This week’s senior game was outstanding. It started slowly as the defenses on both sides dominated. Not many quality shots were taken and the play was back-and-forth. Once the strikers figured out how to get off some quick shots, the goals started coming. The scoring was well balanced as they each scored three times. The red team had 2 goals scored by Matt Saraiva as he launched rocket shots and 1 goal by Adam Strominger. The blue team was not to be denied as Stefani Egre tallied twice and Robert Vittiglio rounded out the scoring with another. The juniors also ended in a tie, 4-4. Harrison Stein had 2 goals and Josh Hom and Samantha Duggan each scored a goal for the Dragons. The defense was held together by Justin Almonte and Josh Birnbaum. The Ghost Busters had a ‘hat trick’ by Emily Bosco and another by Camilla Dervisevic. Petros Panomeritakis assisted on 2 goals.
