Gateway Youth Hockey Weekend Recap

Mites 1: With three full games on tap, the Mites beat Lower Cape on Saturday 18-0 with Brendan Burke scoring five goals and Ryker King scoring his first goal since joining the Mites. Both Matthew Quinlan and Juni Suarez had hat tricks. Meghan Craig earned the shutout. Tyler Kelly was the winning goalie in the afternoon half-ice game in Falmouth versus the Canal Mites, with Burke scoring another eight goals, helping the Mites to clinch first place in their Falmouth Cross-Ice League. On Sunday, the Mite 1s pulled out a 7-5 win against Lower Cape with Suarez scoring 4 goals to put Gateway on top.

Squirts 1: The Gateway Ice Wolves had a light weekend with only one game on Saturday. They walked away with their 30th win on the season 9-0. They continue to grow as a team and are starting to hit their stride at just the right time. Leading the scoring were Quirino doCanto with a hat trick and assist and Tyler Lovendale with two goals and an assist. Lovendale is now six points from joining doCanto in the 100-point club. Also chipping in with goals were Robert Maloney, Julia Elicier, Bryan Gallagher, and Chris Gauvin. Thomas Galavotti was solid in the net, earning the win with a shutout. The Ice Wolves will be back at it next weekend.

Squirts 2: The Gateway Sharks faced the D-Y Waves at Hetland Arena on Sunday. Gateway won the game 3-0 earning Alex DeMarco another shutout. A goal by Ben DeMoranville in the first period, followed by a goal by Danny Flynn in the second period, and another goal by Ben DeMoranville off of an assist by Danny Flynn in the third period, was more than enough to give the tough-fighting Sharks another win as they continue to improve their record week after week. Great positions, strong defense and aggressive forwards were the key ingredients the team put together to cook up another win.

Pee Wee Gladiators: After getting an early goal from Zack Lovendale, the Gateway Gladiators skated to a 2-2 tie with the Lower Cape Coyotes at Hetland on Sunday. The home team took a 2-1 lead deep into the third period after Matt Maloney beat the much-improved Coyote goalie. But the Gladiators had trouble staying out of the penalty box and soon found themselves playing short-handed for the tie. Needing a win, the Gladiators playoff hopes are now in significant jeopardy. They’ll have a shot at redemption next weekend as the Gladiators travel to Orleans to take on the LCCYH Fancy team.

Bantams: Gateway Bantams broke the winning streak this weekend, losing a tough game to Hanover. A win would have put them in second place in the Yankee Conference. Hanover defense proved to be too much for Gateway to get past and some great shots on net were handled by a sharp Hanover goal tender. Scoring goals for Gateway were Will Paling, Alex Atkinson and Mike Houdlette. Final score was 6-3. Gateway goalies A.J. Bridges and Tegan Andre did make some great saves despite the loss.

Middle School: Sticky ice and a goalie with a magic glove helped defeat the Wareham Vikings in their 4-1 loss to Norton in Walpole Friday night. The game started with aggressive defense from both teams and a nearly scoreless first period until Norton found the net. As the game went on, the Vikings struggled with poor ice condition and had a hard time finding their stride. Despite many attempts on net and the outstanding efforts of players like Cam DeMarco, the Vikings did not get on the board until the end of the third period, when Sean Kelso scored off an assist by Noah DeMoranville. By then the damage had been done, with Norton scoring in the second period and twice in the third. Even with the loss, goalie Teaghin Andre had a stellar game, saving 44 of 48 shots.
