Following a three week layoff from competition, the HBS Blades returned to action on Sunday night to face an unknown team from NESL (New England School of Law). In spite of a depleted roster, including the absence of three of the team’s top scorers, the Blades managed to pull out a 7-5 victory. Ken Grahame (OA), who regained his scoring touch in the final at Tuck, led the team with a pair of goals. Five other players contributed in the scoring, including Tomas Persson (NG), Mark MacTavish (OC), Noah Charney (NF), Rob Masson (OB) and Phil Cowley (NE).
But it was not the offense statistics that ruled the day, instead it was the spectacular play of the team’s burrito-fueled goalie Ben Heller. Time and time again, Heller bailed out the team with crucial saves against a potent NESL attack. Secretly, the team assumed his inspired play was due to his recent engagement to second year Amanda Key (OA).
Looking forward, the Blades schedule heats up with two games next week against Babson as they prepare to host 7 other business schools in the McArthur Cup on the weekend of March 28-30.
