BRIDGETOWN - In a game full of close calls, near misses, and solid passes, the Bridgetown Trojans senior girls skated their way to big 11-1 win over visiting Barrington Barons Friday evening in Valley High School Girls Hockey League action.

Both teams started strong in what was Bridgetown’s second game of the season. The Trojan’s were missing a significant portion of their team due to volleyball regionals, but that didn’t stop their momentum.

In the first period the team managed to notch six goals with BRHS captain Allison Clayton picking up four while Cameron Johnson and Bryanna Atkinson had one each.

Between the first and second period, Bridgetown’s Madison Weatherby was wished a happy 17th birthday over the PA. While this may be Madison’s first year playing hockey, she proved she’s not a rookie to be overlooked as she assisted on two goals by the end of the game.

In the second frame, penalties were handed out to both Bridgetown and Barrington for offenses ranging from body contact, interference, and slashing.

Samantha Perry, with help from Halle Nickerson and Lindsay Nickerson got one by the Bridgetown goalie to put Barrington on the scoreboard,

Between second and third, with two goals already, Cameron Johnson had her sights set on getting a hat trick before the night was finished.

The girls kept the excitement up in the third, and all players gave it 110 per cent. Barrington’s goalie made some impressive saves, managing to snag the puck out of the air at one point, preventing a goal.

By the end of the night, Clayton had seven goals under her belt. Emma Garde and Atkinson, both rookies this year, pulled off a goal each. Johnson, with two goals at the finish, didn’t get the hat trick, but did receive MVP in the dressing room after the game.

Both teams, Bridgetown and Barrington, gave the fans some great hockey to watch, and the Bridgetown girls showed without a doubt that they have a promising season ahead of them.
