Title game hero Corsetto thriving in the spotlight

Title game hero Corsetto thriving in the spotlight

“My father took the helmet I was wearing when I got both concussions and threw it in the trash. He literally threw it away, then bought me a new one. I feel much safer now. You can’t play scared, because if you do that’s when you get hurt.”

Corsetto returned to finish with 13 goals and 33 points, eighth best in the region, with the last his best in the title game.

“Someone said to me, ‘I can’t believe you didn’t have Dudek and Sanford on the ice with the clock ticking down in the title game,’” said Kesselring.

“I told him that, in the clutch, you have to have Dom on the ice. He has this relentless attitude. He’s so tenacious, and has the speed and quickness to succeed.”

While the idea of moving to juniors did enter Corsetto’s head in the offseason, he decided Pinkerton was still where his heart was.

“When you are playing for your high school team you can really connect with the guys in a way you can’t in juniors,” he said.

“I felt like it was best for me to play my senior year. Plus, it costs $7-8 thousand to play juniors.”

Playing on a top line alongside his brother Gio and Connor Brady, Corsetto (11-12—23) has helped Pinkerton rebound from a 2-2-2 start to improve to 7-4-3 on the heels of three straight wins.

“This is an inexperienced team that took a while to get going,” he said.

“We feel like we have a very balanced team that will do everything we can to win. There are three, even four lines that can play, and we feel like we can make another run.”

Best of the best

Methuen superstar Matt Bauchman, after a slow start, has caught fire of late with 10 goals in his last 10 games and continues to cement his legacy as one of The Eagle-Tribune area’s all-time greatest scorers.
