Make that three wins in a row for the Bishop Fenwick boys hockey team. The Crusaders defeated Catholic Central League rival Archbishop Williams 4-1 Wednesday night at Canton Sports Complex. The Crusaders have won their past three games by a total score of 20-1.
With the win, Fenwick improved to 8-9-1 on the season. The Crusaders need three points in their final two games of the regular season to qualify for the state tournament.
“Hard work’s finally paying off for us,” Fenwick coach Jim Quinlan said. “We’re scoring now, that’s 20 goals in the last three games while only letting one in. We’re 5-5 in the CCL, tied for third. We’re making fewer mistakes and playing our best hockey at the most important time of the year.”
After a scoreless first period, Matt Moniz scored on Jake Murphy’s assist to put Fenwick on the board. The Crusaders scored three unassisted goals (Tom Estella, Ethan Belt, Ian Worthely) to seal the deal.
Fenwick hosts Shrewsbury Saturday night (6) in a non-conference game. The Crusaders close the regular season Monday (2) when they battle Peabody for the Carlin Cup.
