MEB hockey continues to roll on this fall, with some teams finding their way and others looking for the winning combination – not unlike the Bruins these days…
Midgets found themsleves with a short bench on Friday night facing a full Everett/Revere team at the Veteran’s Memorial Rink in Everett. With only a handful of players, the team certainly got a workout and emerged victorious at the final buzzer. Their wininig strategy was simple – stay out of the penalty box – good idea, boys!
Our Pee Wees have continued to play strong hockey, with only a few losses in this young season, and this weekend produced another notch in the ‘W’ column. Playing in Lynn on Sunday evening (after the end of the Pats game thankfully), they routed the Lynnfield-Saugus Pee Wees, finishing the game with a score of 6-1.
The MEB Squirts have continued their roll as the undefeated squad in our ranks, in an early Sunday morning game where they defeated Lexington/Bedford in Everett. They are now 9-0 with the win, putting them in first place in the Valley Hockey League Squirt Central National AA division. This weekend they face Hyde Park Saturday afternoon at 2:00 in Charlestown, in what will be the first time this season these two teams have met.
While our Mites are still looking for their first win of the season, they are continuing to leave it all on the ice. This wekend they fell to Waltham for the second time this season. In a division where the first place team has just 4 wins, they are facing tough challenges, but keep playing with their hearts on their sleeves. Go MEB Mites!
In other news, what has become a tradition over the past few years in Malden each fall, the Home 4 the Holidays Street Hockey Tournament will be played on Saturday, November 28 at the Linden School hockey and basketball courts in Malden. Again this year, MEB will be the beneficiary of funds raised through the tournament, which draws teams of at least 10 “adults” to compete for the honor of this year’s champion. In its fourth year, this great event for those eager to show off their skills (or just talk trash as much as possible) promises to be a great one.
Lots of other fun to be had with Boston Bruins alumni appearing, concession stand, DJ, a visit from the big guy in the red suit, and raffles for all kinds of great stuff!
