Knights topple Colonials 4-1

RAYNHAM, MA– The Colonials’ offense ran dry last night in a 4-1 loss to the New England Knights. After scoring 27 goals in their last five games, Danbury couldn’t solve opposing goaltender Zach Roncarati in a frustrating tilt.

The Knights struck first in the opening period moments after the Colonials completed a penalty kill. New England later doubled their lead in the second on a transition goal off a blueline turnover.

The host Knights pulled away in the third, leading 4-0 on the strength of a well-executed powerplay and a tally on a rush.

Nate Mastrony netted Danbury’s lone goal, coming shorthanded.

“We ran into a tough opponent tonight,” head coach Kevin Cunningham lamented after the game. “They played an organized and heavy game that put us on our heels. Their goalie was tremendous. They’re a well-coached team.”

The black-and-orange brigade take their show on the road once more today as they take on the division rival Elmira Jr. Soaring Eagles.
