The Tupper Lake Peewee hockey team hosted a double header in the morning and afternoon of Saturday, December 8, taking on the Saratoga B team, and maintaining a seven-game winning streak.
Over the course of Saturday’s two games, the Lumberjacks put the puck in their opponent’s net 23 times and only let four into their own.
At 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, the Lumberjacks finished the game with a nine point deficit against Saratoga’s B team with a final score 10-1 for Tupper Lake. Mason Fowler and Karter Kenniston both scored hat tricks that morning. Logan Flagg put in two and Kyler McClain and Gavin Mitchel each scored one.
Sawyer Dewyea, Kyler McClain, Christian Moody-Bell, Gavin Mitchell and Mason Fowler all scored assists. Brayden Shannon protected the net in Saturday’s first game. Out of Saratoga’s 21 shots, Shannon saved 20!
After a short break, the boys returned to the ice at 2:15 p.m. but they didn’t plan on going easy on the Saratoga B team.
The peewee’s leading scorer, Karter Kenniston, put seven goals past Saratoga’s goal tender, maintaining his high scoring average. Logan Flagg scored two and Sawyer Dewyea, Mason Fowler, Gavin Mitchell and Kyler McClain each scored one. Kyclain assisted two goals and Sawyer Dewyea, Aiden Amell, Brayden Shannon and Phillip Lindsay each assisted goals as well.
The peewees will put their winning streak on the line and leave the comfort of home ice when they take to the road this weekend with games against Malone on Saturday, December 15 and Tri-Town on Sunday, December 16.
