WOONSOCKET -- Victories don't get any bigger than this one.
For the second time in seven days, Mount St. Charles defeated Bishop Hendricken, and Friday night's 4-2 victory at Adelard Arena allowed the Mounties to clinch their regular-season series with the Hawks.
The Mounties, who dropped a 4-0 verdict to Hendricken earlier in the season, and last Saturday, pinned a 3-1 win over the Hawks at Thayer Arena, improved to 8-2, while the Hawks slipped to 9-2.
If both teams end up running the table on their regular-season schedules, then the Mounties will earn the top seed in the Division I-Cimini playoffs over the defending champion Hawks because of the head-to-head tiebreaker.
The star of this game was undoubtedly goalie Brian Larence, who turned away 47 shots in arguably one of the best performances of his high school career. The Mounties were outshot 49-23, yet found a way to get the job done.
And the story of the game was the return of senior Brian Belisle, the top point-getter in the division last year, to the lineup. Belisle had been out since the season opener with a Grade 2 concussion, but he came back and contributed a pair of assists, both on goals by Dan Glod.
Glod gave the Mounties a 1-0 lead 5:35 into the game, and Tyler Scroggins doubled the winner's lead with 1:37 left in the second period with his team-best 12th goal of the season.
With 7:10 to play in the game, the Hawks got on the board, but Mount countered with goals by Patrick Holmes 11 seconds later and Glod with 3:05 left in the contest.
The win was the third straight for Mount, which will visit Smithfield at the Smithfield Municipal Rink tonight at 7 p.m.
