Boys' hockey on Tuesday: No. 1 Hamden vs. No. 2 New Canaan

New Canaan lost defenseman Bo McGuinness and forward Kris Nugent to graduation but the Rams haven’t missed a beat this season with an 8-0 record and impressive wins over Xavier, Notre Dame-West Haven and St. Joseph.
It’s No. 1 vs. No. 2 as the No. 2 Rams get a big test on Tuesday at No. 1 Hamden at 6:30 p.m. as they face two-time defending Division I champion Green Dragons at Astorino Rink. Of course it all depends on whether the impending winter storm headed our way postpones the game. Get weather updates on this high school sports blog and
The Rams and their depth have been dominating opponents on both ends of the ice, so much so that Darien coach Larry Vieira believes they won’t lose a game this season.
New Canaan is led on offense by forwards Jimmy Jo Granito, Charlie Corcoran, Henry Corcoran, Dylan Hart and Reed Harper. The defense is led by goalie Tim Nowacki and defensemen Tom Krieger, Brian Tohir, Ryan Begoon and offensive-minded David Russell.
The Green Dragons (3-2) hope to rebound from a 4-3 loss to SCC foe Xavier on Tuesday (Jan. 11). The Green Dragons have balanced scoring led by forwards Jim Burt, C.J. Carignan, Paul Amarone, Nick Amarone, Justin MacGregor and Pat Lynch. The defense is led by R.J. Ugolik, Brandon Dadio, Teddy Kennedy, Sean O’Keefe and Michael Lee. Matt Hoff and Andy Varga have been alternating in goal.
This should be one of the most exciting games of the season. Veteran New Canaan coach Bo Hickey will have his team ready and seasoned Hamden coach Bill Verneris will have his team firing on all cylinders at home.
