GAME ON!

The Eagles opened the 2013-2014 season with two home games. Trumbull jumped out to an early lead versus East Haven (D1) with three first period goals, including a short handed tally from freshman, Brady Jensen. Unfortunately, Trumbull let the Hornets' talented first line get them back in the game with three second period goals of their own. The game ended in a 5-4 loss for the Eagles.

The THS skaters got back on track with a 4-0 win over Watertown (D2) highlighted by Alex Pierne's two first period scores, a perfectly executed power play goal from Matt Sarosky and another short handed goal from freshman, Reece Sowka. Senior defenseman, Andrew Charlton had two helpers.

Trumbull has two tough D2 contests coming up. They will be on the road for Milford (Saturday 12/28) and back home for Branford on Monday 12/30.

THS ALUMNI GAME
2013-SCHL-HS-ALUMNI-TOURNAMENT-TRUMBULLMASUK.jpg
It was another great showing for the THS alumni game. Over forty former players returned to take the ice. It was a closely contested game but the Gold (even graduation years) went on to win 8-7. Ryan Kisken ('06) scored the game winner with less than a minute remaining in the third period.  It was great seeing all the familiar faces and we appreciate your support!

A group of THS alumns, lead by Brent Piepenbring ('96) also participated in the SCHL Almuni Team Tournament. Playing six games over three days was tough but THS bested Lyman Hall (14-5), North Branford (10-2)and Hamden (8-5) to grab the top seed. The Eagles then topped East Haven (10-5) in the semi-final before falling to ND West Haven (3-6) in the final.

DIMASI DELIVERS!
aj.jpg

The 7-4-0 Fairfield Mustangs were riding a five game winning streak when they ran into the Trumbull Eagles.  The Eagles, struggling for quality wins and goals- got both!

AJ DiMasi had an all-time night, notching 6 of Trumbull's seven goals.  His performance tied the team record for goals in a game shared by Anthony Criscuolo '04 and Cody Lee '94. DiMasi did have some help as fellow linemate, Nate Walker, scored a goal of his own and assisted on four of DiMasi's six.  Matt Paolini was fantastic, turning back 48 of the Mustang's 52 shots.  The Eagles earned a very solid 7-4 victory.

EAGLES IN A HOLE AT THE HALF
The Trumbull Eagles have struggled through the first half of the season with a record of 2-8-0.  Although there have been some flashes, the THS skaters have been extremely inconsistant.  An inexperienced defense is learning on the job and goals aren't coming easily.  Trumbull will have to improve (and hopefully get some injured players back in the line up) as the second half brings the toughest part of the schedule.

LEADERSHIP
Capts.jpg

With a young team, leadership is extremely valuable. The Trumbull Eagles will look to seniors AJ DiMasi, Sean Gallagher and Matt Paolini to take the lead during the 2012-2013 season.  All three played key roles in the Eagle's championship run last season and understand the work ethic needed to be successful both on and off the ice.

The Trumbull Eagles earned their first win of the season with an overtime victory over Branford at the Harbor Yard Arena.  The two teams played in the holiday classic last year and met again in the state finals. The Eagles came from behind to win both games last season and did so again in this year's rematch.  Luke Bolton scored a key goal to tie the game at 3-3.  Brendan Strobel scored his second of the night at 2:26 of the overtime period to give Trumbull the victory.  Matt Paolini was outstanding in net with 37 saves.

TRUMBULL EAGLES WIN STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!
DSC_6973-1.jpg

The Trumbull Eagles trailed 2-0 entering the third period of the CIAC DII final but THS would not be denied their title shot.  Michael Ahearn scored an early power play goal and once the ball got rolling it looked like it could not be stopped.  Tim Riley and Brendan Strobel would each score to give THS the lead but the Hornets evened things up with a power play goal of their own.  Trumbull's first line was firing on all cylinders and the Hornet defense had no answer.  Ahearn made a great feed to Strobel for the game winner and then potted the empty netter to deliver Trumbull's first State Championship.  Matt Paolini made 35 saves and the Eagle defense, led by Cory Watson and Brandon Elbert punished the Branford forwards all game.

CIAC Semi-Final Trumbull got off to fast start with three first period goals in their semi-final versus the #1 ranked Guilford Indians.  The Indians fought back, scoring three straight power play goals to even the game a three apiece at the end of two.  Matt Paolini made 39 saves to hold off a potent Guilford offense that seemed to be roling.  THS showed great composure and got back on the attack in the third.  Brendan Strobel scored a power play goal which would wind up being the game winner.  Ahearn scored a back breaking short handed goal and then bagged the empty netter for a hat-trick.  Tim Riley and AJ Dimasi each contributed a goal.  The victory was sweet revenge as Guilford knocked the Eagles out last year in the semi's before losing in the final to Chesire.

Trumbull and Branford met earlier in the season with the Eagles winning a wild game at The Harbor Yard by out gunning the Hornets 7-6.  The bus will leave The Rinks at 5:15pm.

CIAC Quarterfinal It only took thirty-two seconds for senior, Tim Riley to open the scoring for the Trumbull Eagles in their CIAC quarterfinal versus the Wilton Warriors. Riley scooped up a rebound which he fired past the opposing goaltender, bringing a packed Wonderland of Ice to their feet. Trumbull's top gun, Michael Ahearn, kept the heat on, notching a natural hat-trick to give THS a 4-0 first period lead.  Wilton tried to crawl back but Matt Paolini came up with one big save after another for 30 stops on the night.

CIAC Round #1 It was all Trumbull as the Eagles (#5) skated to a convincing 6-0 victory over Watertown (#12) in the opening round of the CIAC State Tournament.  THS struck early with two first period goals.  The Trumbull defense continued their strong play, shutting down the Indians top line.  Matt Paolini made twenty saves to secure the shut-out.  Trumbull got goals from Michael Ahearn (2g + 2a), Brendan Strobel (2g + 1a) and Nate Walker (2g). Sean Dufficy and Alex Pierne added assists.

The Trumbull Eagles brought home the FCIAC TierII championship medals with a hard fought 2-1 victory over the Westhill Vikings.  Chris Sarosky was rock solid in net for the Eagles who outshot the Vikings by a margin of 28-16.  THS took a 2-0 lead on goals from Brendan Strobel and Tim Riley both set up by nifty passes from Michael Ahearn.  The Trumbull defense played another strong game allowing only two goals throughout the FCIAC tournament.

The Eagles (#4) knocked off the Fairfield Mustangs (#1) in the first round of the FCIAC tournament by a score of 3-1.  Matt Paolini was solid between the pipes for Trumbull who got goals from Brendan Strobel, Michael Ahearn and Brandon Elbert.  Ahearn and Elbert each added an assist as did Tim Riley.

EAGLES HAVE STRONG FIRST HALF

The Trumbull Eagles lost a heart breaker to cross town rival, St Josephs by a score of 4-3.  The THS skaters outworked and outshot the Cadets in the early going to jump out to 2-0 lead.  A pair of goals in the last minute of the second period had the Eagles enter the final frame up 3-1.  THS failed to  deliver the final blow on an early 3rd period power play and the Cadets began to work over the fatigued THS skaters.  Three tallies in the third, including the game winner with 17.7 seconds left sent the black and gold packing.

Trumbull hits the halfway mark of the season with a record of 7-3-0 and sits at the top of the DII standings.  HNIB has the Eagles ranked third in the state DII poll. One more win will qualify Trumbull for another post season appearance.

NEW YEARS EVE HS HOCKEY FACE OFF
DSC_7542[1].jpg

The Newtown Nighthawks bested the Watertown Indians 4-1 and the Trumbull Eagles beat the Branford Hornets 7-6 in OT during the first annual New Years Eve High School Hockey Face-Off.

Branford dominated the early going, jumping out to a commanding 5-1 lead as a sluggish THS defense struggle with the Hornets aggresive forecheck.  Just when it looked like it was time to pack the bus, Branford took a string of penalties that allowed Michael Ahearn and the Trumbull power play to get the Eagles back into the game.  THS scored three power play goals and Ahearn ended the night with 4g & 2a including the short handed game winner in OT.

It was a great event for all the teams involved and the win improves Trumbull's record to 5-1-0.

EAGLES OFF TO GOOD START
watsonc.jpg

The Trumbull Eagles are off to a solid 4-1-0 start and sit at the top of the CIAC D2 standings.  With so many new faces in the line-up the Eagles were due for some ups and downs but have worked hard to build themselves a nice cushion as they enter the FCIAC portion of their schedule. 

The first line of Ahearn, Riley and Strobel has been very effective and with Cory Watson in the mix, the power play has been sharp early in the season. THS must find some secondary scoring and be a bit better in the defensive zone but the effort has been there and the team looks to improve every week.

LEADERSHIP

The Trumbull Eagles will be led by senior captain, Michael Ahearn and senior alternate captains, Brandon Elbert and Cory Watson.  Ahearn led the Eagles in scoring last season and should pick up right where he left off.  Elbert and Watson will anchor the Trumbull defense with their physical play and experience.

 All three players are hard workers and committed teammates.  Their leadership will be invaluable with so many new players in the line up this season.

The Trumbull Eagles fell to the top seeded Guilford Indians in the CIAC DII Semi Final by a score of 2-4.  The Eagles came out strong with an early goal from Alex Hyde who took a pretty pass from Shaun Kennedy.  THS seemed to let off the gas during the second period and were dominated by the Indians.  Trailing 1-3, freshman Vincent Russello scored late to make the game interesting at 2-3 but Guilford got the insurance goal in the final minutes to end Trumbull's season.

EAGLES BEAT WESTHILL IN OT
Eaglehead2

The quarter final game of the CIAC tournament showed the best (and at times the worst) of the Trumbull Eagles.  The THS skaters got off to a slow start spotting Westhill two early goals including one in the first shift of the game.  Westhill brought an aggressive physical game and badly out shot the Eagles (THS managed only 4 shots in the 2nd frame) over the first two periods. 

And then, like so many times during the regular season, the real Trumbull Eagles showed up.  Trailing 4-2 going into the third period, sophomore, Matt Paolini settled in (43 saves) and Trumbull grabbed hold of the game.  Max Walker and Mike Ahearn move the puck well the the Eagle power play was on the mark.  Ahearn's two third period goals tied the game setting the stage for Max Walker's OT winner in the final minutes of a hard fought OT period.

Goals: Dimasi, Hyde, Ahearn (2) & Walker

Miressi Scores Twice as Ice Hockey Wins Thriller Over Worcester 3-2

With the Lancers (7-4-3, 4-3-1 MASCAC) trailing 2-1 entering the final stanza freshman Derek Serbon (Crown Point, IN) sent in the game-tying goal at 13:37 on assists from junior Nick Asterito (Philadelphia, PA) and freshman Mark Owen (Denver, CO).

The Rams (2-10, 2-7 MASCAC) then killed a pair of penalties midway through the period to set up Miressi's late game heroics as he received some help on the breakaway score from sophomore Ben Pacific (Marlboro, Mass.) and first-year Bo Driscoll (Chelmsford, Mass.).

Worcester State opened the second period with the first marker of the season from sophomore Pat Stychiewicz (Chicopee, Mass.) at 2:28, but Framingham State would respond with the game-tying goal 54 seconds later from junior Aran Ward (Dunstable, Mass.) and the go-ahead tally from Miressi with 3:51 off the clock on a power play.  Ken Tanaka (Wayland, Mass.) and Jamie Pollara (Plymouth, Mass.) assisted on the Miressi's game-tying score.

Miressi now leads Framingham State with nine goals and five assists for a team-best 14 points.

THS REBOUNDS WITH ROLLER COASTER WIN

Trumbull and Enfield exchanged goals all game but it was Michael Ahearn and the Eagles that scored the last and most important goal of the night.  Ahearn's goal was scored in dramatic fashion as he was hauled down by two Enfield defenders in the final few minutes of the game.  From his knees, he was able to control the puck and beat the Warrior goalie for the game winner.  Trumbull won by a score of 6-5.

The line of Ahearn (2g & 1a), Walker (1g & 1a) and Dimasi (1g & 2a) supplied the offense  while the defensive pairing of Pierson and Elbert was rock solid.  Freshman, Vincent Russello had two assists including the pass on Ahearn's winner.

EAGLES OPEN WITH 3-2 LOSS TO WATERTOWN

Apparently the Trumbull Eagles left their game on the bus, allowing a goal on the very first shift of the game.  Watertown continued to keep Trumbull boxed in their own zone and built a 3-1 first period lead.  The Eagles eventually settled in and began moving the puck more effectively but failed to score the elusive goal they needed.  A shaky start and failure to convert on numerous third period power plays were the Eagles' undoing.  THS out shot W/P 41 to 29 but could not seem to capitalize on their chances.  With the goalie pulled, Michael Ahearn scored to make it interesting.   Ahearn and Max Walker each had a goal and an assist.

At the halfway point of the season, the Trumbull Eagles sit at 5-5-0.  They will need to find three more victories in their next ten games to secure a CIAC play-off spot.  This will be no easy task with the toughest part of their schedule on the horizon.

The THS defense as been solid with young blueliners (Watson, Elbert & Dufficy) coming along nicely.  The goaltending tandem of Chris Sarosky and Matt Paolini have given the Eagles a chance to win most nights and are only getting stronger.  The forwards have had some trouble burying the rubber but when they skate hard and move the puck they're capable of doing some damage.  Sophomore, Michael Ahearn currently leads the team in scoring with 6 goals and 11 points.

BIG WEEK FOR UNDEFEATED EAGLES

The Eagles seem to be flying under the radar despite starting the season with a 4-0-0 record and are one of only three CIAC DII teams that remain undefeated.  Two of Trumbull's first four wins have come against DIII teams but they seem to be moving in the right direction.

THS has a big week ahead with the Immaculate/New Fairfield Co-op and Westhill on the schedule.  Immaculate is a DI program but has struggled thus far with a 0-3-0 record.  FCIAC rival, Westhill is playing solid hockey and sits just ahead of Trumbull with a 4-1-0 record. The Eagles have a great opportunity to move up in the standings, grab power points and earn some respect around the league.

The Trumbull skaters ended the halfway mark with a 2-7-1 record.   The Eagles dropped five division 1 games but it was a Watertown (D3) tie and losses to Westhill (D2) and Stamford (D2) that have backed THS into a corner.

The Eagles need to find six more wins in their next ten games if they hope to make the CIAC D2 State Tournament.  THS has qualified for post season play for the past seven seasons.  The good news is that the schedule lightens up a bit but there are still a number of tough outings including D1 opponents Trinity Catholic, Immaculate and East Haven.

INJURIES HIT EAGLES HARD
Ouch

Trumbull has been hit with injuries early in the 2008-2009 season.  Junior, Michael Madden ruptured his spleen in a fluke accident and will be out for the season.  Michael is a solid two way player and reliable penalty killer for Trumbull. 

Freshman, Michael Ahearn was starting to come into his own and playing solid minutes for the Eagles.  One practice after scoring his first goal and receiving "Player of the Week" honors, Michael broke his wrist during a scrimmage and will be out for six weeks.  The Eagles hope to have the talented forward back in the line up for the post season.

Leo Veres missed some practice time and one game due to tendon pain in his hand but returned to the line up for the Trumbull / Darien match up.

SENIOR NIGHT SUCCESS

The Trumbull Eagles recognized their three seniors the best way possible, with a big win on Senior Night.  All three seniors took part in the 7-1 victory over the Masuk Panthers.  Senior, Co-Captain, Jake Watson opened up the scoring with a blast from the point 29 seconds into the game.   After assisting on Watson's initial goal, fellow senior, Matt Hyde notched one his own.  Hyde ripped a shot over the Panther goalie's shoulder for Trumbull's fourth of the game.  Andrew Oxfeld made fifteen saves to hold Masuk to one first period goal.  

 Trumbull followed up the win with a poor showing against New Milford to end the regular season at 9-11-0.  The Eagles will face Ridgefield this Saturday in the FCIAC play-offs and try to dial in and get healthy for the CIAC DII State Hockey Tournament.

TRUMBULL STARTS SECOND HALF WITH A WIN

The Trumbull Eagles ended the first half of the season with a 3-7-0 record.  During their first ten games the Eagles faced off against seven division 1 opponents. 

The black and gold started off the second half with a 3-1 win over the Stamford Black Knights.  The last ten games of the season are against all division 2 and division 3 opponents so Trumbull should make a solid run at a state tournament bid.

Goaltender, Andrew Oxfeld has been solid between the pipes and the young Trumbull defensemen seem to be coming into their own.  Brian Sarosky and Matt Hyde have been consistantly good but will need some help from Matt Bragano, Andrew Kelly, John Pritts and Derek Dimasi down the stretch.

EAGLES SNAP LOSING STREAK

The Eagles snapped a four game losing streak which saw them face some of the state's toughest teams.  After losses to Fairfield, Immaculate, Xavier and Darien, Trumbull earned an important 5-3 victory over the Westhill Vikings who have been struggling without their best player, Andrew Flynn. 

The key moment of the game came with 14 seconds remaining in the second period.  The Eagles executed a key play off a defensive zone face off which sent Brian Sarosky in alone for the score.  On the following face off, Matt Hyde pressed and scored the eventual game winner with 3 seconds remaining.  Hyde scored an empty net goal for a 2 goal / 1 assist night.  Sarosky had a goal and 2 assists.  Freshman, Andrew Vietze scored his first goal as a Trumbull Eagle.

EAGLES GO 1-2 IN FCIAC CHRISTMAS TOURNAMENT

The Eagles went 1-2 in the FCIAC Christmas Tournament.  Trumbull showed flashes but were often unable to put together three periods of solid hockey.

Trumbull played a solid first period against Greenwich, with Anrew Kelly scoring the first goal of the game, but were badly out shot during the second and third periods.  They managed to hold on with some solid work from Andrew Oxfeld and entered the third period trailing 2-1.  The Eagles' inexperienced showed as they let up 4 third period goals (3 in the last few minutes).

THS rebounded with a 6-4 victory over Stamford.  Matt Bragano notched a hat-trick and linemates Brian Sarosky scored a goal and 3 assists and Andrew Kelly added 3 assists.  Trumbull was clearly in control from the start with a 3-0 first period but sloppy defensive play in the second let Stamford slip back and make it a game.

 The final game of the tournament ended in a 4-2 loss to highly regarded Fairfield HS.  Again, THS got off to a good start with two quick goals from Sarosky and Matt Hyde.  Fairfield was effective in getting the puck deep and taking advantage of the Eagle defense.  Although the shots were close throughout the game, Trumbull looked fatigued down the stretch and were unable to convert on a number of third period power plays.

Trumbull is now 2-2-0 with the toughest part of their schedule ahead.  They will travel to Danbury this Saturday to square off against Immaculate HS.

PRE-SEASON WRAP UP

The Eagles will open the 2007-2008 season this Wednesday at home against the Watertown / Pomperaug Co-op.   In preparation, Trumbull scrimmaged Daniel Hand HS, North Branford and participated in the jamboree hosted by The Rinks.

Trumbull lost to Hand, which scored two late third period goals, 4-1.  With senior, Jake Watson out of the line-up due to illness, the Eagle defense was made up of four freshmen and returning sophomore, Dale Elbert.  Andrew Oxfeld looked sharp but received little help from the Trumbull offense.

The offense looked better against North Branford but failed to capitalize on some good scoring opportunities.  Freshmen Andrew Vietze and Andrew Pierson put in solid performances and "Ox" again looked good giving up only one goal.  Junior, Stephen Anrico let up two.  Brian Sarosky's goal was the only tally as the Eagles fell 3-1.

Trumbull lost to Greenwich 1-0, tied Wilton 1-1 and lost to Watertown 2-0 in single period play during the Jamboree.  Again, the young defensemen and goaltenders played well but THS struggled to break out of their zone and failed to get enough pucks at the opposition net.

MILESTONE FOR WATSON
Watson

Senior defenseman, Nick Watson became Trumbull's "All-Time Defensive Scorer" with a four point outing against Norwalk High School.  It was fitting that the mark was set on an evening in which the Eagles recognized their senior class.  Watson entered the season with forty-four career points and added another twenty six points to finish the 2006-2007 season. His career total of seventy points (GP74 G24 A46 Pts70), surpasses Ryan Criscuolo ('06) who held the mark with sixty-five career points (GP62 G37 A28 Pts65). 

Nick has played a big part in the many successes of the Trumbull ice hockey program over the past four seasons.  Not only a top performer on the ice, Watson has been one of the finest leaders to ever wear a Trumbull uniform.

OFF TO A GOOD START
Despite losing five of their top forwards to graduation and starting goaltender to prep-school, the Trumbull Eagles are off to a good start with six wins and one loss in their first seven games.

Trumbull has relied heavily on seniors Nick Watson, Matt Christoffersen, Dan Miressi, Charlie McGill and Nick Davidson. Watson is easily Trumbull's most physical player, a rock solid defender and team leader. Christoffersen has excellent offensive instincts and his improved speed has made him tough in the defensive zone and dangerous on the point.  THS leading scorer, Miressi has carried the offense as a young crew of forwards develop. Charlie and Nick are among the Eagles most enthusiastic players providing physical, high energy shifts every time they hit the ice.

By far, the most pleasant surprise has been the play of junior goaltender, Andrew Oxfeld. "OX" has been very strong between the pipes and has played a big part in Trumbull's early success.

EAGLES BATTLE IN D1 SEMI-FINAL THRILLER
#11 TRUMBULL EAGLES vs #7 NOTRE DAME OF FAIRFIELD
It was a tough end to a great season as the Trumbull Eagles battled the Notre Dame Lancers in the D1 sem-final.  In front of a packed Ingalls Rink, the Eagles played their brand of tough, smart hockey to near perfection. 

After a slow start in the first period, the Eagles found themselves trailing 2-0. The team showed their trade mark tenacity by turning the tables on the Lancers with big hits and lots of offensive pressure in the second.  With two goals from senior, Ryan Kisken the game was tied up. James Devore assisted on both goals and Dan Miressi added a second assist.

Anchored again by Charlie Ogalin's play in net, the Eagles showed that they could move the puck, skate and be just as physical as their D1 opponent. A power play goal in the third period from Dan Miressi (James Devore added his third assist of the game) put the home team on top 3-2.  Notre Dame was forced to pull their goalie for the extra attacker and tied the game as the clocked ticked off the remaining minutes.

The fatigued Eagles ultimately fell in OT but it was an inspiring performance.  The Trumbull skaters proved that they belonged among the elite programs and could compete with the state's very best.  We are all very proud of the team's accomplishments.

The 11th seeded Eagles shocked the 3rd seeded Blue Wave with a 3-0 victory in the CIAC D1 quarter final. 

Anchored behind Charlie Ogalin's outstanding play (34 saves) in net, the Eagles were able to generate some more offense than they had in the teams' first two meetings. Trumbull's physical play frustrated the talented Darien forwards, forcing turnovers and causing them to take undisciplined penalties.

Dan Miressi opened the scoring with a power play goal from James Devore and Ryan Kisken.  Jordan Kennedy notched a short handed goal from Chris Hinesley and Charlie McGill.  Kisken closed the door on Darien with an unassisted goal with about a minute remaining in the second period.

At 12-4-0, the 2006 Trumbull Eagles are closing in on the regular season win mark.  The best regular season record (13-7-0) was set by the class of 2004.  The most wins overall was set by last year's squad at 15 as they advanced to the CIAC finals.  Both marks are well within the grasp of the 2006 Eagles.  

James Devore (1g + 3a) and Dan Miressi (4g) both registered four points in Trumbull's 6-5 win over Staples pushing them closer to some individual marks.  Devore needs 15 more points to join a select group of Trumbull skaters that have notched 100 career points.  Miressi is also in pursuit of 100 points, scoring lead for area skaters and the single season goal mark.

EAGLES LOOK TO GET BACK ON TRACK
Goalie

It was a tough two week stretch as Trumbull squared off against the FCIAC's best in games with Darien, New Canaan and Ridgefield.

Trumbull brought little intensity or physical play as they fell to 5th ranked Darien 6-3.  After a 7-0 victory over a rebuilding Westhill team, the Eagles played an excellent game against New Canaan but could not get the calls nor the bounces and eventually fell 4-2 in a heartbreaker.  Trumbull dropped the third of four games 5-2 as they were outplayed by  the state's top point getter, Ridgefield.

The Eagles kicked off the first game of a lighter stretch with a lack-luster effort against Wilton.  Trumbull's inability to move the puck, refusal to take the body and poor positioning nearly cost them the game as they squeaked out a 3-1 win over the Warriors. 

The season winds down with some very winnable games including a tough home match up with Chesire (02/15) and a road game against Immaculate (02/20) which represent Trumbull's last chance for that quality Division I victory that has eluded them this season.  The Eagles are currently 10-4-0.

Trumbull has qualified for tournament play five of the last seven seasons and looks to make their first appearance in the D1 pool under the new playoff format. Their overall record is now 8-1-0.

The Eagles qualified with a come from behind victory over the Greenwich Cardinals.  The offense struggled early on as they tried to break down Greenwich goalie, John Rogers, who was sharp all game. After wasting numerous power play chances, Trumbull found themselves trailing 2-0 going into the final period.  The Cardinals undisciplined play finally caught up with them as the Eagles connected on three consecutive PP goals from Nick Watson, Matt Christoffersen and James Devore.  Dan Miressi closed out the game with an empty netter and two assists.

The Eagle offense has also been up to speed, scoring 26 goals (from ten different players) in Trumbull's first five games.  Leading the way has been junior, Dan Miressi, with 10 goals and 5 assists.  Miressi notched a hat-trick, as well as an assist, in Trumbull's big win over Greenwich.

RECORD BREAKING SENIOR NIGHT
Snoopy
The Trumbull Eagles wrapped up the regular season Wednesday night with a 6-3 win over Stamford. This was Trumbull's ninth consecutive victory, breaking the eight game unbeaten streak set back in 2002-2003. The Eagles' run saw the home team outscore their opponents 57-11. Trumbull finished the season 12-8-0 and look forward to FCIAC and CIAC tournament play.

It was fitting the record be snapped on a night when the Trumbull hockey program honored its senior class. Co-Captain, Patrick Devore, Alternate Captain, Bryan Schrimmer, Jeff Ogalin, Dan Kline and Andrew Christman have all contributed to this season's success and to the team's many accomplishments of the past few years.

Another team record was also set in the game as junior, co-captain, Ryan Criscuolo scored two goals to become the Eagles' all time leading defensive scorer with 58 career points. The past career point mark of 57 was set by defenseman, Carl Slavis (class of 1995).

EAGLES QUALIFY FOR TOURNAMENT!
The Trumbull Eagles qualified for the CIAC state tournament for the fourth time in five years with a 5-2 win over the Norwalk Bears. The win was Trumbull's seventh consecutive victory. Earlier in the week, the Eagles beat up on the Fairfield Mustangs 7-2 for their ninth win. Trumbull has two home games (Wilton 2/14 & Stamford 2/16) remaining in which to improve their positioning for both the CIAC and FCIAC tournaments.

EAGLES CONTINUE TO SOAR
Oh My Head
The Trumbull Eagles closed out Amity 8-1 this past saturday to even out their record to 8-8-0. Trumbull needs two more wins to qualify for the state tournament and will face Fairfield, Norwalk, Wilton and Stamford in their final four games. Lately, the Eagles have been getting scoring from all three forward lines. The offensive explosion against Amity saw half the goals coming from Trumbull defensemen. Matt Christoffersen and Marty Lizotte each notched their first goal of the season. Captain, Ryan Criscuolo, hammered home two. This was Ryan's second consecutive two goal game, earning him the Connecticut Post's "Male Athlete of the Week" honors. The Amity victory represented Trumbull's fifth win in a row. The winning streak has seen the Eagles outscore their opponents 29-3 collectively.

MIRESSI HELPS SNAP LOSING STREAK
Sophomore, Dan Miressi, scored two third period goals to give Trumbull a 2-0 victory over Watertown (6-3-1). Watertown goaltender, Eric Tietz, frustrated the Eagles who out shot the Warriors 38-23. Missing some early opportunities, the Trumbull skaters found themselves dead-locked at zero with one period to play. Miressi, always dangerous around the net, finally cracked the Watertown goaltending, chipping in two with strong support from James and Patrick Devore. Charlie Ogalin pitched his first shut-out of the season. The Trumbull defense also played well, especially in the final minutes with the Warriors pushing hard to close the gap.

MARK MESSIER VISITS EAGLES!
Messier
The Trumbull Eagles recently got a surprise visit from hockey legend, Mark Messier. The Ranger star, who was at the rinks to watch his nephew, popped into the THS locker room just prior to their game with Staples HS. Messier shook hands and chatted with Trumbull players and coaches. Before leaving, he signed a poster of himself celebrating a goal during the Rangers memorable 1994 Stanley Cup victory. The Eagles beat the Wreckers 6-0.

TRUMBULL DROPS SEVEN IN A ROW
Ouch
The Eagles have struggled through the first part of their tough conference schedule with seven straight losses. The Trumbull skaters fell to New Canaan (twice), Greenwich (twice), Darien, Westhill and Ridgefield. The good news is that all seven losses were delivered by division 1 opponents and that Trumbull only has one division 2 loss so far this season. In fact, the Eagles found themselves in the third period of each game (excluding Darien & Ridgefield) within one goal of taking the lead. The bad news is that the home team could not close out any of these tight games and was a victim of inconsistent play.

FCIAC CHRISTMAS TOURNAMENT
The Eagles opened the Tier 1 Christmas tournament with a 3-2 win over Stamford. The win was highlighted by Charlie Ogalin's thirty-six saves. Chris Hinesley and Dan Miressi each had a goal and an assist.

Trumbull then faced off against FCIAC power, New Canaan. Although the Eagles skated well, they found themselves down 5-1 going into the third period. The Trumbull skaters never quit and answered back with three third period goals but eventually fell 6-4 to the Rams.

The home team did not show as well against Greenwich in the final game of the tournament. The Cardinals got off to an early 5-2 lead as the THS defense struggled and the offense failed to put pucks on the Greenwich net. Trumbull again came back in the third scoring two but gave up a bad angle power play goal and empty netter to end the game 7-4.

MIXED REVIEWS
The Eagles started the season with two decisive road wins beating New Fairfield 8-2 and Chesire 7-2. The Chesire game saw Trumbull dominate in the offensive zone and was highlighted by a James Devore hat-trick.

As good as the Eagles looked against the Rams, they were equally bad against North Branford. The T-Birds out skated, out hustled and out muscled the home team all night. Trumbull had difficulty moving the puck out their defensive zone, took (12) undisciplined penalties and failed to generate any shots until the third period.

Trumbull looks to rebound against Stamford, their first match up of the FCIAC Christmas tournament.

The Trumbull Eagles wish the class of 2004 continued success as all three graduating seniors head off to college. Good luck!
