Mites, Squirts, Pee Wees take to rink
BRATTLEBORO -- In weekend games against Ludlow, Ma and Westfield, Ma, the BHA Mites scored some goals and played great team defense. Sam Hall and William Hill had multiple point games, Rowan Lonergan netted his first career goal, and Marina Wilson and Evan Wright played rock solid defense. Matthew Gordon-Macey and Kyle Hamilton split time in net.
The BHA Squirts overcame a sluggish first period where they were lucky to be leading 2-1 against the Springfield (Ma) Capitals by firing up the skating legs in the second period. The goals came fast and furious. Aden McMahon was a dual threat, leading a strong defensive effort while chipping in two goals and one assist. Other key contributors to the offense were Will Taggard with a goal and two assists, Gabe Heiden with four goals, Jack Rockefeller with two goals and an assist, and Kami Meier with one goal and an assist. The scoring was rounded out with a solo strike from Nelly Tattersall, for the Squirts’ fourth consecutive win.
The BHA’s entry in the GSL Pee Wee East earned a 6-6 tie against Amherst (Ma) on Saturday morning at the Mullens Center. Juniper DiMatteo-Lepape had two goals and an assist, and Forrest Wohnus made a number of clutch saves as the Pee Wee White team mounted comebacks twice from two goals down. The strong team effort was marked by all nine players registering at least one point on the scoring sheet.
Peewee Blue took a loss on Saturday against the top-ranked Westfield (Ma) Bombers, but Sunday’s game against the Amherst A squad was a much different story in Brattleboro’s 4-3 win. Dimitri Seger scored first, assisted by Jakob Curtiss and Anthony Palomba. Curtiss would get a hat trick in the game, assisted by Andrew Peloso, Alex Hudon, and Mason Foard. With the Amherst goalie pulled during the final minute of play giving them an extra attacker, attempts to tie the game were met with the tireless defense of Aidan Kindopp, Nathan Powers, and the outstanding Austin "Woody" Wood in goal.
