NH Register Team of the Week returns!
HAMDEN — It could be considered a silver lining and a sign of hope in what has been a sub-par season so far for the Hamden boys’ hockey team. Well, at least by Green Dragons standards.
Goalie Matt Hoff made 29 saves as Hamden played to a 2-2 tie with No. 3 Xavier on Jan. 9. Then Mike DeMatteis scored a pair of goals to lead the Green Dragons to a 3-2 victory over rival West Haven three days later, helping Hamden earn Register Team of the Week honors.
“As I told the kids, we can’t feel sorry for ourselves,” Hamden coach Bill Verneris said. “The only way to get out of the hole is to keep working.”
