Malden/East Boston Youth Hockey Update (9/22/2015)

This past week saw the MEB crew come out on top in most of the games, with our younger teams performing the best in their matches over the weekend.

The Squirts (9-10 Years Old) started the weekend of 2 games off with a big win over Wellesley. The goals came early and often at the Loconte rink in Medford with MEB up 4-0 by the end of the 1st period. Ryan Thomas opened the scoring banging in a rebound of a Ryan Jones’ shot. Following that was a goal from Jake Simpson assisted by Chad Robertson, a goal by Robertson on a pass from Jackie Summers and to close out the period, Will Fosdick scored with an assist to Preston Tully. The 2nd period saw a goal from Ryan Jones assisted by Simpson, then a second goal each for Simpson (unassisted) and Fosdick assisted by Chris Cecca. It was MEB’s Ryan Thomas with his second of the game who opened up the scoring again in the 3rd period. The goal of the game was scored by Preston Tully assisted by Chris Cecca. This was Tully’s 1st goal as a squirt! The last goals of the game were unassisted scores by Chris Cecca and Simpson. The goaltender tandem of Jacob Thomas and Ben Rosa combined for the first shutout of the season.

MEB Squirts completed the weekend sweep of 2 games with another big win in Malden - this time the opponent being Winchester. This was the first game Malden’s goalies were tested as Winchester came out of the gates fast and opened up the scoring on a rebound after two great saves by Preston Tully. Malden’s Jake Simpson responded quickly to tie the game at 1-1 right off the ensuing face-off. MEB never looked back rattling off the next 5 goals and a 6-1 lead. The teams traded goals for the remainder of the game, but when the final buzzer blew, MEB had an 11-4 victory and an impressive 3-0 record, tallying 29 goals and only surrendering 5 in their opening 3 games. Highlights of this one were Gigi DiMarco's first 2 goals of the season and another strong showing by the netminders Tully and Ben Rosa.

The MEB Pee Wee team started strong on Sunday versus a full Lynnfield/Saugus team. Thomas Sullivan notched 5 goals in the contest. Thomas Sullivan scored in all three periods and Cal Baglio kept his scoring streak alive with a goal assisted by Matthew Bozzi. Christopher Barsotti and Jared Swanson played two way hockey and assisted on a goal each. Nicholas Summers had three assists and played both offense and defense for the short-benched MEB team. Matthew Bozzi had an end to end goal in the second period that gave MEB the 6-0 lead after two periods. Newcomer Matthew Robbins and first year Pee Wee Ryan Cavanaugh played solid defense in front of Kurt Jancsy, while Jancsy had another great game as he turned away many shots in the third period as MEB beat Lynnfield/Saugus 7-1.

In a Tuesday night battle pitting MEB Midgets against Brookline, MEB scored with five minutes left to play in the first period, followed by a scrum goal in front of the net by Brookline just two minutes later. Some good back and forth play throughout the second period resulted in the tie standing heading into the third. Taking a bad penalty early in third, MEB was down a man when Brookline took the lead 2-1 on the power play, which is how the score remained until the end, with MEB on the short end.

Saturday night had the MEB Midgets facing Arlington at the Malden Valley Forum. A fairly evenly matched lineup started with a bad bounce off the MEB post in the first period to find it's way to the back of the net. Down one, MEB applied pressure in the offensive zone with a pass back to the point for a one time blast off of Zach Rich's stick for a short side tally to even things up. Shortly after a defensive lapse left MEB goalie Conner Christman helpless as Arlington quickly regained the lead. MEB continued to stay in it despite numerous penalties leaving us short handed yet able to bring the game back even at the end of two. After a between period chat about stepping up, MEB's Zach Sheehy took it upon himself to throw it all out there and sink two goals in a single shift to put the home team up for good and solidify a hard fought 4-2 win.
