Foxborough Ice Hockey Team Ties Attleboro

Attleboro and Foxborough played to a 1-1 tie Monday afternoon.


The Attleboro High Bombardiers and the Foxboro Warriors skated to a 1-1 draw at Aleixo Arena in an early afternoon game Monday in Taunton.

The goalies were the stars as both teams had a number of chances to find a winner in a back and forth third period, but Foxborough's Melissa Almeida and Attleboro's Andrew Campion were unbeatable and the game finished tied.

Zach Dragun gave the Bombardiers a lead with 4:59 to go in the first period when he finished off a pass from Ryan Holske. Foxboro's Aiden Campbell tied things up when his wrister through traffic found the corner of the net.

"I thought we had a good shot when it was five on five, but we took too many penalties," said Attleboro coach Mike Cripps. "I just told them they need to come out with intensity cause they're not going to quit."

Foxboro coach Jim Genovese was pleased with his team's offense even if they couldn't find the winner.

"We moved the puck pretty well, we got our chances, he (Campion) came up big on some and maybe some were shots we shouldn't have taken, but we worked hard."

The third period began with the Bombardiers giving the Warriors three power play opportunities, but Campion robbed Campbell from point-blank range. Then Dragun's shot on a shorthanded breakaway went over the net.

The Bombardiers created a number of chances with Jake Reynolds being stuffed by Almeida then having the potential winner taken off the board after a whistle when the puck appeared to be still loose in the crease.

Campion made another great save on Corey Stamatov after the Foxborough forward was left all alone in the slot.

Attleboro (1-5-2) will continue Hockomock League play on Wednesday night against Stoughton, while Foxborough (3-4-2) will play that night against King Philip.
