On Sunday, the Grizzlies traveled to Charles Moore Arena and skated to a 5-5 tie in their first game in the Cape League. Chris Gauvin scored a hat trick all unassisted and Robert Maloney and Matt Quinlan each had a goal and an assist. Ryker King did an excellent job in the goal.
Pee Wee Warriors: The Warriors knew they’d have their work cut out for them on Sunday, as they met the undefeated Pee Wee team from Milton. Gateway got some early good fortune as the Milton team scored first … in their own net! Ben DeMoranville would score unassisted later in the first period. The Warriors found themselves up 3-0 early in the second period as Dan Flynn scored a goal, assisted by both Jake DeMoranville and Jackson St. Don. However, the Warriors seemed to deviate from the game plan and Milton took advantage, scoring the next two goals. It wasn’t until late in the third period that the Warriors found some comfort, coming on the heels of Ben DeMoranville’s second goal of the game. Defensive play continues to be a key element to the Warriors success. Robert Ramsay, Jared Westgate, Jameson Woodward, and Jackson St. Don each played impressive two-way hockey. While Alex DeMarco was outstanding in net during his portion of the game, holding Milton scoreless. DeMarco has yet to be scored upon as a Warrior!
Middle School: Matt Maloney found the net early in the game, assisted by Vittorio Consoletti and Coleby Paling. Soon after, Maloney returned the favor, assisting Consoletti and bringing the score to 2-0 Vikings. With just 30 seconds left in the first period, Norton managed to slip the puck past goalie Steven Strachan. Norton came out firing in the second period, scoring three goals. Maloney managed a second goal, but it was quickly answered by Norton. The second period ended with Norton ahead 5-3. Wareham worked to stem the tide in the third period, with a breakaway goal by Consoletti. Makayla Wood scored her first middle school goal, assisted by Lovendale and Vyper LaTulippe, to tie up the game. But a breakaway goal got by goalie Teaghin Andre finally put Norton in the lead, with a final score of 6-5.
