Sports February 11, 2011 - 11 Pelham~Windham Sports Wolf Pack Launches Weekend Attack on Clippers
by Marc Ayotte In Division III hockey action on February 4 and 5, the Windham-
Pelham Wolf Pack addressed their recent defensive woes and, combined with a strong offensive performance, iced Portsmouth High School in a home-and-home series. In Friday night’s 7-1 drubbing of the Clippers at Portsmouth, Colin Begin had his second strong offensive output in as many games to lead the Wolf Pack’s 52 shot-on-goal assault. With individual goals by Dustin Lubinger, Korey Lubinger, Brian Barnard, Nick Morin, and Connor Tierney, as well as stellar goaltending by Caitlin Re, the W-P skaters never trailed in the game. In fact, netminder Re (22 saves) had a shutout
in the works until late in the game when Portsmouth finally slid one by her on a second rebound opportunity. Prior to losing her shutout, Re made three great third-period saves—one on a Portsmouth breakaway and two point-blank attempts from the slot. “Her positioning has been excellent,” commented head coach

Doug Watson on his goaltender. “She’s been doing real well for us.” The following night, the two teams faced off against each other at the Icenter in Salem. Expecting to see a fired-up Clipper team after being embarrassed on their home ice, just the opposite occurred. A mirror image on the offensive side of the score sheet saw W-P cruise to a 7-2 thumping. The Wolf Pack came out the aggressors and at 1:23 of the opening period, a goal by Morin assisted by linemate Porter Carelli put the Pack up 1-0. After several great scoring chances by Morin, Korey Lubinger, Zach Malone, and Begin throughout the period, W-P finally got on the board again. Dustin Lubinger fired a wrist shot from just inside the right faceoff circle, beating the Clipper goalie short-side. As in Friday night’s game, the Pack led 2-0 at the end of the first period. With an even quicker start to period two, the Wolf Pack scored 25 seconds in on Morin’s second goal of the night, with the assist going to Korey Lubinger. With Portsmouth unable to mount any kind of attack against the stingy W-P defense, it was just a matter of time before the Pack took a 4-0 lead. Just past the halfway point of the game, Carelli scored, adding to his earlier assist. In the latter part of the middle frame, Re made a big save on Portsmouth’s Jerry Witkowski as he broke in with a quality scoring chance. Consecutive, fundamentally sound position saves kept the Clippers off the board until Greg Burzynski scored with just 1:13 left in the period. Portsmouth played their best hockey of the night during the final stages of the middle period, but still found themselves trailing 4-1 when the zamboni appeared. Portsmouth started the third period with the same intensity they finished with in period two. Recording his second goal of the night just over two minutes in was Burzynski, cutting the Pack lead to 4-2. As play continued, things became a little feisty on the ice with both teams picking up several penalties. While skating four on three, Wolf Pack’s ’Scorin’ Morin recorded a power-play goal, as his hat trick gave the home icers a comfortable 5-2 lead. Just moments after a beautiful centering pass through the crease from Malone to Barnard failed to convert, Begin scored his third goal of the weekend on a shot from a difficult angle that caromed off the opposing goalie’s pad. Then, after a superb, relentless individual effort of forechecking, tri-captain Morin picked up the loose puck and buried

a wrist shot just over the outstretched pad of Clipper goalie Jimmy McDevitt. The textbook display of forechecking highlighted Morin’s tremendous four-goal evening, giving him a total of 24 on the season. With the back-to-back wins, the Wolf Pack is now 8-3 on the season and moved into sole possession of fourth place in the Division III state hockey standings.
Lady Jaguars Add More in the Win Column
by David Jaracz The Windham High girls’ basketball team continued their pattern of wins and losses on the season with a convincing 60-43 home win versus Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Tuesday night. After an opening night win versus Plymouth back in December, the Jaguars have had the strange statistical pattern of two losses followed by two wins throughout the entire season. After back- to-back losses versus John Stark and Hollis- Brookline, Windham followed up Friday’s win against Bishop Brady with the win against the Bears. Coe-Brown (5-8) was ready to take three point shots right from the get-go, and Windham (7-6) made them pay for their cold shooting in the first quarter. The first nine shots Coe-Brown took were either three- pointers or long-range twos, and they made only three of them. The Jaguars maintained their interior defense and let the Bears launch their long-range shots while Windham was focused on driving to the hoop on offense. Freshman forward Brianna Angelini put in five points in the first quarter and junior Ashley Adamson added four, almost all of the points coming off lay- ups.

Defensively, Windham used a partial press on Coe-Brown, trying to take the rhythm away from their offense. Between the Windham defense and the cold long-range shooting by the Bears, Coe-Brown never got in sync on offense the entire night. The second period was when Jaguar guard
Kelsey Schiebel took over the game. Despite going against interior defenders that were much taller, Schiebel drew foul after foul with her baseline drives to the hoop. She not only made all six of her free throws in the quarter, but also helped bump up the Bears’ foul total, putting Windham in the bonus free-throw

situation. Windham’s free-throw shooting on the night was superb, as they went 13 of 14 in the first half and 29 for 32 overall. The discrepancy in free throws (Coe-Brown went 8 of 12 on the night) was a direct reflection of Windham’s tenacity in driving to the basket and of the Bears’ preference of taking outside shots. After giving up 14 points in the first quarter, the Jaguar defense held much firmer in the second, allowing just six points en route to a 31-20 halftime lead. Schiebel continued to shine in the third, adding nine more points from everywhere on the court: a long-range jump shot, a three-pointer, a driving baseline lay-up weaving through the defense and, finally, two free throws. She ended up with 19 on the night, leading all players in scoring. Angelini was next on the score sheet with 13 of her own. The Jaguars switched from a three-man press to a two-man trap in the third quarter and were equally effective with it. Despite six third-quarter points from Kelsey Federico, Coe-Brown was never able to make up the difference Windham gained in the second quarter. The fourth quarter continued much the same way, and Windham closed out the game by continuing to make their free throws. Schiebel, Clairee Putnam, and Bernadette Connors all made theirs in the ending moments of the game, closing out the scoring at 60-43. Windham will look to break their pattern of back-to-back wins followed by back-to-back losses when they travel to undefeated (10-0) Souhegan on Friday, then returning home Tuesday to play 6-8 St. Thomas Aquinas.
