Hornets hold strong

Twelve games into the season and the Hornet boys’ hockey team still remains undefeated. While none of their games have been complete blowouts, prime goaltending by Erik Short – who had 23 saves in the game against CVU on Jan. 17 – has certainly helped the Essex team maintain their untainted record. The team has nine more games left in the regular season. The Hornets played Rutland on Wednesday and will host Rice on Friday.
