• Mites 1: The Gateway Mites 1 team faced their toughest opponent yet this season, but triumphed over the Falmouth White team to continue their undefeated season. All three lines played a strong game — scoring, defending and hustling to the puck. Kaden Schultz, Tyler Kelly and Chace Guinen put forth really strong efforts. Many thanks to all the grandparents who came to cheer on the team!
• Mites 2: The Gateway Mites 2 team skated away with another double-digit victory this weekend, continuing their undefeated season in the Falmouth League. Thomas Leger took home the game puck with a stellar goal-scoring performance along with timely defensive work at both ends of the ice. Mites 2 goalie Kaden saved a total of 15 shots, including a rare penalty shot.
• Squirts 1: The Ice Wolves got back to their winning ways this weekend, defeating the GYH Ireland team 7-1. Tyler Lovendale and Quirino doCanto both netted hat tricks and Seth Tomasik chipped in with a goal assisted by Chris Gauvin on a nice play off the face-off. Julia Elicier was on her game today with two assists and outstanding aggressiveness on both ends of the ice. The Ice Wolves came to play today and it showed by a total team effort. Thomas Galavotti manned the net and came up with some big saves to earn the win. Gateway now moves to 13-6 on the season and will play again next weekend against GYH USA.
• Squirts 2: The Gateway Sharks had another good weekend where teamwork and effort paid off. The Sharks played back-to-back games against the Nantucket Nor’Easters on Sunday, November 18. In game one, the always tough Nor’Easters took the win with a score of 5-1, but Gateway player Stephen Old got us on the board with an unassisted goal. In game two, the Gateway Sharks fought back and walked away with a hard-earned tie. Two unassisted goals by Ben DeMoranville, along with the support of his team and Goalie Alex DeMarco, helped to avoid a loss against an aggressive team.
• PeeWees: The Gateway Gladiators ended a 4-game skid by edging out a much-improved Lower Cape Coyote team, 2-1 at Charles Moore Arena in Orleans. The Gladiators found themselves battling penalties and playing from behind for much of the game. However, Gladiator effort and determination resulted in a dramatic third period come-from-behind victory. Gladiator goalies benefited from the strong back-checking and physical play by their teammates, allowing Steven Strachan to earn his first shutout of the season.
Zack Lovendale was able to grind out a goal that knotted the score until late in the third period when the game-winner came off the stick of Zack’s younger brother, Tyler, with 24.5 seconds remaining in the game.
