The best thing about BFA-St. Albans’ buzzer-beating, 49-47 win over Missisquoi on December 23rd wasn’t the shock of MVU roaring out to a double-digit lead in the first half. Nor was it the pandemonium in the BFA gymnasium as the Bobwhites rallied – pandemonium that made Patrick Gym in March seem like a Tuesday night men’s league game at the Y.

Missisquoi exploded for five goals in the second period to take a second straight win in the form of a 6-3 victory over St. Johnsbury. Hunter Mason notched a hat trick and an assist in the effort for MVU.
