Wings MS Ice Hockey Team Ends Year With 10 - 2 - 2 Record

The Garden City Wings Middle School Ice Hockey team won one game and tied a second over the December 16 - 17 weekend and completed 2006 with a record of: 10 - 2 - 2.

Scoring in the first game, against the Massapequa Chiefs, started with a deflected goal by sixth grader Matt Greco off a shot by eighth grader Michael Borges. After an answering goal by the Chiefs, eighth grade center Ricky Yegelwel found the net with less than a minute left in the first period with an assist from eighth grade back Alex DeMolina. Eighth grade goalie David Wax took his position between the pipes at the start of the second period. Eighth grader Michael Borges started the scoring in the second period with a power play goal, assisted by backs Alex DeMolina and Bobby Wallace. The Chiefs responded with a goal of their own to make the score 3 - 2 in favor of the Wings after two periods. The DeMolina to Yegelwel combination found the net again in the third period resulting in a final score of 4 - 2.

The second game saw plenty of end to end action as the Wings hosted the Syosset Braves. Rookie goalie Zachary Bostrom played with determination for the entire game due to the illness of eighth grade goalkeeper David Wax. The Braves started the scoring and the first period ended 1 - 0 in favor of Syosset. The Wings tallied five times during the second period while the Braves added two more. The three Wings centers, Ricky Yegelwel, Albert Markopoulos and Chris Arena each scored once. Forward Matt Greco and back Daniel Marino each added one goal. The Braves fought back in th third period with several furious rushes, which resulted in two additional goals. Final score: 5 - 5.
