SALEM, N.H. — The Hanover High boys hockey team got two goals and two assists each from Ryder Wilson and Jack Wilkinson and scored three times in the third period for a solid 5-2 road win against Salem, the third-ranked team in NHIAA Division I.

“Big third period propelled us to a second consecutive huge win,” said Dodds. “We got stronger as the game progressed. Shook off a lethargic first period (down 1-0) to come back strong in the third, potting three goals to break open 2-2 game. Boys found a way to win."
