HOOKSETT, N.H. — Overcoming adversity on the road was just the ticket the Hanover High boys hockey team needed to pick up a 4-3 win, in overtime, on Saturday night over Londonderry.

The host Lancers had a 2-0 lead in the second period and a 3-2 lead late in third. No matter, though, with Hanover picking up clutch goals to counter both of the deficits. John Hill and Casey Graham each found the back of the net later in the second to knot things up at 2-2.

Londonderry answered to retake the lead and held the lead until late in the third. Facing defeat, Jack Stadheim scored the necessary game-tying goal with just a minute left late in regulation to tie it up at 3-3 and force overtime.

Hanover then squandered a bit of momentum in OT, committing a five-minute major penalty. This time it was on the Hanover penalty killing squad to do its job, and the Lancers were stymied to preserve the tie. Stadheim then picked off a clearing pass, beat a Londonderry defender and found the back of the net to give Hanover its onlyl lead of the night.

“We faced all kinds of adversity and overcame it all. It’s a real character win for the team,” Hanover coach Dick Dodds said.

Stadheim, Curtis Rice and Alex Rockmore each had assists for Hanover (3-1-1). Londonderry falls to 4-2-0 with the loss. Hanover hosts Exeter at Campion on Tuesday night.

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — Madelyn Durkee had two goals to lead the Hurricanes (5-2-0) in a home win over the Bulldogs.

Brianna Roberts scored in the second period to break a 1-1 tie for the Canes. Durkee, a Thetford Academy student playing her third year with the Hurricanes, scored the first and third goals of the night for Hartford. Durkee was inserted into a regular spot on the second line for this one and delivered immediately with the two goals.

“It’s always a good feeling when you can give a spot to a kid who works her butt off every practice and rarely sees ice time. Madelyn has been stepping up in practice and in any shift she’s had in a game, and today was no different,” Hartford coach Kylie Ammel Young said. “She showed every girl on the team where hard work gets you.”

The Canes visit Brattleboro on Wednesday.
