Greenfield 6, Chic. Comp 2 — The line of Bryan Baumann, Doug Hanieski and Evan Simmons continued its hot streak with four more goals as Greenfield High School defeated Chicopee Comprehensive High School, 6-2, in an independent hockey game Saturday night at Collins-Moylan Arena in Greenfield.

The unit has accounted for nine goals in the past two games and helped the Green Wave (7-3-1) avenge early-season losses to both Chicopee High School and Chicopee Comp.

“We are now in the second half of the season and the new era of Green Wave hockey is beginning to believe what type of team we can be,” Wave coach Adam Bouchard said.

Hanieski opened the scoring just 26 seconds into the game with an unassisted marker, but the Colts tied the game two minutes later when Ethan Pajak scored from Matthew Villandry. The Wave answered with two goals before the end of the period. Baumann scored on a feed out front from Hanieski, and Aurel Pydych then got on the board with a goal from Mason Whiteman and Kyle Barnes.

Greenfield continued to pour it on in the second period when Baumann scored from Hanieski and Simmons, and Cassidhe Wozniak scored from Ethan LaFleur to put the Wave up 5-1. Derek Boutin scored for Comp in the middle period, but Simmons scored from Hanieski and Baumann on a third-period power play to finalize the scoring.

Greenfield outshot the Colts, 29-21. Riley Drew finished with 19 saves in the win, while Kyle Vezina made 23 in a lsing effort.

The Red Raiders picked it up in the second half, as they were outscored by just a 25-22 margin after intermission.

Taylor Cleveland was the high scorer for Athol, finishing with 14 points. Desinty Wrigley had 4 points on the afternoon.

Athol hosts Easthampton High School Tuesday.
