A showdown of two potential playoff contenders turned into a convincing victory in Tyngsboro on Wednesday night as Westford Academy defeated Tewksbury, 5-2.
Jay Drapeau contributed a pair of goals for the Grey Ghosts and was joined by Cam MacDonald, Cam Tetrault and Pat Houghton while the defending MIAA Division 2 Champions avoided the shutout thanks to scores from Ryan Petti and Chris Connors.
"It was a good win for us," said Westford Academy head coach Bob Carpenter, who expected a hard fought game. "The game was closer than the score indicates."
Westford climbed to 7-2-1 with the win and will attempt to continue their streak on Saturday against Hingham while Tewksbury will also hit the ice again on Saturday with a showdown against Lincoln-Sudbury in Marlboro.
