The varsity ice hockey team scored five unanswered goals to complete a comeback victory over Penn-Trafford on Tuesday and remain undefeated for the season.
The Highlanders won 5-1. Penn-Trafford, though, scored first and Baldwin was trailing at the end of the first period.
“We didn’t come ready to play and it was a rough start because of that,” senior Vinny Episcopo said.
Senior James Dulya agreed.
“We were not making passes when we should have and we were not putting shots on target when we should have,” Dulya said.
Baldwin tied things up in the second period. Sophomore Carson Kress scored off a rebound pass from junior Keith Reed even the score at one.
“Carson and Keith really came to play last night. They brought good energy especially in the third period,” Dulya said.
The team came with new energy in the third period, scoring four straight goals to secure the win. Reed scored early in the period to give the Highlanders the lead. Dulya, sophomore Dom Trimbur, and senior Justin Pollard also scored.
The win moves the Highlanders’ record to 12-0, maintaining their perfect start.
The team’s next game is on 6:15 p.m. Monday at Ice Castle, which will be senior recognition. They will play Armstrong.
