Bishop Guertin 3, Trinity 0: After two scoreless periods, Bishop Guertin skaters erupted for a trio of third period strikes while Cardinals goalie Griffin Scanlon continued to deny all Trinity wingers, and the Nashua club blanked the Pioneers in Division I boys' hockey Saturday at the Skate 3 Arena in Tyngsboro, Mass.
Andrew Casey led the BG offense with two goals including the game's first at 8:41 of the third. Reed Farhart also scored for Guertin which sports an 8-7 record.
Trinity goalie Ryan Slatkey finished with 33 saves as the Pioneers slipped to 11-4-1.
