Pee Wee Predators: The Gateway Predators skated to a 2-2 tie against the SWS Chiefs. It is the second tie against the Chiefs in as many meetings. Once again the Predators found themselves trailing going into the third period. Down a goal, right off the faceoff, Quirino doCanto skated through the defense, passed over to Tyler Lovendale, who quickly fed his brother Zack for a nice goal. With the score now tied, the Predators kept the pressure on and scored as doCanto hit the puck out of midair on a rebound of Lovendale’s shot. The Predators then found themselves two men down and just couldn’t overcome being short handed. They gave up a late goal to bring the score to a tie and remained that way at the final buzzer. Alex DeMarco had an outstanding game in net, coming up with some great saves throughout the game. The Predators will play a double header Sunday at Hetland.
Pee Wee Warriors: For the second time in as many games, the Gateway Warriors found themselves playing from behind. Plymouth jumped out to a two-goal lead in the first period, before Robert Ramsay netted a pass from Jameson Woodward. Ramsay also scored unassisted, tying the game late in the second period.
The Warriors broke the game open with three unanswered goals in the third frame, allowing the team to move to 7-0, atop the Yankee Conference with the 5-2 win Sunday. Warrior leading goal scorer Danny Flynn had two goals, while Jake Demoranville scored one on his own. Zachary Barris notched his team leading sixth assist. RJ Vickery, Noah Demoranville, and Jackson St. Don each were credited with playmakers as well. Steven Strachan notched his fourth Warrior victory in net.
Middle School: The Wareham Jr Vikings 1 team had a tough loss to the North Devils White team on Friday night, 3-1. The Vikings started out strong with a goal by Zack Lovendale near the end of the first period. Good defensive play and some outstanding saves by goalie Teaghin Andre kept the net safe for nearly half the game. However, the Devils managed to score midway through the second, when a save by Andre on a breakaway rebounded behind the net and was volleyed back by their forward before Andre could recover. The Devils scored near the end of the second and again with two minutes left in the game, with a final score of Devils 3, Vikings 1. Captains were also chosen with Cameron DeMarco, Coleby Paling, Zack Lovendale, and Kaitlin Kelley getting the honors.
Gateway Youth ‘Try Hockey for Free Day’
Gateway Youth Hockey invites all boys and girls, ages 4-9, to the Try Hockey For Free clinic to experience ice hockey first hand and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment.
Try Hockey for Free Day is part of a USA Hockey and National Hockey League “Come Play Hockey Month,” part of a national platform to introduce kids to the sport.
“We’ve always been about getting more kids involved in the sport of hockey since we started Gateway Youth Hockey years ago; it’s a great team sport that helps build character in kids at a very young age,” said GYH President Ben Hathaway. “With this Try Hockey for Free Day, we’re hoping to introduce this great sport to a whole new group of children ready to take the next step and learn what sets ice hockey apart from other sports. They are the future of this sport.”
While GYH will have some equipment on hand for children to try, parents are encouraged to bring a helmet and skates if at all possible.
