The Boston Shamrocks U19 team exploded for 11 goals in two games over the weekend, sweeping a set of non-league games against New England Hockey Club (MA) and The Rothesay Netherwood School from New Brunswick, Canada.

On Saturday, the Shamrocks blanked NEHC 6-0 behind two goals from Trechelle Bunn as well as a goal a piece from Julia Masotta, Kailey DeSantis, Carrigan Umpherville and Taylor Tom. Despite not lighting the lamp though, it was defenseman Saige McKay who was named player of the game thanks to her all around game and as head coach and Director Of Hockey Operations Sean Fisher pointed out, her ability to move the puck and create offensive chances.

"It was our first game in three weeks so it was nice to go through the game routine, be around the rink and just play," Fisher said. "We got to shake off the rust a little bit and get ready for some big tests upcoming.  I thought our defensemen were quite good - Saige McKay was a player that really stood out for me with how she transitioned pucks and her level of engagement in the play."

On Sunday, Boston dominated again, this time beating Rothesay Netherwood 5-1. Umpherville scored again, the Lea twins combined for three goals - with Keyanna getting two and Keyara one - and Shea Verrier lit the lamp as well. Keyara Lea was named player of the game.

"We played a good team that made us play in our own zone a little bit which was good for us - we will have more of that coming up," Fisher said. "I thought we gave up a bit too much off the rush today but Lauren Hennessey in goal was quite good when we did.  I thought the twins Keyanna and Keyara were quite good today.  They always play the game the right way and they we're rewarded on the stat sheet today so I'm happy for them."
