Railers EHL – Weekly Roundup February 1-7, 2022

It was a great week for the Worcester Railers Jr. Hockey Club’s EHL team as they won all three games they played. 

They started off with a 4-1 win over the East Coast Wizards on Tuesday, downed the Connecticut Chiefs 4-1 on Thursday and finished the week with a solid 5-2 win over the Walpole Express. 

With 11 regular season games left, the Railers are playing great hockey at just the right time with the playoffs right around the corner. 

In game one of the week against the Wizards, the Railers took a 1-0 lead late in the first on a power play goal by Matt Pimental (East Providence, RI). In the second period, Worcester added another on a Damon Dulac (Quebec City, QUE) tally. 

Jack Lee

Midway through the third, the Railers took a 3-0 lead on their second power play goal of the game, this one by Jack Lee (Chicago, IL). 

The Wizards got one back later in the period, but an empty-netter by Colin Roe (Hyde Park, MA) with 13 seconds left sealed the 4-1 win. 

In their second game of the week, the Railers found themselves down 1-0 early in the second period against the Chiefs. 

But, Worcester quickly turned things around as they got two quick goals by Roe and Brendan DeMarco (Lowell, MA) to take a 2-1 advantage. 

In the third period, the Railers added to their lead in a big way with two power play goals by Lee in a two-minute span to put the Railers on top 4-1 and they would go on to win by that score. 

Mike DiMascolo

The Railers continued their hot week Saturday in their game against the Express. They started off strong with two first period goals by Charlie Addesa (Andover, MA) and Mike DiMascolo (Cranston, RI) to take a 2-0 lead.

After Walpole got one back early in the third, the Railers responded quickly. Lee made it a 3-1 game with his fourth goal of the week and shortly after Jake Barcelou (Hyde Park, MA) netted one making it a 4-1 game. 

Mike Martignetti (Winchester, MA) added an empty net goal late in the third giving the Railers a 5-2 win. 

Worcester (25-11-1) looks to keep it going this week when they take on the New Hampshire Avalanche Tuesday at home (11:30 am), host the Chiefs Thursday (11:30 am) and the Seahawks Hockey Club Saturday (3 pm).
