Coaches’ quotes: “We’ve had a couple of one-goal games that haven’t gone our way this season, so it’s great to see the team come together and get a win in a close game like this. I’m proud of the effort we put in, it will give us some confidence going forward.” – Concord’s Kate Billings

“We played an outstanding game today. Nothing was left on the ice. Kacey played another incredible game with 26 saves. Our defense (captains Meghan Schmidt and Kylie Palmeter) gave it their all while captain Finley Hollenberg and Ali Pelletier anchored down our offense.” – BLT’s Dan Earley

Records: Concord 2-3; BLT 2-5

Records: BGK 6-0; Concord 2-4
