Assistant Captain Blake Thompson sets up a play for the Patriots Nov. 16 during Fort Dorchester’s game with Greenville North.

Led by its captains, Fort Dorchester earned a 5-3 victory over Greenville North in high school hockey action Nov. 16.
Captain Julian DiPaolo and Assistant Captain Justin LeBlanc both had a pair of goals as the Patriots edged past the G Force. Assistant Captain Blake Thompson led the Fort defense and had an assist at the other end of the ice.
The Force (1-3) got on the scoreboard first early in the opening period, but the Patriots (4-1) tied the game with a goal by LeBlanc with 1:32 remaining in the period. Patrick McCardle picked up his first of two assists on the evening by passing to LeBlanc on the play.
Midway through the second period, LeBlanc weaved his way through multiple defenders and sent a shot into the net for a 2-1 Patriot advantage.
The Force answered quickly by scoring two goals in the next two minutes to take a 3-2 lead into the final period.
But the Patriots did all the scoring in the third. Thompson passed to DiPaolo, who worked his way through a crowd to score with 11:14 remaining. DiPaolo put the Patriots up for good with his goal at the 5:13 mark.
Roughly two minutes later, senior Jacob John was in position to get a deflection and send the puck into the net for the 5-3 margin.
Todd Braga, Brandon Doss, Chandler Murphy and LeBlanc also had an assist in the game.
Patriot goalie Dylan Belida had 12 saves in the game. Sawyedr Caldwell, Cole Rossi and Noah Skeans had the Greenville goals while Rossi and Quinn Gurn picked up assists for the Force.
