Mites – The Mite Bobcats lost a pair of games this weekend. The hard-working team lost to Nantucket 9 to 4 but paced a much closer game against Martha’s Vineyard, losing 19-18. Leading scorers were Juni Suarez, Derek Gauvin and Trendyn Medeiros and Michael Radek. Great defense by Brayden Cannon and Brayden Hathon.
Squirt Grizzlies – The Squirt Grizzlies defeated YD 5-1 in a Cape League game at Tony Kent arena on Saturday, Chris Gauvin had a hat trick and Tyler Lovendale and Matt Quinlan each added a goal. Ryker King was solid in net to earn the win. The Grizzlies face off against Duxbury in Hyannis next Sunday 1/12 at 8:40am.
Pee Wee Warriors – Steven Strachan earned the shutout against Weymouth as the Gateway Warriors rang in the New Year with a 4-0 victory Jan. 1. Jared Westgate, Jackson St. Don, and Noah DeMoranville played strong defensively, as the Warriors were again forced to rotate only three blue-liners throughout the entire game. Westgate also led his team offensively, finishing with two goals. Robert Ramsay assisted Jake DeMoranville’s one-timer, netting his ninth goal of the season. DeMoranville also tallied his ninth assist of the season, while brother Ben scored unassisted.
An excellent team-effort led the Gateway Warriors to their 15th Yankee Conference win Jan. 5th, downing the Lower Cape Coyotes, 5-1. Ben DeMoranville led Warrior scoring with two goals and an assist. Robert Ramsay also netted a pair of goals. Jared Westgate and Jameson Woodward each chipped in with two assists. Danny Flynn scored his team-leading fifteenth goal, while Warrior leading playmaker Jake DeMoranville added his tenth assist of the season. Zachary Barris also had an assist. Westgate, Beth Davis, Noah DeMoranville, and Jackson St. Don limited Coyote scoring opportunities, while both Zachary Pateakos and Steven Strachan made some great saves in net for the Warriors. After the game, Lower Cape’s head coach complimented the Warrior effort, saying the team did a great job getting to the puck and winning its battles.
Pee Wee Predators – The Gateway Predators faced the first place Nantucket team in Sunday double header.
The first game was nothing to write home about as the Predators came out a little sluggish. Although a couple of the Nantucket scores came after missed offside calls, the Predators never got it going offensively, so it didn’t make much difference. Alex DeMarco played well in net and the score of 6-0 hardly reflected the effort put out by DeMarco.
In the second game, the Predators woke up and played the hockey they were capable of playing. The Predators jumped on the board in the first period on a goal from Tyler Lovendale, assisted by Quirino doCanto. The score remained 1-0 until early in the second period when Zack Lovendale put the Predators up by two on assists from doCanto and brother Tyler. Unfortunately, Nantucket made a furious comeback and took over the lead late in the second period. With about eight minutes left in the third period, Zack Lovendale netted his second goal of the game on a feed from defenseman, Coleby Paling. It was 3-3 until there were four minutes left when Nantucket snuck a wrap around in by goalie Zack Pateakos, who had an outstanding performance in net, turning away multiple break aways. Overall, it was probably one of the best games the Predators had played all season, but just came up short. They will play the second Nantucket team next weekend in another double header at Hetland Arena.
