WATERTOWN — After a difficult January, the Watertown-Pomperaug co-op ice hockey team hoped that a change on the calendar would change its luck when the Indians faced non-league opponent Suffield/Granby/Windsor Locks at the Mays Rink in Watertown on February 1.
The new month didn’t begin on a positive note, as the Indians lost to the Wildcats, 4-1 to fall to 2-12-0 on the season.
A three-goal second period powered the Wildcats, as senior Remington Ferrari scored three times and Mason Ferrari once.
The Indians’ lone goal came in the second period, that was the only shot of 25 that got past goalie Cam Begley.
Watertown-Pomperaug’s next three games are road affairs at Daniel Hand, St. Joseph and Immaculate High Schools. The Indians return home to face the Eastern CT Eagles at 8 p.m. Saturday, February 15.
The Indians traveled to the Northford Ice Arena for an afternoon game against SCC-SWC Division II rival North Haven High School on January 30.
North Haven, which is engaged in a battle for first place in the division with Branford High School, took over the top spot with a workmanlike 2-0 victory which boosted its division record to 4-0-2, two points ahead of BHS, which is 4-0-0.
The Indians dropped to 2-5-0 in divisional play and 2-11-0 overall.
