Boys Hockey vs. Stoneham reported by Jaime Gweshe

The Red Devils lit up the scoreboard and are now within two points of reaching the MIAA State Tournament with after Monday night’s effort against the Stoneham Spartans.

Burlington’s Kyle Crowley scored 45 seconds into the first period giving the Devils the early lead. Crowley followed up his first goal with another one fourteen minutes later to give Burlington a 2-0 lead heading into the intermission.

It was captain Chris Irwin who put the Spartans in a 3-0 deficit with his goal at 1:45 in the second period. Irwin would score his second goal of the night at 13:03. Kyle Crowley got a hat trick with his third goal of the night with less than a minuet left in the second period.

The third period was another strong fifteen minutes for the Devils. At 6:16 Irwin sent a few more hats down to the ice with his third goal of the night to put the Devils at a solid 6-0 lead. Burlington’s attempt to shut out Stoneham was stopped when Dalton Cox scored on a newly put in Nick DeSimone at 10:55. Burlington didn’t waste much time to respond to Stoneham’s attempt to inspire a tally when Joe Moran scored a minuet later. PJ Vigneau scored shortly after Moran for his second point of the night, his first coming from an assist on Moran’s goal in his previous shift. Captain Shane Matthews netted in a shot that finalized a solid 9-1 win for the Devils.

Burlington faces Winchester Wednesday night looking to gain those needed two points to qualify for the state tournament. “Every game from now on is must win for us,” said senior Kyle Crowley who had a hat trick in the game, “we have to focus on two points every night. Every time we step in the rink its two points. That’s all we want.”
