A short-lived comeback was not enough for Baldwin ice hockey to pull out a win as the team lost to Hampton 3-2 on Monday night.

The Highlanders started out slowly, which allowed the Talbots to take advantage.

“It was a rough start at the beginning. We just couldn’t get anything going,” junior Vinny Episcopo said.

A comeback started to take shape during the third period, in which seniors Cameron Greenaway and Andrew Golvash scored.

“Cam’s goal really sparked a fire under us to come back,” Episcopo said.

The team pulled senior goalie Cole Shannon at the end of the game in hopes of tying the game, but ultimately came up short.

“We could not get anything set up with an extra man on the ice,” Episcopo said.

The team has a break from action as their its game is against Mars on Dec. 6.

“We need to take the intensity we had … and make sure we have that same fire for the whole game,” Episcopo said.
