Comments: It was another solid effort by the 2018 Orange squad at Stowe this past weekend. After a disappointing opening loss to the Penguins (in which the Necks battled back from a 6-2 second half deficit to tie the game late), the 18’s delivered their most impressive victory of the season, thrashing the New England Storm (which beat the Penguins 8-1) by a score of 10-2.
Everything came together for the boys against the older Storm squad, led by Kiernan Stone and John Tomaselli at defense, Nicky Sobell and Jack Meyer at middie, and superb attack play from Eric Civetti, Chris Bucking and Nick Bevacqua. Macklin Fitzpatrick was, once again, solid from the face-off X and delivered at both ends of the field all weekend. Another solid tournament for midfielder Reed Findlay as well, who battled through a groin injury and gave everything he had all weekend! The Necks closed out the tournament with a pair of wins on Sunday to earn a solid 3-2 record for the tournament.
Finally, special kudos to defenseman Patrick Kaveny who joined the Necks for his first tournament this weekend, and impressed throughout, both in terms of his athletic play and his adjustment to a new system and new teammates.
Great summer 2018s; keep up the hard work!!
