LACONIA — The Wolfpack won Saturday's home opener by a field goal, 10-7 over Manchester West (0-2). Laconia-Winnisquam's (1-1) attack was led by Matt Missert and Dakota Tyno, who each contributed a hat trick. "Our co-captains [Missert and Tyno] had a good night. They were here through the lean times and it's nice to see their leadership on and off the ice," coach T.J. Galligan said.
The Wolfpack jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a shorthanded tally from Tyno early in the first. Tyno scored the second ten minutes later, receiving a pass from linemate Missert in front of the crease and stuffing the puck under the West goalie's pads. Lac/Winn went into the first intermission with a 4-0 lead.
West did not back down, scoring three of their own in the second period. West had a hat trick from defenseman Zach Allard. Two of Allard's goals came in the second. The Wolfpack had to do without Tyno for ten minutes in the second due to a hitting from behind major penalty. Missert scored all three goals for the Wolfpack in the second frame.
West knocked the lead down to two (7-5) with six minutes remaining in the third. Lac/Winn responded ten seconds later bringing the lead back to three, where it would stay for the remainder. The four other goals were scored by Brycen Martin, Jack Decormier, and two by Ryan Smith .
The Wolfpack will host Belmont-Gilford on January 4 at the Laconia Ice Arena.
