MSC gets back on track, tops Cranston West

January 16, 2012

CRANSTON — Mount St. Charles is showing signs of turning the corner.
The Mounties, who outshot unbeaten Hendricken 38-23 during a 3-2 loss on Saturday night, kept the pressure on Monday during a 3-1 victory over Cranston West, outshooting the Falcons by a 60-25 margin.
Cranston West goalie Derek Hagopian made 60 saves.
“He’s the reason the game was close,” Mount coach Dave Belisle said. “I thought we played very well. We’re just having a tough time scoring. We’re making strides. This is such an inexperienced team, it is definitely still a work in progress.”
