Pee Wee Predators: The Gateway Predators skated to a 1-1 tie against the Southcoast Panthers B team. It was a grueling battle with no scoring by either team until the third period. In a shortened third period, the Panthers got on the board with a back door pass to a wide open player who snuck it by Zack Pateakos with about 1:30 left in the period. With 1 minute remaining, the decision was made to pull Pateakos to get the extra skater. The move paid off about 30 seconds later when the Predators netted the tying goal. It came when Seth Tomasik held the blue line a ripped of a hard wrist shot that was knocked down in front of the net by Quirino DoCanto and quickly put in the back of the net. The tandem of Alex DeMarco and Pateakos kept the Panthers at bay allowing the one goal on numerous shots.
Pee Wee Warriors: Hobomock hosted a meeting of the only remaining undefeated Yankee Conference Pee Wee teams, as the Gateway Warriors met up with Pembroke. The Warriors were playing from behind until Robert Ramsay found the back of the net with less than five minutes to play in the first period. Ninety seconds later, Ramsay would add the eventual game-winner as the Warriors trounced Pembroke by a score of 7-1. Ramsay capped a stellar demonstration of “team-hockey” with three assists, establishing himself as the Warrior’s first “playmaker” of the season. Danny Flynn added two goals and a pair of assists, while linemate Zachary Barris scored his first career goal. Noah Demoranville and Jared Westgate also added goals. Jake Demoranville had two assists and his brother, Ben, had one. Goalies Zachary Pateakos and Steven Strachan continue to be outstanding in net, and shared the Warrior victory
Middle School: The game started off well with the teams battling it out at both ends of the ice. Westwood got on the board first, scoring a goal at the 11-minute mark. Goalie Steven Strachan fought off several more attempts, but a second goal squeaked by on a ricochet. Vittorio Consoletti quickly answered with a goal of his own, assisted by Quirino DoCanto, score 2-1. Two more goals were made by Westwood before Consoletti found the net again, with a powerful top shelf goal. Westwood scored another goal just before goalie Teaghin Andre came in to relieve the beleaguered but valiant Strachan, who fended off nearly twenty shots. Andre and the rest of the team faced the same assault, with another twenty shots attempted on net. Two Westwood goals were recorded before Viking forward Vyper Latulippe scored on a breakaway, bringing the score to 7-3. The Vikings continued to battle, getting into scoring position many times, but time and a final goal by Westwood sealed the deal: Westwood 8-Vikings 3.
