TYNGSBORO, MA– After earning their first home win of the season Friday night, the Colonials found themselves in a tightly contested battle with the New England Stars once again, this time coming out on the wrong end of a 3-2 score.
New England leapt out to an early 2-0 lead, with Josh Boyd and Henry Beguelin tallying within the first four minutes of the game. Kevin Remson would get Danbury on the board before period’s end, snapping a wrist shot home for his second goal of the weekend.
Kolby Donovan continued his hot streak, pouncing on a loose puck in front to knot the score at two. The goal brings his season total to 13 in 17 games.
Minutes later, Josh Boyd reclaimed the lead for the Stars off a rush. The Stars would keep the lead for the remainder of the contest, fending off several high danger chances from the black-and-orange brigade.
Shane O’Brien made 31 saves in the loss, including several spectacular stops to keep the Colonials within reach of the lead.
“The story was the first three minutes,” head coach Kevin Cunningham commented after the game. “We made a couple of soft plays against a tough team that enabled them to stake themselves to a 2-0 lead.”
“After that point we played a really strong game, but digging out from that hole was tough.”
The Colonials will be back on the road once more next weekend, stopping in Elmira and Long Beach.
