Atom A/Es kick off season on winnng note

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

After successful preseason training and 3 exhibition wins, the AE Atom team is looking forward with great optimism.

This year's team is focused around returning veterans and some new players experiencing rep play for their first time. Excellent netminding will be provided by Zaakery Rogers and newcomer Dakota Anchor. Solid blue liners will be led by rushing Josh Parkinson, heavy hitting Chad Carey, smooth passing Nick Castellan and Derek Vaile. Veteran Alex Tritchew moved back to blue line and is already making his big difference with his experience. Rookie Nathan Del Mastro is patient and calm will add his support to a team of veteran defense.

Up forward, speed, speed and more speed mixed with some great passing and shooting skill. All three lines have the ability to put the puck in the net but also have great speed in the back check.

This team understands that defensive zone coverage is a five-man effort. Centers this year are Ryan Fritz, Jacob Gillies, Zack Carr. Wingers are Michael Harris, Eric Houston, Alex Batey, Eric Gladiator, Spencer Fearon and Jacob Benallick. This is an exciting group to watch in the offensive zone. They use their speed and aggressiveness to put the pressure on the opposition's defence. Once in possession, creative playmaking has led to a winning record.

We can't forget the big kids! This year coaching staff is led by Frank Gladiator, who puts the focus on learning and having fun. Also behind the bench this year are Dean Castellan, Shawn Rogers, Mike Carr, trainer Ted Tritchew and keeping us all organized, Manager, Paul Batey.

Three games in, the Swiss Army/Carey's Paving A/E Atom Sabres have two wins and one close loss; they also reached the finals in the Georgetown Tournament.

In the season opener, Flamborough hosted the Erin Devils. The boys worked hard and came away with a 5-4 victory.

Carr opened up the season scoring in the first period with Vaile assisting. The Sabres' lead lasted until the 4:58 mark of the second period, with Erin getting on the score board.

Things really opened up in the third period with both teams trading goals.

Fritz popped his first of the season with Carr assisting. Flamborough took a two-goal lead when Houston scored (Jacob Gillies drew the assist). The Devils came back to tie it up with two quick goals of their own.

Fearon showed his determination with his first, unassisted to give the Sabres the lead once again. The Devils came right back to even up the count at four apiece just 10 seconds later.

But it was to be Flamborough's game, with the winner coming off Fritz's stick with just over a minute to go on the clock. This was Fritz's second of the game with helpers going to Houston and Vaile.

For game two, Flamborough traveled to Georgetown.

It was an exciting match-up; another see-saw battle but this time the Sabres came up a little short, losing 6-5 despite out-shooting the Raiders 24-16.

Georgetown got off to a 1-0 lead but the gap was closed just two minutes later when Carr drove to the net on a pass from Fearon.

The second period was close with the Raiders taking back the lead. Benallick tied it up again at the 11:58 mark in the third, with Vaile drawing an assist. The Raiders took the lead again only to be tied up 3-3 once again after Houston took a pass from Carr to hit the slot.

The Sabres took the lead 4-3 for the first time when Hawkins capitalized unassisted off a scramble in front of the Raiders' net. But the lead was once again taken away with two quick Georgetown goals.

Flamborough kept it coming with Harris scoring on a pass from Jacob Gillies to even things up once again. Unfortunately Georgetown had the last word at the 1:58 mark of the third period, this time taking the final lead, 6-5. Great effort Sabres!

Hockey fans who want to catch some of the Sabres action are welcome to come out to home games most Sundays at 1:30 p.m. at the Carlisle Community Center.

The team has also enjoyed some team building get-togethers where players and parents got a chance to get to know each other. The BBQ was great especially the road hockey. Parents rule!!!

The team also appreciates the communities support through our bottle drive held recently. It was a lot of fun and the kids worked hard to raise money for their team.
