HARVARD — A very young Littleton team hung with Bromfield for a half, before the Trojans scored eight unanswered goals after intermission to pull away to an 11-1 victory.
“After not playing well in the first half, everyone came out and did the job in the second half,” said Bromfield coach Tom Hill. “We had nine different players score in the game, and the kids off the bench played well.”
Bromfield, which improved to 15-0-1 for the season, bolted to a 3-0 lead in the first half, before the Tigers scored a goal to draw to within 3-1 at halftime.
Sam Peisch put the Trojans on top ten minutes into the game, rolling a shot inside the left post after taking a pass from Scott Nussdorfer.
Three minutes later, Greg Wenger made it 2-0, fielding a through ball from Nussdorfer and netting a shot from close range.
Bromfield maintained the offensive momentum, upping the lead to 3-0 at 18:30. Josh Wright sent a perfect cross in front to Nussdorfer, who settled the ball and ripped a 15-yard shot into the net.
Littleton nearly got on the board at 28 minutes when Chris McDonald stole a clearing pass and fired a testing shot that was stopped by diving Bromfield goaltender Caleb Frost.
The Tigers broke through at 34:30 when Mike Joyce beat a Bromfield defender on right wing and sent a pass in front to Patrick Mealey, who slipped a shot from close range past Frost.
It was all Bromfield in the second half.
Peisch completed his hat trick with goals at 8:15, assisted by Lars Nordgreen, and 15:15, unassisted to make it 5-1.
At 20 minutes, Brian Mandozzi netted a shot after picking up a rebound to make it 6-1.
The Trojans finished off their strong second half with five goals in the final 15 minutes – Jeff Messina, unassisted, Dylan Gatto from Mandozzi, John Alexander from Cody Osgood, Osgood unassisted, and Matt Jones, unassisted. It was Jones’ first varsity goal.
