FOXBORO – The 2015 Mini Chowder Cup is underway and with it began the tournament’s newest division, the 2003’s. The first win of the division’s inaugural tournament went to the Boston Jr. Eagles, who defeated the New England Nordiques 7-0 on Friday morning at the Foxboro Sports Center.
A close game through one got away from the Nordiques in the second, and did so rather quickly. After entering the game’s latter half trailing 2-0, the Nordiques fell behind 3-0 less than a minute into the second on a shorthanded score by Nolan Joyce.
Just after the midpoint of the second, however, is when they Eagles hit their peak, scoring four times in the game’s final seven minutes to run away with the 7-0 victory.
Four different Eagles were credited with multiple points in the offensive assault, Jack Hughes chief among them with a game-high three goals and four points. Landyn Greatorex was right behind with three points, notching a goal and a pair of assists.
Greyson Pane was credited with making 27 stops in posting the shutout for the Eagles.
