Windjammers sting Hornets with scoring barrageSzumilas nets four goals, Orne six assists in second straight Windjammer rout
Rockport — If one thing can be said about the Camden Hills ice hockey team through two regular-season games, it is that the Windjammers have no trouble putting the puck in the goal.
Hosting Leavitt of Turner on Wednesday night, Dec. 11 at the Midcoast Recreation Center, the Windjammers (2-0) had their second straight offensive explosion en route to a 12-1 victory.
Camden Hills has scored 20 goals, and allowed one, in its first two games.
On Dec. 11, the Windjammers led 3-0 after one period, 6-0 after two and added six more goals in the third period.
Grayson Szumilas scored four goals to lead Camden Hills, while Kieran Lydon added three; Nick Czuchra, two; and Parker Lawson, Jack Orne and Chase Matteo, all one. Orne also assisted on six of the 12 Windjammer goals, while Luke Noonan, James Annis and Szumilas had two and Nicholas Tassoni and Matteo one.
Windjammer goalie Jet Magri had 19 saves, including seven apiece in both the second and third periods. Ashton Dozois made 33 saves between the pipes for the Hornets.
Camden Hills held a 45-20 edge in shots. The Windjammers led 11-5 in the first period, 17-7 in the second and 17-8 in the third.
The Windjammers converted 1-of-3 power-play opportunities, while the Hornets were 0-of-4.
Camden Hills was whistled for four minor penalties for eight minutes and Leavitt three minor penalties for six minutes.
While the win was indeed impressive, veteran Camden Hills coach Karl Enroth downplayed the team's lopsided victory.
“Leavitt has some younger freshman players mixed in with some more physical older upperclassmen players who also played for Leavitt’s state championship [Class C] football team,” he said. “So, they missed a lot of the preseason hockey and probably in some ways are about a week and half behind in starting their season than other high school hockey teams.”
Szumilas had a pair of first-period goals for Camden Hills and Lydon added a third, thus the host converted three of their 11 scoring chances in the first 15 minutes.
Lydon, Chuchra and Szumilas added second-period goals before doubling their goal total in the final period.
The individual scoring included:
CH 1-0 at 9:53, goal — Szumilas (assists Noonan and Orne). Noonan shot from the blue line point and the puck found Szumilas, who knocked the puck into the net.
CH 2-0 at 6:32, goal — Szumilas (assists Orne and Noonan). Szumilas and Orne attacked 2-on-1 on the left wing. Orne passed to Szumilas, who one-timed the puck past the goalie.
CH 3-0 at 2:48, goal — Lydon (assists Annis, Tassoni). Lydon and Annis attacted 2-on-1 on the right wing side. Annis passed to Lydon, who one-timed the puck into Leavitt net.
CH 4-0 at 8:36, power-play goal — Lydon (assists Orne, Szumilas). Lydon, from the low slot, one-timed a rebound shot from Orne.
CH 5-0 at 7:56, goal — Czuchra (assist Matteo). Czuchra stuffed in the puck from the right side of the net.
CH 6-0 at 1:56, goal — Szumilas (assist Orne). Szumilas, from behind the net, quickly backhanded the puck into the net on the right post side.
CH 7-0 at 14:00, goal — Lawson (assists Szumilas, Orne). Lawson pinched down from the blue line point and one-timed a shot from the right slot.
CH 8-0 at 9:12, goal — Szumilas (assist Orne). Szumilas from the right slot.
CH 9-0 at 8:46, goal — Czuchra (unassisted). Czuchra jammed in a puck from the net front.
Leavitt 9-1 at 7:21, goal — Adam Poulin (assist Taylor Scribner). Poulin knocked in a bouncing puck at the net front.
CH 10-1, at 3:59, goal — Orne (unassisted). Orne forced a turnover at the defensive zone blue line and rushed end-to-end to score.
CH 11-1, at 3:27, goal — Lydon (assist Annis). Lydon scored from the left side of the net.
