Mite C: The Gateway Mite C team had an off night and lost to the SC Panthers on Saturday by a score of 28-11. The Mites came out in the first period slow but were able to only be down by two goals in the first period, 9-7. The second period, however, they were not so lucky. The Panthers took control of the game and the lead and never looked back. Brayden Cannon led the team with a hat trick. The other scorers on the night were Jarrod Frates, Paxton Jones, Brayden Hathon, Jack Langlais, Pat Tripp, and Tommy Clavell. Nate Wilson had 21 saves filling in for the sick Charlie Carroll.

Middle School 1: The Middle School 1 team was back in action on Friday night against a tough Taunton team. The Jr. Vikings skated away with a 5-2 victory, pushing their win streak up to six games. The team came out a little flat early on, but eventually found their rhythm when Peter Pimental tipped home a Seth Tomasik slap shot. Next to score was James L’Heureux, who grabbed the puck out from a pile of players in front of the net and snuck it by the goalie. Taunton wouldn’t be outdone, scoring on a deflection and a one timer from in close. With the score tied at two, defenseman Coleby Paling found a streaking Quirino doCanto, who beat the defender and somehow managed to get it by the sprawling goalie to give the Jr. Vikings a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Robert Ramsay scored the fourth goal on a nifty backhand shot up and over the goalie, almost from behind the net. Vyper LaTullippe found an open Robert Maloney in the slot to score the last goal, making it 5-2. Jake DeMoranville did a great job in net again, making multiple saves.
