The Hopkinton High School boys hockey team pulled out a 3-2 victory over visiting Westwood on Saturday in Marlborough as Pavit Mehra scored the deciding goal with 1:13 remaining.
Ronnie Shamus started the winning sequence when he faked a shot from the point and slid a pass to Mehra, who stepped up and fired a hard wrist shot for the finish.
Shamus also had a hand in the Hillers’ first goal. He fired a slap shot from just inside the blue line, and Geoff Tocco deflected the puck in the net late in the first half to tie the score.
The Hillers took a 2-1 lead with 15 minutes remaining when Joey Carrazza tipped in a Mehra shot.
Westwood tied the game with 5 1/2 minutes left on a two-man advantage. The Hillers then were down a player for another minute but were able to escape without further damage.
The Hillers next play at Holliston on Wednesday. …
