The Milton High boys hockey team (5-2) was on a role losing only to Norwood at the start of the season and looking to add another win to their record against the Wellesley Raiders on Saturday, January 14, at Babson College.
But Raiders goalie, Jack Maxwell, was on his game and only allowed Milton one goal.
John Murtagh would get Milton on the board tying the game at 13:37 of the third period, but Wellesley (3-4-2) would come right back with a score that would hold to the end, giving them the win 2-1.
Milton is still holding second place in the Herget Division behind Norwood.
Next up for the Wildcats will be on Wednesday, January 18, against Dedham. Start time is 7 p.m. at the Ulin Rink, Milton.
