The 2004 Squirt Major team traveled to the Bog for a match up with the Breakers. The Shamrocks started off slow and got down 1-0 early in the 1st off a rebound goal and took a while to get started. But with less than 3 minutes left in the period Matt Elwell would bang in a rebound off a blistering shot by Nick Heaslip from the point to tie the game 1-1. The Shamrocks would pepper the goalie and with just under a minute Will Van Sicklin would tip Jake Guertin's shot from the point by the goalie to make it 2-1 Shamrocks at the end of 1. The second period started quick with Patrick Barrett springing Tommy Chesna who would bang in the goal making it 3-1. Following that would be a great give and go from Dominic Chesna to Michael Pellegrino who would put it by the Breaker goalie making it 4 to 1. The Shamrocks would get another one when Jake Guertin passed to Van Sicklin who hit Ryan McGuinness with a great pass and McGuinness would wrist it by the goalie making it 5-1. The Breakers would get a second period goal but the Shamrocks controlled play and lead 5-2 at intermission. The Shamrocks continued the pressure and Van Sickling would connect with McGuinness again with a great passing play resulting in a 6-1 lead when McGuinness put the puck in the back of the net. McGuinness wasn't done as he would get the helper when he hit Chesna with a pass and Tommy would put it by the goalie to make it 7-2 . The Shamrocks would continue to get opportunities and James Carmilia would get an unassisted goal and Michael Pellegrino would also get an unassisted goal to close out the 9-2 win over the Breakers. The Shamrocks Defense continues to play well by creating offense from the points and supporting each other. The forwards continue to pressure the other team with a great forecheck and some great passing. The goalie tandem of Jared Norton and Aidan Goulding continue to be solid between the pipes with some very big saves in the game. Great Team effort...The Shamrocks have a busy schedule next week with two games in NY and a game against the rival Islanders squad.
