Next up for the Rebels, a date with the Wellesley Raiders, who captured their initial contest of the season, defeating Burlington, 15-7. Hugh Callahan paced the Raiders with three goals and three assists, while Grant Chryssica added five points on four goals and one helper.
“We got off to a great start with Hugh Callahan scoring his first career goal,” Wellesley coach Rocky Batty said via email following his team’s opening day win. “Our first six goals were scored by five (different) players, and I’m really happy that most every goal was assisted.
“Our defense learned a ton (yesterday). I thought Burlington had some very good dodgers and shooters to go along with Coach Dan O’Brien‘s schemes. “Teddy Darcey played great, (he finished the contest) with 17 saves.”
