Action-packed night at the LSHL!
With another 8 games on Thursday night, there was action everywhere. Only 2 days into the season and we can already sense the tension between certain players. Rivalries are already starting and the season is only getting warmed up. Once again, the Reds picked up the most points this week with 7 points, followed by the Blacks with 6 points, and finally the Whites with 4 points.
Honorable Mentions of the Night:
Once again, for team Black, their most dangerous player was Damiano Savoca, notching 6 goals and 3 assists by the end of the night. But this week, Giuseppe Frenda also deserves an honorable mention for his aggressive defensive plays all night. During the lone shootout of the night, Savoca and D. Bilotta both scored to give their team the win.
For team Red, the new duo consisting of Maddalena and Caruso proved to live up to expectations. Maddalena’s LSHL debut was a good one, picking up 5 goals in 3 games, with 4 of those 5 being assisted by Caruso. With chemistry like this, it’s no wonder Maddalena already picked up a hat trick in only his 3rd game. Also, Pat Altomare, who missed out on last week’s action scored 4 goals in 5 games for his debut.
Although team White is still struggling to find their way, Anthony Cardinale put up some decent numbers to help out his team. He finished the night with 3 goals and 3 assists. Also, Sammy Famularo seems to be getting back on track as he finished the night with 5 goals and 1 assist. New goalie Gianni Ariemma made a good first impression making multiple big saves to try and keep his team in each game.
