GHS at Dover goes down with a 3 - 4 loss in overtime on 14 January 2017

Dover Arena, Dover, NH. Saturday, January 14, 2017. Goffstown @ Dover, 215pm.  by Steve Beal

The Goffstown Grizzlies traveled out to Dover, NH this afternoon to play the Green Wave of Dover High School. The Grizzlies hadn’t played since their 6-1 victory over Nashua North-Souhegan last Saturday, on home ice. In that same span the Green Wave had lost two games already this week. They lost to Bow, 4-2, and then to Windham 4-3, on consecutive days. Funny thing though, they played two teams that are a combined 10-2 thus far, and judging by the scores, the games were competitive. Dover also was in the heat and intensity of game action twice this week, while the Grizzlies were idle. Honestly, that seemed to carry right into the game this afternoon.


The game was scheduled to start at 2:00pm, but started just after 2:15pm. The rink in Dover was cold, mostly full, and grew louder as the day went on. Dover entered play with a 2-4 record, having played the three top-ranked teams in Division II already. Goffstown came in at 4-0, while holding opponents to less than 16 shots per game, allowing just 6 total goals. Then again, that’s why they play the games. Before the afternoon was over, Dover would get their 3rd win of the season by virtue of their 4-3 win against Goffstown, in overtime.

Dylan Hyers would end up with a goal and an assist at Dover on Saturday.    ....READ THE FULL STORY and VIEW SEVERAL MORE STILL IMAGES.....




Goffstown 10 v Central 5 at JFK Coliseum Monarchs Christmas Hockey Classic

Monarchs Christmas Hockey Classic: Goffstown 10 v. Central 5

Well, another day, another team, another effort, another result. This is why you play the games and compete in the sports. Nothing is given. All that is known often does not apply. Every new day, anything can happen.  Now, I am not going to suggest that today’s 4pm game, between Goffstown and Manchester Central was a thing of beauty, or even an all-time great game, but it was a new start. A new day. A new result.


First, if I am being honest, I felt for first year player, and goaltender, Adam Richardson for Central. We are quite familiar with that scenario here in Goffstown. And though, I don’t pretend to be a part of the script, agreement, or discussion that went on in the Central locker room, I give credit to Mr. Richardson for playing all 45 minutes and getting back up every time he was down or beaten. Kudos to the competitor.  ...READ THE FULL STORY and VIEW STILL IMAGES....





GHS Hockey takes out Portsmouth in Overtime at Rinks at Exeter - Home Opener Cancelled
GHS Hockey: Goffstown 4 @ Portsmouth 3 (OT) Leave a comment

Wednesday, December 14, 2016. 400pm @ Rinks at Exeter, Exeter, NH – Goffstown @ Portsmouth by Steve Beal.

After a home opener on Monday, that didn’t happen for the Grizzlies, as school was canceled due to snow. The roads cleared as the day went on, but with school being closed, and roads re-freezing, the game was postponed.


So, we transition to the equivalent of a get-away-day in Major League Baseball with an afternoon contest on a Wednesday afternoon. The game started at 4pm. The full coaching staff was there by 5pm (hey, it’s okay, work happens). Goffstown’s offense showed up shortly thereafter.


The puck dropped and the season officially began. I heard people talking in the lobby, prior to game time, from both schools, and neither side seemed to be terribly confident in their team’s chances this season. On the other hand, the game turned out to be a come from behind, late tying goal, overtime short-handed game winner type of game. What else will happen over the next 20 or so .....
