CYHA Update – Mayor’s Cup Week
•SQUIRT 1…The Squirts won in thrilling fashion Tuesday night in Dorchester’s Devine Rink, beating Dorchester in a shootout, 2-0. The team had been up in regulation, but Dorchester came back and tied it 3-3 in the third period. Danny Chan and Jack Chardavoyne scored both shootout goals for the Townies, and Goalie Jackson Phillips was strong in net, stopping both shots by Dorchester. The team won on Monday as well to get to Dorchester, with Chardavoyne, Sam Johnson, and Sloane Irvin scoring in the contest.
•SQUIRT 2…The Squirt 2s won 4-0 over Parkway on Monday, with Matthew Sorgini scoring two goals in the effort.
•SQUIRT 3…The Squirt 3 team lost two games off the bat and are out of the Cup now, but they played a very competitive game against South Boston on Tuesday night that nearly went their way.
•U10 GIRLS…The U10s took a heartbreaking loss in a shootout against top-seeded Allston-Brighton on Tuesday night in Harvard’s Bright Arena, losing 1-0. The game was pretty well-controlled for three periods by the Townies, but they couldn’t get the puck past Allston’s goalie and tough defense. The game ended knotted at 0-0. The girls didn’t make any of their three tries, but one of Allston’s attempts hit the post and barely trickled in. Last Sunday, the U10s earned the right to play at Harvard by beating Parkway 3-0, Abbey DeRoeve with two goals in the contest and Goalie Erin Alves getting the shutout. The girls will face Parkway again on Monday at Matthews Arena at Northeastern, with the hopes of being able to win that one and face off against Allston-Brighton again for the championship in January.
