EXETER — It didn't take long to see that the Portsmouth High School hockey team was out of its league in its league opener Wednesday night.
The short-handed Clippers opened Division III play with an 8-2 loss to John Stark/Hopkinton at The Rinks. The score was 4-0 after one period and, though the mistakes were minimized and overall play improved after that, there was no question it was an uphill struggle.
"My big concern off the bat was if we didn't get out with a couple goals early we were going to lose some steam," said Portsmouth coach Al Brandano, "and that's what happened."
Junior Aaron Rancourt and freshman Luke Lacroce scored goals for the Clippers, who were outshot by a 46-16 margin on a night they were missing four players. Goalie Brady Marchewka made 38 saves.
