Mike Palermo recorded his first career hat trick to lead the Chicopee Varsity Hockey team to a 6-3 victory over Wahconah Regional on Saturday. The Pacers found the back of the net four times in the opening frame to chase the Warriors netminder after one period.
Palermo also added three assists for six total points, a point total that was matched by Ryan McDonough who had a goal and assisted on all five of the Pacers other goals. Spencer Clark lit the lamp two more times for the visiting Pacers to provide the six total goals.
Meanwhile, Kelsey Czerniawski improved to 3-1-1 in the pipes this season, saving 23 of 26 shots on goal.
The Pacers will next take to the ice on Saturday when they will host Ludlow High School at Smead Arena at 2 pm.
