peter Marian at Worcester Ice Center.

The Crusaders got two goals apiece from Ian Worthley, Jake Murphy and Pat Roach, while Matt Moniz had one goal and two assists. Diego Alvarez-Segee added one goal and Nick Muzi had two assists. Tom Estella, Aedan Grenham, Ethan Belt, Derek DelVecchio and Trey Deloury each had one assist in the win. Jake Moniz and Dylan Bloom combined for the shutout in net.

“We scored 10 seconds into the game and we played well,” Fenwick coach Jim Quinlan said. “We kept on scoring and got some confidence. I put my third and fourth lines out there and they scored some goals. We played well and stayed focused on what we had to do. Freshman Pat Roach scored two goals, that was good to see. Now we have a big game Wednesday.”

Still alive in the hunt for a state tournament bid, Fenwick (7-9-1) takes on Archbishop Williams Wednesday (7:10). The Crusaders need five points in three games to qualify for the postseason.

“We have to work hard and play our systems. We have to go down to Canton to play Williams. If we stay focused and stay out of the penalty box, we’ll be OK,” Quinlan said. “We take it one game at a time and our next game is against Williams. It’s a big game for us. With our seniors and captains leading the team, they’re doing a good job getting the rest of the team focused.”
