Mount St. Charles hockey coaches Dave and Bill Belisle saw some improvement in their squad during a 3-2 loss to unbeaten La Salle on Saturday night.
WEST WARWICK ‚Äď Mount St. Charles took unbeaten La Salle into overtime before dropping a 3-2 decision on Saturday night at the West Warwick Arena.
Sophomore Bryan Lemos netted the game-winner at the 3:09 mark of overtime.
Mount had led 2-1 on a goal by Brandon Borges early in the second period. La Salle, which had defeated Mount 3-1 in the season opener on Dec. 2, tied the game three minutes into the third period on a goal by Stephen Roccio when the Mounties had two players sitting in the penalty box.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs the second time they have scored on us in a 5-on-3 situation,‚ÄĚ Mount coach Dave Belisle said. ‚ÄúOther than that, I think we played extremely in this game. I thought we had the edge in the territorial battle. In the first game against La Salle, I thought they won the territorial battle so this game was definitely an improvement for us.
‚ÄúI thought we skated better and passed better,‚ÄĚ Belisle added, when asked for specific examples of the improvement in his young squad. ‚ÄúIt was really a great hockey game.‚ÄĚ
Both teams took 33 shots on goal. Mount goaltender Brian Larence made 30 saves on the night. Freshman goalie Tyler Walsh made 31 saves for the Rams.
The Mounties are now 1-2 in Division I action this season with both their losses coming to La Salle, which beat them 3-1 in the season opener. Mount will host Moses Brown at 9 p.m. on Friday night at Adelard Arena.
