Boys' hockey: St. Joseph has two big games on horizon

The St. Joseph boys' hockey team has been rolling along with an 11-2 record as it approaches its first participation in the CIAC Division I tournament this season.
St. Joseph coach Marty Crouse of West Haven said the Cadets are playing as well as he expected at this stage of the season.
"We played well in our 9-3 victory over Westhill on Tuesday," Crouse said. "We changed a few things around and shook up the lines and saw a much better performance than in the past several games so maybe this is a sign of starting to play to our potential. Our defense of Kevin Robitaille, Ryan Parsons, Chris McCormack, Andrew Gore and Matt Vazzano continue to improve and compliments our offense. (Goalie) Zach Carrano has been playing well again which gives the others the confidence needed. If everyone does what he is capable of we can make D-I interesting."
The first line of Conor Crouse, Pat Corcoran and Sander Boroczky is leading the scoring punch and now the line of C.K. Keater, John Ferguson and Jeremy Sweeting is starting to jell and put some numbers on the board. Keeping those top two lines fresh are a line of all sophomores of Mark Laoue, Zach Usinger and Matt Greenhut.
"I'm really looking forward to the rematch against New Canaan (Sat., 6:20 p.m. Darien Rink) to avenge our lackluster game earlier this season," Marty Crouse said. "Then to add on Monday at the Whalers HockeyFest at Rentschler Field, a huge opportunity to prove ourselves again against Amity (4 p.m.). Playing outdoors in a special event-type atmosphere is really exciting. I can't wait."
