NHIAA Roundup: Surging Hanover skaters tip Concord

Suddenly Hanover is making some noise in the Division I hockey ranks.

Ben Acker scored two goals including the game-winner with 3:44 left to lead Hanover to a 5-4 decision over rival Concord at the Campion Rink in Lebanon Monday.

Concord rallied from a 4-1 deficit to tie the game with three third-period goals. But Acker collected a crease pass from linemate Gus Lyons and jammed it home for the game-winner. Hanover (4-5-1) is now 3-1-1 over its last five games since its first win against Concord, 2-1, at Everett Arena on Jan. 17.

“We’re playing better on defense and we’re gaining confidence,” said Hanover coach Dick Dodds. “Concord really played well and deserves credit. They never quit, even when they were down three goals. ”

Concord’s Connor Beatty and Hanover’s Sam Carey (power play) exchanged first period goals before Hanover scored three more times in the middle frame. Andrew Huizenga, Acker and Peter O’Leary lit the lamp. Concord rallied in the last frame, getting goals from Alex Marceau, Ethan Cole and Adam Godbout. Matt Norris and Alex Orcutt each had two assists for Concord. Shawn Cavallaro had three assists for Hanover which meets Bishop Brady in Concord on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Everett Arena.
