LYNDON -- The Burr and Burton Academy boys hockey team picked up its third win of the season in a 6-2 takedown of Lyndon Institute on Saturday.

Jack Ams struck twice for BBA in the win, while Max Ingison, Nolan Johnson, Nate Eisenman and James Doherty all chipped in with one goal for the Bulldogs. Zdenek Sindelar had three assists for BBA in the win.

The Bulldogs had to navigate a close opening period before pulling away, as Lyndon Institute trailed only 2-1 after 15 minutes of play. The Bulldogs, though, would score three in the second to take control of the contest.

Julian Woodrow made 12 saves in net for BBA, including a couple of key saves in the second period when the game was still 2-1.

Coach Joe Ferrara also pointed to the impact of Johnson, who was moved to a defenseman, in the Bulldogs' win.

"He has made a huge difference," Ferrara said. "He has really given us a lot of stability back there."

BBA moves to 3-13 with the win, and returns to action on Wednesday against Brattleboro.
