BA Downs Bowdoin JV for Second Time

For the second time on the season Bridgton Academy defeated Bowdoin College JV. The first meeting the Wolverines won 4-0, they came up with a 10-1 victory this time.

Bowdoin would jump out to an early lead, scoring in just the second minute of the game, but from that point on it was all Bridgton. After the initial goal by Bowdoin, Rob Palumbo (Kingston, NH) would play a part in the next four goals, alternating between goals, and assists. Palumbo's first goal came 30 seconds after Bowdoin scored. He then assisted Ethan Martin (South Burlington, VT), then scored on an assist from Dillon Flynn (Chapel Hill, NC). Palumbo returned the favor to Flynn in the 34th minute. Martin would close out the half with a goal to make the score 5-1 at the half.

The second half started much like the first ended with Paulmbo having a hand in the first four goals of the half. Scoring off of a Dillon Flynn assist in the 59th minute, assisting on an Ethan Martin score five minutes later. Bridgton also benefited from an own goal caused by a Rob Palumbo shot. The Palumbo to Martin combination connected one more time in the game to make the score 9-1. The scoring was capped of with Jamie White (New Orleans, LA) picking up his first points of the season with an assist to Omar Khartabil (Hampstead, NH).

Speaking of the game Coach Mellon said, "Once again we saw we were not prepared from the start, this is the second game in a row we have gotten down, it is something that needs to be addressed." Mellon was pleased with his teams ability to finish, "Ethan Martin is finishing like he can and Rob has bounced back to be very productive."

Rob Palumbo finished the day with three goals and four assists, Martin collected four goals, Khartabil and Flynn had a goal and an assist each. Ronaldo Vieira (Framingham, MA) and White each had a helper.
