•The PeeWee 2 team came away with a win against Lexington/Bedford, 8-2, on Feb. 2. Lucas Wheeler scored his sixth and seventh goals of the game late to give Charlestown the win.
•The Squirt 1 team nearly snapped their skid against Needham on Feb. 15, but ended up falling 2-3 in a close game. The team began the year really hot, but has struggled with several close games going the wrong way.
•The Squirt 2 team put up a good win against Lexington/Bedford on Feb. 2, 5-3. Matt Sorgini capped a hat trick with 3:43 left and Harrison Fisher, who assisted on that goals scored 38 seconds later to give Charlestown a 5-3 victory over Lexington/Bedford. On Feb. 8, however, they took a tough loss, 2-4 to Stoneham in Malden. They face the Demons in Revere on Feb. 22.
•The Squirt 3 team came away with a win against Agawam on Feb. 2 in Hockeytown. Marten scored what turned out to be the winner as Charlestown edged Agawam late. The team picked up a good win, 5-3, this week against Beverly in Hockeytown.
•U14 GIRLS: The U14 girls faced the Northeast Pioneers in LoConte Rink and came away with a win, 3-1, on Feb. 8. They remain in third place, but have more games to play and are 16-1-2 overall in the season.
•U12 GIRLS: The girls have had a long break in action, with no game scheduled until this weekend. They remain in first place with an overall record of 16-3-2.
•U12/10B GIRLS: The girls faced the Natick Comets on Feb. 15 in Essex Arena on the early game. The girls fought to a draw for most of the game, with Goalie Erin Alves playing steady along with the defense. The offense was on the attack, but couldn’t get it to go in despite several great shots on net. Down 1-0, controversy entered when a goal appeared to ricochet into the net late in the third period. However, the referee waived off the goal saying it hit the post. That was disputed, but the call stood. Natick edged Charlestown 1-0.
