WOONSOCKET — It may have been a non-league tilt, but it might as well have been a league game against La Salle or Hendricken.

Mount St. Charles played one of its best periods of the winter against Hamden (Conn.) High in the middle session on Saturday night, notching three goals. In the end, the Mounties celebrated a 4-2 victory at Adelard Arena.

After a scoreless first period, Cam Tedford needed just 17 ticks to convert passes from Marc Squizzero and Patrick Holmes and give the hosts a 1-0 advantage, but Christian Ugolik tied it 39 seconds later. Keith Phaneuf's unassisted tally at 13:23, but the Nutmeg Staters responded with Eric Perez' goal off a Ugolik feed only 52 ticks after.

Incredibly, Holmes gave the Mount a lead it wouldn't relinquish – after fine assists from Tom Crudele and Dan Allen – with 10 seconds remaining in the stanza.

Crudele's empty-netter with nine seconds left in regulation sealed the solid win. Senior captain and keeper Brian Larence stopped 24 Hamden shots for MSC.
