The Baldwin varsity ice hockey team plays in the 3A division.

The varsity ice hockey team defeated Canon Mac 5-3 on Tuesday night. 

Seniors Dom Trimbur and Logan Picchi each scored twice, and senior Ryan Sulinski added another for the Highlanders.

Goaltender Eddie Nowicki shut the door on 18 of 21 shots. 

This extends Baldwin’s win streak to two games.

“We just played as a team and continued to play our game,” Sulinski said. 

Sulinski also said Trimbur helped jumpstart the game for the Highlanders with his first goal. 

“He gave us the momentum in the second period with a beauty of a goal,” Sulinski said. 

The Highlanders were up 3-0 until the Big Macs scored three unanswered goals. In the third period Baldwin retook the lead with Trimbur’s second goal. 

“I think the key play was the go-ahead goal in this period by Trimbur,” senior Lorenzo Shipley said.

The competition this year for the Highlanders is more difficult, because the team has moved up to AAA from AA. 

“Every win is huge in AAA this year because every time we play someone it’s a good game. There aren’t any bad teams, despite the records,” Trimbur said. 

The Highlanders play their next game on Monday at 7 p.m. against Cathedral Prep at Ice Castle.
