The Chicopee Comprehensive Ice Hockey team opened their 2017-18 season with a 2-2 tie against South Hadley High School. The Colts opened the scoring with two goals in the first frame but could only hang on for the tie as South Hadley responded with goals in the second and third periods.
The even matchup was reflected not only in the score but in the results for the goalies. Both Comp’s Kyle Vezina and South Hadley’s Anthony Cigal recorded 24 saves on 26 shots.
For the Colts the goals were scored by Garret Riopelli and Derek Boutin.
The Colts will next be on the ice on Fitzpatrick Arena on Tuesday when they will host Drury High School at 6pm.
