Fantastic and thrilling overtime victory against a very talented N. Andover team. The Melrose boys came out flying in the first period and matched N Andover stride for stride. Melrose played exciting hockey all three periods as it took a team effort solid goaltending and great coaching from Mr Chuck Tryder and Kevin Barry. Melrose hockey is alive again in the City of Melrose and the future looks bright with a talented group of players coming up.
