Pentucket scores three times in 1:03 to stun Rockport

NEWBURYPORT — Trailing by a goal heading into the third period, Pentucket saw it’s opportunity, and took advantage in a big way.

After a Rockport skater was sent off for a 4-minute major, the Sachems stuck with three power play goals in a span of just 1:03 to stun the Vikings 4-2 yesterday afternoon in the first roud of the Newburyport Bank Tournament.

“I think we really kept our poise out there,” Pentucket coach Bill Burns said.

“Especially with that 4-minute penalty where we were able to put things together and execute some plays.”

Rockport held a 2-1 lead late in the second period, but was dealt a major blow when Jon Ferrante, who had scored the team’s two goals, was called for hitting from behind and assessed a 4-minute major and a game misconduct.

The penalty carried over to the third period, and before two minutes had passed, Pentucket had turned the tide.

Bob Barry opened the scoring with a goal off a pass from Ben Klosowski 58 seconds into the period. Approximately 45 seconds later Jeremy Binding received a pass from Michael Kutcher and scored to give the Sachems the lead.

Finally, Pentucket got an insurance goal from sophomore forward Cam Wolbach off an assist from Barry.

Klosowski scored the Sachems’ first goal, while Robert Porter earned the win in net, making 19 saves. Pentucket (6-12-0) will play in the Doyle Division Championship game on Friday at 5 p.m.
