Dorchester, MA- Despite a two-goal performance by defenseman Carter Rugg, the GBL Boston Jr. Bruins fell to the East Coast Wizards on Sunday afternoon.
The Wizards opened the scoring when they beat Andrew Webb at the 1:24 mark with a shorthanded goal.
Rugg tied the game with 1:50 remaining in the period when he took a pass from Joey Borelli in the right circle and fired it home.
Dominic Murphy put the 16U’s up 2-1 with 8:16 to go in the second when Madden Powers and Will Friedman sent him storming down the right wing. Murphy broke toward the center and sent the puck top shelf.
The Wizards, however, tied the game five minutes later.
Rugg netted his second of the game forty-five seconds into the third period when Aidan Tripp fed him on the point and he blasted a shot past the Wizards goaltender.
A power play goal by the Wizards tied the game with 2:24 remaining and the game-winner went in forty seconds later.
Webb skated off with 56 seconds on the clock, but the score held at the final buzzer.
The 16U’s return next Saturday when they play the Boston Jr. Bruins full-season team at 8:00 PM.
