PEEWEE AA vs OCHC (2000) on 10/1/11- The Gulls hosted the OCHC 2000s on Saturday evening and both teams came out flying looking for an early score. Both teams had some good chances and the Gulls were able to find the back of the net early on. Solid goaltending kept OCHC of the scoreboard and after 5 minutes into the game the Gulls started to take control of the game and set the tempo. Going into the second period the Gulls scored on a power-play and later on in the period added another goal to get a comfortable lead. In the third period the Gulls added two more goals to make it 5-0. One of the goals was shorthanded on a PK. The Gulls played very well with great passing and puck movement not allowing OCHC any room or space to stage a comeback. It was an overall team effort with great fore-checking and pressure from the offense, solid defense that also scored 3 of the 5 goals and good goaltending. Shots on goal were 16 for the Gulls and 15 for OCHC.
BANTAM A2 9/29/11- The Bantam A2 team finished off our preseason rally playing SDIA with a bang. We won 11-1 with a strong start, middle and finish. Coach was switching lines and experimenting for the upcoming season but nothing seemed to get passed our boys. With 40 shots taken, our Bantam A2 team is ready to start the 2011-2012 season off strong! Bring it on!!
The second period began with the Gulls quickly regaining the lead, 2-1 capitalizing on a Wildcats turnover; the goal was punctuated with a nice, strong, power forward move to the net and a good finish. The period ended 2-1.
One minute into the third period, the Gulls family breathed a healthy sigh of relief and we gained some breathing room with a tight angle shot, 3-1 Bantam A1. With less than 5 minutes to go, the Gulls put the game away on a nice pass to a wide open forward, alone in front. The game saw good goaltending and big stops by both net minders; the Wildcats goaltenders saves, and the Gulls missed chances kept the game way too close for comfort. It was a game punctuated with sloppy, disjointed play, and too many easy giveaways. In the defensive zone, the Wildcats had way too many uncontested chances, the defense constantly backing off the attacking player allowing them too much time and space. The whole team was guilty of puck watching and stick waving instead of taking the body, as the Wildcats entered the zone. Bantam A1 also got away from the simple game, working the system. Time after time the boys could have reloaded the offense by getting the puck back to the point, playing the high/low game. All too often the boys rushed a low percentage pass or turned the puck over. While there were a few nice end to end rushes, there was way too much "individual" play and not enough team generated offense, which the system and cycling the puck create.
Make no mistake, a win is a win, and the team took the necessary two points. There is no reason to hit any panic buttons at this time; Bantam A1 is a very talented side, with good team chemistry and well coached. The onus is squarely on the boys to step up their game and play as they have been taught, which requires maturity and focus; something they must bring in abundance when they hit the ice next Sunday, as Bantam A1 faces their first major test versus the Jr Ducks.
