Having gone 1-3-1 over their previous five games, the Saugus Sachems scored a needed victory over the Somerville Highlanders in hockey action on Wednesday night at Kasabuski Arena. The 4-1 win was Saugus’s fifth win of the season.
Now sitting at 5-7-1 after Wednesday’s triumph, the Sachems still have their sights set on a postseason berth. Somerville had two wins coming into Wednesday’s contest. Both came against the Lynn Jets. Saugus beat Lynn in its season opener and had the second meeting postponed when the COVID-19 surge took place back in early January. The Sachems are scheduled to make that game up next Tuesday, Feb. 8, at Connery Rink in Lynn.
The Sachems have a busy stretch of games, playing three contests in five days. They host Winthrop at Kasabuski next Wednesday, then play Swampscott at the Salem State University rink next Friday. Saugus finishes off the trifecta when it faces Masconomet on Sunday, Feb. 13. Saugus defeated Swampscott 4-2 a few weeks back at Kasabuski.
