Gateway Youth Hockey Weekend Recap

Mites 1: The Mite 1 team came from behind to beat the SC Panthers in Falmouth. After a slow start, the team picked it up a notch and finished strong.  Matthew Quinlan lead the charge with multiple goals and clean, physical play that resulted in good positioning. Matthew Paling had a sweet shot that scored from the red line. Coach Schultz awarded the game puck to the entire team for not giving up when they were down.

Squirt 1: The Ice Wolves remained undefeated in the Yankee Conference beating Braintree 7-1 Sunday.  After a sluggish start, the Ice Wolves pulled away in the third period.

Chipping in with assists, doCanto with 3 and John Rodrigues, Riggle, Gallagher each with one.  Thomas Galavotti earned the win in net for the Ice Wolves.

Bantams: Gateway recorded their fourth straight win with a 4-2 victory over Hanover Saturday night.  Again, Gateway took control of the game with a pretty two on one that saw Brady Smith draw the defender and the goalie before sliding the puck to Brian Holmes who buried the eventual game winner. Heading into the third, Gateway dug deep and created a force field in their defensive zone to help goalie Teaghin Andre frustrate the Hanover offense. Clinging to a slim lead, and outnumbered on the ice, Kelso iced the game and finished his hat trick by sending the puck through the Hanover defenders legs and into the empty net with less than a minute to play.

Middle School: The Wareham Vikings middle school team had another victory over Oliver Ames at Raynham CDL on Friday, December 21 with a 9-6 tilt.

Wareham pulled ahead early with four quick goals in the first period. Cam DeMarco once again scored the first goal of the game, Will Paling followed with an unassisted goal, and Sean Kelso found the net while Connor Kelley finished out the scoring in the first.

Mike Houdlette came out firing in the second, scoring a goal with an assist by Kelley and a second unassisted goal. Goalie Chase Cunningham left at the halfway mark with a shutout after an excellent performance in the net.

At the end of the second period, Oliver Ames got on the board, scoring with under two minutes left. In the third, they found their rhythm, scoring a goal as the period started. Houdlette answered with an assist from Paling, giving him his hat trick for the night.
