MITE S (5-8 Years Old)

Malden/East Boston 8

Cambridge 2

The MEB Mite S team continues to make great strides in developing our youngest competitive players, with lots of puck movement against Cambridge. Several new members of this squad means three full lines plus a goalie on most Sunday mornings, and our team is working through the season well. The Cambridge team had stronger puck carriers in this game, but their standout was the goalie, who stopped a number of breakout chances from MEB.  On the other end, our MEB goalie made a number of saves and showed great stick work, blocking attempts and clearing the puck from the front of the net several times. These games have switched to half-ice in the second half of the season (expanded from cross-ice), and is preparing the team well for their full-ice competition in Marlborough later this month at the Central Mass Winter Classic.

Connery Arena, Lynn MA

The MEB Bantam AAA’s, suffering from a short bench with several players on their respective high school hockey teams, started strong against the Reading Rockets AAA Bantams in a Groundhog Day morning appearance at the Connery rink in Lynn. The 1st period saw lots of back and forth play and a couple of dramatic saves by our goalie Anthony Giuliano, who would prove to be a huge factor in this mid-season match. Scoreless after the 1st, the team again jumped early in the 2nd and in netted a goal from James Pandolfo on great puck movement and passing in front of the Reading goalie. The game continued with tough play and more fantastic saves from Giuliano, including a grab of a rebound second chance shot at point blank with no help from the defense. After several penalties in the second and third for Reading, and many more scoring chances by both teams, the game was sealed in literally the last second with an empty net goal at the buzzer from Mike Defilippo from deep in the MEB defensive zone.
