Guilford girls’ ice hockey lost a tough matchup to SCC foe North Haven/Amity/Chesire by a score of 5-4 in overtime on Jan. 30 at home. In a game that saw four lead changes when the dust finally settled, Tessa Mackey had two goals and Edy Moritz had 26 saves for the Indians, who are all even after 16 games with a mark of 8-8.
In the first period, Guilford took the initial advantage with Mackey’s first goal unassisted at the 5:11 mark. The tide turned in the second as the visitors scored two unanswered tallies at 14:01 and 11:24 before Guilford answered back in the frame with a trio of goals that went without a rebuttal from Katherine Rosadini (assisted by Mackenzie Cattaruzza at 10:57), Nicole Raccuia (unassisted at 9:47), and Mackey (also unassisted at 8:58).
With a 4-2 Guilford edge, the game would take another turn in the favor of North Haven/Amity/Cheshire as they closed the scoring frenzy that was the second period with another pair of lamp lighters to tie the contest within the final two minutes.
The contest took a vast change of pace with a scoreless third period, so the matchup would need extra time to decide a winner. The visitors took the game that saw the Indians outshot 31-24 with a goal at the 7:47 mark of overtime.
