Pee Wee 02 Major Orange Jan 17th Roundup

Monday, January 26, 2015, 4:10PM

The 02 Orange team enjoyed back to wins on Saturday.  First beating the Providence Jr. Friars 5-2 and then N.E. Stars 11-0.

 The Shamrocks hit the road early Saturday for an 8:00 game against the Providence Jr. Friars at Schneider Arena.  The game had the appearance and feel of a goaltenders duel in the first period with the Providence goalie and Joe Shields stopping everything thrown at them.  The Shamrocks got on the board early in the second when Ryan Bosworth (1-0-1) fired a shot from the point that found its way through traffic and into the net.  Ryan’s shot was the result of good passing from Aiden Robinson (0-1-1) and Robert Bryan (0-2-2).  The Shamrocks added to their lead a minute and a half later when Sean Malone (1-0-1) knocked one in after Robert Bryan and Jared Green (0-2-2) were able to keep the puck in the offensive zone.  The Friars scored to cut the lead in half but JJ Librizzo (1-0-1) restored the 2 goal lead before the end of the second period.  In the third Nick Spinale kept the Friars off the board while Drew Buckley (1-0-1) and Colin Savill (1-0-1) extended the lead and closed out the game.

 The Shamrocks hosted the N.E. Stars Saturday night at the Ristuccia.  Even though they were playing their second game of the day almost 10 hours after the first the boys showed no signs of fatigue.  Colin Savill (3-1-4) got the Shamrocks on the board first less than a minute into the game when he took a pass from JJ Librizzo (0-2-2) across the crease and tucked it past the goalie.  Robert Bryan (3-0-3) scored on a slow roller past the goalie that deflected off of a few skates and found its way into the net.  Anthony Pecci (2-1-3) scored taking a feed from Colin and Sean Malone (0-3-3) firing past the Friars goalie.  Cole Johnson (2-1-3) scored twice in the final 1:30 of the first.  The first a rebound stuff off of an Anthony Pecci shot and the second a wrister from Aiden Robinson (1-2-3) and Sean Malone.  Putting the Shamrocks up 5-0 after 1.   The Shamrocks did not let up in the second as Robert Bryan got his second of the game after breaking in and beating the goalie a minute and half into the period.  Colin Savil got his second when Drew Buckley (0-1-1) sent him in alone.  Colin completed his hat trick 1:30 later when he knocked in a pass from JJ Librizzo.  Robert Bryan completed his trick 30 seconds later when he took a feed from Cole Johnson a fired it past the Stars goalie.  Going into the third period the Shamrocks were up 9-0.  Aiden Robinson scored early in the period when he broke up the play and fired one passed the Stars goalie.  Anthony Pecci got his second when he beat the goalie after taking a feed from Sean Malone and Aiden Robinson.  Not to be lost in all of this scoring was the spectacular play of Nick Spinale and Joe Shields that made several great saves throughout the game especially when not seeing the puck for extended periods of time.

Shamrocks Squirt Majors finish off regular season games with Islanders with a solid 2-1 Win.

Friday, January 16, 2015, 2:28PM



The Shamrocks Squirt Majors had an early morning tilt at home vs. the rival Middlesex Islanders.  This would be the last game during the regular season that the two teams would meet and the Shamrocks had a commanding 4 wins and 1 losses against the Islander team for the season.  The Islanders would strike first with an early first period goal when the Shamrock forwards didnt get the puck in deep enough.  However, the it would be all Shamrocks from that point on with the Shamrocks scoring their first goal in the second period when Nick Heaslip would intercept a pass from the Islanders and fire a blistering wrist shot from inside the blue line to beat the Islanders goalie and tie the game at 1-1.  The Shamrocks would have plenty of opportunity during the second period but kept firing over puck over the Islanders net looking for that top corner snipe.  The period would end with a 1-1 tie.  The thrird period would start off fast and the hard work of Ryan McGuinness would lead to an Islander hauling him down and the Shamrocks would go on the power play.  The Shamrocks would waste no time when Matt Elwell would find Will Van Sicklin in front of the net and Van Sicklin would waste no time with a blistering wrist shot top corner to beat the Islanders goalie three seconds into the power play.  The Shamrocks would shut the Islanders down the rest of the way and Tommy Chesna woud seal the deal taking the puck deep into the Islanders corner and controlling the puck for over 35 seconds to prevent the Islanders from pulling their goalie.  The Defense corps of Patrick Barrett, Nick Heaslip, James Carmilia, Tommy Chesna, Ryan Dusbalon and Janssen Sperling had a fantastic game stopping any odd man rushes and clearing out the front of the net.  The Goaltending tandem of Jared Norton and Aidan Goulding continued to play very well and made some very solid glove saves to keep the Islanders off the board…The Shamrocks would go 5 wins and 1 loss against the Islanders in the regular season.  Next up a trip to NY to play the CP Dynamo team to close out that regular season series.

 

Pee Wee 02 Major Orange Jan 3rd and 4th Round up

Friday, January 16, 2015, 2:27PM

The 02 Orange team started 2015 with a pair of wins 7-4 over the North Stars and 7-3 over the Northern Cyclones.

 

On Saturday the team hosted The North Star Selects.  Despite falling behind roughly half way through the first period the Shamrocks played tough and JJ Libirizzo (1-2-3) tied the game at 1 when he fired a feed from Drew Buckley (0-1-1) past the North Star goaltender.  The North Stars managed to take the lead again before RJ Kobierski (1-0-1) fired a shot from the point top corner knotting the game at 2.  RJ's goal was the result of terrific puck movement as Sean Malone (1-2-3) and Aiden Robinson (0-3-3) cycled the puck through the zone and found RJ.

In the second the Shamrocks went ahead for good scoring three times in the period Colin Savil (3-1-4) started the 2nd period surge jamming it past the goaltender with helpers going to Sean Malone and JJ.  After good forcehecking in the offensive zone Sean Malone flipped one in on the short side putting the Shamrocks up by 2.  The North Stars cut the lead to 1 before Colin scored again off of a feed from Cole Johnson (0-1-1) and Aiden Robinson.  In the third Colin completed the hat trick after knocking in a pass from JJ.  JT Monahan (1-0-1) closed out the scoring with a shot from the point after good puck movement from Colin and Aiden.  Both goaltenders made many great and timely saves.  None bigger than Nick Spinale's save on a penalty shot with less than two minutes in the 3rd period.

 

On Sunday the boys had a late game against the Northern Cyclones.  The Shamrocks struck early and often in the first period building a lead they would never give up.  Cole Johnson (1-0-1) started the scoring when he jammed in a loose puck from a Drew Buckley (1-1-2) shot from a JJ Librizzo (1-2-3) pass.  Drew Buckley scored from behind the net banking the shot in off the goaltender.  JJ picked the short side top corner after receiving the pass from Jared Green (0-1-1) extending the lead to 3.  Patrick Maloney (1-0-1) moved the lead to 4 when he scored off of a feed from Robert Bryan (0-1-1) and Brogan Chambers (1-2-3).  The North Starts got on the board but Brogan (assist to Aiden Robinson) quickly answered putting the Shamrocks back up by 4 at the end of the first period.  In the second the Aiden Robinson (1-1-2) scored in between a pair of North Star goals when he took a feed from Sean Cunningham (0-1-1) and was able to beat the North Stars goalie.  Sean Malone (1-0-1) closed out the scoring when he tucked a pass from Brogan between the goalies skates.  Both Shamrock goaltenders played a great game and made a number of key stops along the way.  Joe Shields was a wall in the 3rd period keeping the North Stars off the board helping to kill off 6 penalties including playing the last 1:21 of the game down 2 men.

 

Pee Wee 02 Major Orange Jan 10th Roundup

Friday, January 16, 2015, 2:25PM

The 02 Orange team dropped a tough one 5- 3 to the Bay State Breakers on Saturday.

 

The game started off as a goaltenders duel.  Nick Spinale and the goalie for the Breakers made several remarkable stops keeping the game scoreless through the first period.  The boys came out of the gate for second period firing on all cylinders and continued to pepper the Breakers goalie.  Half way through the second the Breakers were able to get on the board.  After a few bad bounces the Breaker were up 3-0.  Despite being down by three the Shamrocks continued to fight and got on the scoreboard with 33 seconds in the period when Patrick Maloney (2-0-2) fired a feed from Cam Chute (0-1-1) past the Breakers goalie.  The Breakers regained a three goal lead before Brogan Chambers (1-0-1) deflected a shot from Jared Green (0-1-1) past the goalie to close the gap to 2.  Patrick Maloney closed the Shamrocks scoring when fired another wrist shot over the goalie's shoulder after Will Larson (0-1-1) made a great play to keep the puck in the offensive zone.

Squirt Major 2004 Take Four League Games!

Monday, December 22, 2014, 9:49AM

After a couple of down weekends, the Squirt Major 2004 team got back on track with 4 big league games over the last two weekends.  The first two league games were against the rival Middlesex Islanders in a home at home series. The first game of the series was a home tilt for the Shamrocks and they came out flying and peppered the Islander goalie who was up to the task.  The Shamrocks would strike first when James Carmilia put one past the Islanders goalie with the assist going to Ryan McGuinness.  The Islanders would come back and get one on a defensive miscue and tie it up and the teams would go into the 1st break with a 1-1 tie.  The second period started out like the first with the Shamrocks striking first when Matt Elwell picked up a rebound of a Nick Heaslip blast and put it in the back of the net to take a 2-1 lead.  The Islanders wouldnt get many shots but they were able to connect on one again and tie it up 2-2 goint intop the 3rd.  The Shamrocks would strike fast when Elwell hit a streaking Rowan Mondello who would tip it by the Islanders goalie to make it 3-2.  The Isladners would come back and get another…the Shamrocks werent giving up and with 1 second left  in the game Jake Guertin would pass to Mondello and Mondello and Elwell broke in on a 2-1 with Mondello making a fantastic pass across the front of the net and Elwell would bang it home to get the win 4-3 with no time left on the clock.

The second game looked to be all Shamrocks from the start as they would control the puck most of the game sometimes over 5 minutes at a time…they got shot after shot on the Islanders goalie but he was tough all day.  The Shamrocks would strike first when Dominic Chesna would pick up a rebound in front of the net and slide it by the Islanders goalie with the helpers going to Cosmo Siano and Tommy Chesna.  The Islanders would get on the board in the second off a loose rebound and make it 1-1. The Shamrocks were relentless with the pressure but the Islanders goalie would not give an inch until 2 minutes left in the game.  The coaches put forward James Carmilia on the point and he would deliver with a huge blast which hit the goalie in the pads resulting in a nice rebound to Matt Elwell who would fire it by the Islanders goalie.  The Shamrocks would play good defensive hockey for the rest of the game and would take a dominating 2-1 victory in the game.

Next up was a tilt with the Dual State Riverhawks at Ristuccia for an early morning game. The Shamrocks were looking for revenge after letting an earlier game in the season go…The Shamrocks would come out on all Cylinders and control the game from the start.  The Shamrocks would get shot after shot on the River Hawks goalie and it paid dividends early and often. The first goal of the game was a short handed goal when penalty killer Matt Elwell anticpated a pass picked it off and broke in 1 v 0 on the goalie went to the back hand and cross bar down - 1-0 Shamrocks.  The Shamrocks would attack but the period would end 1-0.  The second period started out like the same with relentless pressure Elwell and Rowan Mondello would find Will Van Sicklin down low and Van Sicklin would deliver with a nice wrister short side to make it 2-0. That line wasn’t done as Elwell would find Van Sicklin who would fire a wrister blocker side and make it 3-0.  Next up would be Ryan McGuinness who would take a feed from James Carmilia and go top shelf from an impossible angle to make it 4-0 to end the period.  The third period would start out the same with Carmilia finding Dominic Cardillo who would fire it over the shoulder to make it 5-0.   Elwell would make it 6-0 firing a wrister through the goalies short side with helpers from Mondello and Jake Guertin.  The Shamrocks would hold the River Hawks off for most of the period but a defensive miscue would result in a late Riverhawks goal but Shamrocks would come out with a commanding 6-1 league victory.

The last game of the weekend was a home game vs. the South Shore Kings.  The worry was the second early game of the weekend would result in a sluggish start..however, the Shamrocks proved the coaches wrong and came ready to play.  Much like the last several games the SHamrocks would control play and would take the early lead 1-0 when Jake Guertin would razzle and dazzle from the point and fire a blistering wrist shot from the top of the cirlcle with helpers from Michael Pellegrino and Janssen Sperling.  The period would end 1-0 Shamrocks.  The Kings would come out hard in the second and would score early to tie the game at 1.  It was all Shamrocks from here on out as Ryan Dusablon would intercept a pass at the blue line take three strides in and fire a blast to beat the goalie and make it 2-1.  With 15 seconds left in the period Rowan Mondello would finish a bang bang play to make it 3-1 with great passes from Will Van Sicklin and Matt Elwell.  The third period would start fast and Dominic Cardillo would take it in from the blue line make a power move to the front of the net and slid a back hand under the goalies pads to make it 4-1.  Mondello would get his second making it 5-1 with the helper to Van Sicklin and Patrick Barrett.  Matt Elwell would make it 6-1 with the helper from a pinching Tommy Chesna.  The Shamrocks would finish the day with Dominic Chesna banging home a rebound on a Nick Heaslip shot to make it 7-1 and another league win.

The boys played four great games, with great skating, shooting and focus which paid off.  The goalie Tandem of Jared Norton and Aidan Goulding played very well and controlled the games when needed…The defense of Patrick Barrett, Nick Heaslip, Jake Guertin, Janssen Sperling, Ryan Dusablon and Tommy Chesna played very well as a unit and got a lot of shots on net and pressured the forwards of the other teams.  Next up the Jr Penguins tourney and a league game with the Dual State Riverhawks.

 

Pee Wee 02 Major Orange Nov. 22nd Round up

Monday, November 24, 2014, 2:00PM

The 02 Orange team earned a terrific 7- 4 win over the Greater Boston Vipers on Sunday.  The Shamrocks played well in all aspects of the game scoring even strength, shorthanded and on the power play. 

Sean Malone (2-1-3) opened the scoring for the Shamrocks half way through the first period punching it in after taking the feed from Aiden Robinson (1-1-2) and Robert Bryan (0-2-2).  Colin Savil (2-0-2) put the team ahead finishing it off after a nifty pass from JJ Librizzo (0-2-2) and Drew Buckey (1-1-2).  In the second period Aiden put the Shamrocks ahead to stay scoring off a feed from Sean Malone.  Drew Buckley added a goal when JJ Librizzo fed him the puck in front of the net.  RJ Kobierski (1-0-1) scored on a shot from the point when Will Larson (0-1-1) and Sean Cunningham (0-1-1) passed the puck around the zone looking for the open man and clear shot.  Sean Malone got his second of the game when Brogan Chambers (0-1-1) and Robert Bryan moved the puck into the offensive zone and crashed the net.  Colin Savil got his second of the game to close the out the scoring with an empty net goal in the final minute after taking the feed from Jared Green (0-1-1).  Both Joe Shields and Nick Spinale made several critical saves when called upon.  None bigger than Nick's stop on a penalty shot that could have put the Vipers within one.  The most impressive part of the game is that the Shamrocks got 18 points on 7 goals.

 

North Shore Shamrocks Peewee Orange -02

Wednesday, November 19, 2014, 6:19PM
On Saturday November 15th the Shamrocks traveled to “The Bog” to face the Bay State Breakers. While battling from behind three times to tie the game (1-1 , 2-2 and 3-3), the Shamrocks ultimately lost the game 4-3, never truly finding their rhythm during the contest. On Sunday November 16th The Shamrocks traveled to New England Sports Center in Marlborough to face-off with a strong Minuteman Flames squad. While the Shamrocks demonstrated they were ready to play from the drop of the puck, scoring in the first two minutes of the game on a beautiful shot by Sean Malone, the Flames balanced attack ultimately proved too much for the Shamrocks. The final score was 7-3 in favor of the Flames, as the Shamrocks battled hard until the final buzzer.

Shamrocks Squirt Majors continue to roll!

Thursday, November 13, 2014, 12:51PM
The Shamrocks were back home this weekend to take on the Dual State Riverhawks.  The game started off fast with both teams getting a lot of chances but the 1st period would end with no score.  The Shamrocks would start the scoring in the second period when Michael Pellegrino hit Nick Heaslip with a pass, and Heaslip woud make one move and fire a wrist shot top corner to make it 1-0 Shamrocks. The Shamrocks would get a good amount of chances and Will Van Sicklin would take the feed from Janssen Spering and fire a wrist shot by the River Hawks goalie to take a 2-1 lead.  The Riverhawks would capitalize on a bad pass by the Shamrock defense and tie the game at 2-2.  The Riverhwaks would get a power play goal early in the third to take a 3-2 lead.  Shamrocks would come right back with Matt Elwell tying the game with the helpers to Cosmo Siano and Rowan Mondello and tie the game 3-3.   Both teams would have plenty of chances and the Riverhawks would score with less than 8 minutes left to take a 4-3 lead.  The Shamrocks would dig deep and get a goal by Ryan Mcguinness with Van Sickling getting the helper and tying the game at 4-4.  Both teams would have multiple opportunities but the goalies on both teams would turn them all away.  The Shamrocks got called for a questionable late penalty and would have to kill the last 1 minute and 26 seconds of the game to secure the tie and remain unbeaten in the division.   The defense corps of Patrick Barrett, Ryan Dusablon, Nick Heaslip, Janssen Sperling and Jake Guertin played extremely well as did the goalie tandem of Jared Norton and Aidan Goulding.
The Shamrocks would travel to Hingham for a non-league game against the South Shore Conquistadors.  The Shamrocks would start off strong with many opportunities and scored 5 first period goals.  At the end of 1 it was Shamrocks 5 and Conquistadors 1.  The Second period would start slow with the Shamrocks getting two more and Conquistadors getting 2 with a score of 7-3 at the end of two.  The Shamrocks would start moving the puck in the third and get 5 third period goals vs. the Conquistadors 1 goal and would win convincingly 12-4.  Matt Elwell, Ben Sieve, Tommy Chesna, Will Van Sicklin and Michael Pelligrino all had two goals and Patrick Barrett and Dominic Chesna both had 4 helpers and James Carmilia would get 3 assists on the day.  Next week the Shamrocks return to league action hosting two games vs. the CP Dynamo team from Albany.

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!

Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 8:28PM

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.

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.

 

2004's WIN 9-2 at THE BOG!

Saturday, September 13, 2014, 8:06PM

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 Opening Weekend

Friday, September 12, 2014, 1:01PM

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, and ultimately opened the season with an 8-4 loss to the Bulldogs. However, The boys showed a lot of heart by not giving up after being down 7-0 at the start of the 3rd period.  A pair of goals by JJ Librizzo, a goal by Colin Savil and a final tally by Sean Malone closed the gap and gave the Shamrocks some momentum heading into their contest on Sunday.

On Sunday the boys came to play against the Northstars in Woonsocket.   Despite putting some quality shots on net, the Shamrocks just could not find the back of the net.  Some great saves by goaltenders Joey Shields and Nicholas Spinale kept the team in the game. However, the team once again found themselves trailing in the game falling behind 3 -0.  In the third period Anthony Pecci got the Shamrocks on the score board, scoring a short-handed goal with Robert Bryan adding another goal less than a minute later. Despite the late comeback the team fell short and lost 5-2.

All told it was a good start to the 2014-15 season for the Shamrocks, as the team showed a great deal of heart, providing there were many positive things to build on as we continue into the year.
