Shamrocks 2004 Team has Strong Start to Season!! The Shamrocks 2004 team traveled to The Rinks at Exeter this weekend to take part in the Summer Showdown Tourney. The Shamrocks would start out strong with an 8 to 4 victory over Top Gun the first night. The second game they would pepper the Spartans Goaltender and would come away with a 4-3 win to put them tied for first with the Jr Rangers. The third game was a tough physical game where the Shamrocks would fall behind 3 to 1 early in the game. The Shamrocks changed the momentum of the game after killing a 6:30 minute power play and would go on to tie the Jr Rangers 3-3. The Shamrocks would end the pool play in second place after losing the tie breaker and would play the Top Gun team again in the Semi-Finals. The Shamrocks came ready to play and would control the semi-final game from the first puck drop and would get a berth to the finals after beating the Top Gun team 11-2. The Championship would come down to the Shamrocks and the Jr. Rangers. The Shamrocks got down 2 to 0 in the first minute of play. However, the shook off the nerves and jitters and would cut the lead to 2 to 1. The Jr Rangers would score again to take a 3-1 lead. The Shamrocks would compose themselves during the 2nd intermission and at 9 minutes an 9 seconds left would take control of the game with 2 fast goals to tie it 3-3. After a Shamrocks time out, the Shamrocks lined up and after relentless pressure they would score the winning goal with 25 seconds left in the game...the Shamrocks would hold on after the Jr. Rangers pulled their goalie for the Championship. All weekend the Shamrocks played tough with a gritty defense corp of Patrick Barrett, Nick Heaslip, Janssen Sperling, Ryan Dusablon and Jake Guertin. The Shamrocks scored 30 goals in 5 games with a lot of hard work by the forward group which included Ryan McGuinness, Matt Elwell, Rowan Mondello, Will Van Sicklin, Cosmo Siano, Michael Pellegrino, Ben Sieve, Tommy Chesna and Dominic Chesna. The Shamrocks got great goaltending from the duo of Jared Norton and Aidan Goulding....All of the boys showed great heart, tremendous team work and support of each other and never gave up the entire weekend...Great Job Shamrocks!!!!

2000 Green Team Beginning to Roll!! / 01 Bantam Minor Orange

Monday, November 18, 2013, 10:26AM
After a sluggish start to the 2013-2014 season, The 2000 Shamrock Green team has begun their climb toward the top of the standings.  Two complete team efforts this past weekend produced a 5-3 win over the Dual State Riverhawks on Saturday, and a convincing 5-1 victory over the Dover Stars on Sunday.  Both wins began with stellar goaltending by Alec Degregorio and were finished off by an always smiling Ryan Vogel.  The defensive unit was lead by "crunching" body checkers Jack Sutherland and Sean Loescher who continue to improve with their physical play in all 3 zones. Will Toomey continued his consistent effort to angle opposing forwards toward the boards and begin the rush up ice after breaking up many plays.  Anthony Nasta and Jacob Pineau have provided a big "crunch" for the 2000 Green squad by playing both forward and defense whenever and wherever they are needed to help the team.  This has lead to both goals on offense, and key defensive plays to preserve victories in 4 of the team's last 6 games.
And who can forget about offense?  The offensive unit has come alive and continues to pressure opponents into making mistakes that end up in the back of the net.  The relentless "crunching" forechecking lead by Dan Macnamara, Nick Bisconti, Nick Golini, and Jason Haggerty, continues to make the Shamrock Green Team difficult to play against.  Add in some fancy footwork and duck under moves by Patric Cotreau, John Keaney, Domenic Murray, and Max Doucette and the Shamrocks display some well balanced offense.  Everyone has joined in on the fun on the scoresheet in all different ways.  Nick Golini and Dan Macnamara continue to drive to the net to put the puck away.  Patric Cotreau and John Keaney have added more and more physical play to their finesse game to make some great passes, and get more pucks to the net.  Nick Bisconti and Jason Haggerty continue to move the puck and create odd man rushes up ice.  Domenic Murray and Max Doucette have found that their skating ability is a weapon on the ice, beating the opposing teams to the puck on a regular basis.  The offensive unit as a whole continues to "crunch" the net to score more goals which are leading to more victories.
The 2000 Shamrock Green team looks to continue its effort to climb the standings this weekend at Ristuccia Arena, against Team Global Hockey, and rival Shamrocks Orange.  With a short bench, a lot of effort, continued skill improvement, and a little bit of "Crunch", this scrappy group is primed and ready for a strong middle of the season.

Squirt Minors take two!! / 05 Squirt Minor Green

Monday, November 11, 2013, 2:42PM

The Shamrocks had an early morning game at Ristuccia with the NE Bulldogs.  The Shamrocks arent known to be a great early morning team but they came out ready to play.  Tommy Chesna would get the first goal of the game unassisted after some tremendous skating and determination and Shamrocks were up 1 to 0.  The Shamrocks would have several chances and Nick Heaslip would go end to end with powerful skating and finish with a laser wrist shot over the shoulder of the Bulldog Goalie to make it 2 to 0.  However late in the third period a defensive miscap by the SHamrocks and the Bulldogs would get one back and the period would end up 2 to 1.  The second period the Shamrocks would have some great chances but the Bulldogs goalie was solid and kept the Shamrocks off the board.  The Bulldogs would get another goal in the second to make it 2 to 2 after 2.  The Shamrocks would regain the lead when Tommy Chesna would find Nick Heaslip at the Blue Line and Nick fired a shot by the Bulldogs goalie to make it 3 to 2.   The Bulldogs came right back capitalizing on a Shamrocks mistake to make it 3 to 3.  Patrik Sechulster would hit a streaking Tommy Chesna who would finish with a great wrist shot to make it 4 to 3.   Then Patrick Barrett would follow suit and spring Will Van Sicklin who would notch a goal and give the SHamrocks a 5 to 3 lead.  The Bulldogs went in attack mode and pulled their goalie and would get a late third period goal to make it 5 to 4 but they couldnt get the equalizer and the Shamrocks would squeak out a 5 to 4 win.
The second game of the weekend found the Shamrocks heading to Gloucester to play the Ice Hawks.  The Shamrocks started off strong and were all over the Ice Hawks goalie who was tremendous in net.  Tommy Chesna would get the hat trick, Patrik Sechulster would get a goal, Ryan Dusablon would get a goal, Will Van Sicklin would get a goal and Justin Giglio would score.  Jake Guertin would play strong defense and get three assists to help in the 7 to 0 win for the Shamrocks.

2 More Wins for 2002 Orange Team! / 02 Peewee Major Green

Sunday, November 3, 2013, 8:46PM

The Pee Wee Minor Team continued their winning ways this weekend with a pair of wins 4 hours apart on Saturday. 


The team started off with a strong 5-1 win against the Providence Junior Friars early Saturday morning at the Ristuccia.  The Shamrocks started off the scoring when Cole Johnson (1-0-1) snapped a wrist shot that found its way through the 5 hole at 5:59 of the first period from RK Kobierski (1-2-3) and Brogan Chambers (0-3-3).  Robert Ryan (1-2-3) scored a minute a half later when he was sent on a breakaway by Tyler Puska (0-1-1) and Brogan Chambers.  The team kept the pressure on and Christian Dunham (1-0-1) put one past the goaltender at the 14:31 mark with a shot along the goal-line.  In the second period Anthony Pecci (1-0-1) opened the scoring with a short-handed goal with assists from Kobierski and Chambers.  Kenny Dunne was terrific in net keeping the Friars off the scoreboard during 5 straight powerplays.  Entering the 3rd period up 4-0 the team worked hard to preserve the shut out for Dunne but a defensive miscue led to the Friars only goal.  After killing a 1:30 of 5 on 3 the Shamrocks closed out the scoring when Kobierski (from Chambers and Bryan) let it fly from the point beating the goalie through a screen. 


After getting breakfast and relaxing in the parking lot the boys took the ice at Noon to play the North Star Selects.  The game started off on a bad bounce when 17 seconds into the game the North Stars scored on a tricky bounce.  The boys fought right back and scored three straight goals.  Colin Savill (1-1-2) started the scoring, with RJ Kobierski (0-1-1) and Tyler Puska (0-1-1) assisting.  Brogan Chambers (1-1-2) netted the send on a rebound of an Anthony Pecci (1-1-2) shot.  Robert Bryan (1-0-1) finished the scoring in the 1st period pounding in the rebound off a Cameron Chute (0-2-2) shot.  The Shamrocks were able to build a 3 goal lead in the second when Pecci broke in a put one past the goalie.  The North Stars never quit and came back to tie the game at 4 before the end of the 2nd period.  The 3rd period was a back and forth affair.  Despite playing on what had to be tired legs the team scored three times in the period.  The first came from Tyler Seller (1-0-1) scored on a wrist shot from the slot on a pass from Cole Johnson (0-1-1).  Aiden Robinson (1-0-1), from Savill and Brendan Fox (0-1-1) gave the Shamrocks a 2 goal lead when he snapped a wrister past the goalie.  The North Stars were able to tie up the game and it looked like the team had run out of gas.  The team managed to dig deep and with 3:51 left in the game Christian Dunham (1-0-1), from Sean Cunningham (0-1-1) and Chute, blasted a snapper from the left circle past the goalie for the game winner.

Sunday, November 3, 2013, 8:41PM

Back to back wins for the PeeWee Major Orange starting with a big win over the Providence Jr Friars in Cranston 5-3.  Scoring started early in the first period with a goal by Cam Clark assisted by Andrew Brendline.  Providence answered back with two goals in the first period.  The Shamrocks rocketed back in the 2nd period with three unanswered goals by Kyle Braciska, unassisted, Nick Aiken, assisted by Andrew Brendline and Cam Clark, and Justin Heintz, assisted by Cam Clark.  Providence scored one more in the third but Andrew Brendline capped off the win with an empty net goal in the third.  Defense was a key in this one with Zach Shaw, Scott Elwell, Nick Farrell, Jacob Richards, Justin Heintz and Kyle Grant.

The Major Orange team embarked on Lake Placid for the weekend and although, they didn’t fare well on the scoreboard, it became very apparent in the last game against the Seacoast Spartans that they were not to be taken lightly.  It was a great weekend with a lot of team bonding and good memories.

But back to business this past Saturday at their home rink where the team came out swinging in a huge win against Top Gun, 15-3.  Goals scored by Cam Clark(2), Nick Aiken(2), Jake Vercolen(1), Anthony Deleo(2), Andrew Brendline(1), Nick Farrell(1), Kyle Braciska (1), and the big winner with 5 goals, Michael Dell’Orfano.  Assists made by Andrew Brendline(4), Dan McGaffigan (2), Wayne Cintolo(1), Scott Elwell(1), Justin Heintz(1), Kyle Grant(1) and Michael Dell’Orfano(1).  Defense  strong again led by goaltenders Patrick Letourneau and Joey Shields.

After our second season practice, players, parents and siblings congregated at Rocco's in Wilmington for an informal meet and greet. The highlight of the evening was clearly the beautiful Shamrock cake that the Dell'Orfano family provided. I'm pretty sure the picture of the cake went viral.

Then onto to the business of hockey. Our first game was on September 7th vs Global Hockey. The Shamrocks won by a score of 7-4. Goals scored by Andrew Brendline (2), Jake Vercolen, Wayne Cintolo, Michael Dell'Orfano, Anthony Deleo and Dan McGaffigan with assists by Andrew Brendline (2), Jake Vercolen(2), Michael Dell'Orfano, Kyle Grant(2) and Jacob Richards.

A strong defensive team of Justin Heintz, Zach Shaw, Jacob Richards, Kyle Grant, Scott Elwell and Nick Farrell helped keep the opponents at bay. Strong showings by Patrick Letourneau and Joey Shields in goal.

Game two was played in Marlboro, MA versus the Minute Man Flames. The Major Orange learned how penalties can impact the end game as they posted their first loss 4-2. The lone goals were scored by Kyle Grant assisted by Kyle Braciska and Michael Dell'Orfano assisted by Andrew Brendline

The defensive squad of Shaw, Richards, Grant, Elwell, and Farrell proved invaluable as they killed off several penalties especially late in the game. Again, Letourneau and Shields in goal did their part to keep us in the game

Game 3 at Ristuccia on the morning of 9/15 was another heartbreaker loss 3-2 in a game marred with Shamrock penalties. The two lone goals scored by Jackson Hart assisted by Nick Aiken and Scott Elwell, and Kyle Braciska assisted by Wayne Cintolo and Nick Farrell were not enough to ward off the Riverhawks.

A little rest in between games and a long ride down to The Bog got the Shamrocks in serious game mode, posting a 9-2 win over the Bay State Breakers. With only 2 penalties this game, the team mantra should be “less penalties equals more wins” Scoring was spread out with goals scored by Michael Dell' Orfano, Anthony Deleo, Jacob Richards, Kyle Braciska, Wayne Cintolo, Andrew Brendline, and Jake Vercolen with assists by Nick Aiken, Jackson Hart, Camden Clark, Justin Heintz, and Nick Farrell. The defensive team of Justin Heintz, Jacob Richards, Scott Elwell, Kyle Grant, Nick Farrell and goalies, Patrick Letourneau and Joey Shields once again delivered.

We all wish Dan McGaffigan a speedy recovery and return to the team. We need you!!!


Peewee Majors Win first game of season 2-0!!!!!! / 02 Peewee Major Orange

Saturday, September 14, 2013, 11:00AM

The second game of the Shamrocks' first weekend was a hard fought one. They took the ice for the first league game of the year against the Boston Jr. Terriers (White).

The first period began as a back and forth defensive battle with a flurry of shots coming from both ends. Shamrocks goalie Garrett Ruszkowski was yet again on his game this past Sunday with some big saves early in the game.

The first goal of the game did not come until the end of the first period when after some hard fought corner work by his linemates Brett Palladino and Marco Jaramello, Nick Dantuono capitalized on a pass dug out of the corner.

In the second period, defenseman Will O'Brien, helping his team out by jumping up to play left wing, brought the puck deep into the zone several times, keeping the momentum of the offense going. From the point, Kevin Kelleher tallied a few high percentage shots, allowing his forwards a chance at some quality rebounds. The hard work of all the players paid off halfway through the period when Nick Dantuono found the back of the net yet again, assisted by Chris Fiorentino and defenseman James Santagati.

Next came a good test for the Shamrocks. Faced with a penalty with only a couple minutes remaining, both forwards and defensemen stood strong and turned away several chances by the Terriers and were able to hold onto the shutout chance for Ruszkowski.

The third period was again a great example of defense for the Shamrocks. Strong defensive play from Sydney Vautour, Matt Ackerman, Jeff Matthews and Mike Dobie held the Terriers to limited chances.  Forwards  PJ Cumminsky, Noah Schott, and Aaron Scott helped on the backcheck.


Peewee Majors start weekend off with a 5-2 win! / 02 Peewee Major Orange

The '01 Peewee Major Green Shamrocks started the season off on a good note this past Saturday. Playing at home against the Lynn Comets, the Shamrocks return this year with a few new faces.

Returning forwards Marco Jaramillo, Chris Fiorentino, PJ Cumminsky, Aaron Scott, and Nick Dantuono will be joined this year by new players Jeff Floramo, Noah Schott, and Brett Palladino.

Returning blue-liners Sydney "Syd The Kid" Vautour, Will O'Brien, Mike Dobie, and James Santagatti will be joined by new players Jeff Matthews, Matt Ackerman and Kevin Kelleher.

Goalie Garrett Ruszkowski will be manning the position between the pipes once again.

This past Saturday's game got off to a quick start with Comets notching the first goal of the season. The Shamrocks were not on their heels for long as new forward Brett Palladino answered right back to tie the game at 1 a piece off a pass from defenseman Will O'Brien.

From there, the Shamrocks started rolling. Palladino's goal was followed quickly by a goal from PJ Cumminsky off a shot in the slot after put in deep in the zone by defenseman Mike Dobie.  WIth the final minutes ticking down in the 1st period, new forward Noah Schott banged one home off a pass from linemate Aaron Scott.

A few minutes into the second period, Aaron Scott and PJ Cumminsky connected with a goal from Scott.  The Shamrocks then went to sleep for the remainder of the period. Whether happy with their 4-1 lead or getting the legs back from lounging at the beach all summer, the rest of the period belonged to the Comets. They tallied another goal to bring the score within reach, 4-2.

Goaltender Garrett Ruszkowski stood on his head to preserve the Shamrock's lead going into the 3rd. He made save after save until the Shamrocks once again pulled ahead late in the 3rd period with a goal from Nick Dantuono after collecting a rebound from Jeff Matthews.

When the horn sounded, the Shamrocks headed off the ice with a 5-2 win for the first game of the season.


2 Wins to start season for 2004's! / 05 Squirt Minor Green

Thursday, September 12, 2013, 1:12PM

The Shamrocks 04's season opener would be against an old foe, the New England Bulldogs.  The boys looked sharp in their new uniforms and would take the early lead on a goal by Will Van Sicklin with the assists to Patrick Barrett and Janssen Sperling.  The Bulldogs would come back and score one to tie it up.  However, the Shamrocks would hit their groove and Vansicklin would score again from the feed of James Carmilia and Barrett.  Then 30 seconds later Justin Giglio woud take a feed from Ben Deraps and Ben Sieve to put one past the Bulldog goalie.  The Shamrocks would put one more by the Bulldogs goalie when Tommy Chesna received a pass from Jack Anderson and Jake Guertin to make it 4 to 2 after the first period.  The Shamrocks had a shooting party in the second period with Barrett starting the scoring with a nice wrist shoot from the feed of Carmilia and Van Sicklin.   Jack ANderson would notch one after the hard work of Dominic and Tommy Chesna.  Van Sicklin would complete the hat trick off a feed from Barrett and Carmilia.  Van Sickling wasnt finished as he would add his fourth later in the period with a feed from Cosmo Siano and Barrett.  The scoring would continue with Sieve notching one from a feed from Deraps and Giglio and the second period scoring frenzy would end with Anderson getting another after the hardwork of the Chesna brothers.  The 2nd period would end with the Shamrocks up 10 to 3.  The boys worked on their passing during the third period but before the Shamrocks were done Tommy Chesna would notch another one with a great wrist shot by the Bulldogs goalie.  The Bulldogs would score one late but the Shamrocks had a solid team effort and would take the first one of the early season 11 to 4.  Next up the Bandits down in Bridgewater.

The Shamrocks 04's headed down to Bridgewater to face a big Bandits team.  The boys looked a little tired from the long drive down and the Bandits would take advantage and score the games first goal.  The first period would go back and forth with both teams having their chances but the goal tending of JJ Quill was solid.  With 23 seconds left in the period Dominic Chesna would take  a feed from Ryan Dusablon and Nick Heaslip and would tie the game.  The second period was the same, with both teams having chances but both goalies up to the task.  However, Tommy Chesna would take a feed from Cosmo Siano and Janssen Sperling to make it 2 to1.  The Bandits would strike again and tie the game 2 to 2 going into the third.  The Shamrocks started to wake up in the third period and would take control of the game...the Bandits would continue to get their chances but JJ Quill was fantastic in net turning away every shot....Will Van Sicklin would get a goal after some nice stickhandling to make it 3 to 2 good guys.  And he wasn't finished as he would put one more by the Bandits goalie to make it 4 to 2.  The Bandits would fight to the end but the Shamrocks would secure the 4 to 2 win and cap a great weekend of hockey.  Next up the first home game vs. the Bay State Breakers.
