The Hoggers doubled up Andover 4-2 today at McCollum Arena to secure an important late season win. Grady Friedman '21 staked the Hoggers to a 1-0 lead when he tipped in a Chris Throndson '20 shot from the point. About two minutes later, The Hoggers struck again when Reese Ferrell '20 took a Jack Loran '19 pass and fired a wrister past the Big Blue netminder. The Hoggers opened the second stanza on a Power Play and made it count when Devan Tongue '19 jabbed one in from a tight angle by the Andover post to give the Hoggers a 3-0 lead. Big Blue fought hard and pulled one back on their own Power Play opportunity later in the period. In the third period, Andover notched another goal to pull within one and continued to press hard for the equalizer. However, NMH received a Power Play opportunity with about 5 mins to go in the game and grabbed an insurance marker when Devan Tongue '19 poked in a rebound off a Mike Kennedy '19 shot from the point. Andover pulled their keeper late for an extra attacker but were unable to puncture the Hogger defense. Connor Hasley '20 was between the pipes and turned in another excellent performance. Next up, the Hoggers play their final regular season contest Saturday night against Hoosac School at RPI's historic Houston Field House in Troy, NY.
