Saints secure first win


The St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes hockey squad got a much-needed win on a big stage earlier this month, beating St. John’s College High during a showdown at the Verizon Center.

Hitting the ice following a Washington Capitals victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Saints took a 3-goal lead in the first period on the way to a 9-0 rout. Sophomores Sam Movius and Parker Phippen scored their first goals as members of the team during the drubbing.

Juniors James Boden and Drew Nirenberg also scored, as did freshmen Zach Phan and Drew Butler.

The win was the Saints’ first of the season. They are 1-7 heading into this afternoon’s matchup with Bishop O’Connell.
