The Ridgefield High boys hockey team had its 10-game winning streak snapped by another team on a tear Monday night in Darien.
New Canaan scored three unanswered goals in the second period and went on to beat the Tigers, 4-1. It was the seventh victory in eight games for the Rams, who are now 9-4-2 overall.
Ridgefield dropped to 13-4 with its first loss since Jan. 5.
Following a scoreless first period, New Canaan got second-period goals from John McMahon, Ben Patch and Puck Richardson to take a 3-0 lead into the final period.
Richardson then added his second goal during a five-on-three power play early in the third to make it 4-0.
Ridgefield’s only goal came with just over four minutes left in the game when Henry Gough scored on an assist from Callan McCormick.
Dusty Rausa had 23 saves in goal for the Tigers, who were outshot 27-21.
