Wheelock Shut out in First Meeting with Regis

WESTON, MA - Regis scored five times in the opening 5:30 en route to a 14-0 victory against Wheelock in non-conference action on Wednesday at the Regis Athletic Field. The first-year Wildcats remained winless through six contests, while the Pride moved to 3-2.

Wheelock, which served as the home team after the contest was moved from its home venue at Pine Manor College due to unplayable field conditions, received 11 saves from sophomore Michael Manning (Brookfield, NH/Kingswood Regional). He also snapped up eight ground balls, while classmate Paul Collins (Hyde Park, MA/Sharon) recorded four from his position as a defenseman.

Sophomore Bradford Hastings (Mansfield, MA/Mansfield) had four goals and an assist for Regis, freshman John Basbas (Framingham, MA/Framingham) added a hat trick and 10 ground balls, and classmate Billy Stewart (West Roxbury, MA/Catholic Memorial) assisted four goals.

Freshman Tyler Beyor (Carthage, NY/Carthage) picked up the win after making one save during a shutout first half, and classmate Breandan Crane (Billerica, MA/Arlington Catholic) turned aside a pair of second-half shots after scoring a goal of his own during the opening stanza. Sophomore Stephan Bottex (Norwood, MA/Norwood) went 12 for 12 on draws and tallied seven ground balls.

Freshman Matt Molloy (Saugus, MA/St. Mary's) scored after 57 seconds for the eventual game-winner before Hastings tallied off a man-up opportunity at 12:02 of the first quarter. Basbas scored the next pair 1:05 apart, with his second marker the first of three straight that Stewart assisted. The Pride made it 7-0 at 3:42 before slowing the tempo, netting a pair of goals in each the second and fourth quarters, and tallying three times in the third.

Wheelock heads to New London, Conn., on Saturday to play Mitchell College at 2:00 p.m.
