Valley News – Local rally: Hanover men’s hockey rally for overtime victory


HOOKSETT, NH – Overcoming adversity on the road was exactly the ticket the Hanover High men’s hockey team needed to clinch a 4-3 overtime victory over Londonderry on Saturday night.

The Lancers host had a 2-0 lead in the second period and a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the third. It doesn’t matter, however, with Hanover picking up clutch targets to counter both deficits. John Hill and Casey Graham each found the back of the net later in the second to tie things up at 2-2.

Londonderry responded to regain the lead and held the lead until the end of the third. Faced with defeat, Jack Stadheim scored the necessary tying goal one minute from the end of regulation time to tie at 3-3 and force overtime.

Hanover then wasted some momentum in overtime, committing a major penalty of five minutes. This time it was up to Hanover’s penalty shoot-out team to do their job, and the Lancers were blocked to preserve the tie. Stadheim then caught a clear pass, beat a Londonderry defender and found the back of the net to give Hanover their only lead of the night.

“We faced all kinds of adversities and got through it all. It’s a real win of character for the team, ”said Hanover coach Dick Dodds.

Stadheim, Curtis Rice and Alex Rockmore each collected assists for Hanover (3-1-1). Londonderry falls to 4-2-0 with the loss. Hanover welcomes Exeter to Campion on Tuesday evening.
