Dighton-Rehoboth/Seekonk and Somerset Berkley didn’t settle anything when they met Wednesday night, skating to a tie in their only meeting of the South Coast Conference regular season.
They will get another crack at it next week — and this time, there is guaranteed to be a winner, somehow and some way. Both teams advanced to the championship game of the inaugural South Coast Conference tournament with wins Saturday.
Evan Affonso scored the first of his two goals less than six minutes into the game, and though Somerset Berkley never trailed, the Raiders had to sweat it out before securing a 4-3 victory over Old Rochester/Fairhaven at Driscoll Rink in Fall River.
Josh Pacheco doubled the Raiders’ lead before the end of the period, then Affonso and Davis Sullivan added goals in the second period as Somerset Berkley maintaining its two-goal edge, 4-2. ORR/Fairhaven got one back on a wild scramble in front of the net during a 6-on-4 power play in the final minute, but couldn’t manage the equalizer.
* At the New England Sports Village in Attleboro, D-R/Seekonk used five power play goals to take care of Bourne, 7-2.
Colten Nastar led a balanced scoresheet for the Falcons with a pair of goals. Wyatt Nastar, Devin Dailey, Carter Foley, Liam Fecteau and Noah Bastis had the other goals.
Dailey had the lone goal in the first period, then it was 4-0 after two on goals from Foley, Colten Nastar and Fecteau. Colten Nastar, Bastis and Wyatt Nastar pushed the lead to 7-0 before the Canalmen finally got a late pair from Ty Kelley and Joziah DeSouza.
The SCC title game is tentatively slated for Wednesday at NESV.
