The Squirt 2004s had a busy weekend of hockey with two games on Saturday and one on Sunday. The Squirt Major 2004s traveled to the Schenectady, NY area on Saturday to take on the CP Dynamo team. The first game was held at the RPI College rink and the Sharmrocks would start strong and never look back. The Shamrocks would score 7 first period goals and give up 1 to take a commanding 7-1 lead into the second. The Shamrocks would have a strong second period adding 4 more and giving up 1 to lead it 11-2 after two. The third period the Shamrocks would have a lot of chances and would get two and give up 1 to take the first game 13 to 3. Two Shamrocks, Ryan McGuinness and Cosmo Siano would have hat tricks during the game. The Shamrocks would travel to Union College to play the second game vs. CP Dynamo. The Shamrocks started slow and would get down 1-0 early. However, they would rebound quickly and get 4 first period goals to take a 4-1 lead into the second. The Second period would be all Shamrocks with 5 second period goals and giving up 1 to take a 9-1 lead into the third period. The Shamrocks would slow it down a little and get two more in the third to take a 11-2 win. Rowan Mondello would get a hat trick during the second game.
The Squirts 2004 faced off against the Islanders for an afternoon tilt at the Islanders home rink. The Shamrocks may have been tired from their previous days road trip and would get down 3-0 half way through the 1st period. The coaching staff refocused the team made some line changes and Ryan McGuinness would take a feed from Will Vansicklin to and wrist it by the Islander goalie to make it 3-1. Ben "The Rocket" Sieve would turn the jets on taking a pass from Janssen Sperling and firing a wrist shot top corner to cut the lead to 3-2. Van SIcklin would pounce on a loose puck skate into the Islander zone and fire a blistering wrist shot to tie the game at 3. The Shamrocks werent done with McGuinness getting his second goal of the game less than 20 seconds later to give the Shamrocks the 4-3 lead going into the second. The Islanders would briefly tie the game in the second before Mcguinness would get his third and fourth goals of the game to give the Shamrocks a 6-4 lead. Helper goes to James Carmilia. The Islanders would get one more but that would be the last goal of the game. The game was hard fought on both sides with the Shamrocks hitting several posts. The turning point of the game was a penalty shot stop by Shamrock Goaltender Jared Norton. The Shamrocks are 5-0 on the season and are back home next week to face the Dual State Riverhawks before traveling to Hingham to play a non-league game against the South Shore Conquistadors. Great team wins boys!

The Shamrocks started their season in style beating the Bulldogs 9-3. To kick off the year, Jason Hurford scored in the first after taking a spin-o-rama pass from CJ Hacker. Aidan Jalbert scored the next goal for the ‘Rocks with an assist to Shea Clark. CJ Hacker completed the first period scoring with an assist to Nick Julian with one second left in the period.
The Green put another 3 goals on the board in the second with Julian scoring on a nice end to end rush after taking a breakout pass from Clark. Josh Brann then got his first Shamrock goal with assists to Jack Mackey and Josh Wang. Later in the period, Mackey netted his first Shamrock goal with assists to Wang and Brann. The Green led 6-2 after two periods.
In the third, the Shamrocks closed out the game with 3 more goals. Hunter LaRiviere scored the first two, with Jalbert and James Kourkoutas assisting on the first and Mackey assisting on the second. Lance Anderson finished the scoring with his first Green goal converting a nice pass from LaRiviere.
Goaltenders Ryan Moriarty and JT Bowdridge played very well in net for the Green. The law firm of Peterson and Peterson (Tommy and Conor), played very strong defense for the Shamrocks. Joey O'Brien and Peter Kourkoutas played excellent two-way hockey. LaRiviere won the Shamrock helmet for his hard work in this game.

The 02 Pee Wee Orange team broke into the win column on Saturday. The team got a much deserved “W” after a 4-1 win over Top Gun. The game was a rematch of last Saturday's hard fought, last second loss. The boys came flying out of the gates putting sustained pressure on the Top Gun goalie for much of the first period. Top Gun scored first but it did not deter the Shamrocks. They kept working hard as a team making good passes and shooting from all angles. Patrick Maloney (1-0-1) opened the scoring with assists going to Drew Buckley (0-1-1) and Ryan Bosworth (0-1-1). The Shamrocks took the lead for good in the second when Robert Bryan (1-2-3) proved there are no bad shots on net. Robert shot from the face off dot to the left of the Top Gun goalie. The goalie tried to make the save with his stick but the puck directed up off his stick and under the cross bar. Nick Spinale and Joe Shields made some great and timely saves in the second keeping Top Gun off the board. JJ Librizzo (1-0-1) got the insurance goal off a rebound of a two on one break-in started by Tyler Seller (0-1-1) and Robert Bryan. Cole Johnson (1-0-1) closed out the scoring with just under two minutes left in the third when he beat the goalie far side with a shot from the left circle after receiving a nifty pass from Robert Bryan. The team closed out the game by successfully killing a penalty called with 1:18 left in the game and Top Gun pulling their goalie.
Monday, September 15, 2014, 9:19PM
On Saturday the team lost a back and forth affair to Top Gun. The Shamrocks got on the board first with a goal by Aiden Robinson (1-1-2) early in the first period. The team threw everything they had at the goalie from Top Gun who made save after save keeping his team in the game. Top Gun tied the game late in the first. After a scoreless second period, courtesy of great saves at both ends the teams game out flying in the third. Again the Shamrocks were able to take the lead early in the period on a goal from Drew Buckley (1-0-1) with assists from Sean Cunningham (0-1-1) and Robert Bryan (0-1-1). Top Gun rallied for two goals and held on to the lead until Jared Green (1-0-1) was able to put one past the Top Gun goalie with 1:15 left in the third. Despite a furious effort in their offensive zone by the boys, Top Gun was able to get a goal with 20 seconds left to steal the win and a point. Final score 4-3
Sunday's game featured a showdown against a very deep and talented 495 Stars team. The team's strong resolve and work ethic was demonstrated throughout. Colin Savil (3-0-3) opened the scoring for the Shamrocks in the first tying the game. Colin was able to score twice in the second (completing the hat trick) with helpers going to Brogan Chambers (0-1-1) and Cole Johnson (0-1-1). Despite being down throughout the game the team worked together and battled hard all game. The end result was an 11-3 loss.

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.

2002 Pee Wee
Major Orange Round up
The 2014-15 season opened with the Shamrocks 02 Orange
squad, facing a tough New England Bulldogs squad. The team fell behind early,

the gap and gave the Shamrocks some momentum heading into their contest on

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
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.

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.

and adding another 4 unanswered goals in the second period, and 3 more in the 3rd. Goalies Patrick Letourneau and Joey Shields
held Global to a single goal in the 3rd period. The defensive squad with Zach Shaw, Justin

wins 4 hours apart on Saturday.
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.
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
Sunday, November 3, 2013, 8:41PM

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.

Pee Wee Minor Orange Team keeps rolling/ 02 Pee Wee Minor Orange
Pee Wee Minor Orange Team continued to roll this weekend with a win over The
Dover Stars. The Stars had come in on a
7 game winning streak (their last loss was to the Shamrocks back on September
15th) and the Shamrocks were 9-0-1 in their previous 10.
Stars came out flying at the start, if not for the tremendous work of Kenny
Dunne in net the Shamrocks could have found themselves down early in the
game. The boys found their skating legs

Despite being called for 10 penalties the team managed to keep their composure and score 3 short-handed goals. This matched the number of power-play goals the team scored. While Kenny Dunne was holding the fort in net Christian Dunham (1-1-2), Tyler Seller (1-0-1), Colin Savill (1-0-1), Sean Cunningham (2-0-2), Will Larson (1-0-1), J.T. Monahan (1-0-1), Anthony Pecci (1-1-2) and a pair of assists from RJ Koberski.
On Sunday the boys had an early game at home in Wilmington against Global Hockey. The team got off to a bit of a slow start and thanks to the efforts of Kenny Dunne got out of the first period tied 0 – 0. In the second period Adian Robinson (1-3-4) got the Shamrocks on the board. The scoring was continued by Colin Savill (2-0-2), and Anthony Pecci (1-2-3). Entering the third period with a 3-0 lead the team continued to apply pressure and score three more goals.

The Squirt Minors would return home for a home game against the Bridgewater Bandits. The game started with the Shamrocks jumping all over the Bandits early however their goalie was big and good and turned away shot after shot. The 1st period would end with many chances by the Shamrocks but no score going into the second. The second period started of like the first with the Shamrocks testing the Bandits goalie but he was up to the task until Will Vansicklin passed to Dominic Chesna in close and with two nifty moves he found the back of the net and put the Shamrocks up 1 to 0. The Bandits would come back with a fluke goal which would tie up the game 1 to 1. The Shamrocks continued to pressure the Bandits and with 47 seconds left in the period Vansicklin passed back to Jake Guertin at the point who passed over to his defensive partner Patrick Barrett who fired a wrist shot from the blue line and beat the goalie five hole to make it 2 to 1. The Shamrocks werent done and 20 seconds later the hard work of Vansicklin and Tommy Chesna would lead to another goal by Dominic Chesna to make it 3 to 1 heading into the third. The Shamrocks took control and the defense of Nick Heaslip, Janssen Sperling, Patrick Barrett and Jake Guertin continued to control the game and would spring Van Sicklin who came down the right side and fired a wrist shot over the goalies shoulder under the cross bar to get his second of the game and put the Shamrocks up 4 to 1. Vansicklin wasnt finished as he would take a feed from the Chesna brothers and fire a wrist shot by the goalie to make it 5 to 1. With 3 minutes left in the game Tommy Chesna would go in make some moves and make it 6 to 1 which would end up to be the final. Next up for the boys in Green is a trip to Lake Placid.
