The Blades (Amity/Cheshire/North Haven) Girls Ice Hockey team hosted the Simsbury Trojans in Shelton on Saturday.

It was Senior Night, which is always special for the girls who will be graduating this year. So another win for the home team would have been the icing on the cake. But Simsbury’s Grace Melanson (#22) had her own plans. Melanson not only had a hat trick (3 goals in one game) but exceeded it with an additional two. Five goals in one game is incredible, and three of them were unassisted.

NOTE: This is truly an amazing feat, The list of NHL players who’ve accomplished 5 or more goals in one game fits on one page. The majority are Canadian, but from what I could find one American, Mark Pavelich (Retired) of the New York Rangers did it on February 23, 1983.

First Period

At 11:30 Melanson put the Trojans on the scoreboard assisted by Stephanie Rurka. At 7:21 the Blades’ Tess Csejka tied the game assisted by Meghan Hogan.

The Blades pulled ahead with Haley Cable’s unassisted goal at 2:48. That looked good for the home team until Simsbury’s Kate Werle smacked one in with just 1 second remaining as the buzzer sounded. Everyone held their breath for a few minutes to see if the point counted. and – it – did. Score: 2-2.

Second Period

The second period belonged to Melanson who scored two unassisted goals for Simsbury, one at 10:28 and the second at 8:30. Score 4-2 Simsbury.

Third Period

Simsbury came out strong in the third period with Melanson again being first to score, this time within the first 5 minutes, she was assisted by Kaley Melanson and Elise Hildebrandt.

Meghan Hogan (coincidentally also #22) scored for the Blades unassisted at 5:30.

Then, it was Melanson’s turn again, scoring her fifth goal for the Trojans at 4:51. One minute later, her teammate Claire Bettor made a goal.

Wrapping things up, Melissa Montesi shot one in for the Blades with 3:15 remaining.

Final Score: 7-4 Simsbury

Record: Blades 12-4
