Varsity Hockey off to a Great Start

The Massapequa Chiefs have had an outstanding start to their Varsity season with a record of 4-1 led by the seniors and their outstanding play from the team as a whole.  The Chiefs in their five games played have registered. 

The Chiefs played a very sufficient game to take down a solid Bethpage game. Goaltender Joey Giartanno only allowed one goal in the game and came up with some big saves in big moments. Also, the Chiefs didn’t give the Eagles much with their great defense. In December, the Chiefs registered three wins, tallying 28 goals in the four games.  

In fact, their biggest win was against Levittown/Hicksville 10-0. Dom Braun led the way in the crushing victory tallying a hat trick. In addition, Joe Raccoppi stopped all shots, recording his first shutout of the season.

Statistically, the Chiefs have been strong; they have recorded 33 goals in the five games played, averaging 6.60 goals per game and only allowing one goal per game. In the first period, they tallied 13 goals, which is the most they have scored out of any period of play.

Some players to watch include Rocco Braun, Dom Braun, Spencer Barrow and Jake Stella. Jake Stella and Rocco Braun are tied for the leaders on the team with 10 points. Both are great leaders, on the ice and off the ice. Braun and Stella can put the puck in the back of the net, along with great skating skills.  

Dom Braun has been a fantastic goal scorer this season, as he has tallied a hat trick in his seven goal season and leads the team in goals.  Braun can bring some physicality, alongside his fantastic wrist shot that can surprise a goalie at any given moment. Additionally,  he leads the team in powerplay goals.

Spencer Barrow brings a physical game and is strong on the puck at all times.  He’s a player who doesn’t give up on the puck and can give some points as well.  Currently, this season he has nine points in five games played. Plus, he had a power play assist!

Clearly, Massapequa’s ice hockey team has had lots of success and victories early on in the season. With more to come, these players will continue to work hard and play the sport they love.
