Bridgton Downs Phoenix 9-0

Bridgton Academy took down its second consecutive MAISAD opponent, Hyde School, 9-0 on Saturday. The Wolverines outshot the Phoenix 20-4.

The Wolverines were able to jump out to an early 2-0 lead on the first ten minutes, thanks to two Rob Palumbo (Kingson, NH) goals. The Black and Gray would not let up as they went on to score four more goals in the half to take a commanding 6-0 lead into the half.

In the second half Bridgton continued to pressure Hyde, and were able to find the back of the net three more times. "In the second half we were more patient, and waited for opportunities," said Coach Mellon. "The team is really coming together, we have gotten into a groove of late and played well."

Ryne Tillman (Medford, MA) stopped all four shots he faced, for his fourth shutout of the year.

Rob Palumbo finished the game with two goals and two assists. Dillon Flynn (Chapel Hill, NC) collected three assists and one goal, Ronaldo Vieira (Framingham, MA) had two goals. Ethan Martin (South Burlington, VT) scored twice and had one assist, Steve Palumbo (Kingston, NH) scored once and assisted on two other goals.

The Wolverines next face Tilton School on Wednesday October, 14. "Tilton will be a tough match, they played Winchendon close and it will let us know where we are," Mellon added.
