Trumbull skaters lose to Branford

Trumbull High lost to Branford High, 6-2, in a non-league boys hockey game at the Northford Pavilion on Saturday.

Brady Jensen and Sam Watson both scored a goal and had an assist for the Eagles.

Senior Captain Tyler Criscuolo and sophomore Zach Withington each netted three goals for the Hornets. Cooper Bunton had two assists and William Benni had one for Branford.

The score didn’t tell the whole story for the Eagles, who out shot Branford 25-24 and had three power-play opportunities but could not capitalize.

“The game was closer than the score, which is unfortunate but we made our own mistakes,” said Trumbull coach Greg Maxey. “Hopefully it was because we’re young and we’re going to get better. I like what some of the kids did. You don’t want to lose like that because we didn’t really play that badly.”
