Hockey - Boys Junior Varsity
vs. The Taft School
|Date:||December 1, 2012|
|Score:||3 - 4|
The Bears started their season on the road facing a perennially strong Taft club. With many returning players from last year's squad, expectations were raised to continue to build on the successes of last year and both veterans and newcomers made their impact felt immediately.
The first goal of the season was scored on a rush by Gray Riatti '14 and assisted by newcomer Barclay Gammill '16. The two generated significant offensive opportunities throughout the day, pouncing on turnovers and setting the bar high for what appears to be a natural pairing of two excellent skaters. The Bears continued their offensive streak scoring a goal late in the second period off a turnover generated by Jared Shatkin '13. Coming down the right wing in the offensive zone, Shatkin managed to find the back of the net with a shot that required pinpoint accuracy.
