Pee Wee Warriors: The Gateway Warriors won their second game of the season, defeating the Hanover Pee Wee team 4-1 at Hobomock Arena. Alex DeMarco and Zachary Pateakos shared goaltending duties, facing a total of 11 Hanover shots. The Warriors played excellent two-way hockey throughout all three periods, countering with an amazing 41 shots on goal! Scoring was a true team effort. Ben Demoranville netted his first of the season, assisted by brother Jake and linemate Dan Flynn. Jared Westgate stickhandled through traffic to score his first of the season, unassisted. Bethany Davis got some help from linemates Zachary Barris and Robert Ramsay, to score her first goal as a Warrior. Ramsay would go on to finish the scoring assault with the prettiest goal of the day, as Westgate took the puck wide and set him up for a sweet backhand that was simply too much for the Hanover goalie to handle.
Middle School: The Wareham Vikings Middle School 1 team suffered a loss in their season opener at Foxboro to Canton, 3-2. The Vikings started off well with good control of the puck and nice passing. They took the lead at the end of the first period with a goal by Vittorio Consoletti, assisted by Zack Lovendale. Canton responded with several attempts on goal that were deflected by the Vikings’ defense and goalie Steven Strachan, but Canton managed to squeak one by to tie it up at the end of the first. Wareham kept up their assault on the Canton goalie, with attempts made by Vyper Latulippe, Kaitlin Kelley, and Consoletti. The Vikings regained a 2-1 lead when Cameron DeMarco hit the back of the net to end the second period. Canton quickly responded with a goal in the third period, scoring on goalie Teaghin Andre. The Vikings kept fighting, but ultimately lost the battle as Canton scored again with only a few minutes left.
