Late Hughes goal gives Andover hockey tourney win

(Continued)

The Golden Warriors continued to dominate the pace of play into the third period, firing shot after shot on Newton North goalie Natalie Cohen. But the sophomore netminder was rock-solid, stopping 18 shots in the third quarter alone, and 38 for the game.

But just as the game seemed destined for overtime, the Golden Warriors struck for the game-winner.

“I was trying to get the puck in deep, get it on net and see what happen,” said Keefe. “Thank God, Caroline was there. I saw her shoot it in and it was a pretty awesome moment to see the magic happen.”

Hughes ended up on the ice, at the bottom of a celebration in the corner.

“I’m honestly not sure if I got knocked over by (an opponent) or one of my teammates, but I just stayed on the ice and someone hugged me. To see us pull through like that was amazing.”

Now with a playoff victory under their best, the Golden Warriors are dreaming big.

“We wanted this one so bad, but we want the next one even more,” said Hughes. “We want to play at the (TD) Garden.”
