December 2nd at the Hill Academy
Our Varsity Everest U15 and U13 hockey teams played the 2nd game of a home and home series against the Hill Academy.
In the first game our U13 team came out hard looking for redemption from the last time they faced and lost to the Hill. After a scoreless first period, Cole O’Hara got the scoring started. That opened the flood gates as Fimis, Arcuri, and Lleyton Moore scored 3 more to give us a 4-0 lead after 2 periods. The Hill would get one back to make it a 4-1 game. We weren’t done there. Sims and Fantilli scored one each, and Moore and Arcuri picked up there seconds of the game. The final would finish 8 to 1 with some fantastic goaltending by Anson Thornton.
The second game of the day would feature our U15 team who started the game great scoring the first 3 goals of the game. Condotta opened the scoring and Lepage scored shortly after. While shorthanded Ryan Nichol was able to intercept a pass and score to give us a commanding 3 – 0 lead after 1 period. In the 2nd we ran into some penalty problems going down 5 on 3 in two separate occasions. The Hill took a 4 to 3 lead heading into the 3rd period. After scoring to make it 5 to 3 we were able to connect on the power play from a great pass by Popov to Spadafora to close the score to 5 to 4. We had some great chances to tie the game late including a crossbar but were unable to finish. The game ended with the Hill Academy winning by a score of 6 to 4. Dylan Tower and Harrison Guigui split the duties in net.
