Benedic Jobin Had 1 Goal and 2 Assists Including The OT Winner Against The 95 Giants
The Boston Shamrocks head into February vacation on a high note after defeating the 95 Giants 4—3 in Overtime. This concludes the season sweep of Giants 3—0. The Shamrocks defeated the opponent in ECEL league play 3—0 and then twice in over time.
The Shamrocks traveled to the North End of Boston which would serve as a home game. Connor Androlewicz got the start in net. The game started off a little rocky as the Giants scored twice in the opening period. The Shamrocks had found themselves battling some adversity in the last few weeks so it initially seemed like this game would be no different. The team bound together between the first and second period not letting the two goal deficit waver their spirits.
Matt Williams found the back of the net to get the Shamrocks on the board early in the second period— assists coming from line-mates TJ Aiello and Jackson Puzzo. Williams, one of the Shamrocks leading scorers with a 10—14—24 stat line, had not found the back of the net since before the New Year. He would choose this night to end the drought.
Just a few minutes later Robert Hickman, who also had not scored since the exact same day as Matt Williams' last goal on December 4th, would end his scoring slump when Benedic Jobin made a low to high pass from the corner to the point. Hickman one timed the puck through a screen knotting the score at 2—2 (Jacob Greenholz with the second assist).
With just a few minutes remaining in the second period Matt Williams would find the net again to give the Shamrocks the lead. Benedic Jobin would get the assist again along with Edmonton, Alberta native Ryan Davis. The team would take a 3—2 lead into the third period.
Midway through the third period the Giants were able to tie the game 3—3. With the score tied, the Shamrocks found themselves in a bit of penalty trouble. The team got set to kill off almost a full two minute 5v3. Jack Meteyer, who has been one of the Shamrocks lead penalty killers and shot blockers went to work. The team killed off the entire 5v3 and would send the game into a 3 on 3 over time.
The Shamrocks controlled the majority of the play in the extra frame. Androlewicz would have to make a few challenging saves allowing the Shamrocks an opportunity go for the win. A line of Wyatt De Lise, Robert Hickman and Benedic Jobin took to the ice for an offensive zone face-off with just over a minute to play. De Lise kept a puck in on the point leading down to Hickman in the corner. Hickman sent another low to high pass from the corner to the net front finding Jobin for the game winner. A much needed victory as the team heads into break.
The Team comes back on Thursday for practice before heading out to Bridgewater, MA for the Boston Bandits showcase. With just four weekends remaining in the Shamrocks season the team looks to make a final push to end the first inaugural season.
