The post-season-bound Bourne Canalmen pushed their overall record to 11-2 Wednesday night with a 6-1 win over Dighton-Rehoboth/Seekonk.
The Canalmen went right after DR/S with Will Humfryes testing opposing goalie Jake Lyman in the opening minute. Humfryes opened the scoring for the Canalmen 7:53 into the first when he skated in hard on the right side and popped a backhander high into the net stick side. Jeff Baranowski made a couple of nice saves in goal in the first period as Bourne outshot DR/S 10-2.
In the second period Bourne hammered away at the opposing net with 17 shots on goal. Again Humfryes opened the action with a hard shot in the first minute. Beau LaFlamme put BHS up by two, 9:57 into the middle period, when he raced across the blue line on the right, cut in front of the net and drilled a shot at the DR/S goalie that deflected into the net.
With 7:10 to play Tyler Hunt zeroed in on the opposing net and hammered a shot past Lyman. Humfryes had a 1-on-1 opportunity stopped and Hunt, LaFlamme, Devin Welch and Devon Pauley did a nice job on the penalty kill not allowing DR/S a shot.
Bourne went up 4-0 with 1:50 left in the second when Spencer Andrews got his stick on the puck in a scramble, pushing it into the far corner of the net. Just 12 seconds later Eric Anderson let loose with a blast from the point that flew past Lyman.
With a minute remaining in the middle stanza, Mike Poland pounced on a loose puck and got a shot past Bourne goalie Kevin Marsh, who took over between the pipes for the second and third periods.
The Canalmen successfully killed off three penalties in the final period. Joe English topped off the scoring for Bourne with 2:01 to play with a slap shot that went top shelf.
The Canalmen picked up a 9-4 victory Saturday at Tabor Academy over Wareham. Humfryes, LaFlamme and Hunt each had two goals in the winning effort. Tom Davis, Baranowski and Justin Desharnais each added one. Welch finished the night with three assists, and Pauley and Matt Crowley each had two.
Josh Eddy, Baranowski and Marsh each played a period in net combining for 14 saves.
