Knight-Wizards power past Narragansett

January 3, 2013

WEST WARWICK – Narragansett boys hockey coach Chris Lussier had seven simple words for his team moments before the start of Wednesday’s game against undefeated West Warwick/Exeter-West Greenwich.
“Make them beat you,” he said, “five on five.”
The message went unheard.
West Warwick/Exeter-West Greenwich converted three power plays in the first two periods into three quick goals while the Mariners converted only one all game – and it came when things were well in hand - in the Knight-Wizards’ 4-1 win Wednesday at Magiera Memorial Ice Rink Wednesday night.
