Elite forward from New York joins 2019 recruit class; Women top Ohio State

The Terriers brought home more than the Kelley-Harkness Trophy from their New York City visit. 2001 birthdate Robert Mastrosimone, a prolific, quick scorer and playmaker from E. Islip, NY, who is now skating for Shattuck St. Mary’s (Boys Bantam), committed to BU Sunday. The left-shot forward, who currently has a 32-32-64 scoring line in 29 games for the SSM Bantams, joins Selects Academy forward Joel Farabee in BU’s 2019 recruit class.
Last season, Matrosimone was a standout playing for the Long Island Royals Bantam Major 2000s and scored the championship-winning goal in a shootout at the Buffalo Super Series .

At the the World Selects Invite in June, he was the #7 ranked forward (Farabee was #4) by U.S. Hockey Report:
7. Robert Mastrosimone (#94, Hockey Essentials) Shattuck St-Mary's, 5-8/140 '01 -- The only '01 in the tournament had quite a showing. The East Islip, NY native posted a 4-1-5 scoring line in the play-in game against the East Coast Quebec team. A truly dynamic player with four-way skating ability and remarkable vision, Mastrosimone likes to work from below the goal line on the power play, and is a dangerous playmaker from that area. Will be a top player on a very strong team at Shattuck in the upcoming season. (4-3-7, 6 GP)
Then, in August at the 2015 SFX 68 in Chicago, Mastrosimone earned a spot on OTB’s list of the top seven 2001 forwards at the event:
01 F Robert Mastrosimone – Shattuck-St. Mary’s U14—Dynamic, buzzing forward with good acceleration. Skates well, quick hands, reads the goaltender well and not afraid to fire it. Has a quick shot that can punish, could have some more accuracy but was trying to beat well-framed goaltenders to the corners and went just high/wide a few times. His shots are tricky for keepers because he usually has some speed behind the puck and releases darts quickly. His quickness and effort level help him recover pucks and play a two-way game. His burst allowed him to enter the zone with ease here. Like the others who played ‘00s last year, he was a step faster, processed it a few steps faster, and his scoring sense was more refined. Didn’t fade in game 3 energy-wise like most players did, hit the ice like he was fired out of a cannon. Shoots left.

► BU 2018 recruits Jake Wise and Tyler Weiss participated in the 2014 SFX event, which brings together the top 68 U.S. Bantam players.

Looking ahead
2016 recruit Dante Fabbro assisted on three goals in Penticton’s 8-1 rout of the Trail Smoke Eaters, upping his points total to 37 in 22 games. The right-shot defenseman has recorded points in 19 games for the BCHL’s leading team.

At the Silver Sticks Tournament, 2018 recruit Tyler Weiss scored a goal in Don Mills 5-1 win against the London Jr. Knights and then scored the Flyers’  only goal in a 1-1 tie with the Barrie Colts.

Women’s Team
On the strength of two third-period goals by sophomore Victoria Bach, BU defeated Ohio State in the second round of the Windjammer Classic in Burlington, Vermont.  The Terriers opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period, on goals by captain Kayla Tutino and sophomore Rebecca Leslie.

The teams traded goals in the second period, with Sarah Lefort scoring for BU, and Bach’s first goal two minutes into the final period stretched the lead to 4-1. The Buckeyes responded with two scores in 92 second to cut the margin to one, before Bach provided some breathing room—and the game’s final goal—on a power play.

Bach, who also recorded two assists, was the game’s first star, while sophomore Erin O’Neil turned aside 26 shots to earn the win.
