HUDSON, N.H. — After a sloppy defensive night in a Saturday loss at BFA-St. Albans, the Hanover High girls hockey team built from the back to regain its winning ways. Nora Bradley had two goals to help Hanover bounce back with a 5-1 NHIAA Division I win over the Cardinals at Cyclones Arena on Tuesday night.

Maeve Lee had a hand in all five goals, scoring once and assisting on the other four. Gail Morse added a goal and an assist. Danielle Rudd also scored, and Lily Seelig had an assist. The goals by Rudd and Morse were each on the power play, and Bradley’s second came shorthanded.

“This was a nice team win that started with our effort in the defensive zone,” Hanover coach John Dodds said. “We were able to clean up some coverage problems we had in St. Albans on Saturday night, and it led to a few offensive opportunities we were able to capitalize on.”

Goalie Katie Smith had 23 saves for Hanover (9-2-1 overall, 9-1-1 NHIAA), which visits St. Mary’s (Lynn, Mass.) on Saturday.
