The Naperville North Huskie Hockey Team defeated the DuPage Stars after losing to the team earlier in the season.

The Naperville North Huskies (4-11) defeated the Dupage Stars (3-12-1) with a final score of 9-1.

The Huskies, determined to break their six-game losing streak, started out the first period strong with goals by Brett Martin, Brett Hare and Gavin Klaisle.

“It had a lot to do with practice; this week we came in, we worked a lot harder, our coach talked a lot about playing with more intensity and [getting] better as a team,” Senior captain Brett Martin said.

The scoring continued into the second period, with goals from Peter Mandarino, Kyle Harfoush, Connor Ryan and Dan Boscarino, finishing the period up 7-1.

“For sure it was more about [thePhoto by Kirubel Mesfin
] team, we all seemed to click a little bit better today, and just being able to put more puck in the net and hold the lead throughout the whole game [helped],” Martin said.

Goals from Ryan and Martin in the third period put away the contest, as the Huskies completed the blowout win. Next up for the team is a home match against the Fenwick Friars (5-24) this coming Tuesday at All Seasons Ice Rink.
