Looking at the results across the club’s top level teams this weekend indicated a fair number of split decisions.  All but one team earned points in the standings over the busy schedule.

The Jr. Bs took their opener 7-4 over the Valley Forge Minutemen, to take their 20th league win.  Mark-John Lotito scored 3 times, and assisted on a fourth for the first place Titans.  The team dropped the next one 3-2, on a 3rd period power play goal.  George Lotito scored the only 2 Titan goals. 

Jr. Cs split as well beating Tri-state selects 5-4, after Tri-state went on top 2-0.  With some settling down from the bench the Titans regrouped and stepped up their play to come out winners in the end.  Sunday the Metro Moose was the opponent and they have given us trouble this season.  They started out taking a 1-0 lead, which was much more lopsided but goalie Tubillea kept them in the game.  3 straight Moose goals to start the second opened up what would be an insurmountable lead.  After a timeout the Titans shut the Moose for the rest of the way, and added two goals, one by Brett Whelan and one by Ben Yuro from Mike Garbrandt, but it was not enough to catch the Moose.

The Midget 16 National squad also…split their weekend.  Coach Lotito’s team beat the Junior Flyers 3-1, with 2 goals by Andrew Canitano and 3 assists by Tim Kinsley.  Michael Hansen stopped 19-20 shots in the win.  Sunday they dropped one to Team Comcast 5-1 with Nick Lotito picking up the lone score.

The Midget 16 American  only played one game… fittingly they tied the Devils 3-3.  Anthony LoBianco’s second period tally was the equalizer.  DJ Grogan and David Ramos added a goal and an assist each.  Pete Stamberger made 43 saves and shut out the Devs after 12:04 of the second period.

Coach Haviland’s Bantams lost their first of the weekend at home to the Little Flyers 5-1 with Chris Deatrich scoring the only Titan tally, but they too split their weekend by topping the Devils Youth in a hard hitting game at South Mountain 3-0.  Anthony Stolarz stopped 30 shots in a shutout effort.  Adam Peterson ended the scoreless game with the ultimate game winner @3:34 of the second period.  Tyler Martin and Tyler Person added gravy to the dish.

 Coach Haviland’s PeeWee Majors went on the road for both game and also…split.  They lost to the league leading Rockets 6-1, with Tom Panico scoring the first but only goal of the game for the Titans, but they also won their other game this weekend, beating Valley Forge 5-2 with 11 Titans picking up goals or assists.  Randy Gorda stopped 20-22 shots.

Yes the Squirts lost both of their games, spoiling the complete split.  But Matt Swann and Robbie Feathers picked up a goal a piece for the weekend, when they played two of the toughest teams in their league.
