    2020 - 2021
    Head Coach: Alan Thompson

    Holderness Hockey dates back to the early 1900’s and the school has always embraced the game the way it is supposed to be played: outdoors in the elements with a focus on toughness, grit, speed, and enthusiasm. We compete in the Lakes Region conference of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference and play a 30-35 game schedule against some of the top competitors in New England. Holderness plays in a new open-air arena, which was constructed in 2015 and prepares for competition in a newly renovated training facility and locker room. Our season usually stretches from mid-November until the first of March.

    With a strong passion for keeping hockey outdoors in the beauty, serenity, and vigor of a cold New England winter, and with a keen sense of the importance of work ethic, perseverance, and the joys of the competitive spirit, Holderness hockey players leave with a true sense of what the game was created for. Recent alumni have played at NCAA Division I institutions such as St. Lawrence, UNH, Clarkson, Brown, UVM, Colgate, Holy Cross, Niagara, and Army.

  • Bulls drop season opener to St. Paul's 4-2

    Alan Thompson
    Holderness hockey was excited to kick off the 2020-2021 season after a long anticipated wait due to some cancelations from covid restrictions.  The Bulls traveled down interstate 93 to take on St. Paul's in the first game of a home and home weekend series.  The first period was back and forth with each team trading chances until St. Paul's was finally able to get on the board with two quick ones making it 2-0 after the 1st period.  In the 2nd period, St. Paul's struck again going up 3-0.  A few minutes later, the Bulls took control of the game scoring back to back goals and dominating the last 10 minutes of the period heading into the 3rd down 3-2.  Both Bulls goals were 1st career goals for junior defensemen Jack Hutchins and Cooper Warrington.  The Bulls started the 3rd period on the powerplay and couldn't come up with the equalizer.  St. Paul's was able to extend the lead to 4-2 half way through the third period. The Bulls had a few breakaway chances to try and cut the lead to one, but couldn't capitalize.  It was a hard fought, tough battle ending in a 4-2 loss.  Evan Plunkett stopped 34 of 38 St. Paul's shots and Junior forward Nick Messina picked up 2 assists in the losing effort. The Bulls return to action at home vs. St. Paul's on Saturday.

  • Bulls swept by St. Paul's with 6-4 loss

    Alan Thompson
    In a game riddled with penalties, St. Paul's was able to capitalize on lots of offensive chances and best the Bulls 6-4 Sat afternoon at Fiore Rink in the 2nd game of the weekend series. Both Holderness and St. Paul's could not stay out of the penalty box and much of the game was spent on special teams.  After a good start by the Bulls in the first few minutes of the game, St. Paul's reeled off 5 straight goals through the 1st and 2nd period going up 5-0.  It was good mental test for Holderness to see how hard they would fight when facing some adversity early in the season. Holderness struck late in the 2nd to cut the lead to 5-1 heading into the final frame on the 1st career goal by Freshman Jake Boulanger.  Early in the 3rd, the Bulls cut the lead to 5-2 on the 2nd goal of the game by Freshman Jake Boulanger.  With lots of momentum on their side as the Bulls attempted the comeback effort, St. Paul's scored a crushing goal to make the game 6-2 midway through the 3rd.  The Bulls still did not quit, and were able to make a game of it by cutting the lead to 6-4 on back to back powerplay goals from Junior Cooper Boulanger and Senior Jake Waterman.  The Bulls hit a few posts late in the comeback effort, but could not tie the game.  The Bulls will look to get their first win of the season next weekend when they travel to Brewster on Friday. Senior netminder Ryan McNamara stopped 26 of 32 St. Paul's shots and Freshman Jake Boulanger paced the Bulls offense with 2 goals and 1 assist in the losing effort.
