Pee Wee Predators: The Gateway Predators were back in action on Sunday, matching up against the SWS Chiefs. The Predators came out on a mission, scoring early in the first period with a goal by Zack Lovendale, assisted by Quirino doCanto. They kept the pressure on and managed to catch a break when a deflected pass found the stick of Kaleb Riggle and sent him in on a break-away. Riggle beat the goalie with a nice wrist shot high blocker side. A few minutes later, defenseman Bryan Gallagher pulled off some fancy stickwork, dangling through a couple Chiefs, then roofed a backhand past the goalie. There was no scoring in the second as the Predators seemed to lose some intensity with the comfortable lead. The third period was won by SWS, but the Predators did enough to win the game 4-2 as Riggle added another goal. Alex DeMarco played solid in net to earn the victory. The Predators will head to Orleans next Sunday to start their playoffs against Lower Cape.
Pee Wee Warriors: The Gateway Warriors scored three goals in the first period, which was just enough to defeat the Coastal Stars, 3-2. Zachary Pateakos made some great saves in the Warrior net, while Jackson St. Don, Robert Ramsay, and Ben DeMoranville provided the goal scoring. Zachary Barris was credited with his tenth assist of the season.
