S & S 4
It looks like the P.A.T PeeWee team is starting to find its groove as it posted a well-deserved 5-4 win over S & S.
Although S & S scored a pair of quick goals halfway through the first period, P.A.T wasn’t discouraged and became more motivated to skate harder and play more physically.
Late in the first period, the offensive line of Declan Delaney, Matthew McCarthy (two goals) and Libby Morel finally got P.A.T on the board. Ryan Archibald (assist), Jaret Conner and Rowan Halloran (goal) kept things going 30 seconds into the second period with another beauty. Defensemen Cody Allard and Jarod Dussault (goal, assist) got in on the action, each scoring goals that stunned the S & S goaltender.
Joey Sheridan continued to be poised in net and made numerous amazing saves, while great hustle from forwards Jake Fitzgerald, Joshua Joy and Hunter Newsham kept the S & S defensemen on their toes.
A scoreless third period found defensemen Gavin Donohoe and David Hurley busy forcing their opponents out of the zone until P.A.T scored the winning goal with 1:21 remaining in the contest.
The P.A.T Squirt Ones stand tall. The squad went into its first games after parity unbeaten and took the ice against a strong and physical Beverly team. Declan Delaney scored a pair of goals for a 2-1 lead.
With time running out, Trevor Johnson iced the game with an empty-net goal. Caleb Ackerman and Owen Marr led a strong defense in front of netminder Tyler Melanson.
The second game of the weekend was against the high flying Malden/E. Boston Mustangs. After falling behind 2-0, Declan Delaney led the squad back with two goals to cut the deficit to 3-2. Jacy Lertes tied the game with a strong rush and score. Ryan Reil won the game with a quick score to follow. Again a strong defense in front of Tyler Melanson helped out, led by Kyle Templeton and Nick Joy. Also helping out was a strong presence on the ice by Brady Dillis and Nicholas Miller at both ends of the rink. P.A.T remains unbeaten after two tough and physical games and the boys should be proud of their effort.
P.A.T 2 1
The boys of P.A.T Bantam 2 team played strongly through three physically tough periods of hockey. Groton came out in the first period and took a 1-0 lead. Great hustle and teamwork led to a P.A.T goal in the second period and the teams went to the third period tied at 1-1. Tyler Reil scored the goal for P.A.T, assisted by Chris Babineau and Brendan Barry.
Groton managed to muscle in a pair of third-period goals to earn the victory.
