Wings Middle School Ice Hockey

The Garden City Wings Middle School Ice Hockey team split their last two games in November and compiled a 2 - 1 record during their second month of play of the '07 - '08 winter season.

On November 10, 2007 the Wings faced off against the Syosset Braves. Excellent passing by all three forward lines as they attacked the net resulted in a 7 - 1 score in favor of the Wings after the first period. The Wings added a goal in the second period and five more goals in the third period to make the final score 13 - 3. Sixth grade goalie Cody Mackston extended his perfect record this season by another scoreless period, while seventh grade goalie Zachary Bostrom limited the opponents to three goals during two periods. Seventh grade center Chris Arena scored a "hat trick" and one assist. Seventh grade center Conor Gibbons had two goals and one assist. The defense trio of eighth grader Robert Tomao, seventh grader Mark Brady and sixth grader Liam FitzGerald accounted for three goals and three assists. Seventh grade forwards Ryan Costigan, Jack Worstell and Matthew Greco tallied three goals and five assists. Sixth grade forwards John White, Tim Michel and Conor Gallagher added two goals and two assists, including the game winning goal.

On November 17, 2007 the Wings played a strong Levittown - Island Trees team for the first time this season. After the first period the score was tied 2 - 2. However, during a very physical second period that saw multiple penalties against both teams, the Wings mustered just one goal to their opponent's three. Both teams tightened their defensive play during the third period and the game ended with Wings on the short side of a 5 - 3 score.
