The Canalmen (5-1) were quick out of the gate Wednesday night. Will Humfryes charged in on the Wareham net just 1:13 into the game firing a hard shot that Viking goalie John Colp blocked. A minute later Justin Desharnais beat Colp on the right side after skating the puck in from the blue line for the first BHS goal in a 9-1 Bourne win.
Twenty-seven seconds after Desharnais’s goal Humfryes tucked the puck inside the net from behind to give Bourne a 2-0 advantage.
