Belmont-Gilford hockey team eager for Saturday's re-match v. Berlin

After driving to Berlin on Wednesday to suffer a 5-6 loss, the Belmont-Gilford hockey team is eager to return the favor when Berlin comes to the Laconia Ice Arena on Saturday afternoon.
Referring to the undefeated Berlin, Belmon-Gilford coach Jay Londer said, "They've a very good team, there's a reason they're number one." All the goals in the back-and-forth game were scored during penalties, said Londer, who added that the loss came after a long bus ride and in a hostile environment. He looks forward to facing Berlin on his home ice on Saturday, and the opportunity to smear Berlin's pristine record. "We didn't play our best game and we only lost by one goal," he said. "We need to be tougher on the pucks and we need to finish our checks on Saturday."
Londer added that he hoped to see a crowd of several hundred cheering on the Bulldogs on Saturday. The game begins at 4:40 p.m., and he noted that Belmont or Gilford high school students who wear their school colors won't be charged admission.
