NHIAA Roundup: Pinkerton wins hockey contest, loses a top defenseman
The Pinkerton Academy boys' ice hockey team raised its Division I record to 8-6-0 by beating Nashua North 5-1 Saturday night at the Ice Den in Hooksett.
Dom Corsetto collected two goals and two assists for Pinkerton, which has won four of its last five games. The Astros led 1-0 after one period and 3-1 entering the third.
The loss dropped North's record to 5-9-0. The Titans entered the contest with a four-game winning streak.
Pinkerton coach Casey Kesselring said John Hamilton, one of Pinkerton's top defensemen, suffered a broken wrist early in the third period and will likely be lost for the season.
