Hockey White Training Group Game Day
Win Green 8, White 3

Saturday, February 6th featured another tight game in the ongoing “Saturday Game” series at Turner Arena. Cardigan Hockey’s “White” group faced off at 2:30 pm in a game that would prove to be competitive for its entirety.

Liam Burke ’23 put forth an incredible performance in net on the Green side of the ice, and was able to keep the White offensive at bay for the vast majority of the tilt—surrendering just three goals.

In front of Burke, Green’s attack was led by dominating performances from Reid Gueldenzoph ’22 (4 goals) and John Murphy ’22 (3 goals). Hudson Deck ’22 contributed to the offense by adding a tally of his own on a shot from the blue line that rang the post before ricocheting into the back of the net.

Though White carried the play for portions of the game, they were unable to capitalize on several Grade-A scoring chances, and as a result fell to a Green team riding strong finishing and goaltending. Adrian Moon ’23, Beau Brissette ’21, and John McNair ’23 all buried goals for the White squad in the losing effort.

The “White” hockey group’s next “Saturday Game” will take place on February 13th in Turner Arena, and will be available to watch on NFHS.com.

Tie

Saturday, January 30th saw a competitive game for the “White” hockey group in Turner Arena, whose winner was eventually decided in a shootout.

Excellent goaltending for both Green and White squads was the story of the afternoon, as dozens of dangerous scoring opportunities were turned aside by goaltenders Liam Burke ’22 and his counterpart, Coach Leisenring ’98.

Green’s offensive effort was led by Adrian Moon ’23, Cayden Van Dolah ’21, and John Murphy ’22, all of whom put up multiple-point efforts in an intense battle that was close to the finish.

On the other bench, White’s offensive output was highlighted by the efforts of Isaac Oberting ’23, Beau Brissette ’21, Danny Commerford ’22, and James Willett ’22. The group led a balanced White attack to a late-game comeback that forced overtime and an eventual shootout.

Cardigan White Team Game
Win Green 11 - White 7

After the first Saturday of the Cardigan Hockey Program’s slate of Green vs. White games, the sequel to the first episode did not disappoint. The “White” game, taking place on the afternoon of Saturday, January 23rd, proved to be a much more even contest than the week prior.

Green proved victorious in Week 2, with their winning effort being highlighted by some tremendous goaltending and next-level finishing. Brian Xi ’21 paced the Green attack with a hat trick. Additional contributors on the scoreboard for Green were John Murphy ’22 and James Morse ’22, each with two goals of their own, while Landon Beattie ’22, Teddy Stettinius ’21, Isaac Oberting ’23, and Church Salathe ’22 all added solo tallies to the Green offensive. Liam Burke ’23 had a superb showing in net, turning away several high-danger scoring chances that protected the Green lead for the latter stages of the game.

On the White side, there were some very bright spots that proved to be a silver lining in the losing effort. Notably among the higher points of White’s game were the efforts of Conor Szwez ’22 and Danny Commerford ’22, who buried 3 goals and 2 goals respectively. Their third linemate, Conor LeRoy ’23, contributed a goal and a few assists of his own to round out a great game. John McNair ’23 chipped in with a nice goal of his own, but the White attack fell just shy of mounting a late-game comeback.

Next “Saturday Game” for White will take place in Turner Arena on January 30th, and will be available to stream on NFHS.

Cardigan Hockey White Game
Win White 13 - Green 6

In the first Cardigan Hockey White game of the 2021 season on Saturday, January 16th, the story of the matchup was the offensive firepower of the White squad. Despite a well-played game by both sides, the White sticks were just too hot for Green to handle.

Conor LeRoy ’23 paced the White offense with 8 goals of his own—a performance known as “The Snowman.” Other contributors to White’s offensive onslaught included Church Salathe ’22, Nick Yoon ’21, Cayden Van Dolah ’21, Isaac Oberting ’23, and James Morse ’22.

On the Green side of things, Adrian Moon ’23 tallied a hat trick of his own to leave his mark on the game. John Murphy ’22 added a goal, as did Reid Gueldenzoph ’22 and Estyn Elkouh ’22.

While the scoreboard told the story of an unbalanced game, the play on the ice was far more evenly matched then any scoreboard would suggest. Ms. Courtney Hamilton played between the pipes for White, and put forth an impressive effort to turn away dozens of Green scoring chances.

Cardigan’s next White (Saturday) game is scheduled for January 23rd, and a matchup that will surely be closer than the year’s first contest.
